The Group racing action gets underway for Epsom Handicap Day 2012 in the third at Randwick this afternoon with the $175,000 Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) and here the Races.com.au team has the late mail betting tip for the day’s early three-year-olds showdown.
Due to jump at 1:20pm the Roman Consul Stakes 2012 features a small field of just six hopefuls and it is the red hot favourite #5 Ichihara the Races.com.au have the late mail tip on.
Allan Denham’s classy General Nediym filly from Wyong have dominated the Roman Consul Stakes odds at bookmaker.com.au since markets opened and is now right into $1.70.
While it may be tempting to seek out more value in the markets the odds-on pick has done everything right leading up to this including their blistering last-start win the Listed Heritage Stakes (1100m) a fortnight ago by two and a half lengths.
Carry two kilos less here, have the experience with a Group 2 Magic Night Stakes win at Rosehill from March also on their record and can match it with the boys.
Really don’t like odds-on favourites? Get more bang for your buck by backing Anthony Cummings’ Fastnet Rock colt Your Song, set to appreciate the drop back in class after running eighth in the Golden Rose last time out, in the Roman Consul Stakes Quinella along with Ichihara at bookmaker.com.au.
