Smart Missile explodes onto 2011 Golden Slipper markets

Smart Missile launches towards the 2011 Golden Slipper after his staggering upset win in the 2011 Todman Slipper Trial.

With the odds on favourite Sepoy never clicking into gear the Anthony Cummings trained colt came from last on the turn to grab the lead in less than 100m and never looked like being headed.

While many will make excuses about the track and the weather conditions in a horrible day at Rosehill, the fact remains Smart Missile methodically and convincingly broke the unbeaten run of what was looking like the shortest Golden Slipper favourite in the events history.

He was a rank outsider for the race at $21, paying a similar level in futures markets for the Golden Slipper itself.

With this win expect that to plummet, with single figure odds almost a certainty.

You could be excused for not having heard of the horse before with only a single race on his resume, coming last year in the Breeders Plate which he won by more than a length.

It was a bold move by Cummings to only give him the one chance to shine before the Golden Slipper but it’s worked wonders.

It remains to be seen what happens to Sepoy following this defeat but it’s unlikely to be as  catastrophic as many people think.

Many will forgive him on the wet track in driving rain and if anyone can bring him around it is Peter Snowden.

The performances in the Reisling Slipper Trial now become even more important, with the performances of the fillies having a huge effect on market odds.
