2010 Railway Stakes Odds Still Dominated by Favourite Colour Correct

The bookies will be praying that Colour Correct doesn’t come through and take out today’s $1 million Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at the opening Festival of Perth Racing feature meeting at Ascot Racecourse, with big money continuing to pour in for the favourite.

Third placegetter to Sniper’s Bullet in last year’s edition of the premier WA race, Colour Correct has been heavily backed in the 2010 Railway Stakes odds sitting at the top of the betting markets at bookmakers around the country.

Leading online bookie Luxbet installed the six-year-old as the $4.60 favourite when markets opened on the Railway Stakes.

Since then Colour Correct has firmed into $4.40 and the punters continue to take them.

Reigning Railway Stakes winner Sniper’s Bullet has drifted out to $10 to make it back-to-back wins today after originally opening as an $8 chance.

A wide barrier draw, inconsistent recent form and hefty 58kg weight allocation have scared punters away from Sniper’s Bullet despite claims from connections including trainer Tracey Batley that the seven-year-old is in fine form for today’s showdown.

Money has also come in for the second elect, with John Thompson’s smart four-year-old Trusting firming in from $6.50 to $6.

Trusting has real claims with a solid last start run in the Emirates Stakes, good barrier five draw and history in their favour as a four-year-old.

Trusting’s stable mate Gathering has also caught the attention of the punters, the fellow Tale Of The Cat four-year-old now at $15 to win, in from $18.

There has also been recent bites for Famous Roman, backed in from $10 to $9.50.

Drawn in barrier two, there were early concerns over the health of the Jim Taylor-trained Famous Roman after they bled following their Lee Steere Stakes win earlier in the month.

However, confidence has been reinstated with the six-year-old showing no signs of ill health and studying their impressive recent form in Perth it is little wonder the money is now coming in.

One of the big drifters in the market is Sydney raider Triple Honour, now at juicy $18 odds to cause an upset.

Despite their price, the Races.com.au team have Triple Honour rated special to win the Railway Stakes today and think the Chris Waller-trained galloper can rise and defeat the rest of the field.
