Nechita Ready to Fire in 2012 Golden Rose – Betting Update

Patinack filly Nechita is a short-priced favourite to win Saturday’s $1 million 2012 Golden Rose (1200m) at Rosehilland keep her unbeaten record in tact.


Nechita is a short-priced favourite to win Saturday's Golden Rose

The Fastnet Rock three-year-old has only had two starts to date but a 3 1/2 length debut victory and a two-length win in the Silver Shadow Stakes have the bookies taking no risks.

Currently offered at $2.20 at, trainer John Thompson has often described Nechita as the most promising horse he has trained and is confident she can perform this weekend.

“She’s got the X-factor,” Thompson said.

“She’s done very well and we’re very happy going into the race.”

But Thompson is still wary that she has to beat some quality colts including the Gai Waterhouse-trained Kabayan who occupies the second line of betting at $4.20.

“It’s always a worry taking on the colts. There’s a couple of nice horses there and it’s still only early in the season,” he said.

Kabayan has had four starts for one win and three runner-up finishes including just being edged out by Queensland colt Sizzling in the Group 1 TJ Smith at the Brisbane winter carnival.

Only two other horses fall under double figures for Saturday’s race and they are Your Song and Albrecht who are both being offered at $9.00.

Your Song finished second to Pierro in the Group 3 Run To The Rose while Albrecht produced an impressive win in the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes.

Other horses running the Golden Rose include Albrecht’s stablemate Epaulette ($12.00), Shamexpress ($13.00), Ninth Legion ($17.00), Ashokan ($41.00), Amorino ($61.00) and long-short outsider Doubtfilly ($101.00).
