Doncaster Mile 2013 Betting Update

After opening at $2.20, 2013 Doncaster Mile favourite Pierro is out to $2.50 ahead of the $2 million race at Randwick on Saturday.

Despite drifting slightly, the three-year-old is still a clear top elect as he attempts to score a fourth consecutive win a sixth career Group 1.

With retirement looming and a career at stud just around the corner, trainer Gai Waterhouse is confident her number one charge can overcome a big weight of 57kg this weekend.

“Pierro earned the biggest smiley face ever seen on a trackwork printout [on Thursday] and Pierro is, according to Mark the best he has ever been,” Waterhouse said.

“All this adds up to a super horse that will be very hard to beat in Sydney’s best race on Saturday.”

No horse comes close to Pierro in betting, with three-year-old filly Norzita the second favourite at $8.50.

Receiving plenty of money is Appearance who has shortened into $9 after opening at $13.

The Guy Walter-trained mare has been in flying form and is proven in wet ground, a likely scenario on Saturday.

There’s no other horse under double figures, with last year’s runner-up Shoot Out the next best at $14.

The Chris Waller-trained gelding will carry the topweight of 58kg, 1.5kg more than he lugged to trail home More Joyous for second in 2012.

Solzhenitsyn ($17) is a Group 1 winner at the distance but the big Queenslander is yet to finish better than fourth from three wet-track starts.

Also considered a $17 chance is Streama who was third behind Appearance and Red Tracer ($26) in the Queen of The Turf Stakes.

Other gallopers of note in the star-studded Doncaster market are Happy Trails ($26), Secret Admirer ($26) and Glass Harmonium ($41).
