2014 Rowley Mile Betting – Top Four Hard to Split

Four smart milers dominate the betting for this afternoon’s Rowley Mile 2014 at Sydney’s Hawkesbury Racecourse with the bookies having a hard time separating the chances of the consistent quartet.

Originally this year’s $100,000 Listed ILG XXXX Gold Hawkesbury Rowley Mile (1600m) drew a final field of a dozen acceptors.

Two early scratchings from Scottish Border and Wild And Proud, drawn in barriers one and two respectively, however has seen the number of hopes drop to 10.

Of those four are paying $5 or under in the latest Rowley Mile betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Current narrow favourite at $4.60 is market mover Mr Chard due to jump from barrier four with top Sydney hoop Kerrin McEvoy riding.

Tony McEvoy’s Al Samer seven-year-old comes off some good form this winter having run second in his two most recent runs.

The latest of those was on August 9 when runner-up behind Group 1 The Galaxy winner Tiger Tees in the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap (1200m) at Flemington, form the bookies are tipping to stand up here.

Mr Chard is also well performed on rain affected tracks and Hawkesbury is currently rated a Slow (7) meaning the punters are coming for the known wet trackers.

Occupying the second line of betting at $4.80 is then one of the five Chris Waller-trained Rowley Mile hopes, I’m Imposing with the second widest gate (9) to overcome.

The veteran Danehill Dancer nine-year-old is an ageing stallion but his recent form defies his years.

Two back I’m Imposing enjoyed a good Shoot Out Handicap win over the Randwick mile before his last start second behind stablemate He’s Your Man in the Listed Winter Challenge Final (1500m) at Rosehill at the start of the month.

Jockey Tye Angland was aboard the warhorse for both of those runs and retains the mount today.

Former favourite now equal third pick in the Rowley Stakes odds at $5 is then La Amistad, to be ridden by premiership winning hoop James McDonald from the inside alley.

A winner of five of her 11 starts the Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes-trained Redoute’s Choice mare races for the first time since May 24 when beating home Destiny’s Kiss by a big four lengths in the Listed WJ McKell Cup (2400m) at Randwick.

Five-year-old La Amistad is nominated for all the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival majors this season including the $3 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) on October 18 for which she pays $17 to win through Ladbrokes.com.au.

The other $5 fancy for this afternoon’s clash is then WJ McKell Cup runner-up Destiny’s Kiss.

Blake Shinn is booked to ride Joe Pride’s Power Of Destiny gelding, the six-year-old out to turn the tables on La Amistad here.

He has had two extra runs since the McKell however including an impressive win in the Stayers Cup over the two miles at Randwick on a Heavy (8) to give him five wins from nine starts on Heavy tracks.

Destiny’s Kiss was last seen running fifth to Secessio on June 28 in the Listed Winter Cup (2400m) and will appreciate the give out of the track.

The other single figure fancy in Rowley Mile betting paying $7 through Ladbrokes is then Copy Ay Tee in barrier 10.

Waller’s Danske gelding ran third in the Winter Challenge two back in a Waller-trained trifecta but failed at Rosehill last Saturday when 10th to Entirely Platinum over 1400m.
