2010 San Domenico Stakes Betting Preview – Solar Charged the Favourite

This Saturday the excitement and betting action of the 2010 Sydney Spring Racing Carnival kicks into gear as the esteemed Royal Randwick hosts New South Wale’s first group race of the season, the $125,000 Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1000m).

Nine classy sprinters will take to the track to fight it out in the 2010 MTA San Domenico Stakes, with connections hoping for a win to put their horse’s spring campaigns on the right start.

It is very open field with a number of top selections at good odds through Ladbrokes.com.au as many of last season’s leading two-year-olds are on show.

The early pre-race favourite, however, is lightly raced filly Solar Charged currently paying $2.40 through Ladbrokes.com.au.

The John O’Shea-trained Solar Charged was the standout winner at their barrier trial last month winning by over seven lengths showing she was ready to strike this spring.

Solar Charged, due to be ridden by Corey Brown, has plenty of speed and if she finds the front early will be hard to beat.

Another top chance is last year’s Golden Slipper runner-up Decision Time.

Trained by Clarry Conners, the Foreplay gelding is heading towards the $1 million Golden Rose at Rosehill on August 28 and is the second-elect in the Ladbrokes.com.au markets paying $4.20 for Saturday.

Drawn well in barrier three and due to be ridden by champion hoop Stathi Katsidis, Decision Time can win this at juicy odds.

Meanwhile Gai Waterhouse’s More Than Ready colt Brightexpectations and Peter Snowden’s Lonhro filly Obsequious both look good for Place bets through Ladbrokes.com.au.

The 2010 MTA San Domenico Stakes is set to jump as the sixth race at Randwick’s cracker eight-event card.

If you fancy a punt on the race and get your own spring season off to a winning start, don’t do it at the TAB.
