Military Rose Drifts in Golden Slipper Betting

Pre-race favourite for Saturday?s $3.5million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m), Military Rose, has again drifted in the betting markets out from $3.60 yesterday to $3.80 this morning with Ladbrokes.com.au.

The unbeaten General Nediym filly is still the top elect for the 2010 running of the richest race for two-year-olds in the world, but some of her classy rivals including Crystal Lily and Brightexpectations have started drawing the attention of the punters ahead of Saturday?s showdown.

The Gillian Heinrich-trained Military Rose lost some favouritism after drawing the less than ideal barrier eight for the 2010 Golden Slipper while Sweet Embrace Winner Crystal Lily came up trumps in the draw with the cherished barrier draw one.

Some race bettors have also abandoned Military Rose after the previous wet track forecast for Rosehill on Saturday is now expected to dry up.

Crystal Lily, currently the second favourite at $5 with Ladbrokes.com.au, will be the one to look out for should the 2010 Golden Slipper be run on a good track, while if the rain persists a wet track will work to Military Rose?s advantage.

If the favourite salutes and Military Rose maintains her unbeaten record on Easter Saturday, then she will become the first filly in history to secure the Magic Millions Classic ? Golden Slipper double.
