2012 King’s Stand Stakes Odds & Betting Led by Ortensia

Aussie mare Ortensia continues to sit at the top of the markets for the King’s Stand Stakes 2012, the classic sprint showdown to run at Royal Ascot at five past midnight Eastern Standard Time (EST) tomorrow morning.


Al Quoz Sprint winner Ortensia is favourite to take out tonight's 2012 King's Stand Stakes

It is going to be a late night for the Australian racing fans that stay up to watch Paul Messara’s flying Testa Rossa six-year-old run in the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes (1000m), and a tense wait for those that have backed her to win.

Having already collected over $2.1 million in prize money over her 30 start career to date 11 time winner Ortensia made her overseas last time out when she outclassed a rank field in the Group 1 Al Quoz Sprint (1000m) at Meydan on Dubai World Cup Night on March 31.

“The race at Meydan was the best run of her career. She is going into this as well as she was into Dubai,” Messara said

The King’s Stand Stakes will be her first look at the hilly Royal Ascot course but one thing that will be familiar for her is jockey Craig Williams, aboard for her two last start victories in the Al Quoz and Winterbottom Stakes back in Perth.

The bookies and punters are getting right behind Ortensia too with our preferred betting agency bookmaker.com.au installing her as the $5 favourite in their King’s Stand Stakes odds.

Australian-trained horses have an outstanding recent record in the King’s Stand with four having achieved the feat in the past decade with Choisir (2003), Takeover Target (2006), Miss Andretti (2007) and Scenic Blast (2009).

Following Ortensia in the King’s Stand Stakes betting markets are then three other single-figure chances with:

  • #2 Bated Breath ($6) – Local hopefuls drawn well in barrier eight but could bypass the race if the track is too soft for their trainer’s liking, also a chance of racing against Black Caviar in the Diamond Jubilee on Saturday, resumed on May 26 to win the Group 2 Temple Stakes (1005m) at Haydock Park in good style
  • #19 Wizz Kid ($6) – Wide barrier 15 draw to overcome, will be ridden by former Melbourne Cup winning jockey Gerald Mosse, is the pick if the track is really rain-affected, smart French filly not to be discounted
  • #12 Sole Power ($9) – Would be shorter in the market were it not for that horror barrier 22 draw, Edward Lynam’s Kyllachy gelding ran a good second to Bated Breath last time out, their third second place finish on the trot with their other big effort being their Al Quoz second to Ortensia, needs to improve about a length but is a genuine threat

Other longer-priced hopefuls that could prove excellent value include Honk Kong galloper Little Bridge ($14) out for their third win on the trot, Robert Cowell’s veteran Newmarket sprinter Prohibit ($14), and another Hong Kong hopeful with The Chairman’s Sprint Prize winner Joy And Fun ($16) who took out the 2010 Al Quoz Sprint.
