Rose Top Choice in Starstuck Classic 2013 Odds

Rose Of Choice has won four of her past five starts and has opened top of the markets to win again when she lines up in the 2013 Starstruck Classic at Perth’s CB Cox Stakes Day this weekend.

Running as Ascot Race 5 at 3:45pm (local), this year’s $100,000 Listed Starstruck Classic (1600m) field features 14 acceptors with the favourite being the Bruce Watkins and Gary Hitchcock-trained Rose Of Choice.

The Choisir mare won three on the trot at Belmont Park during August – September before being turned out for a brief freshen-up.

She resumed last month and looked in very good form when a long neck away second to Rouge Dior in the Listed Jungle Mist Classic (1200m).

It was then back in the winner’s stall for the four-year-old when she was stepped up to the 1400m, Rose Of Choice winning the Listed Jungle Dawn Classic by an easy two and a half lengths.

Regular rider Peter Hall stays on for Saturday’s Starstruck Classic where the top mare has the rails run from barrier one.

She also has the equal 58kg top weight to overcome however which is plenty more than the 54.5kg she had last start and the most she’s carried since July.

The weight hasn’t bothered the bookies however who have her as the clear $2.20 favourite in their latest Starstruck Classic odds.

Just two of her rivals meanwhile are also under $10 in betting with Balmont Girl ($7.50) and Red Hot Sax ($9).

Nicely weighted with 54.5kg, three-year-old Balmont filly Balmont Girl is after her second career win at start number 11, the youngster having broken her maiden status back in April.

This time in she’s ben in excellent form matching it with the best.

Last month she was less than a length away third to Miss Rose De Lago in the Group 3 Champion Fillies Stakes (1600m).

And just last start on December 7 she came within half a length of Newton Prince when runner-up in the Listed Aquanita Stakes (1800m).

Red Hot Sax meanwhile also carries 58kg along with Rose Of Choice, the David Harrison-trained five-year-old coming off a second to her in the Jungle Dawn Classic.

Further down the Starstruck Classic betting markets are then the likes of Bippo No Bungus ($10) coming off a Jungle Dawn sixth, Flying Spur mare Dark Delight ($10), the Simon Miller-trained Darlington Abbey ($11) and Sydney raider Rosalie ($15) out wide in barrier 13.

Prepared by James & Bart Cummings, the New Zealand-bred Testa Rossa mare Rosalie is one of the few interstate raiders stepping out in Perth on Saturday.

She has her first run outside of New South Wales and was last seen running sixth in a 1400m Benchmark 80 at Rosehill on November 30.
