The closing race of Randwick’s Epsom Handicap Super Saturday today is Race 10, the $100,000 Listed The Big6 Angst Stakes (1400m), due to jump at 5:30pm.
The 2010 Angst Stakes will be contested by a field of 10 mares following the scratching of #1 Spirited One, #7 Absolute Faith and #13 General’s Sniper.
The pronounced favourite to win the final race at Royal Randwick today is Shannara currently paying $2.50 through Sportsbet.
The Peter Snowden-trained daughter of Octagonal is coming off a fourth place finish to Trim in the Research Stakes and is set to start from a midfield barrier with star hoop Corey Brown aboard.
A win by Shannara this afternoon would top off a fairy tale day for Snowden and the Darley stable, who took out a Group 1 quinella with Erewhon and Retrieve in the Spring Champion Stakes.
Shannara is the classiest mare of the field and is our top pick to win.
