Curtana Tops Wenona Girl Handicap 2012 Odds

Peter Moody’s beaten Oakleigh Plate runner Curtana has opened top of the markets for her next-up assignment in the 2012 Wenona Girl Handicap at Royal Randwick on Randwick Guineas Day this Saturday.


Dystopia has opened favourite to win the 2012 Wenona Girl Handicap at Randwick on Saturday

A competitive three-year-old two years back finishing second to the boom Star Witness in that year’s Coolmore Stud Stakes before her Melbourne Cup Day win at Flemington, the now four-year-old Exceed And Excel mare Curtana is the best fancied of the 17 female thoroughbreds set to contest the $100,000 Listed Wenona Girl Handicap (1200m) this weekend.

Out to break a winning drought that goes back to May last year, Curtana pays around $4.60 in the Wenona Girl Handicap odds at bookies around the country.

Drawn in barrier six with her famous stablemate Black Caviar’s regular rider Luke Nolen engaged, Curtana races second-up for the year following her first-up seventh when beaten only one and a half lengths by Woorim in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield last month.

Following Curtana in the Wenona Girl Handicap betting markets are then Dystopia and Alberton Park who are rated around $5.50 each at the bookmakers.

Chris Waller’s competitive Redoute’s Choice five-year-old Dystopia is out for her third straight win in Sydney this summer following a big win over Tiger Tees at Warwick Farm over 1300-metres and then her gritty victory in the Listed Triscay Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on February 25.

Dystopia is drawn favourably on the rails in barrier one and will be ridden by Hugh Bowman.

Triscay Stakes’ runner-up Alberton Park, meanwhile, has barrier 13 to overcome if she is to turn the tables on Dystopia in the Wenona Girl on Saturday.

The John O’Shea-trained daughter of Thorn Park will be ridden by Jim Cassidy as she looks to return to the winners’ stall for the second time this prep, Alberton Park also showing good form to finish just over a length away fourth to Steps In Time in the Group 2 NSW Thoroughbred Breeders Classic (1200m) at Warwick Farm two back.

Just one other runner currently pays under $10 to upset the top three in the Wenona Girl Handicap field and markets with the Anthony Cummings-trained Gybe, resuming after a three and a half month spell, at around $9.

Other longer-priced chances that could prove the value bet of the day through include Guy Walter’s consistent Commands six-year-old Balmont, another daughter of Commands in the Peter Snowden-trained Mascareri and John Thompson’s Encosta De Lago four-year-old Potions.

Updated markets for the 2012 Wenona Girl Handicap are due to open at our preferred online betting agency shortly.
