2013 Ken Russell Memorial Classic – Betting Odds

The Listed 2013 Ken Russell Memorial Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on Saturday is shaping up to be a closely fought affair, at least according to the betting market.

Topping the odds for the two-year-old feature is Brisbane filly Missy Longstocking who returns a $4.40 chance in her first race since running third in the Magic Millions Classic.

But the winner of four of five starts will have to be at the top of her game after drawing the widest in the 17-horse field.

Jockey Damian Browne is not willing to concede defeat on the basis of horror barrier draw, pointing to her Magic Millions as evidence of her ability to get back and run on.

“She showed in the Magic Millions that she could get back, relax and still hit the line,” Browne said.

A further six runners are under double figures with Sydney colt Diamond Oasis the next best at $5.

The John O’Shea-trained youngster was fourth in the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes in March and backed up that peformance to take third place in the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes.

He is just ahead of raw gelding Sir Moments ($5.50) who will be having just his second career start after debuting with a runner-up finish in the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes in December.

Also at $5.50 is Gai Waterhouse-trained filly Florid Affair who will appreciate a drop back in grade after running ninth in the Group 1 Sires’ Produce Stakes at Randwick.

Other horses under double figures include Matt Dunn’s consistent gelding Londehero ($7.50), in-form filly Vienna Queen ($9) and last-start runner-up Little Miss Smiley ($9.50).
