The 1,000 Guineas Trial Stakes was a flat horse race in Great Britain open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It was run over a distance of 7 furlongs (1,408 metres), and it was scheduled to take place each year in early April.



The event was originally held at Ascot. The present grading system was introduced in 1971, and the race was classed at Group 3 level. It was staged at Newmarket in 1978, and transferred to Salisbury in 1979. It was relegated from Group 3 status in 1983, and discontinued after 1986.

The race served as a trial for the 1,000 Guineas Stakes. The last horse to win both events was Full Dress in 1969.

The equivalent race for colts was the 2,000 Guineas Trial Stakes.
