2013 Golden Slipper Track and Betting Update

As predicted by officials on Friday, the track rating for 2013 Golden Slipper Day at Rosehill is a Slow 7.

The wet track  leaves the majority of Golden Slipper runners heading into unknown territory as they attempt to score top honours in the $3.5 million sprint.

Gai Waterhouse-trained favourite Overreach has been on the drift since the wet weather was predicted and she is now out to $2.70 after being as short as $2.10 at bookmaker.com.au on Wednesday.

The money has continued to pour for Sweet Idea who has shortened to $8.50 from her opening quote of $15.

Also from the stable of four-time winning trainer Waterhouse, Sweet Idea is one of the few Slipper contenders proven in the wet.

The daughter of Snitzel toughed out a gritty win in the Silver Slipper on heavy ground last month.

Steady at $9 is Darley colt Sidestep who was the early week market mover. The Peter Snowden-trained galloper is backing up seven days after winning the Pago Pago Stakes and will have blinkers applied for the hit-out.

There has been little movement in the rest of the betting market and Victorian grey Villa Verde remains a $12 chance.

The Shaun Dwyer-trained filly was considered the best chance of upsetting Overreach before finishing 4 1/2 lengths behind her in the Moet and Chandon Stakes.

Also expected to thrive in the soft ground is New Zealand filly Ruud Awakening ($13) but she will have to overcome her outside barrier position.

Joining Ruud Awakening at $13 is Todman Stakes winner Criterion who will chase a third consecutive victory.

Blue Diamond runner-up Fast ‘N’ Rocking has shortened to $19 from $21, the same price as Gai Waterhouse’s third runner Whittington.
