Darlington Abbey Tops 2012 Karrakatta Plate Betting

Undefeated filly Darlington Abbey will head into this weekend’s Group 2 $500,000 2012 Karrakatta Plate as favourite after showing plenty of promise so far in 2012.

The Simon Miller trained horse is currently paying $3.80 to win the race that will test the best two-year-old horses in the west over the sprinter’s distance of 1200 metres.

In her three starts to date, Darlington Abbey has produced excellent form and after winning on debut in Pinjarra she has gone on to take top honours in the Magic Millions Perth Classic and the Listed Gimcrack Stakes.

Hot on her tail is another Miller trained filly, Miss Solis, who currently sits at $4.00 in the Karrakatta Plate betting market.

The talented horse has three wins from four starts with her only loss coming when she finished second to Darlington Abbey in the Gimcrack Stakes.

She started the year in terrific fashion when she won the Supremacy Stakes by a length but she faces a tough task on Saturday to overcome her unfavourable number 18 barrier draw.

Whether or not Adelaide filly Alezan Thunder will run on Saturday is still to be decided with the Mark Kavanagh trained horse also named in the final field for Morphetville’s Marsh Breeders Stakes.

If she does run, the $6.50 third favourite has the quality to challenge the front runners after finishing third in the famous Gold Coast Magic Millions event and more recently running second in the Listed Pewsey Vale Stakes.

Behind the three favourites there is a large gap in the betting market with Looking Ahead ($13.00), Luke’s Luck ($14.00), and Detection ($14.00) the next best hopefuls.

Luke’s Luck ran second to Miss Solis in the Supremacy Stakes while Looking Ahead is coming off first and second-place finishes in two-year-old plate races at Ascot.

At $17.00, the Darren McAuliffe trained El Rijes provides some value after coming off a win in the Listed Perth Stakes on March 17.
