Royal Descent Early George Main Stakes 2013 Market Mover

Despite her last start winning stablemate sitting as the firm favourite in the 2013 George Main Stakes odds for Saturday, the Chris Waller-trained Royal Descent has been the best backed runner in the Randwick classic over the past 24 hours.

Markets on the $350,000 Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m), running as Sydney Race 5 at 3:15pm (AEST), continue to be led by Waller’s Chelmsford Stakes winner Hawkspur who is current favourite too for the Caulfield Cup next month.

The four-year-old son of Purrealist, who also won the Queensland Derby last season, has remained at a steady quote of $2.90 in George Main Stakes betting after drawing gate two with their jockey Jim Cassidy shooting for his 100th Group 1 success.

But Hawkspur is one of four chances in the race for Waller who also saddles up the defending champ Shoot Out, his Doncaster Mile winner Sacred Falls and winner of the ATC Oaks in the autumn Royal Descent.

The now four-year-old daughter of Redoute’s Choice enjoyed the give out of the ground at Randwick in April scoring a nice autumn double with her 2.5 length win in the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m) and her 10 length romp in the mud for the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) title.

First-up she raced at Warwick Farm last month and ran a nice second to Hidden Kisses beaten a quarter length in the Group 3 Toy Show Quality (1300m).

From there she went to the Group 3 Tramway Stakes (1400m) and finished a half length away third after jumping from gate 12 of 14 with 58kg.

Saturday’s weight-for-age conditions see her drop to just 56.5kg with Nash Rawiller jumping on, a fact that hasn’t gone unnoticed by the bookies or punters.

Earlier in the week Royal Descent could be found for $6.50 to win the George Main but she’s since shortened into $5.50 as the second favorite.

Rawiller too is very confident in his mount, going so far as to say she could take down her well-fancied stablemate Hawkspur and become just the third mare in the past three decades to win the George Main.

“I am looking forward to riding her again,” Rawiller told The Herald Sun.

“She is a mare I have had a great association with.

“She has had two runs under her belt now and should be hard to beat.”

The only George Main Stakes winning mares in the past 30 years have been Emancipation (1983), Ma Chiquita (1986) and the mighty More Joyous (2010).

While Royal Descent is getting some love from the punters, George Main Stakes odds on a number of the other major players have eased.

Some of the market drifters include Sacred Falls ($7.50 out to $8) who resumed with a fourth in the Tramway Stakes to Malavio a fortnight ago and the Guy Walter-trained Streama ($8.50 out to $9) last seen running a nice first-up second to Veyron in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) on August 24.
