It is the first of the five Classic Flat races of the season, and crowns the best early season three-year-old miler, who usually goes on to become of the stars of that season's Flat calendar.

The race itself is etched in prestigious history, since 1809 to be exact, with the aptly named Wizard striding to success to win a prize of, unsurprisingly, 2,000 Guineas.

Since Wizard's win the standard of horses to succeed in the race has grown and grown. The likes of Brigadier Gerard, Sir Ivor, Nijinsky, Dancing Brave, Nashwan and Sea The Stars all won the 2000 Guineas before going on to become some of the greatest horses in the history of racing.

Jockey-wise, Lester Piggott is famously associated with his wins in the 2000 Guineas in the modern-era. He landed the prestigious race five times, first winning aboard Crepello in 1957 and 35 years later celebrated his last Classic win Rodrigo De Triano in 1992.

As the race is run relatively early in the season, there is little or no three-year-old form to go when going about finding the winner.

Therefore, last season's two-year-old form is usually taken as the most reliable guide to predicting the outcome. That was certainly the case for the 2012 renewal which was won by champion two-year-old Camelot, who is trained by Aidan O'Brien.

As with many 2000 Guineas winners, Camelot also went on to win the Derby at Epsom a month later.

Looking ahead to the 2013 Guineas, trainer Jim Bolger looks to have a strong chance of winning his first Guineas with Dawn Approach (10/1 Ladbrokes), who is the son of Bolger's 2008 Derby winning colt New Approach.
