Highlighting a terrific nine race line-up at Rosehill Gardens tomorrow is the $600,000 Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) for fillies and mares and here we have the best 2011 Coolmore Classic betting tips.
This year’s Coolmore Classic is set due to jump at 4:10pm (AEDST) as Rosehill Race 7 tomorrow and 16 horses remain in contention after an elevated temperature forced the early scratching of #5 Lady Lynette from the field.
It is a relatively open showdown if the Coolmore Classic odds are anything to go by as six of the runners are paying $10 or under to win at our preferred online bookmaker Luxbet.
With many of the big name mares out of the race including More Joyous (running in the Group 2 Canterbury Stakes at the same meet instead), Hot Danish (ruled out of the Sydney Autumn and Brisbane Winter Carnivals due to injury) and the now-retired Typhoon Tracy, some of the lesser-known runners get their chance at Group 1 glory in the Coolmore Classic 2011.
Firm favourite in the Coolmore Classic betting markets at Luxbet is #7 Aloha paying $5.
Mick Price’s Encosta De Lago mare Aloha certainly has her admirers after beating home Flying Tessie by two lengths last start in the Group 3 PFD Services Stakes (1400m) at Flemington first-up, but the Races.com.au team think there’s more value to be found laying the favourite.
After examining the Coolmore Classic field and form we are tipping an upset Coolmore Classic result and have #4 Graceful Anna rated special to win.
2011 Coolmore Classic Tips – Rosehill Race 7 Betting
- Coolmore Classic Winner: #4 Graceful Anna – $10 at Luxbet and firming so bet now!
Drawn ideally in barrier four and due to be ridden by champion hoop Damien Oliver, Canny Lad mare Graceful Anna is in the perfect form for this having run a game second in her three most recent starts all at Group level.
Ready why we think Graceful Anna Can Cause an Upset 2011 Coolmore Classic Result.
- To Finish Second: #3 Palacio De Cristal
One of the single-figure favourites in the odds currently paying $8.50 through Luxbet after drawing on the rails.
Grahame Begg’s Encosta De Lago mare is a real danger here despite their less-than-impressive recent form on paper and her habit of missing the start (18 times from 25 starts).
Finished a game third behind Alverta in the Coolmore Classic 12 months ago from an awkward barrier, drawn better this time and if track is Dead will be flying.
She loves to chase and always pulls out great late sectionals so could be close.
- Trifecta Tip: #4 Graceful Anna from #3 Palacio De Cristal and #15 Happy Hippy
Value pick of the field, there has been zero love for John Thompson’s Shamardal mare who has drifted out from $71 to $101 at Luxbet.
These are very generous odds and we know the form isn’t really there but she is a black-type winner over the 1500m distance so don’t discount.
- Add into Exotics: #1 Melito
Has class as a dual Group 1 winner but is too heavily weighted (59.5kg) and out too wide (barrier 10) to finish in the money here.
