Golden Slipper Winner Crystal Lily Heads 2010 Thousand Guineas Betting

With the action of the spring racing season starting to heat up over the next few weeks, trusted online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au has opened their ante-post betting markets on a number of the future feature races including the 2010 Thousand Guineas.

Three-year-old filly Crystal Lily, who was the country’s top two-year-old last season winning the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m), has opened as the pronounced early favourite paying $9 at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Trained by Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra at Flemington, Crystal Lily had her first up spring start in the Quezette Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday August 14.

Surprisingly the daughter of Stratum was beaten by Panipique, but despite the defeat she is still prime to pick up the honours in the 2010 Thousand Guineas.

Crystal Lily could also possibly have a run at Sydney in the Group 1 Golden Rose Saturday week before embarking on her Melbourne campaign and she is currently the $7 third-elect at Ladbrokes.com.au for the Golden Rose.

This year’s $500,000 Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) will take place at Caulfield on Saturday October 13 as part of the action of Caulfield Cup Day.

Other early favourites to become the 2010 Thousand Guineas winner include the Peter Moody-trained Willow Creek ($11), Encosta De Lago filly Dizlago ($12), David Hayes’ consistent Precious Lorraine ($13) and last start winner of the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes Obsequious ($13).
