Will No Looking Back Score Upset 2012 Golden Slipper Result?

She is the last of the single-figure chances in the Golden Slipper 2012 odds for this Saturday and one of top fancies for Gai Waterhouse to secure a fourth Slipper victory, so what chance does No Looking Back really have on the weekend?

No Looking Back and Driefontein

No Looking Back (outside) is one of five Gai Waterhouse-trained runners in the 2012 Golden Slipper

One of the big winners in the Golden Slipper barrier draw coming up with gate three, Redoute’s Choice filly No Looking Back is one of just four horses under $10 in the bookmaker.com.au markets for the world’s richest two-year-olds’ race.

Paying $9 to take out the $3.5 million Group 1 AAMI Golden Slipper (1200m), No Looking Back hasn’t been seen since her three lengths away third behind $2.50 Slipper favourite Samaready in the Blue Diamond Stakes.

So is she fit enough for this big test? Can she handle the Rosehill course as she sees it for the first time? And is No Looking Back good value to back?

Below the Races.com.au team take a look at why No Looking Back can and cannot win Waterhouse a fourth Golden Slipper this Easter Saturday so you work out whether to back her in the Golden Slipper odds at bookmaker.com.au.

Why No Looking Back Can Win the 2012 Golden Slipper

  • Waterhouse has won three Slippers before so she knows how to train them, and she is keener than ever for her next with Sebring the last back in 2008
  • Is ridden by a former Golden Slipper winning jockey in Craig Williams (Miss Finland, 2006)
  • Has drawn to perfection in barrier three, only two on her inside and she should get a good position early before bringing the competition late
  • Barrier 3 has produced the second most Golden Slipper winners (after gate one) in history with six, the most recent being Catbird (1999)
  • Fillies have a good record in the race with 23 wins, most recently with Crystal Lily (2010)
  • On paper in the Blue Diamond she was beaten three lengths by Samaready, but she came from near last to run second and if she improves she is a genuine danger

Why No Looking Back Won’t Be the Golden Slipper 2012 Winner

  • There is talent a plenty in this field with the favourite Samaready deservingly short in the markets
  • Might not be the right Waterhouse-trained horse with the in-form Pierro ($6 bookmaker.com.au) the shortest of the stablemates
  • Hasn’t raced since February 25, is she fit enough for this?
  • Needs to improve from her second to Samaready in the Blue Diamond
  • Has the right form to run a good second or third and could be a better Place or Exotic inclusions bet at bookmaker.com.au
