Race-favourite Nobby Snip is set to record a third consecutive victory if the gelding can win the 1200 metre 2012 Eskimo Prince Stakes at Royal Randwick tomorrow.
The Gai Waterhouse trained horse has been in sensational form and followed up a win in the Pony Express Holdings at Canterbury with an impressive victory in the Fireball Quality at at Rosehill on March 3.
He is the rightful $3.35 favourite at bookmaker.com.au and the Races.com.au team can not look past him to take out the $100,000 Listed event.
Next best in the 2012 Eskimo Princes Stakes betting are Pampelonne ($7.00), Niagara (8.00) and the Marc Conners trained Didntcostalot ($9.00).
Coming off a spell, Pampelonne is a strong chance as the gelding has an impressive early career record of one win and two second-place finishes.
Didntcostalot is a promising colt who has three wins from five starts and is coming off a good effort last start where he ran second to Nobby Snip in the Listed Fireball Quality.
He has received a favourable barrier five draw and will be ridden by Jeff Penza in the race which has been reduced to fourteen horses following the scratching of Double Ranga.
A promising Peter Snowden trained filly in Altar ($21.oo at bookmaker.com.au) is the Races.com.au upset pick to take third tomorrow after coming into the race in reasonable form.
The 2011 Golden Slipper fifth-place getter finished fourth in the Light Fingers Stakes in February following a spell and backed it up with another solid showing when finishing fourth in the Fireball Quality.
