This Saturday the esteemed Royal Randwick racecourse will host their richest race of the Sydney autumn carnival, the coveted $1.5 million Group 1 Emirates Doncaster Mile (1600m).
A capacity field of 20 horses have been accepted for the 2010 Doncaster Mile and the quality of the competition is the best the race has attracted in years.
The hot pre-race favourite for the 2010 Doncaster Mile at $3 with Ladbrokes.com.au is Australia’s favourite mare, Typhoon Tracy.
Trained by the prolific Peter Moody, the four-year-old daughter of Red Ransom has enjoyed an almost impeccable career to date having won 10 of her 13 starts for a tick off $2 million in prizemoney.
Recently Typhoon Tracy has celebrated Group 1 wins in the Futurity Stakes (1600m) and the Queen of the Turf Stakes (1500m) and has been well-backed by the punters to add another elite level triumph to her name despite drawing awkwardly with barrier 14.
Two horses share equal second favouritism in the betting markets at the moment, with stablemates Danleigh and Rangirangdoo paying $6 through Ladbrokes.com.au.
The Chris Waller-trained duo have an impressive collection of wins between them, especially with six-year-old Danleigh coming off a victory in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes.
Danleigh and Rangirangdoo, starting from barriers 15 and 10 respectively, will also be accompanied on the field on Saturday by a third horse from the stables of Waller, the 2008 Doncaster Mile winner Triple Honour.
Last year’s winner Vision And Power is also looking for back-to-back success and will jump from barrier eight with Michael Rodd aboard.
The impressive 2010 Doncaster Mile final field also includes the Gai Waterhouse-trained Theseo drawn out wide in 17. Theseo had a brilliant start to the autumn winning both the Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) and the Ranvet Stakes (2000m) before running a gallant fourth in The BMW (2400m) last start.
Meanwhile the Anthony Cummings-trained Recoup De Fortune will now join stablemates Road To Rock and Prima Nova in the Doncaster, the first emergency gaining a start following the scratching of Walking Or Dancing from the 2010 Doncaster Mile.
Of Anthony Cummings’ three-horse contingent, Road To Rock looks his strongest chance after drawing ideally with the prized barrier one.
