Best Golden Slipper 2011 Betting Tips – Sepoy to Win Ahead of Shared Reflections

There is just one day to go before a field of the season’s best two-year-olds take to the track at Rosehill to contest the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) and here the Races.com.au team have the winning 2011 Golden Slipper betting tips.

Set to run as Rosehill Race 7 at 4:05pm (AEDST) this Saturday, the 2011 Golden Slipper field features 16 starters plus one emergency.

Sepoy

Sepoy is the Races.com.au team's tip to win the 2011 Golden Slipper

Easing favourite in the Golden Slipper odds is Peter Snowden’s Blue Diamond Stakes winner Sepoy.

The Darley-owned colt won his first four starts successively all at stakes level, most notably beating a crack field in the $1 million Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) by an impressive 4 ½ lengths in February.

Sepoy’s magic run, however, came to a shock stop on March 19 when he was beaten three quarters of a length by fellow Slipper rival Smart Missile in the rain at Rosehill in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m).

The track that day was rated Dead, but the ground was more on the Slow side and Sepoy just didn’t let down in the wet.

Still, when it comes to the Slipper horses should be forgiven for their last run.

He didn’t fancy the deteriorating going at Rosehill last start and although Sydney has seen recent rain, the prediction for tomorrow is for fine weather and plenty of wind to dry out the track and bring Sepoy right back into contention.

Sepoy is the top-rated runner in tomorrow’s Golden Slipper field and Snowden would not have him there if he didn’t think the favourite was 100% fit and ready for the challenge.

Sepoy’s price drifted out to $3.60 in the market after he drew awkwardly with gate 10 for tomorrow.

Still, he is a versatile horse in the way he can be ridden and jockey Kerrin McEvoy should be able to overcome the draw.

The current Golden Slipper price for Sepoy to win is very backable and the Races.com.au team believe this is not an outsiders’ race and that the favourite will win.

Rosehill Race 7 Betting – 2011 Golden Slipper Tips

  • #1 Sepoy – Rated Special To Win
  • #12 Shared Reflections – Add into Exacta with Sepoy for Great Value

Our pick of Sepoy’s rivals to run second in the Golden Slipper tomorrow is $15 outsider Shared Reflections.

Prepared by three-time Golden Slipper winning trainer Gai Waterhouse, progressive Umatilla filly Shared Reflections represents great value.

A winner of two of her three career starts, Shared Reflections most recently came into Slipper contention with a nice victory in the Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) at Warwick Farm on March 12.

She has the ability to hit the line hard and improves a couple of lengths each start. Her challenge tomorrow and for jockey Damien Oliver, is for her to come on significantly since her last run.

Also in Shared Reflections’ favour is her good sectionals and ideal barrier six draw.

  • #2 Smart Missile – Top Trifecta Tip

Anthony Cumming’s unbeaten son of Fastnet Rock is the only horse to have defeated Sepoy to date when they claimed an upset in the Todman Stakes on March 19.

There has been lots of money for Smart Missile in the Slipper markets ever since, even more so after he drew barrier five for tomorrow’s showdown.

Punters, bookies and even other Golden Slipper jockeys including Satin Shoes’ mount Hugh Bowman are tipping Smart Missile as the horse to beat.

We believe he has his claims, however, having had just two starts to date this is not his race to win.

  • #6 Salade – Best Exotics Pick

Bart Cumming’s lightly-raced Snitzel colt Salade was ultra impressive last start on debut winning the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes at this track and distance just last Saturday.

His winning time was also very impressive and if it weren’t for the history against and his tough barrier 12 draw Salade would be in our top three.
