Golden Slipper 2013 Tips

It’s one of the biggest events on the Australian racing calendar and the $3.5 million Group 1 2013 Golden Slipper (1200m) finally arrives at Rosehill on Saturday.

All the hype has been about Gai Waterhouse’s flying filly Overreach and she is the short-priced favourite at $2.30.

Money has come for Darley colt Sidestep over the past two days and he is now into $9 after opening at a quote of $12.

Also receiving strong support is proven wet-track performer Sweet Idea who has shortened from $15 to $12 with the news of a potential wet surface.

Criterion ($13) has been in the Slipper picture since winning the Black Opal Stakes and he confirmed his ability when taking out the Todman Stakes, the same Slipper lead-up Pierro won last year.

Villa Verde ($13) was a well beaten second behind Overreach in the Moet and Chandon Stakes while Whittington ($18) is a last-start winner and it’s hard to doubt Gai Waterhouse when it comes to the Slipper.

So who will take out this year’s lucrative juvenile sprint? Need some help deciding your selections? Keep reading as the team have been hard at work analysing the form and replays to bring your our very best Slipper selections.

The Winner

#11 Overreach $2.20

As much as we’ve tried to look past the favourite we haven’t been able to, here’s why:

  • Outstanding form, won by six lengths in the Widden Stakes and 4 1/2 in the Moet and Chandon
  • Drawn barrier one, the alley Pierro and eight other Slipper winners have come from
  • From Gai Waterhouse’s stable, the two-year-old queen with four Slipper champions to her name
  • Has won at both track and distance
  • Has a good relationship with jockey Tommy Berry
  • Is a good beginner, crucial in the high pressure evironment of the Golden Slipper
  • Nothing has got close to her this autumn


#13 Sweet Idea $12

  • Doesn’t have the talent of her stablemate but is a quality and mature juvenile
  • Yet to miss a place from five starts
  • Won the Silver Slipper in heavy conditions and was second in the Magic Millions on a Good 3, versatile filly
  • Showed her toughness and will to win in the Silver Slipper
  • Well drawn in barrier four
  • Jockey-trainer combo of Jim Cassidy and Gai Waterhouse have been there done that with Ha Ha (2001)


#10 Windjammer $51

  • A bit of a roughie, but we think he’s better than his price
  • Was fourth in both the Lonhro Plate and Todman Stakes but runs were better than they looked
  • He received no luck in running and never gave up
  • A bit of luck from barrier 12 he is a big place chance at odds
  • Trainer Bjorn Baker’s stable is flying at the moment
