2014 Champagne Stakes Odds – Peggy Jean Narrow Favourite

Gerald Ryan’s ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes winning filly Peggy Jean has opened narrow favourite to make it back-to-back Group 1s at Randwick this Saturday in the Champagne Stakes 2014.

Running as Race 5 at 2:50pm (AEST), this year’s $400,000 Group 1 Moet & Chandon Champagne Stakes (1600m) features a talented line-up of 10 two-year-olds.

Two of those are currently battling for favouritism in the Champagne Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, with Myboycharlie filly Peggy Jean sitting as the narrow $3 favourite.

She’s drawn out in the far barrier (10 of 10) and will have Nash Rawiller in the saddle again after the two combined last start on April 12 to win the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce (1400m) in the wet.

Prior to that Peggy Jean ran a solid second, also on a Heavy Sydney course, behind subsequent Golden Slipper third placegetter Bring Me The Maid in the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes.

She’ll see a firmer track on Saturday, and the mile for the first time, but is still well fancied to become a dual Group 1 champion after her solid effort in the Sires.

Hot on Peggy Jean’s heels in the latest Champagne Stakes betting markets at $3.30 is then Veuvelicious, Brent Stanley’s Northern Meteor filly also coming off a win.

She put them to bed last weekend at the track and distance with her Listed Fernhill Handicap (1600m) with a three and a half length victory over Careless, and gets the chance to step up in class here on the seven day back-up.

There are then three other single figure fancies in the Champagne Stakes markets with:

  • #3 Bachman ($5) – Stable mate of the favourite this fellow Ryan-trained galloper has won their past two on the trot, the All American colt last seen on April 5 at Rosehill taking out the Group 3 Schweppervescence over 1400m, another one stepping up in distance
  • # Go Indy Go ($7) – Lightly-raced daughter of Bernardini, Leon MacDonald-trained Adelaide raider who has just her fourth career start here, another Sires Produce winner but at Morphettville from a fortnight ago, outside of South Australia for the first time in their interstate debut, drawn in six with Chad Schofield riding
  • #1 Scratch Me Lucky ($9.50) – Best tried of the bunch with eight starts, has only the one win however at Canterbury from the start of March, second to Bachman two back and then second in the Sires’ Produced last start that they’ll be looking to go one better than here

The rest of the field are at blow out odds, the only other under $20 being the rails drawn Kumaon ($17), the Peter Snowden-trained Lonhro colt coming off a Sires Produce sixth.
