Betting Tight in 2012 Sebring Stakes

The Group 3 2012 Sebring Stakes stands as a key support act on an exciting nine-race Rosehill card this Saturday that includes the glamour two-year-old race, the Golden Slipper.

Betting is close at the top end of the market with four-year-old gelding Riva De Lago ($4.00) and the returning Pinwheel ($4.20) currently jostling for favouritisim.

Riva De Lago was solid when returning from a spell two weeks ago, finishing fourth in the Listed Maurice McCarten Stakes at Rosehill.

Peter Snowden-trained Pinwheel is returning from a spell and will be out to regain the form that saw him win the Group 3 WJ Healy Stakes and the Group 2 Warwick Stakes last year.

The 1100 metre sprint stands as one of the more open races on the bumper Rosehill line up, with a further three horses all paying under $10.00.

New Zealand gelding Tiger Tees ($7.00) faces a step up in class on Saturday in his first Group race but is probably the best performed horse in the field with six wins from nine starts.

Fellow New Zealand horse Master Of Design ($9.00) has been race-hardened after running in some high quality Group 1 races this year.

The six-year-old will appreciate a drop back in class after finishing ninth in the Oakleigh Plate and running 20th in the Newmarket Handicap on March 10.

Equal with Master Of Design at $9.00 in the betting market is Mic Mac who will be racing for the first time since October 2010.

The Paul Messara-trained gelding is a winner of seven races from 18 starts and has performed solidly in two lead-up barrier trials.

Providing some value at $26.00 is Winter King who will appreciate a lesser quality field after going out far too hard against Rain Affair in the Challenge Stakes last weekend before eventually finishing last.

The Sebring Stakes will run as the second race at Rosehill this Saturday and is set to jump at 12:25pm (AEST).

All the markets are now open at for the entire day of Rosehill racing action.
