Colin Stephen Quality 2012 Betting Tips

A field full of The Metropolitan hopefuls will face off in the sixth at Rosehill this Saturday in the 2012 Colin Stephen Quality Handicap, but can the Gai Waterhouse-trained shortie take home the bikkies?

Strawberry Boy are sticking with odds-on favourite Strawberry Boy to win the 2012 Colin Stephen Quality

Waterhouse is gearing up for her most successful Sydney Spring Racing Carnival day in a number of years with six favourites ready to run including three odds-on favourites.

One of those odds-on favourites is Strawberry Boy who currently pays $1.70 through to win the $125,000 Group 3 Colin Stephen Quality (2400m).

An $11 fancy for the $400,000 Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Royal Randwick Saturday week, Strawberry Boy vies for their third win from four starts this spring, the classy Redoute’s Choice four-year-old last seen running a close third to fellow The Metrop-bound Stout Hearted in the Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill two weeks ago.

So can Strawberry Boy get the job done for the punters on Saturday and does the team at have them rated special to win?

Or are we tipping one of their longer-priced hopefuls such as the fellow Waterhouse-trained Julienas ($4) coming off a win in the Wyong Gold Cup or Chris Waller’s Wyong Cup fourth placed Kelinni to score an upset Colin Stephen Quality result?

2012 Colin Stephen Quality Trifecta Tip

  • #6 Strawberry Boy ($1.70) from #5 Kelinni ($4) and #2 Julienas ($4)

Strawberry Boy is the rank horse here and their 66.67% Win Rate and 83.33% place rate speak for themselves. Has a Metrop start on the line and Waterhouse wouldn’t be running them here if she wasn’t confident it was the right race. Sure they’re a little short for our liking but third-up here looks ideal.

Kelinni from the Chris Waller stables meanwhile has a chance to get the better of their last-start conqueror Julienas having run a close fourth in the Wyong Gold Cup last time out. Should appreciate getting up to the mile and a half as a winner over 2500m at Randwick. Liked their successive August wins over 2200m at Warwick Farm – this import keeps improving.

Julienas must also be included in all exotics, the Cape Cross five-year-old starting to come into their own as they go up in distance and get used to the way the Australians do it.

Roughie We Like

  • #4 Praecido ($21)

Has improvement in them from their most recent run – fourth in the Kingston Town – and represents juicy value in these markets. They have work to do but with a bit of luck the Parramatta Cup winner at this track could credibly finish inside the top three.
