Isopach Heads Rough Habit Plate 2012 Betting

John Thompson-trained gelding Isopach holds slight favouritism ahead of tomorrow’s Group 3 2012 Rough Habit Plate (2000m) at Brisbane’s Doomben Racecourse.

Currently paying $3.50 at, the promising gelding is yet to record a win in 2012 but signalled plenty of potential in a Sydney campaign that included some solid runs at Group level.

The son of Magic Albert ran third to Polish Knight in the Group 2 Tulloch Stakes on April 7 and backed it up last start with a fourth-place effort against a quality Frank Packer Plate field.

He holds a slight lead in the betting market ahead of talented New Zealand gelding Malandrino who is paying $3.70 to win his first race on Australian soil.

But the Murray Baker-trained product may not yet line up on Saturday, with a Hong Kong sales deal still in negotiations and if it goes through today then the talented up-and-comer will be withdrawn from the race.

If the son of Darci Brahma does run, he will be ridden by talented jockey James McDonald who believes he is the horse to beat after riding him to victory in his last two starts including the Group 3 Manawatu Classic.

“He’s outstanding…I’ve got that high opinion of the horse, I just think he’ll win on Saturday,” McDonald said.

Next back in the Rough Habit Plate betting market is promising local gelding Trump who is paying $5.00 to take top honours on Saturday.

The Robert Heathcote-trained product heads into the race in good form after winning the Group 3 Gunsynd Classic in tough conditions last start.

There is a gap in the betting behind the three leaders with Peter Moody-trained Brambles the next best at $7.50 after running third in the Gunsynd Classic.

There is a strong New Zealand showing in the field with Poste Restante ($9.00) and Nashville ($15.00) also set to line up.
