2013 Golden Slipper Day Best Bets

This Saturday Rosehill Gardens Racecourse will host one of the year’s most crucial race meetings – Golden Slipper Day 2013– and with five big Group 1 features including the iconic Golden Slipper for two-year-olds on the card there’s a huge program to bet on and enjoy.


Sangster to win the 2013 The BMW is our roughie pick of Golden Slipper Day.

To give our readers a little autumn carnival boost and loot the bookies’ bank below we have our Best Golden Slipper Day Bets – who you should jump on and where we think the bookies have got it wrong!

In The Big One – Race 7

#11 Overreach ($2.60)

Whatever you think of two-year-old races there’s no denying the hype on the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) – the richest of its kind in the world. And while the rain has thrown a bit of a spanner in the works with the clear fancy easing right out to $2.60 now, it is still hard to see Gai Waterhouse’s flying filly Overreach get beaten. She’s got the ideal lead-up form with two easy Sydney wins, the last over this track and distance, and she will get a gun run from gate one with Tommy Berry aboard. Lots to like, she’s adaptable and got speed. She just needs to handle the ground and reproduce her recent efforts and she’s got this in the bag.

Best Place Bet – Race 8

#9 Solzhenitsyn ($13)

One of five Group 1’s on the card the $400,000 Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) is definitely spruik colt Pierro’s for the taking, the young champ odds-on at $1.60. But to add value to your exotics in this weight-for-age classic we like the look of double-figure chance Solzhenitsyn from Brisbane who is a tough galloper with previous Group 1 winning experience. Third to Pierro in the Canterbury last start having fought hard from a bad position and the distance is ideal for this mile specialist.

Better Than Bank Interest – Race 6

#1 More Joyous ($1.50)

The odds on Gai Waterhouse’s glamour mare More Joyous to win the $400,000 Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1500m) continue to ease with the money coming hard and fast for Chris Waller’s recognised mudlark Red Tracer who is right into $6.50 now. But $1.50 is still odds-on and that’s for a reason with the dual defending champ the class horse here, More Joyous having won eight previous Group 1’s including the past two editions of this race with improvement to come off her good first-up second to Pierro in the Canterbury.

Best Roughie Of The Day – Race 5

#8 Sangster ($15)

The second biggest race of the meeting, the $2.25 million Group 1 The BMW (2400m) is shaping up as a cracker this year with three-year-old Fiveandahalfstar ($3.20) favourite to break their string of second placings with a Group 1 win against the older stayers. We are tipping an upset in the staying showdown however and have Kiwi raider Sangster, winner of the Auckland Cup two back, rated special to win. They will have big improvement after their Ranvet seventh which saw them come from 3200m to 2000m, will relish the mile and a half and thrive if the track stays Heavy.

In A Tight Market – Race 3

#3 Philippi $4.80

Two three-year-olds battle for favourtism in the markets for the $175,000 Group 2 Tulloch Stakes (2000m) with the Peter Snowden-trained Proverb the $4 favourite over Philippi at $4.80. The two are drawn beside each other in gates three and four respectively and the bookies are having a hard time separating the duo. While Proverb drops back from a Group 1 sixth in the Randwick Guineas it is the second elect Philippi we fancy for the win, Michael Kent’s Host colt to be ridden by ace jockey Luke Nolen coming off a good second over 2040m in the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes at Moonee Valley.

Lay Of The Day – Race 9

#15 Aeronautical ($4)

It’s a fairly open field for the last on the card – the $125,000 Group 3 Sebring HKJC Stakes (1200m) but it is Aeronautical winning the battle at a quote of $4. While they were competitive against a far better field when third in the Newmarket two back they are too hit and miss for us and we are taking this one on. Far prefer to take Each Way odds on market mover Skytrain ($7.50) who has won two of their last three runs including the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes on a Heavy (10) last time out in February – even with their wide draw (12).
