Chelmsford Stakes Odds 2012 – Secret Admirer Tops Markets

Reigning Epsom Handicap champion Secret Admirer is well-supported to win her second-up spring run with the Grahame Begg-trained mare the early market mover in the 2012 Chelmsford Stakes odds for this weekend.

Secret Admirer

Secret Admirer is clear favourite for the 2012 Chelmsford Stakes in Sydney on Saturday

Running as Warwick Farm Race 5 on Saturday the $175,000 Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) field features nine promising spring hopefuls with Secret Admirer the top fancy at a quote of $2.80 in the bookmaker.com.au markets.

Coming off a first-up second to Pinwheel in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at the same track on August 25, Begg may be worried Secret Admirer will race a little dour over the mile second-up, but the bookies are taking no chances and the punters won’t be deterred.

Drawn in gate six with Kiwi hoop James McDonald to ride her for the first time, the five-year-old daughter of Dubawi has an ambitious spring carnival ahead with all the majors being considered including the 2012 Cox Plate and Caulfield Cup 2012 in Melbourne next month.

After Secret Admirer the bookies are having a hard time separating the chances of the rest of the Chelmsford Stakes field with four other single-figure chances in:

  • #4 Lamasery ($5.50) – Local Commands six-year-old ran fourth in the Warwick Stakes first-up, nice form in Melbourne last spring including a Melbourne Cup Day win over 1800m, set for a big season with the Sydney features to be followed by a possible 2012 Caulfield Cup campaign
  • #5 Somepin Anypin ($6.50) – Another local galloper coming off an eye-catching first-up effort having run third to Moment Of Change in the Listed Show County Quality (1200m) at this track on August 25
  • #8 Lights Of Heaven ($7) – Peter Moody-trained Group 1 winner will improve as she gets up in distance, this is still too short for her but she’s a class mare that can be forgiven from her first-up 11th in the Warwick Stakes
  • #1 Danleigh ($7.50) – Veteran nine-year-old from Chris Waller’s stables, multiple Group 1 hero showed they still had plenty left in their old legs with a great third in the Warwick Stakes, can they produce again?

That isn’t the end of the chances however with the Hawkes-trained four-year-old Polish Knight who ran second in the Australian Derby during the autumn, at $10 and David Payne’s Thorn Park gelding Centennial Park at $12 who has the fitness edge running third-up.

Graeme Boyd’s resuming Kiwi galloper Ginga Dude ($18) who had a great winter in Queensland, and then $51 roughie Maules Creek then round out the markets.
