Smoko Dominates 2014 Goodwood Sprint Odds

Ross & Clint Price’s last start Belmont Newmarket winner Smoko has opened odds-on favourite to add to his commanding career record with another victory this weekend in the Goodwood Sprint 2014 at Belmont Park.

The Snitzel five-year-old is one of just six hopefuls making up the field for Saturday’s $100,000 Listed Goodwood Sprint (1300m) – the latest race of the Belmont Winter Racing Carnival.

So far Smoko has suffered just one defeat in seven career starts and as such id dominating the Goodwood Sprint odds at paying $1.45 to add another win to his consistent record.

The gelding’s only loss came at his black-type debut first-up at Belmont on July 12 when a length away second to Pininci after a wide run in the Listed Beaufine Stakes (1000m).

He more than made up for that shock loss on August 9 however with an easy three length win over Dominating in the Listed Belmont Newmarket (1200m).

Saturday sees him shoot for back-to-back Belmont Park wins then and the bookies are taking no chances with this up-and-comer keeping in well in the red.

This year’s Goodwood Sprint is shaping up as a two horse battle if the betting markets are anything to go by with Smoko’s biggest threat coming from barrier six in Barakey.

A $3.10 chance at Ladbrokes to win first-up, the Jim Taylor-trained Key Business seven-year-old hasn’t raced since a ninth to Buffering in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) in November – a race he won back in 2012.

Undefeated at Belmont with five wins from five starts, Barakey has lost just two of his 14 starts making the Group 1 winner a genuine hope especially off two nice trials at the track this winter.

The final Goodwood Sprint hope at single figures on Saturday is then Grant Williams’ black-type winning mare Celebrity Miss paying $8.50 for an upset.

The More Than Ready six-year-old has won three of her past five starts including the Listed H.G. Bolton Stakes (1200m) at the track back on July 30.

Her latest effort then was a third behind Smoko in the Belmont Newmarket that she’ll be looking to improve on when up to 1300m for just the second time.

The rest of the field are at very generous prices with the rails-drawn Belmont Newmarket seventh placed Settle Strada ($41), the Dan Morton-trained Danewin eight-year-old Zester ($51) coming off a second over the 1300m at Kalgoorlie and returning 2013 Perth Cup champ Talent Show ($101) who is set to struggle over the 1300m first-up.
