Lloyd Williams-owned Fawkner is the new favourite in the 2013 Group 3 Tramway Stakes (1400m) betting market after Norzita was withdrawn from the race due to injury.
Norzita was the clear favourite for the race that will be run at Royal Randwick on Saturday but she was ruled out of the remainder of the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival due to a soft tissue injury that she suffered during her final gallop today.
With Norzita out, Fawkner has become the punter’s elect in what will be his first appearance at the races since he finished third behind equine superstar Black Caviar in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on March 22.
The Reset gelding had a very successful 2012 Spring Racing Carnival campaign, recording wins in the Listed Sofitel Stakes (1400m), Listed Tavern Stakes (1410m) and Group 3 Tab.Com.Au Stakes (1400m) before finishing a narrow second behind Happy Trails in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1200m).
Fawkner is followed in the Tramway Stakes betting market at Ladbrokes Australia by the Chris Waller-trained trio of Royal Descent ($6), Shoot Out ($6.50) and Sacred Falls ($7.50) as well as Group 1 winner Sincero.
Both Shoot Out and Sacred Falls will be making their first appearances during the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival, while Royal Descent will be second-up after finishing second behind stablemate Hidden Kisses in the Group 3 Toy Show Quality (1300m) at Warwick Farm a fortnight ago.
Sincero will be returning to the races for the first time since he finished ninth behind Ocean Park in the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m), with trainer Stephen Farley setting the six-year-old gelding for the Emirates Stakes rather than the Australasian Weight-For-Age Championship this season.
The 2013 Tramway Stakes betting market is extremely open and you can find the best odds for whoever you fancy at Ladbrokes.com.au.
