Metropolitan 2012 Betting Update – Glencadam Gold Shortens

Punters are expecting the good form of Glencadam Gold to continue this morning with the Gai Waterhouse-trained import shortening in the 2012 Metropolitan market.


Lamasery (pictured) will have to beat the heavily backed Glencadam Gold to win the Metropolitan today

The four-year-old was offered at as much as $4.00 at earlier this week but is now in to $3.40 for what is his first Group 1 test.

The favouritism is justified on his form so far, with his most recent win a dominant start-to-finish leading performance in the Group 3 Newcastle Cup (2300m).

Second favourite is Lamasery who has drifted from $4.00 to $4.40 but is also heading into the race in good form.

The David Vandyke-trained gelding ran third in this event last year and is coming off a strong win in the Group 2 Hill Stakes.

Both Kelinni and Stout Hearted from the Waller stable occupy the next line of betting at $7.50 while fellow Waller-trained import Permit has drifted from $8.00 to $9.00.

But all three must be considered winning chances with Kelinni backing up from a win in the Colin Stephen Quality and Stout Hearted showing good form throughout the early spring.

Permit is yet to show his best but only does when he gets up in distance and is a dual stakes winner when getting out to 2400m or further.

It is a big, even Metropolitan field with Australian Derby runner-up Polish Knight at $19.00 a number of many chances at double-figure odds.

Also offering value is Ron Quinton-trained mare Crafty Irna ($21.00), last year’s winner The Verminator ($26.00), last-start winner Buxted ($26.00).
