Allan Denham’s Group 2 winning filly Ichihara has opened the pronounced favourite in the Roman Consul Stakes 2012 odds for this Saturday’s Epsom Handicap Day showdown.
Running as Royal Randwick Race 3 at 1:20pm the $175,000 Group 2 Vili’s Pies Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) originally drew a final field of seven three-year-olds but is now down to just six competitors following the early scratching of #4 Royal Rada.
Odds-on favourite in the latest Roman Consul Stakes betting markets at bookmaker.com.au is Ichihara who pays $1.70 to win her second Group 2 title.
The daughter of General Nediym won her opening three career starts in Sydney back in March including the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill.
Her first defeat came at Royal Randwick next start when third in the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m), Ichihara then sent out for a spell.
She resumed as a three-year-old at Warwick Farm on August 25 running fourth in the Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) before recording another black type last time out when the emphatic two and a half length winner of the Listed Heritage Stakes (1100m) at Randwick on September 22.
Following Ichihara in the Roman Consul Stakes odds at bookmaker.com.au are then three other horses under $10 with:
- #1 Your Song ($3.80) – Anthony Cummings-trained Fastnet Rock colt out to bounce back after their eighth in the Golden Rose, should like getting back to the 1200m

- #7 Jolie Bay ($9) – Hawkes-trained daughter of Fastnet Rock broke their maiden first-up at Hawkesbury on September 13, notable class rise here but that’s the challenge
