The action of Epsom Handicap Day continues at Randwick with Race 3, the highly anticipated $125,000 Group 3 Chandon Craven Plate (2000m) due to jump at 12:55pm.
The first Group status race on the Randwick race card today, the 2010 Chandon Craven Plate will be contested by a small but high quality field of seven gallopers.
The odds-on favourite to win is #1 Triple Honour leading the odds at Sportsbet paying $2.15.
The Chris Waller-trained gelding is a veteran of 35 career starts and is coming off a solid second to Descarado in the Hill Stakes (1900m) at Rosehill and looks very hard to beat from barrier four.
