Roy Higgins Quality 2012 Odds Tight

The bookies and punters are having a hard time determining the clear top pick for the 2012 Roy Higgins Quality at Flemington’s Australian Guineas Day this Saturday, four of the nine horses under double figures, three of which are within 40 cents of each other.

Currently two stayers share favouritism in the Luxbet markets for the $125,000 Listed Roy Higgins Quality (2600m), the 2012 Adelaide Cup lead-up to run as Flemington Race 2 at 1:20pm (VIC time) on Saturday.

Michael Moroney’s imported Irish galloper and 60kg topweight Drunken Sailor and the Robert Smerdon-trained mare Persian Star are tied on $3.50 in the Roy Higgins Quality odds at Luxbet.

Tendulkar seven-year-old Drunken Sailor has been in good form in his two runs back this season since finishing eight lengths away 12th in last year’s Melbourne Cup.

First-up over 1800-metres at Caulfield he finished a game third behind Rainbow Styling before his last-start second to Norsqui with 60kg on his back in the Listed Mornignton Cup (2400m).

Going up another 200-metres with Damien Oliver in the saddle again, Drunken Sailor is a genuine chance from barrier four on Saturday.

While they have proven they can carry big weights, Drunken Sailor still must give a minimum 5.5kgs to his rivals in the Roy Higgins.

Equal favourite Persian Star will have just 54kg with Glen Boss aboard, the Shot Of Thunder seven-year-old to jump from barrier two.

Occupying the third line of Roy Higgins betting in the latest Luxbet markets is then Perth Cup winner Western Jewel who has been backed in from $4 to $3.90 despite the Grant Williams-trained mare’s fifth in the Mornington Cup in her maiden interstate run.

The last of the single-figure chances is the Cheviot Beach paying $6.50.

Prepared by Nigel Blackiston, the Fottstespinthesand five-year-old vies for back-to-back Flemington wins after their last-start victory when defeating Prizum and Persian Star in the Gurner’s Lane Handicap (2000m) a fortnight ago.
