The BMW 2012 Betting Update – Americain Lengthens

After drawing the outside barrier (10) for the 2012 BMW, race-favourite Americain has lengthened in the betting after opening at $1.90 earlier this week.


Americain has lengthened in the betting after some good weather and a wide barrier draw

The star seven-year-old import has moved to $2.10 at preferred bookmaker ahead of Australian Cup winner Manighar ($4.20).

With Americain widely regarded as a better soft track runner, some excellent weather in Sydney is another reason punters may have shied away from the 2010 Melbourne Cup winner.

The track is currently rated a Good 3 and it has forced trainer David Hayes to equip the star runner with concussion plates but that should not cause him any trouble.

Americain won wearing concussion plates in last year’s Group 2 Zipping Classic as well as the Group 2 Drake International at Moonee Valley.

Current market mover Southern Speed has been backed in from $10.00 to $9.00 despite running fifth to Manighar in the Ranvet Stakes two weeks ago.

Last year’s Caulfield Cup winner has produced some good results this year, including an Australian Cup runner-up, but she is still chasing a Group victory in 2012.

Apart from the Australian Cup second-place finish, the Southern Image mare won the Listed John Dillion Stakes first up and then ran second to Black Caviar in the CF Orr Stakes.

The other local hope Niwot has also received some support from the punters, having been backed in from $18.00 to $17.00.

Trained by John Hawkes and sons Michael and Wayne, the seven-year-old has shown promise this year with consecutive fifths in the Futurity and Blamey Stakes before running fourth to Manighar in the Ranvet Stakes.

Outside of the local hopes and Americain, there has been little movement in the betting with New Zealand horses Precedence ($13.00), Scarlett Lady ($15.00) and Efficient ($21.00) the other likely contenders.

The BMW market is now open at, so with the race only two days away, get in quick to place your bets.

Home of the $300 bonus bet, the preferred bookie is offering the best value prices on all the Rosehill action this weekend.
