While all the attention in Sydney this Saturday will be on the four Group 1 features headlining the Royal Randwick race program, one of the day’s early lead-ups to get you geared up for the big ones will be the 2012 Roman Consul Stakes.
Due to run as Randwick Race 3 at 1:20pm, the $175,000 Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) features just six three-year-olds after the early scratching of Melbourne visitor #4 Royal Rada.
Clear favourite in the Roman Consul Stakes betting markets is the consistent Allan Denham-trained Ichihara who is odds-on at $1.70 after carrying on her good form from last season into her three-year-old spring campaign.
Outside of Ichihara the placings look anyone else’s for the taking with the next best fancied at the bookies being the Anthony Cummings-trained Your Song ($4.20) racing for the first time since their eighth in the Golden Rose last month.

2012 Roman Consul Stakes Trifecta Tip
- Ichihara is the deserved favorite and really will take some beating. Has won four of her six starts to date including the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) during the autumn and most recently the Listed Heritage Stakes (1100m) by an easy two and a half lengths at this track two weeks back.
- Your Song is a nice horse as shown by their back-to-back Sydney wins in the wet during the winter and their second to Cox Plate favourite Pierro in the Run to the Rose. Couldn’t step up to the 1400m when running at outclassed eighth in the Golden Rose but they drop back to 1200m against a much easier field here.
- Jolie Bay is an up-and-coming Fastnet Rock filly from the Hawkes stables, resumed off a four month break to break her maiden status at start number two at Hawkesbury over 1000m on September 13, goes well fresh but needs to step up in both class and distance.
