Washington Heights Tops Ming Dynasty Quality Handicap 2014 Odds

Gerald Ryan’s 2014 Golden Rose-bound colt Washington Heights has opened the short priced favourite to continue his spring with a win in the Ming Dynasty Quality Handicap at Randwick this weekend.

The son of Commands is one of 10 three-year-olds originally accepted for the $125,000 Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality Handicap (1400m) on Saturday, the field for which is down one after John O’Shea withdrew #7 Meursault.

Washington Heights then has firmed in from $2.70 to $2.30 through Ladbrokes.com.au to break his maiden status with a win here second-up before backing-up Saturday week in the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m).

He is one of the top fancies in early Golden Rose betting paying $10 to win, a price set to firm if he can salute for the punters in the Ming Dynasty this weekend.

Having his third career start here, Washington Heights has run second in both of his earlier runs finishing second each time.

On debut he was beaten one and a quarter lengths by subsequent Group 3 Run To The Rose winner Hallowed Crown in the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes in the wet at Randwick in April.

Then this time in the up-and-comer caught the eye again when three quarters of a length off Nostradamus in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes over 1100m at Rosehill run on a Good (3) on August 16.

Following the favourite in Ming Dynasty Quality Handicap betting are then three other single figure hopes with:

  • #1 Valentia ($6) – Gai Waterhouse-trained Fastnet Rock colt coming off a good first-up third behind Scissor Kick in the Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes (1300m) at the track from August 23. Was in the Golden Slipper field but outclassed when 12th on the back of a Group 2 Randwick win in the Skyline Stakes. Loves the course here and should be enjoying the 1400m.
  • #3 Panzer Division ($6) – Paul Messara’s son of Redoute’s Choice also comes via a run in the Up & Coming Stakes having crossed a nostril flare off the winner when second first-up. Won his only other outing other than that with a successful debut at Kembla Grange back in July and showung plenty of promise.
  • #Lady Sharapova ($7) – Best fancied filly to beat the boys this daughter of Fastnet Rock is prepared by Team Hawkes and comes off a Canterbury win over 1250m from four weeks ago. Was black-type placed on debut in February when third in the Talindert Stakes before a credible sixth in the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes behind Bring Me The Maid. The winner has trumped that form since and the step up in distance here should suit.

Other notable hopes at longer prices out for an upset then include Peter Moody’s Silver Shadow Stakes third placed O’Reilly filly Clover Lane, dual winning Northern Meteor colt Shooting To Win looking to atone for an eighth in the Up & Coming and last start Warwick Farm winner on a Heavy (10) on debut Road To Shangri La all paying $15.
