Rosehill Racing – 2011 Todman Stakes Tips

The 2011 Todman Stakes will be the first of six Group level races to be run at Rosehill Gardens as part of Coolmore Classic Day this Saturday March 19, 2011, and here you will find the hottest insider tips for the race.

The Group 2 Todman Stakes will be worth $300,000 and is the final lead-up race to the 2011 Golden Slipper for most of the field.

This year the Todman Stakes, which is also known as the Todman Slipper Trial, has only attracted a small field of five runners.


Hot favourite Sepoy will only take on four rivals in the 2011 Todman Stakes

This may be in part due to the freakishly talented Sepoy running in the 1,200 metre race, with many trainers choosing to avoid running their horses against the seemingly unbeatable colt.

Sepoy will be looking for his fifth straight victory with a win in the 2011 Todman Stakes.

If the Elusive Quality colt does win the 2011 Todman Stakes, as is tipping him to do, he will only further cement his favouritism in the 2011 Golden Slipper betting, in which he is currently paying short odds of $1.90 for the win at Luxbet.

Sepoy has drawn barrier four for Saturday’s race and will be ridden by jockey Kerrin McEvoy.

For second, we are tipping Smart Missile, who will be having his second career start in the 2011 Todman Stakes.

Smart Missile won his first start in the Listed NSW Breeders Plate by a length and a half and will be coming up against a Group quality field for the first time in his young career.

The Fastnet Rocket colt has drawn barrier two for Saturday’s Todman Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Glen Boss.

We are confident that Foxwedge will finish in the placings after his stellar performance in the Listed Clarry Conners Plate at Warwick Farm on March 5, 2011, where he won by a convincing two lengths.

The two-year-old colt is currently third favourite for the 2011 Golden Slipper, paying odds of $9.50 at Luxbet, so punters will be watching the 2011 Todman Stakes with avid interest.

Foxwedge will jump from barrier one on Saturday and will be ridden by jockey Nash Rawiller.
