The Galaxy 2014 Betting Update – Snitzerland Out

Gerald Ryan’s former favourite Snitzerland has been scratched from the weekend’s 2014 The Galaxy due to the rain opening up the betting markets and tips on the sprint classic.

The opening Group 1 on the Rosehill race card this Saturday the $400,000 Group 1 Galaxy (1100m), running as Rosehill Race 6 at 3:20pm (AEST), originally drew a final field of 14 acceptors.

Clear favourite was recent Black Caviar Lightning winner Snitzerland who ran second in The Galaxy last Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Her chances for atoning for that run and saluting for the punters on Saturday however have been dashed with Ryan withdrawing her from the race after heavy rainfall has the course proper at Rosehill currently rated a Heavy (9).

With Snitzerland out there’s a possibility of her not racing again in Sydney this autumn with her program now out of whack.

“We might give her a couple of weeks break and aim for Brisbane,” Ryan told The Daily Telegraph.

“If you hang around and wait for the T.J. Smith Stakes and it happens to be wet again, then we have wasted three weeks.”

The $2.5 million Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) runs at Randwick on April 12 and Snitzerland is currently rated a $10 fancy in the futures markets which are led by Mick Price’s Oakleigh Plate – Newmarket Handicap winner Lankan Rupee.

The new favourite in The Galaxy odds meanwhile is Rain Affair ($6.50).

Joe Pride’s six-year-old is the major market mover having been slashed in from $11, the son of Commands boasting an impressive wet track record.

They’re undefeated from five runs on Slow-rated tracks, and from three attempts on Heavy ground they have two wins and a third.

Rain Affair then is tipped to return to their previous ace form and improve on their two below par runs this time in, most recently a distant ninth of 10 runners in the Canterbury Stakes from March 15.

Third pick at $6.50 then is the Anthony Cummings-trained Not A Single Doubt filly Villa Verde in from $7.

She comes off a nice first-up win in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes over Snitzerland but is yet to perform on a wet track.

Odds on the John O’Shea-trained Kencella, a 52kg light weight, have eased from $6.50 out to $7 while the other The Galaxy single figure chances are then Sessions ($8.50 in from $9), Temple Of Boom ($8.50 in from $10) and Famous Seamus ($9.50 in from $11).

Winner of the 2012 The Galaxy, Temple Of Boom is another proven performer on Heavy tracks with two wins from three starts.

After a first-up eighth in the Challenge Stakes where under two lengths separated them from the winner, the Tony Gollan-trained Piccolo seven-year-old should be fitter here and better over the distance.

Challenge Stakes third placegetter Famous Seamus meanwhile is another known mudlark with improvement in them with a victory here at Rosehill in the mud from two years ago.
