2013 Emirates Stakes Betting Update – Boban Remains Clear Favourite

Chris Waller-trained Boban remains the clear favourite in 2013 Emirates Stakes betting markets; with the classy entire remaining a $3.50 chance to record the fifth straight victory of his 2013 Spring Racing Carnivalcampaign.

Boban opened at a quote of $4.60 that was quickly snapped up by punters and he has stayed steady at a quote of about $3.50 for the past 24 hours.

The Bernardini gelding has been flawless this preparation and, if he is successful today, a case could be made that has been the most successful horse of the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival; winning the Group 3 Bill Ritchie Handicap (1400m), Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) and Group 3 Moonga Stakes (1400m) in impressive fashion.

The other well-backed runner in 2013 Emirates Stakes betting markets has been Boban’s stablemate Sacred Falls who returned to his best form when he finished an unlucky third behind Toydini in the Group 3 Crystal Mile (1600m).

Sacred Falls failed to fire in the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) or Epsom Handicap but is well-weighted in this event and punters are confident that he can record his first race win since his triumph in the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap (1600m) at Royal Randwick during the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Toydini has drifted slightly in the last 24 hours but still remains one of the fancies at 2013 Emirates Stakes odds of $7.

The Guy Walter-trained gelding recorded an impressive win in the Group 3 Cameron Handicap (1500m), finished a narrow third behind Boban in the Epsom Handicap before scoring a gusty victory in the Crystal Mile.

The son of Bernardini is chasing his first victory at Group 1 level but meets the majority of the field, especially Boban, better in the weights than he did in the Epsom Handicap when he was beaten by less than half a length.

Also coming out of the Epsom Handicap is Gai Waterhouse-trained Spurtonic who is dropping back to a mile after winning the Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m) in impressive fashion on Caulfield Cup Day.

This is not the first time the son of Flying Spur has dropped back to a mile after racing over longer distances and jockey Tommy Berry believes that it is actually a benefit for the consistent four-year-old.

The only runner in 2013 Emirates Stakes betting markets at single figure odds is Colin Scott-trained Speediness who is available at odds of $9.50 after running well without winning in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m), Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) and Crystal Mile.
