Challenge Stakes 2012 Tips & Odds Update

One of the key support races on the Rosehill Guineas Day program for this Saturday will be the 2012 Challenge Stakes, the team’s exclusive tips and race preview for which can be found below.

Rain Affair

Rain Affair is the pick to win the 2012 Challenge Stakes

Set to run as Rosehill Race 4 at 2:10pm (NSW time), the $175,000 Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1100m) drew just seven runners this year, but don’t be fooled by the field size.

In the mix is an odds-on favourite in Rain Affair ($1.85, another spruik sprinter Bel Sprinter ($3.20 and last year’s Golden Slipper third placed Elite Falls ($8

So will Joe Pride’s four-time stakes winner Rain Affair bounce back from their Newmarket sixth and salute for the punters?

Or will there be an upset Challenge Stakes result on Saturday with one of the longer-priced hopefuls getting the better of them in this supercharged sprint showdown.

The expert team of tipsters has done the Challenge Stakes form and studied the field, our insider tips found below so you can back a winner at this Saturday!

Rosehill Race 4 Betting – 2012 Challenge Stakes Tips Tip to Win

This boom galloper has eased out slightly from $1.75 to $1.85 and this suits us as really Rain Affair does look hard to beat in this field.

They are four from five and the distance, unbeaten in three at the track and boast a 92% Win/Place rate.

Enough said?

Ignore the Newmarket, that was their first Group 1 and they were only beaten two and a half after getting caught from the inside alley in a big 22-horse field.

Face just six on Saturday, Rosehill is the preferred track and they will be back to their best.

Best Place Bets

  • #6 Elite Falls ($8) and #3 Bel Sprinter ($3.20) – Bet now at

Hard to go past the top three in this one, just swap the second to in order of the odds.

Bel Sprinter has the record and the ability but Elite Falls really was good in the Oakleigh.

Money coming for Bel Sprinter whose shortened from $3.40 to $3.20, but they haven’t seen Rosehill.

Elite Falls has and she is set for a good season to atone for the spring.

Roughie To Try

David Payne says they are back to peak fitness so fingers crossed they bring some competition. Oakleigh Plate 11th was better than it looks, won’t win but if they’ve come on from their Expressway Stakes fourth can place at good odds.
