The 2011 Listed Widden Stakes will be run as the first race of Royal Sovereign Stakes Day at Randwick this Saturday February 12, 2011.
Current short priced favourite is #1 Satin Shoes, paying $1.85 a win at Luxbet.
Satin Shoes has only had one previous start when she won by two and a half lengths at Randwick on February 1 , 2011.
Satin Shoes is already in fifth place in the market for the 2011 Golden Slipper on April 2, 2011, paying $15 at Luxbet.
So after drawing barrier one in the 2011 Widden Stakes it is no stretch to assume Satin Shoes will make it two in a row.
Our second pick is #8 Fast Shanti who is presently paying $5 a win at Luxbet.
Fast Shanti is trained by Gerald Ryan and has been lucky enough to draw barrier two in the 2011 Widden Stakes.
The team at Races.com.au is finding it hard to look past #5 Elite Falls, who has won one out of two previous races.
The More Than Ready filly won her last start at the $252,000 Microflite Inglis Banner at Moonee Valley on October 23, 2010.
Elite Falls hasn’t covered the 1,100 metres before, but we think she possesses an extraordinary amount of raw talent that should get her over the line as one of the first.
Elite Falls is presently paying $6 at Luxbet.
Another chance is #2 Shared Reflections who won her first and only start at Warwick Farm last month.
Trained by Gai Waterhouse, the two-year-old filly has drawn the widest barrier (8) in the race, which will most certainly be a disadvantage, but if the race plays in her favour we believe she will be a big threat to the rest of the field.
Shared reflections is currently at $10 with Luxbet.
