Having been confirmed to line up amongst a final field of nine, talented five-year-old Bonaria has registered as equal-favourite and undoubted market mover in betting fields for the 2014 Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy (1600m) at Flemington on Saturday, at a current quote of $3.80.
Bonaria has returned to the track in top form in 2014, following up a competitive third behind A Time For Julia in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) first-up with a comfortable win over Hazard and Hi Belle in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m) last time out.
Having drawn the ideal barrier 3 for the 2014 Schweppervescence Trophy, usual partner Michael Rodd has been confirmed to take the ride and will be particularly hard to beat.
Sharing the top line of wagering with Bonaria in Schweppervescence Trophy betting markets, Colin Little-trained Text’n Hurley opened as outright favourite, but has drifted slightly as punters have rushed to get behind her key opponent.
The Hard Spun mare has returned to the track in good form this preparation, following up a less-than-convincing sixth in the Allan Wicks Fillies Maiden (1200m) first-up with two well-fought places and a win in the Inglis Easter Fillies Maiden (2040m) on February 21st.
Having drawn barrier 2 inside Bonaria, a highly anticipated mile-off between these two talented runners in the 2014 Schweppervescence Trophy is shaping as one of the day’s most exciting head-to-heads.
Fresh off the back on an incredible run for first in the Group 3 Frances Tressady Stakes (1400m) on March 1st, in-form mare Five All is currently offered at a quote of $6 and is outright third-favourite for the 2014 Schweppervescence Trophy.
Trainer Darren Weir revealed he had to be talked into entering the exciting Court Of Jewels mare in her maiden Group-level tilt last time, but was understandably happy to be proven wrong when she crossed the line in the clear.
Five All lines up for the 2014 Schweppervescence Trophy having claimed five wins and six places from only 12 starts, and will likely revel from barrier 6 with jockey Michelle Payne confirmed to retain the ride.
Only two other runners are currently offered at a price of less-than $10; John Gunning-trained Hi Belle ($7) and Elms Handicap (1700m) winner Are There Any ($8).Ladbrokes is displaying the best odds for the 2014 Schweppervescence Trophy!
