2011 Shannon Stakes Form Guide & Tips

The richest race on a metro programme would normally attract the most attention and action in the betting markets, but on Saturday at Rosehill it is the Shannon Stakes 2011 that has taken centre stage.

With just five horses in contention for the day’s official headline event, Golden Rose winner Manawanui paying $1.16 at Luxbet to win the $250,000 Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m), punters are turning to another Group 2 feature on the card for more excitement and value.

Due to jump at 4:00pm (local time) as Rosehill Race 6 tomorrow is the $175,000 Group 2 Shannon Stakes (1500m) which has drawn an impressive field of 11 gallopers.

Clear favourite in the Shannon Stakes odds at Luxbet is Secret Admirer who continues to gain support as the $2.35 top elect.

Grahame Begg’s Group 1 Flight Stakes winning mare is third-up for the season after two eye-catching seconds, most recently being beaten a mere nose by subsequent George Main Stakes winner Sincero in the Tramway over 1400 metres at Warwick Farm.

This is good form and she is the deserved favourite, but the Races.com.au team are sniffing an upset.

Shannon Stakes 2011 Tips – Rosehill Race 7 Betting

  • Punters Favourite: #3 Secret Admirer – $2.35 at Luxbet
  • Races.com.au Pick: #7 Fast Clip – Rated Special to win at $4.60 through Luxbet

Gai Waterhouse’s Snippetson four-year-old is ready for a win to bring their record to six from a baker’s dozen of starts.

They were eye-catching first-up beaten just a half-length in the Group 2 Sebring Sprint (1300m) at Rosehill on September 10, and look set to turn the tables on Saturday in preparation for the 2011 Cox Plate.

Secret Admirer is in two and is likely to settle back, giving Fast Clip from wide the chance to go forward early and lead.

He’ll take some catching if the Shannon Stakes plays out this way, and Secret Admirer’s sectional times just don’t look enough to catch Fast Clip at his best out ahead at the track.

  • Place Selections: # 3 Secret Admirer, #5 Torio’s Quest and #10 King Lionheart

We can see why the punters are coming for Secret Admirer, there is no denying her ability, so we are tipping her to run another close second which is sure to frustrate Begg!

She really does look better for the place here having a flawless 100% Place Rate, while her winning percentage is 33.33%.

Torio’s Quest is drawn well in five, comes off a very impressive first-up second to Master Of Design in the Sebring and has form up to the mile, cannot be ignored.

King Lionheart adds value to the Shannon Stakes First Four bets, one of four for Waterhouse and having won over the track and distance last start, one that could prove the upset bet of the day.

An interesting fact from the Shannon Stakes form guide is that Torio’s Quest and King Lionheart boast the equal best Win Rates of the field with 45.45%.
