The $3.5million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) will light up the Rosehill racetrack this Easter Saturday and in anticipation of the richest race for two-year-olds we have a look at the top six contenders and their chances of winning.
Unbeaten filly Military Rose has been the talk about town, the classy Queensland juvenile going for her sixth straight victory.
But a mid-field barrier draw has opened the field up, giving any number of the early paced runners drawn ideally a chance of success in the coveted 2010 Golden Slipper.
The fillies are dominating the betting markets, so the question remains whether they will be able to live up the high expectations and hold off some of the impressive young colts and geldings including Beneteau and Brightexpectations.
Australia’s premier online bookmaker for racing, Ladbrokes.com.au, have established six clear pre-race favourites for the AAMI Golden Slipper this year – Military Rose, Crystal Lily, Brightexpectations, Beneteau, Solar Charged and Chance Bye.
