In the latest betting markets for today’s $500,000 Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m), the surprise last-start winner of the Australian Guineas Shamrocker has been well backed in the Rosehill Guineas odds.
While star Kiwi colt Jimmy Choux remains the Rosehill Guineas punters’ favourite at a price of $3.60, slightly longer than his $3.40 odds yesterday, there has been money coming in for the sole filly of the Guineas field, Shamrocker.
The Danny O’Brien-trained daughter of O’Reilly was a Group 1 placegetter during the spring having run a game second to Brazilian Pulse in the 2010 Crown Oaks.
After running fourth to Southern Speed in the Group 3 The Mittys Vanity (1400m) first-up this season, Shamrocker unlucky in that run having struck interference, on March 5 she entered the Group 1 winners circle in a blowout result in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m).
O’Brien decided if she did it once she can do it again and today Shamrocker will face an open field of three-year-olds in the 2011 Rosehill Guineas, running as Race 7 at 4:10pm (AEDST).
After opening at $8.50, Shamrocker was swiftly backed into $7.50 before firming further in the Rosehill Guineas odds into her current quote of $7 through Luxbet.
Shamrocker could prove a great value bet and really come out and surprise her rivals again.
Given a two kilogram weight advantage over her male opponents in the Rosehill Guineas field today, Shamrocker has also drawn well with barrier eight giving jockey Damien Oliver a number of options in the running.
Other horses in today’s marquee race at Rosehill Gardens to have seen some attention from the punters include:
- #7 Domesky ($26 into $21 Luxbet) – Won the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) at Moonee Valley a week and a bit back, the distance is ideal, drops back slightly in the weights, will need to work hard on the straight to come back from this barrier but don’t discount
- #10 Absolutelyawesome ($4.60 into $4.40 Luxbet) – Consistent market firmer, Boss in the mount, favourite for the Derby next month, coming off an unlucky fourth in the Randwick Guineas – claims
- #12 Don’t Put It There ($401 into $201 Luxbet) – Still a definite no chance for the win, but why not try a $1 at these odds!
