Toydini Tops Cameron Handicap 2013 Odds

Guy Walter’s Epsom Handicap hopeful Toydini is top of the odds for their second-up spring assignment this afternoon, the four-year-old favourite for the 2013 Cameron Handicap at Newcastle.

Scheduled as Race 7 at 4:40pm (AEST) on the first day of the Newcastle Cup Carnival, the field for the $150,000 Group 3 Summer Bright Lager Cameron Handicap (1500m) is at capacity with 16 starters, the second emergency #18 Koi Fish gaining a run following the early scratching of #4 Tagus and first spar Eye Striker.

It is the widely-drawn Toydini, in from gate 15 to 13, how is heading the Cameron Handicap betting markets however at a quote of $4.40.

They may have a double-digit barrier and the 58kg second top-weight to overcome but the bookies say this Bernardini gelding has the class to overcome.

A dual Group winner in Sydney last season with a 2.5 length effort in the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) and four length romp over subsequent Queensland Derby champ Hawkspur in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m), Toydini has had one run this time in.

They returned at Warwick Farm on August 24 and were two lengths away fifth to Veyron in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) which featured a field of Group 1 performers.

Today they go to Newcastle where their rivals are smart but perhaps not as smart as those in the Warwick Stakes giving jockey Blake Shinn confidence for a win.

“In terms of horses, I wouldn’t swap Toydini for anything,” Shinn told The Daily Telegraph this week.

“Toydini has got a wide gate and big weight, but he’s a class horse who I certainly think is good enough to overcome it.

“He hasn’t put a foot wrong this preparation, he’s improved since his first-up run, and he won second-up in the Phar Lap Stakes over 1500m last preparation.”

All going to plan and Toydini will be backing up in the $500,000 Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Randwick on October 5, a race just one Cameron Handicap winner has gone on to win with Excellerator completing the double in 2002.

“Records are made to be broken,” Walter told The Daily Telegraph.

There are then three other horses under $10 in the markets with:

  • #15 Spurtonic ($5.50) – Looks to remain undefeated this season following three wins on the trot, favourite for this in some markets, prepared by Gai Waterhouse who also prepared 2002 winner Excellerator, needs to win this to get into the Epsom so will be pulling out all the stops
  • #14 That’s A Good Idea ($6.50) – Another in-form galloper coming off back-to-back wins, Joe Pride’s Flying Spur four-year-old last seen saluting as the favourite at Randwick two weeks ago over 1200m
  • #10 High Esteem ($7) – Peter Moody-trained Redoute’s Choice stallion, stakes winner in Adelaide, last start second at Caulfield over 1400m

Other notable chances at double figures that could prove a nice value bet today then include recent Wagga Cup winner Scream Machine ($12), the Chris Waller-trained Altius ($12), Commands six-year-old Transporter ($13) and even veteran seven-year-old Niblick ($26) from the inside barrier who won back-to-back Listed Canberra races back in March.
