2014 The Goodwood Betting Update – Plenty Of Winning Chances

The 2014 The Goodwoodis set to be one of the most open Group 1 races of the 2013/2014 racing season; with punters happy to back plenty of runners in the $500,000 event that will be held at Morphettville on Saturday.

The current favourite in 2014 The Goodwood betting markets is Gai Waterhouse-trained Driefontein, who has scored two wins since making her racing debut in Adelaide in April.

Driefontein made a slow start to her autumn preparation, but returned to her best form with a win over Platelet and Just Discreet in the Group 3 Irwin Stakes (1100m) at Morphettville on April 12 and produced a most impressive front-running effort to record her maiden win at Group 1 level in the Robert Sangster Classic (1200m) at the same venue on April 26.

The Fastnet Rock mare is still a narrow favourite in Robert Sangster Stakes betting markets and has remained solid at a quote of $7 throughout the week.

Miracles Of Life is currently on the second line of 2014 The Goodwood betting markets at a quote of $7.50 after she extended her racing career by at least one start by winning the Group 2 Euclase Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville last weekend.

The daughter of Not A Single Doubt will be sold at the National Magic Millions Sale at the Gold Coast at the end of the month and a second victory at Group 1 level, following her famous triumph in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) last year, is sure to further increase her value.

No horse in more than a century has won the Robert Sangster Stakes in back-to-back years in more than a century, but last year’s winner Platelet has remained steady at a quote of $8 throughout the week, despite drawing towards  the outside of the field.

Platelet returned to racing with a narrow win in the 55 Second Handicap (955m) at Moonee Valley on March 21 and finished a solid second behind Driefontein in both the Irwin Stakes and Robert Sangster Stakes.

Andrew Noblet-trained Sistine Demon was favourite when the 2014 The Goodwood field was released earlier in the week, but he has drifted out to odds of $9 after drawing barrier 20 for the Group 1 event at Morphettville tomorrow.

Sistine Demon has recorded seven wins from his last eight starts and stamped himself as a legitimate Group contender with a win in the Listed Super Saturday Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on March 8 before recording a dominant six lengths victory in the Group 3 Victoria Handicap (1400m) at Caulfield on April 19.

Darley sprinter Sessions has failed to fire since returning to the races for the 2014 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, finishing sixth in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes, fourth in the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) and tenth in the Group 1 T.J. Smith Stakes (1200m), but is still rated a $10 chance in the 2014 The Goodwood betting market.

There has been support for just about every runners in the Group 1 event and Nikki Burke-trained Unpretentious ($10), Group 1 placegetter Gregers ($10), McKay Stakes winner Essay Raider ($12), David Hayes-trained Pago Rock ($26), 2013 The Galaxy winner Bel Sprinter ($21) and last start winner Office Bearer all represent good value at their current quote.
