The 2014 Doncaster Mile has been shaken up significantly in the last 24 hours; with imported galloper Weary now favourite to record his maiden Group 1 win at Royal Randwick this afternoon.
Weary was available at 2014 Doncaster Mile odds of $15 at the start of the week, but has been extremely well-backed since he drew barrier 13 on Tuesday evening and the condition of the Royal Randwick track has worsened.
The son of Astronomer Royal is now into a quote of $5 and is chasing his second straight victory after taking out the Group 3 Doncaster Prelude (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens last weekend.
Messene was a dominant favourite in 2014 Doncaster Mile betting markets at the start of the week, but he is now out to a price of $5.50; with punters worried about how the five-year-old will handle the soft Randwick surface.
The son of Lonhro has recorded seven straight wins in the past 12 months and has scored two impressive wins in the Listed National Sprint (1400m) at Canberra on March 9 and the Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 22 this preparation.
Royal Descent is now on the third line of 2014 Doncaster Mile betting markets and has been extremely well-backed since Australian Turf Club officials announced that the Royal Randwick track would be rated in the heavy range.
The Redoute’s Choice mare worked home strongly to finish an unlucky fifth in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 22 and is a proven perform on wet tracks after scoring a dominant ten lengths win in the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) last year.
Her stablemate Hawkspur has also been well-backed in the past 24 hours and looks to have returned to his best form after starting his autumn preparation with a poor showing in the Group 1 Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on February 8.
Hawkspur bounce back from that effort to finish an impressive third behind Boban and It’s A Dundeel in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) at Warwick Farm on March 8 and was far from disgraced when fourth in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 22.
