Today while the action of Cox Plate Day at Moonee Valley takes centre stage, punters can also find great value in WA with the $125,000 Group 3 Prince of Wales Stakes (1200m) scheduled as Race 7 at Ascot jumping at 7:45pm (AEDST).
The 2010 Prince of Wales Stakes field features 11 top gallopers with Idyllic Prince and Waratah’s Secret leading the betting markets as the equal $4.80 favourites.
However in an open field where many horses have claims, the Races.com.au team are tipping an upset and have selected Grand Nirvana as the best value runner to win today’s showdown.
Ascot – Race 7 – Prince of Wales Stakes
- Odds-on Favourites: #2 Idyllic Prince and #10 Waratah’s Secret at $4.80 Luxbet
- Races.com.au Favourite to Win – # 3 Grand Nirvana at $8 Luxbet
The Fred Kersley-trained Grand Nirvana is at a generous quote of $8 to win the Prince of Wales Stakes at Luxbet.
Despite drawing wide with barrier 11, the local five-year-old Scenic gelding has been slightly flat in his two season starts, which is why the punters are hesitant to get behind him.
However, having won the Belmont Sprint back in June the tough galloper is improving slowly this season and after a run here last start is sure to improve today.
