San Domenico Stakes 2012 Tips & Betting Selections

On Saturday a diminutive but intriguing nine horse field of three-year-olds will face off in the 2012 San Domenico Stakes at Rosehill, the team’s exclusive tips for which are detailed below.

All Too Hard

All Too Hard is the tip to win the 2012 San Domenico Stakes

Due to jump at 2:00pm as Rosehill Race 3 the $125,000 Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) features an odds-on favourite in All Too Hard.

The boom Nathan Tinkler-owned half-brother of Black Caviar pays $1.75 in the San Domenico Stakes odds at to win their fourth race from five starts to date.

All Too Hard won three straight stakes races before their last start second to Golden Slipper winner Pierro in the Group 1 Inglis Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) last start on April 14.

They may have gotten by on raw ability as a juvenile but their trainers Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes are all confident the horse has matured and will come to the races a bigger, stronger galloper which they will need to be as they carry the 59kg topweight on Saturday.

So are we sticking with the favourite to win the San Domenico Stakes? Or does have one of their longer-priced rivals such as Snitzerland ($2.80) or Driefontein ($5.50) rated special to score an upset win?

To Win

#1 All Too Hard ($1.75)

Really is all too hard to go past here. They would be undefeated had they not encountered a superstar at the end of a testing first campaign. Have the breeding, class, ability, record…..need we go on? Never finished worse than second, has winning form up to 1400m so the 1100m first-up, which they did at Flemington on debut, should be a breeze. Face some classy fillies who they give a bit of weight to and that is the only doubt, the weight. But really they are a bigger horse after their break and they also have winning form at the track beating similar to this.

To Place

#2 Snitzerland ($2.80)

Has the ability to give the favourite a genuine run for his money. This is a smart filly right here as displayed by her close second to Pierro (who beat All Too Hard by nearly two lengths) in the Golden Slipper last time out. She goes excellent first-up and the distance should suit, good weight and this is a small field so the outside gate shouldn’t faze.

#2 Driefontein ($5.50)

This the bookies have these top three spot on but wouldn’t be all that surprised to see Gai Waterhouse’s Golden Slipper failure sneak into second. Won her opening four career starts, including the Magic Millions 2YO Classic on protest, but could only finish sixth in the Slipper. Came into a Slow track last start on April 21 at Randwick when second in a low key stakes race, will love the 1100m first-up and is tipped for a big prep.
