2014 Winter Stakes Betting Update

A talented field of ten runners have been confirmed for the 2014 Listed Winter Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens this weekend, offering punters exceptional value from a betting point on view and several key opportunities to place a winning bet.

Strolling home to win the Listed Civic Stakes (1350m) on July 5th, classy sprinter Generalife has opened as and maintained status as slight favourite for success in betting markets for the 2014 Winter Stakes, currently offered at a quote of $3.40.

Securing an impressive record of seven wins and four minor places from just 20 competitive starts so far, Generalife has returned to the track in particularly impressive form this season; failing to finish worse than third just once from six appearances on course.

Displaying a keen turn of foot to run on for third in the City Jeep Handicap (1200m) on March 10th, the Lonhro gelding was unlucky to be blocked for a run in theraces.com.au 3.y.o+ (1400m) on April 16th, but responded in the best way possible when comfortably winning the Westaflex BM85 (1300m) just two weeks later.

Having claimed back-to-back victories in his two most recent appearances, Generalife is more than worth a wager at current odds for success at Rosehill Gardens this weekend, particularly after drawing the central barrier 6.

Also aiming for a third consecutive race win in the 2014 Winter Stakes, Scream Machine is currently sole occupant of the second line of betting for success this weekend at $3.50 odds

Returning for third in the Power Access 3.y.o+ (1350m) on May 10th, Scream Machine headed to Brisbane and displayed a keen turn of foot to finish sixth in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m), before being unlucky to miss the cut for the featured Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap on June 7th.

Returning to Sydney for back-to-back victories in the Sydney Markets Limited Handicap (1400m) and Natski Handicap (1500m) most recently, trainer Jason Coyle is confident the step back in distance will suit the Excites gelding’s chances of winning in the step up in class.

Confirmed to be partnered by in-form jockey Tye Angland, Scream Machine will have to overcome the relatively wide and awkward barrier 10 at Rosehill on Saturday.

Interestingly featuring as the only other runner currently offered at a quote of less-than $10 to win the 2014 Winter Stakes, Romantic Moon was arguably the biggest winner at Wednesday’s barrier draw having received the ideal gate 1.

Steadily building to the task over four starts this time in, the More Than Ready filly was disappointing when tenth in a minor event over 1200 metres first-up but has since finished third twice and strolled home to win the Spring Carnival On Sale Fillies Maiden (1500m) most recently on June 28th.

Confirmed to be partnered by jockey Christian Reith, punters may find value in adding Romantic Moon as a trifecta option, with odds of $2 currently offered for the three-year-old to run a place in the Winter Stakes.
