WA Guineas Betting 2011 – Punters Make The Call

Local Ascot-based horseman Simon Miller is looking forward to Saturday week’s major Festival of Perth Racing meeting with 100 percent enthusiasm as he prepares to saddle up the 2011 WA Guineas favourite in Ron’s Call.


Magic Albert gelding Ron’s Call is being heavily supported by the bookies and punters to maintain their flawless record this season when they line-up in the $350,000 Group 2 Sky Racing W.A. Guineas (1600m) at Ascot Racecourse on November 19.

WA Guineas odds at Luxbet have Ron’s Call as the $2.30 favourite over the Trevor Andrews-trained King Saul ($3.20), and looking at the three-year-old’s sensational form it is easy to see why.

After running fourth on debut at Belmont Park as a two-year-old back in May, Ron’s Call was sent to the paddock to mature, returning a little under five months later to start what has been a thrilling winning streak.

Taking out an 1100 metre sprint at Northam on September 25, Ron’s Call overcoming a wide barrier 10 draw and hefty 57.5kg weight, the improved galloper has gone on to win every race since.

“My horse has come a long way since being very shabby at Northam – he’s still got a lot of improvement in him,” Miller said.

“I’ve always had a big wrap on this horse.

“Everything he does is very freakish at home.”

Last Saturday they enjoyed their best win yet taking out the Listed Fairetha Stakes (1400m) by an easy four lengths, giving Miller every hope they can step up to the mile and Group 2 company for the WA Guineas without issue.

“He could potentially be the best horse I have trained,” Miller said of Ron’s Call.

“You can put him anywhere in a race and he settles.

“He’s still a work in progress and if we could ride him a few pairs back, he’d be even better again – he’s got a dynamic sprint.”

The Fairetha Stakes was Ron’s Call’s second straight win at Ascot, Perth’s premier racing venue, following on from their two and a half-length victory in the Westspeed 3YO Handicap (1200m) on October 22.

Their slashing four length success when stepping up to the 1400 metres for the first time indicated that Ron’s Call would hand the additional distance of the WA Guineas, but their breeding is iffy in regards to distance.

Still confident Ron’s Call will step up in the Guineas, Miller has also nominated them for the $500,000 Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) where they would face off against defending champ Playing God.

“In the back of my mind I know he is by Magic Albert, but the way he races I feel he will get the 1800 metres and he comes into it on a super weight on 52kg,” Miller said.

Ron’s Call is rated a $7 chance in the futures Kingston Town Classic odds at Luxbet which are led by Playing God ($3.60).
