Champagne Stakes 2013 Odds Update – Guelph Easing Favourite

Peter Snowden’s in-form filly Guelph may be coming off a Group 1 win in the ATC Sires Produce Stakes at the same track as this afternoon’s 2013 Champagne Stakes at Randwick but her price to complete the double is easing as jump time approaches.

One of four Group 1 showdowns in the Sydney Cup Day program today, the $400,000 Group 1 Moet & Chandon 150th Champagne Stakes (1600m) is due to run as Race 5 at 2:55pm (AEST).

There are 13 two-year-olds still in contention for the Champagne Stakes title today following the early scratching of #13 Diva Dee leaving trainer Anthony Cummings with two remaining chances in Drago and Scandiva.

Earlier in the week Exceed And Excel filly Guelph was as short as $2.30 following her big effort from an awkward gate to win the Group 1 Sires Produce (1400m) here on April 13.

She looks ready for the mile, goes fresh into this after a short let-up, should get a gun run from gate six – why she’s easing is a mystery to us and we’re sticking with her.

The big Champagne Stakes betting market mover meanwhile in from $21 to $11 is then Shahad drawn to perfection in barrier three and ready to strike if the punters’ money is anything to go on.

Gai Waterhouse’s Fastnet Rock filly was second to Scandiva in the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes two back before her fifth in the Sires Produce having drawn double digit gates for both assignments.

She’ll be better positioned this afternoon and the mile is also looking to work in her favour making her a nice Each Way chance.

Another single-figure Champagne Stakes fancy that has actually firmed in their price to win is then Blue Diamond Stakes runner-up Fast ‘N’ Rocking in from $6.50 to $6 now equal second pick with Todman winner Criterion and Sires Produce second placegetter Scandiva also in from $6.50.

The David Hayes-trained colt Fast ‘N’ Rocking was second in the Blue Diamond and the Todman before their credible fifth in the Golden Slipper last time out.

Will appreciate extra distance here based on their breeding, have had three weeks between runs which looks ideal for them and get a gate with barrier one as opposed to 13 (of 16) they had in the Slipper.

A longer-priced chance that has also had some love from the punters is then Equator ($26 into $21) who is undefeated to date.

Waterhouse’s gelding has won both of their career starts firstly at Kembla Grange and then Canterbury but will really be tested class wise here in the big city on Sydney Cup Day.

Odds on one of the team’s Champagne Stakes 2013 Trifecta selections, Riocetto, meanwhile have also eased along with the favourite from $12 to $13 – a nice price for the five length winner of the Listed Fernhill Handicap at this track and distance seven days ago.
