2013 Winterbottom Stakes Betting Update

There has been a big move for Australia’s newest champion sprinter in 2013 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) betting markets; with Buffering now into even money to take out the Group 1 event at Ascot this afternoon.

Buffering looked as though he may never win a race at Group 1 level when Linton received a dream run down the inside to beat him in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm during the 2013 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival but has stamped himself as the best sprinter in Australia with three strong performances during the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival.

The Mossman gelding started his preparation with a second place finish behind Samaready in the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1200m) before finally ending his Group 1 drought when he held-off a fast-finishing Lucky Nine to win the Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley.

Buffering was a big drifter in betting in the lead-up to the Group 1 VRC Sprint Classic (1200m) but led from start to finish to record an memorable win and give himself a shot at becoming the first horse in history to win the Manikato Stakes, VRC Sprint Classic and Winterbottom Stakes in the same year.

Leading Western Australian sprinter Barakey ($4.60) won the Winterbottom Stakes in impressive fashion last year and has been well backed to become the first horse to win the race in back-to-back years since Hardrada in 2003.

Barakey has recorded an amazing twelve wins from thirteen career starts but will need to be at his very best and improve on his effort in the Group 3 Prince Of Wales Stakes (1200m) to beat the strong field in the 2013 edition of the Winterbottom Stakes.

Spirit Of Boom finished an unlucky third behind Barakey in last year’s Winterbottom Stakes and is currently on the third line of betting for this year’s race at odds of $7.

The Sequalo entire brings much stronger form into the race this year, winning the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m) before finishing second behind Fontelina in the Group 2 Yellowglen Stakes (1200m) on Victoria Derby Day, and trainer Tony Gollan believes that this is the six-year-old’s best chance to score a maiden Group 1 win.

The only other runner in the Winterbottom Stakes field at odds of less than $10 is Peter Moody-trained Moment Of Change ($8) who is chasing his first race win since his victory in the 2012 Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m).

Moment Of Change has raced consistently this campaign but will need to improve to turn-the-tables on Buffering; with the leading Queensland sprinter finishing ahead of the Newmarket Handicap runner-up in the Moir Stakes, Manikato Stakes and VRC Sprint Classic.

There is still plenty of time left to bet on the Winterbottom Stakes and you can find the best odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.
