Having returned to racing in typically smart form this time in, classy mare Catkins has opened as and maintained status as clear favourite for success in Golden Pendant betting markets, currently available at $1.55 odds with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Securing an impressive total of 12 wins and seven minor places from just 24 competitive starts so far, Catkins failed to finish outside the places over six impressive appearances over the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival, winning both the Group 3 How Now Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Eliza Park International Stakes (1600m) and finishing second to classy stable mate Red Tracer in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) most notably.

Returning in 2014 in similarly devastating form, the Dubawi mare won both of the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m) and Group 3 Wiggle Stakes (1400m) before finishing third in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m).

Returning to the winner’s circle in the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) on April 5th, Catkins charged home to take out the Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) first-up on September 13th and appears primed for continued success in the Golden Pendant from barrier 6.

Yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of wagers for success in Golden Pendant betting markets, Arabian Gold has maintained status as sole occupant of the second line and offers punters great value for money at current $6.50 odds.

Claiming eight wins and three minors from her 18 competitive starts so far, Arabian Gold secured several impressive results over the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival but without doubt found peak condition over the late autumn and winter of this year; winning each of the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m), Group 3 Frank Packer Plate (200m) and Group 2 The Roses (2000m) before finishing a close second in the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) most recently.

Allocated the ideal barrier 2, Arabian Gold has been confirmed to be partnered by leading jockey Blake Shinn and is more than worth consideration for a Golden Pendant bet at current odds this weekend.

Also yet to experience much attention from punters over early days of Golden Pendant betting, Neena Rock has opened as and maintained status as third favourite for success on Saturday, currently available at generous odds of $11.

Securing four wins and seven minor places from just 15 competitive starts so far, Neena Rock began her racing career under the guidance of kiwi trainer Warren Bolton before transferring to the care of John Sargent at the conclusion of her autumn prep.

Securing several impressive results, including a comfortable win in the Group 3 Cuddle Stakes (1600m) on March 15th, the Fastnet Rock mare ran on for third in the Sheraco Stakes in her maiden Australian appearance on September 13th and is appears primed for a strong spring carnival.
