2014 Up And Coming Stakes Odds – Two Battle for Top Spot

Two nice three-year-olds currently battle for favouritism in the markets for Saturday’s Golden Rose lead-up, the Up & Coming Stakes 2014 one of five Group races at Randwick on the weekend.

There are 11 in the mix for this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Synergy FX Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) that runs as Randwick Race 3 at 1:50pm on Warwick Stakes Day.

A host of $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) hopefuls for the upcoming September 13 feature will face off in the Up And Coming Stakes field including Better Land and Scissor Kick.

These two occupying the first lines of Up And Coming Stakes betting at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $4.20 and $4.80 respectively.

They are also the two shortest priced of Saturday’s hopefuls in the futures Golden Rose odds at Ladbrokes both installed as $10 chances in markets led by Gai Waterhouse’s JJ Atkins winner Almalad ($7).

Drawn in barrier seven for Saturday with Glyn Schofield to ride, narrow Up And Coming Stakes favourite Better Land lines up for his third career start.

On debut the Peter Moody-trained Shamardal colt enjoyed a win in the wet at Sale before coming back on August 9 at Randwick for a second in the Listed The Rosebud (1200m) run on a Good (3).

He gets the chance to turn the tables on The Rosebud winner Scissor Kick then on Saturday with the wet track to work in his favour.

Scissor Kick has barrier five to jump from with Tye Angland booked for the ride on the Paul Messara-trained young gun, the Redoute’s Choice colt shooting for his third straight win.

He won at Canterbury first-up over 1250m before his The Rosebud success but failed on debut on a Slow (7) track to run second last behind Scratch Me Lucky back in March and so must handle the wet conditions to make it three on the trot here.

In a fairly open market there are then four other single figure Up And Coming Stakes chances with:

  • #5 Meursault ($6) – John O’Shea-trained Godolphin entry, this Medaglia D’Oro colt has had just the one start when he won over 1300m at Hawkesbury on May 3, first-up again here then and has trialled well at Rosehill on Heavy going before so can handle a wet track on the weekend and distance looks ideal
  • #4 Liberation ($8.50) – Gai Waterhouse’s Fastnet Rock colt drawn well in barrier three, won two back over 1200m at Rosehill before stepping up to the 1300m on August 2 when runner-up behind Press Report, only a nose off the winner that day and will take improvement from the run, need to handle the soft track though which he didn’t do back in March on a Slow (7) at Canterbury when fifth to Scratch Me Lucky
  • #1 Valentia ($9) – Waterhouse’s other hopeful, fellow son of Fastnet Rock carries the 59kg top weight, that is 2.5kg more than the weight he had when 12th in the Golden Slipper last time out, won two on the trot before that however including the Group 2 Skyline Stakes at Randwick, had two good trials also at Randwick leading up to this return including a win over Bennetta at the start of the month
  • #2 Kumaon ($9) – Second heaviest weighted hope with 58.5kg, O’Shea’s second acceptor is a James McDonald mount jumping from the inside alley, the Lonhro colt runner-up in the Group 2 Pago Pago on a Heavy (9) behind Time for War in late March before a decent sixth to Peggy Jean in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce (1400m), last start was over the Randwick mile when third to Go Indy Go, first-up record is good so far and have form on rain-affected ground

Outside of these at more generous odds are then the likes of Messara’s last start Kembla Grange winner on debut Panzer Division ($11), the Chris Waller-trained Group 1 performer Hero I Am ($12) coming off a fifth in The Rosebud and Peter & Paul Snowden’s Northern Meteor colt Shooting To Win ($13) who has won both his starts so far.
