Following the action of the big Group 1 races at the Royal Randwick today, the next quality event on the card is Race 9 – the $200,000 Group 2 Sydney City Lexus The Shorts (1200m) – jumping at 4:50pm.
The 2010 Sydney City Lexus The Shorts betting is dominated by star mare Hot Danish who is at a very short quote of $1.70 to win today’s showdown at Sportsbet.
The Les Bridge-trained seven-year-old had a brilliant start to the season coasting to victory in the Premiere Stakes first-up at Rosehill, the dual Group 1 winner seeking back-to-back spring wins today.
Drawn in barrier eight and due to be ridden by Tim Clark, Hot Danish is the horse to beat and is the classiest runner in The Shorts field.
