2014 Randwick Guineas Betting Update

The 2014 Randwick Guineas is the feature race at Royal Randwick this afternoon and is one of the most open editions in the history of the event; with five horses currently available at single figure odds.

The current favourite in 2014 Randwick Guineas betting markets is Kiwi colt El Roca ($4), who has been one of the best backed runners since betting opened at the start of the week.

El Roca started his 2014 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival campaign with a comfortable win in the Listed Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) and, after missing the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) in controversial circumstances, performed well against the older horses in the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m) at Warwick Farm last weekend.

On the second line of 2014 Randwick Guineas betting markets is fellow Kiwi colt Atlante, who has drifted out to odds of $7 in the past 24 hours.

Atlante won the Group 1 New Zealand 2000 Guineas (1600m) in impressive fashion at Riccarton Park on November 9 and made his Australian racing debut with a second place finish behind Dissident in the Hobartville Stakes at Rosehill Gardens on March 1.

Dissident may have beaten Atlante in the Hobartville Stakes, but the Sebring colt is behind the New Zealander in Randwick Guineas betting markets at odds of $9.

The Peter Moody-trained colt was narrowly denied a maiden win at Group 1 level during the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival, finishing second behind Zoustar in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m), and has been a very consistent performer at the highest level of racing.

Bull Point rounded out the placings in the 2013 Golden Rose Stakes and the Fastnet Rock colt is currently available at Randwick Guineas odds of $8.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained galloper resumed with an impressive win in the Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on February 1 and was far from disgraced when fourth behind Moment Of Change in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) at the same venue a fortnight later.

While there has been money for a number of runners in Randwick Guineas betting market, the clear market mover has been Team Cummings-trained Eurozone who is now available at a quote of $8.

Eurozone was narrowly denied a first-up victory by Moment Of Change in the Group 1 Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on February 8, but was unable to replicate that performance in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m); fading in the final stages to finish fourth.

Trainer James Cummings believes that the Northern Meteor colt will be better suited by the conditions at Royal Randwick this weekend and punters obviously agree.
