The fifth race on the 2011 Rosehill Guineas Day programme this afternoon is the $175,000 Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) due to jump at 2:50pm (AEDST) and here we have the latest Ajax Stakes betting update and late mail tips.
A field of 10 gallopers are left in contention for the Ajax Stakes win this afternoon following the early scratching of #3 Brazilian Pulse, the filly instead running in the Keith F Nolan Classic and winning in fine style earlier today.
Favourite in the 2011 Ajax Stakes field is now #9 Pureness, Gai Waterhouse’s talented Tale Of The Cat gelding firming right into $2.20 at Luxbet for the win.
With the only other runner at single figure odds being Under The Eiffel ($4.60 Luxbet), the Races.com.au team are confident Pureness is the right horse to back in the Ajax Stakes odds.
Drawn ideally in barrier four today and coming off a game third to Triple Elegance in the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m), Pureness has the form to win.
Last start they jumped from double-figure gate 11 and with a better run today will be hard to run down, especially looking back to see Pureness has won at this track and distance in September last year.
Back Pureness now to win the Ajax Stakes at the guaranteed best price for the biggest possible payout at Luxbet!
