Chipping Norton Stakes 2013 Odds Update – Havana Rey Firms

Betting odds for this Saturday’s 2013 Chipping Norton Stakes at Warwick Farm have remained steady over the past 24 hours aside from one notable market mover, the Bjorn Baker-trained local Havana Rey.

Running as Race 6 at 4:20pm (AEST) the $350,000 Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) is shaping up as an exciting Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival feature with betting led by the reigning champ Shoot Out ($5) who resumes racing here.

Winner of the Group 1 George Ryder over the mile in Sydney last time in the six-year-old is one of six chances for Chris Waller and is well fancied to secure their fifth elite level victory here.

Following Shoot Out in the Chipping Norton Stakes odds is then Peter Moody’s autumn star from last year Manighar ($5.50) and Kiwi mare Silent Achiever who has drifted out slightly from $6.50 to $7.50.

The only horse to firm in their price to become this weekend’s Chipping Norton Stakes winner meanwhile is Havana Rey backed in from $17 to $15 at

Drawn ideally midfield in barrier seven with Peter Robl to ride the King Cugat four-year-old has an outstanding record at this track and distance having won four of their five starts over the Warwick Farm mile.

It is this record at ‘The Farm’ along with their high level of fitness that has boosted Baker’s confidence a little heading into the race which  will be a notable step up in class for the talented miler as they have never contested a black type race in their 19 start career to date.

“You’re never confident going into a big race like this but I think he’s going to be at the peak of his powers and he comes into the race in great form, he’s very fit and he goes well at Warwick Farm,” Baker said.

Havana Rey has won their past two races on the trot both over the 1600m here including a Benchmark 95 on February 23 in a Heavy (10) track when carrying 58.5kg to defeat 54kg lightweight Shamardani by two and a half lengths.

While their price is firming Havana Rey certainly faces a tough assignment with half this year’s Chipping Norton Stakes field made up of Group 1 winners.

“Very much so. But you’ve got to be in it to win it,” Baker said.

“It’s a big ask but his last win, it threw him into open company. He’s in with the big boys now so we’re going right in the deep end.”

Think the money trail on Havana Rey is worth following and they have what it takes for an upset? Or fancy them for value in an Each Way bet or exotic selection?
