Betting Close in Darby Munro Stakes 2012

The betting market is tight for the 2012 Darby Munro Stakes (1200m) which will be contested by a quality field of 15 horses over 1200 metres on Saturday.

Gai Waterhouse trained filly Hallowell Belle is the $4.00 favourite to take out the Listed $100,000 event but will have to deal with the widest barrier draw in the field (15) which throws the race wide open and another five horses are currently paying under $10.00.

African Pulse

African Pulse is second favourite to win the 2012 Darby Munro Stakes

Hallowell Belle earned her favourite tag by producing consecutive third-place efforts in the Light Fingers Stakes and the Surround Stakes but it is yet to be seen whether she is a genuine winning horse having recorded nine places but just one victory from 11 starts.

After finishing mid-field in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate and Newmarket Handicap, African Pulse will appreciate the drop back in class and is currently second favourite at $6.50.

He sits just ahead of a host of other horses including the Peter Snowden trained pair Anise ($7.00) and Aerobatics ($7.50).

Anise is returning from a spell but showed promise last Spring with a worst finish of fifth from five outings during the season.

Exceed And Excel filly Aerobatics has had three starts this year and has produced some results that suggest bigger things are to come.

She began her 2012 campaign with a win and a second-place finish in lower level races at Rosehill before running third in the Listed Eskimo Prince Stakes at Randwick on March 17.

Sacred Pins is next best in the betting at $9.00 and it will be interesting to see whether the New Zealand gelding can continue his unbeaten run when faced with a step up in class.

He has recorded victory in his three starts to date but Saturday’s Listed event will be easily the hardest race of the promising horse’s career.

Fellow New Zealand gelding Famous Seamus is also undefeated and will provide plenty of value for the punters at $15.00 when he returns from a spell this Saturday.

Like Sacred Pins, Famous Seamus will be contesting his first Listed level event after proving impressive at lesser venues late last year.

Other horses set to run in the Darby Munro Stakes include last-start winner Ever The Same ($9.50) and 2011 Golden Slipper runner Altar ($12.00).
