Griffon Tops Ascot Handicap Odds 2012 – Betting Preview

Robert Heathcote’s in-form local galloper Griffon has opened at the top of the betting markets for the 2012 Ascot Handicap at Eagle Farm this weekend, the six-year-old out for their second win from three starts this time in.


Griffon has opened favourite to win the 2012 Ascot Handicap at Brisbane this Saturday

The Flying Spur six-year-old, formerly prepared in Sydney by the maestro Bart Cummings, Griffon joined Heathcote’s Brisbane stables during the summer last year and has won two of their five starts for Queensland’s number one trainer.

This time in they enjoyed an excellent first-up win beating home Royal Bender by one and a half lengths in the Listed Lightning Handicap (1000m) at Eagle Farm on June 9.

They were last seen running a credible third to River Lad in the Group 3 WJ Healy Stakes (1200m) a fortnight ago.

Saturday sees them return to the 1200m at Eagle Farm for the $80,000 Listed PMP Ascot Handicap (1200m), running as Race 7 at 3:46pm.

Set to jump from barrier eight of 10 following the early scratching of #10 Heart To Fear with Paul Hammersley, aboard for their Lightning Handicap victory, to ride Griffon is installed as the $3.50 favourite in the Ascot Handicap odds at

In a tight Ascot Handicap betting market four of their rivals are also under $10 with:

  • #2 Adnocon ($4.20) – Drawn on the rails with Damian Brown in the saddle Gerald Ryan’s classy Sydney sprinter comes off a close third in the Eye Liner Stakes at Ipswich over 1350m, have just their fifth start at the track and while the distance is a little short of their preferred they run well fresh – Missed the Glasshouse but can Win This
  • #4 Audacious Spirit ($5.50) – Gillian Heinrich-trained Bel Esprit four-year-old has the breeding and recent good form to challenge, 3.5 length winner over this distance at Doomben three back, ran a good third in the Lightning when dropping back to the 1000m and come off a sixth in the WJ Healy – Can Improve on Last Start and Go Close Here
  • #5 Havatryst ($8) – Barry Baldwin’s local gelding has been outclassed in their two runs this time in, have won two of their six starts at the track and from 10 goes at the distance boast six wins, if they can return to form this is the race to do it in especially from the nice gate four draw – Ready to Return To Form Add into Exotics
  • #6 The Sixties ($8) – Another local hope has run sixth in both their starts this prep including in the Eye Liner Stakes, 1200m will suit better, have an awesome place rate at this track and distance with three wins and four minor placings from 11 starts – Can’t Ignore Excellent Track & Distance Record

Other gallopers at slightly longer odds that have claims for an upset Ascot Handicap result include Danny Williams’ Goulburn galloper How Much My Love ($12) fresh from a trip up to Rockhampton, and Norm Hilton’s 59kg topweight Bold Glance ($13).
