March 9, 2012

Can Punters’ Pick Pinker Pinker Take Out Chipping Norton Stakes 2012?

It is going to be a muddy 2012 Chipping Norton Stakes at Warwick Farm on Saturday, but can the short-priced favourite Pinker Pinker make history and salute for the punters?

Pinker Pinker

Pinker Pinker is the punters' pick for the 2012 Chipping Norton Stakes on Saturday

Greg Eurell’s class Reset mare goes into the $350,000 Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) second-up for the season following an upset loss to King Mufhasa in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m).

While there are some historical facts and imposing hoodoos for the reigning Cox Plate winner to overcome, Pinker Pinker remains the dominant favourite in the Chipping Norton Stakes horse racing odds at bookmaker.com.au.

So will the likely Heavy track get the better of Pinker Pinker on Saturday?

Or can she become just the second horse in history to score the rare Cox Plate – Chipping Norton Stakes double in the same season?

See below for the Races.com.au team’s exclusive analysis of Pinker Pinker’s chances in the 2012 Chipping Norton Stakes, running as Warwick Farm Race 6 at 4:22pm.

  • Warwick Farm is not her favourite track, from eight attempts she has never won
