Catkins Out of 2014 Dane Ripper Stakes – Betting Update

Under vet’s instruction the Chris Waller-trained favourite Catkins has been scratched from the Dane Ripper Stakes 2014 opening up the markets for Saturday’s showdown and putting her Group 1 run later during the carnival in danger.

The always honest Dubawi four-year-old was short priced favourite paying around $3.30 to win the $200,000 Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1400m) at Eagle Farm Racecourse on Stradbroke Handicap Day.

Winner of the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill two back, Catkins was last seen running sixth in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) on April 19 at Randwick.

She was tipped as the one to beat in the Dane Ripper for her Brisbane debut, a race won by her stable mate Red Tracer 12 months ago, before a clash with her in the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) back at the track on June 21.

Catkins however was scratched on Friday morning and withdrawn from the markets she was leading in a surprise move after Waller only yesterday was talking up her chances to the media.

With the top elect out of contention the new leader of the Dane Ripper Stakes odds in from $6 to $4.60 is then the Gai Waterhouse-trained Cosmic Endeavour.

Drawn in gate four with Tommy Berry riding, the three-year-old Northern Meteor filly has won two of her past three starts and is looking to go back-to-back in her Brisbane debut.

The nicely-bred youngster enjoyed a Group 2 victory in the Sapphire Stakes at Randwick in April before their third in the Hawkesbury Darley Crown over 1300m.

Last start Cosmic Endeavour went up to the 1400m, which she sees again on Saturday, to score a tidy half length win over a field of fellow three-year-olds in the Inglis Scone Guineas on May 17.

She’s followed in the weekend’s markets then by stable mate Driefontein, Waterhouse’s Robert Sangster Stakes winner at $6 in from $7.50.

Fastnet Rock four-year-old Driefontein has been well beaten in her past two runs, most recently behind Spirit Of Boom in the Doomben 10,000, but is down in class for this and back against the girls.

The big Dane Ripper Stakes betting market mover meanwhile is Belle De Coeur, fourth favourite for the $1.36 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) but almost certain to miss out on a run.

She opened at $10 earlier in the week but has since firmed dramatically and is now right into $6.50, Michael Rodd riding Luke Price’s visiting Victorian mare.

The Show A Heart four-year-old, third to Cosmic Endeavour in the Sapphire three back, was last seen running in the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) at Doomben on May 24.

There she came within one and a quarter lengths of the flying Srikandi who is now co-favourite in the Stradbroke Handicap betting markets, form the punters and bookies are starting to take note of.

Next best in better are then John O’Shea’s Hawkesbury Crown winner Aerobatics ($10) who comes off a second in the Dark Jewel Classic on Scone Cup Day and the Simon Miller-trained Perth Group 1 performer Platinum Rocker ($12) who was third in the Glenlogan.

The latest Dane Ripper Stakes 2014 odds are below, the fixed win prices now amended after the withdrawal of Catkins.
