2013 Sandown Guineas Betting Update

Classy Darley colt Paximadia stamped himself as a horse to watch with his impressive win in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day and he remains a clear favourite to make it back-to-back wins in the Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield this afternoon.

Paximadia started his 2013 Spring Racing campaign with a strong win in the Listed Vinatge Stakes (1410m) at Flemington on October 5 but failed to fire when he made his debut at Caulfield in the Listed Gothic Stakes.

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy admitted that the Commands colt did not handle his first attempt at the unique Caulfield track but believes that he now has a better handle on how to ride the three-year-old.

“All reports are that he has come out of that win in good style and we dominated that day,” McEvoy said

“I was happy to get him out into a nice spot and into a nice rhythm.

“Caulfield he got cluttered away and didn’t enjoy that or the slowish tempo.

“We will take that into consideration when we go back to Caulfield on Saturday and he has the extra furlong as well.

“He is a horse that has really good ability and I am looking forward to keeping him in winning ways this Saturday.”

Paximadia is a clear favourite at $3 in Sandown Guineas betting markets but there has also been some support for Gai Waterhouse-trained Equator who is now into a quote of $4.20.

Equator finished his juvenile campaign with a third place finish behind Guelph and Fuerza in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) but has been unable to record a race win in four starts this preparation.

He returned to the races with a ninth place finish in the Group 3 The Run To The Rose (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens, finishing third in the Listed Dulcify Quality (1600m), sixth in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) before a strong third behind Paximadia in the Carbine Club Stakes.

The best-backed runner in the past 24 hours in Sandown Guineas betting markets has been Anthony Cummings-trained Best Case who us another horse backing up from the Carbine Club Stakes a fortnight ago.

The son of Savabeel is now into a quote of $5.50, to record his first metropolitan victory, after being available at odds of over $8 earlier in the week.
