2014 Golden Rose Betting Update: Plenty Of Support For Better Land

Bring Me The Maid remains a clear favourite in 2014 Golden Rose betting markets, but stablemate Better Land has been the best backed runner this morning and is now into a quote of $5.50.

Better Land opened at Golden Rose odds of $7 when the final field for the Group 1 event was released on Tuesday and remained steady at the quote until this morning when there were a number of large bets placed on the Shamardal colt.

The three-year-old is yet to record a black type racing win, but he impressed with two unlucky efforts in the Listed The Rosebud (1200m) at Royal Randwick on August 9 and the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) at Royal Randwick on August 23.

Bring Me The Maid has been Golden Rose favourite since the barrier draw was conducted on Tuesday and she is currently available at odds of $3.70 to join Forensics as the only filly to win the Group 1 event.

Leading online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au is offering the best odds on every single runner in the Golden Rose and new customers who sign-up and deposit can score a free bet worth up to $250 that can be used to back Bring Me The Maid or any other runner in the race.

The daughter of Sebring won the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) and finished third in the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m), but looks to have gone to another level after she recorded a comfortable victory in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick on August 23.

Hallowed Crown is alongside Better Land at Golden Rose odds of $5.50 and the talented colt has remained steady at that quote throughout the week.

The Team Cummings-trained three-year-old returned to the races with a fast-finishing win in the Group 3 Run To The Rose (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens on August 30 and the son of Street Sense has the chance to join Denman (2009) as the only horses to complete the Run To The Rose/Golden Rose double.

Nostradamus ($10) and Almalad ($10) both failed to fire in the Run To The Rose, but connections are hoping that they can produce a better performance on a firmer Rosehill Gardens, while Scissor Kick is available at the juicy odds of $12 to record his fourth straight win in the Golden Rose.

The best-backed outside in 2014 Golden Rose Stakes betting markets has been Godolphin colt Sarajevo, who is now into odds of $12 after being available at a quote of $17 earlier in the week.

Sarajevo was well-backed in the lead-up to the Listed The Rosebud (1200m) at Royal Randwick on August 9, but could finish no better than fourth and he finished in the same position in the Run To The Rose two weeks later.
