Mossfun Registers as Silver Slipper Market Mover

The 2014 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) has attracted a talented field of just seven runners for this weekend’s Group 2 feature event at Rosehill Gardens, with the final result likely to alter betting markets for the 2014 Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m).

Exciting colt Unencumbered currently leads betting markets for the 2014 Silver Slipper at a quote of $2.90, ahead of Risen From Doubt ($3.80), Law ($4.40) and Team Hawkes-trained Mossfun ($4.60).

Can Unencumbered continue his sensational run of form in the 2014 Silver Slipper, or can Gai Waterhouse chalk up another memorable win with Law?


Unencumbered ($2.90)

Unencumbered has been a two-year-old revelation since debuting on track in the Sharp Plate (1000m) on October 12th; registering a total of five wins from just six starts and easily registering as outright second-favourite for the Golden Slipper behind exciting 2014 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) Champion Earthquake. Having claimed the Group 3 McLachlan Stakes (1200m) and $2 million Magic Millions 2.y.o Classic (1200m) most recently, the talented Testa Rossa colt looks to be in prime position to continue finding the line first this weekend, having drawn the ideal barrier 2.


Law ($4.40)

Having scored two wins from as many starts in his short career to date, Law has quickly firmed as one of the country’s leading two-year-old colts since debuting in October. Trainer Gai Waterhouse has an understandably high opinion of the classy son of Denman, who will again be partnered by in-form jockey Nash Rawiller following their three-and-a-half length success in the Adaptra Handicap (1000m)  on February 8th.


Mossfun ($4.60)

Having also kicked off her racing career in the best way possible, Mossfun has so far claimed two wins from as many starts including the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) ahead of Ygritte and Twirl most recently. Despite drawing the wide barrier 7 for the 2014 Silver Slipper, punters have faith the talented Mossman filly can overcome the early hindrance and have instilled her as the undoubted market mover after opening as a quote of $7.40.
