There is no clear favourite in 2014 Todman Stakes betting markets; with Unencumbered, Jabali and Risen From Doubt all well-backed to take winning form into the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m).
Unencumbered is currently a narrow favourite at 2014 Todman Stakes odds of $3.70, but will be without regular jockey Nathan Berry who remains in a Singapore hospital with viral encephalitis.
Tommy Berry will ride Unencumbered in the Todman Stakes and connections are hoping that the son of Testa Rossa can return to winning form after he finished a disappointing fifth behind Mossfun in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 1.
Jabali has performed well without winning during his racing career and has been well-backed to break his maiden in the Todman Stakes; with the son of Exceed And Excel now available at a quote of $3.90.
The Mick Price-trained galloper finished second behind Risen From Doubt on debut in the Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stakes (1000m) at Flemington during the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival and has produced two strong runs since starting his 2014 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival campaign; finishing second behind Rubick in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m) and second behind Earthquake in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).
Risen From Doubt is also available at 2014 Todman Stakes odds of $3.90 and connections are confident that he can maintain his status as a leading contender for the Golden Slipper with a strong performance this weekend.
The Not A Single Doubt colt returned to the races with a third place finish behind Mossfun in the Silver Slipper and trainer Tony McEvoy believes that his star juvenile will produce a much improved performance on a dry track in the Todman Stakes this weekend.
Wandjina is currently on the fourth line of 2014 Todman Stakes betting markets and is the only other runner in the field that is available at a quote of less than $12.
The Gai Waterhouse-trained colt started his autumn preparation with a strong win in the Australian Turf Club Handicap (1000m) at Warwick Farm on February 19, but finished a disappointing fourth after running greenly in the Listed Lonhro Plate (1100m) at Warwick Farm on March 8.
Other horses in the 2014 Todman Stakes betting market that have received a sprinkling of support include Mick Price-trained Cornrow ($12), Darley colt Ghibellines ($17) and VRC Sires Produce Stakes runner-up Awesome Rock.
