Malandrino Scratched from 2012 Rough Habit Plate – Betting Update

Highly promising New Zealand gelding Malandrino has been scratched from tomorrow’s 2012 Rough Habit Plate after a Hong Kong sales deal was confirmed this morning.

Rated as one of the favourites to take out tomorrow’s $125,000 Group 3 three-year-old event, negotiations started to buy the Manawatu Classic winner last Friday.

Trainer Murray Baker withdrew Malandrino from the Rough Habit Plate this morning and confirmed the son of Darci Brahma would leave his stables.

“He’s been sold,” Baker confirmed.

“The deal was done yesterday and was all settled today.”

Baker said the horse could be a “superstar” in Hong and that he will develop into a quality staying prospect.

The Malandrino scratching has seen John Thompson-trained gelding shorten to $3.10 favourite while Gunsynd Classic winner Trump is now second favourite at $4.40.

Peter Moody-trained Brambles is at $6.00 while Nashville is the race market mover and following the scratching of Malandrino has moved in from $15.00 to $6.00.

The promising New Zealand gelding is, like Malandrino, a son of Darci Brahma and will be having his first race on Australian soil.

Trained by Adrian Bull, the three-year-old has shown plenty of promise in his young career, winning three times from six starts and placing on two other occasions.

He is joined in the Rough Habit Plate field by fellow Adrian Bull-trained Urunga ($15.00) who is coming off a last-start win at Hastings on April 21.

The Rough Habit Plate will feature 15 three-year-old horses all who have a chance to impress ahead of the Group 1 Queensland Derby which will take place at Eagle Farm on June 9.

Saturday’s day of action kicks off the Brisbane Winter Carnival with the highlight being the Group 1 BTC Cup.
