Kontiki Park Leads 2012 Cameron Handicap Odds

Premier Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse is looking to have a stranglehold over today’s Newcastle race meeting saddling up the favourites in both of the black type features including Kontiki Park who has opened top of the Cameron Handicap 2012 odds.

Western Symbol

Western Symbol is third favourite to win the 2012 Cameron Handicap this afternoon

Earlier in the day all attention will be on Spring Champion Stakes bound Proisir who is odds-on to win the $175,000 Group 3 Spring Stakes (1600m).

Then in the next event Waterhouse will be dually represented in Newcastle Race 7 – the $175,000 Group 3 Patinack Farm Cameron Handicap (1500m) with her 2012 Epsom Handicap hopeful Kontiki Park the current $3.90 favourite to win through bookmaker.com.au.

Drawn in barrier six of 10 with Nash Rawiller engaged for the ride, Thorn Park seven-year-old Kontiki Park comes off two good runs this time in with a first-up victory at Rosehill over 1400m followed by their close second behind Tagus in the Group 3 Tramway Handicap (1400m) at Warwick Farm on September 8.

Kontiki Park’s stablemate Western Symbol is also lining up in today’s Cameron Handicap, and they are one of the early market movers at bookmaker.com.au firming into $4.80.

The High Chaparral six-year-old hasn’t raced since May 20 but they were in flying form during the autumn posting two black-type wins over 2000m in Sydney and Waterhouse isn’t writing them off today either.

“I’m over the moon with him,” Waterhouse said.

“He runs very well first-up.

“I’m leaning slightly towards Kontiki Park but I think Western Symbol has certainly come back with vengeance, people will have a lot of fun backing him over the next few weeks.”

Sandwiched between Waterhouse’s duo in the Cameron Handicap betting markets is then $4.40 second elect Lightinthenite who has come up trumps with gate three, ace Kiwi hoop James McDonald to ride.

John O’Shea’s Galileo gelding races first-up following a four month break before which they rand a good third to last year’s Cameron Handicap winner Raspberries in the Scone Cup.

The other single figure chances in the clash, due to jump at 4:05pm, are then the John Thompson-trained Tramway Handicap winner Tagus ($7.50) and 59kg topweight Monton ($8) out to improve on their Tramway eighth.

Other longer priced hopefuls worth a look for exotics also include Bede Murray’s Group 1 placed four-year-old Darci Be Good ($10) on the rails with Corey Brown booked for the ride, and $13 shot Rolling Pin.

Meanwhile Peter Snowden will be vying for back-to-back Cameron Handicap wins this year with Canny Lad seven-year-old Offenders who is a $26 roughie in the markets.

“My son, Paul, has been singing Offenders’ praises for a while,” Snowden said.

“He has been working better than he has ever worked in Melbourne so I thought the Cameron Handicap was a good opportunity to bring him up here.

“It’s the right track, right distance for him, and if he puts his best foot forward, he won’t be too far away.”
