Triple Honour Hot Favourite in 2010 Craven Plate Field & Betting

Chris Waller’s Group 1 winning gelding Triple Honour will start the pronounced favourite in this Saturday’s $125,000 Group 3 Craven Plate (2000m) at Randwick’s highly anticipated Epsom Handicap Day.

Six-year-old Triple Honour is installed as the clear top pick to win the 2010 Craven Plate, currently paying $1.90 through Sportsbet after its eye-catching second in the Hill Stakes at Rosehill a fortnight ago.

Despite the dominance Triple Honour has over the betting, there are a number of other value picks in the Craven Plate field. 2010 Craven Plate Value Tips:

  • Purple (# 6) Each Way
  • C’est La Guerre (# 2) & The Embassy (# 5) to Place
  • Trifecta with Triple Honour (#1) and any of the above picks

Purple is the second favourite in the Craven Plate odds at $3.80 through Sportsbet, the Peter Snowden-trained mare coming off two third place finishes at Group level.

Meanwhile 2008 Melbourne Cup placegetter C’est La Guerre and Triple Honour’s ideally drawn stablemate The Embassy in barrier one look the best value Place bets.

Scheduled as Race 3 at 12:55pm, the 2010 Craven Plate is one of 10 quality races planned for Randwick on Saturday.
