The Group 2 2013 Todman Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on Saturday is set to be an open affair, at least according to the betting market.
Seven of the 10 runners in the traditional Golden Slipper lead-up for colts and geldings are under double figures with Charlie Boy heading the market at $3.50.
The Gerald Ryan-trained colt has had plenty of hype in the lead-up to the Slipper and was third in the Silver Slipper last week.
Closely behind him in betting is Queensland gelding Whiskey Allround ($5) who was a fighting second behind Sweet Idea in the Silver Slipper.
The Tony Gollan-trained youngster is not yet entered for the Golden Slipper but a strong performance on Saturday is likely to see connections pay the $150,000 late entry fee.
Darley always have a large team of juveniles and they have one Todman runner, with Sidestep ebing offered at $6.50.
The Exceed and Excel colt is coming off a Black Opal Stakes second after finishing third in the Merson Cooper Stakes on debut in November.
The Black Opal Stakes winner was Criterion ($7.50) who booked his place in the Slipper field when sprinting down the outside in the Canberra two-year-old feature last Sunday week.
Never Can Tell ($8) will be out to bounce back from a disappointing 12th in the Silver Slipper after winning the Canonbury Stakes in his previous start.
Also under double figures are Jason Coyle’s Lonhro Plate runner-up Va Pensiero ($9) and Blue Diamond Stakes runner-up Fast ‘N’ Rocking ($9.50).
Just outside of double figures is Lonhro Plate fourth Windjammer ($11) who is ahead of Paul Messara’s colt Havana ($16) and long-shot outsider Rightoncue ($101) who was second in Goulburn at his last start.
