Sandown Guineas 2013 Odds – Paximadia Favourite

Peter Snowden’s Carbine Club Stakes winning colt Paximadia has opened narrow favourite to take out the 2013 Sandown Guineas this Saturday at Caulfield Racecourse.

Traditionally held at Sandown Racecourse, which is currently undergoing an upgrade, the $350,000 Group 2 Sportingbet Sandown Guineas (1600m) has this year drawn a final field of 11 hopefuls.

Of those it is the Darley-owned son of Commands Paximadia who the bookies have installed as the early favourite in Sandown Guineas betting.

Third to Romantic Touch in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) as a two-year-old in Brisbane during the winter the up and comer has had three runs this time in for two wins.

The most recent of those was at Flemington on Derby Day where they defeated a decent field to win the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) when wearing winkers for the first time.

Saturday they race at Caulfield for the first time since their failed eighth to Hucklebuck, who was runner-up in the Carbine, in the Listed Gothic Stakes (1400m) back on October 19.

Their good gate five draw and last start victory have seen Paximadia open as the $3.50 top fancy.

Two hopefuls then follow in the Sandown Guineas odds at an equal price of $4.20 with the Gai Waterhosue-trained Equator and Choisir colt Apollo’s Choice drawn in gates nine and 11 respectively.

Northern Meteor gelding Equator, third to Guelph in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes as a two-year-old over the Randwick mile, was also defeated by another Snowden galloper in their latest elite level assignment when sixth to Complacent in the Spring Champion Stakes over 2000m on October 12 in Sydney.

On November 2 they travelled to Melbourne for the first time and thrived coming back to the mile when third in the Carbine.

Shea Eden’s Cranbourne galloper Apollo’s Choice meanwhile won their opening two career starts before their credible fourth to Dothraki in the Listed Springtime Stakes (1400m) last Saturday.

The other single figure chance at $7.50 is then Anthony Cummings’ Savabeel gelding Best Case, coming off a fourth in the Carbine, to be ridden by Melbourne Cup winning jockey Damien Oliver.

Also in the mix at better odds are then the likes of the lightly raced Outlandish ($12) in their metro debut at start number three and Sale-based Magnus colt Pompeius ($16) who ran second over 1800m at Flemington in the Batman Stakes on Crown Oaks Day last start.
