2014 Roman Consul Stakes Odds: Four at Single Figures

After attracting just six final acceptors the betting market for Saturday’s Roman Consul Stakes 2014 is an open affair with four under double figures to win the Epsom Handicap Day showdown at Randwick.

Jumping at 2:05pm as the fourth race on the Sydney program, this year’s $175,000 Group 2 Sydney City Toyota Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) field and betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au are led by the Bart & James Cummings-trained Hallowed Crown.

Already a Group 1 winner thanks to a narrow last start victory in the Golden Rose Stakes, the Street Sense colt is undefeated in four career runs to date and pays $2.15 to keep that flawless record intact on Saturday.

It’s a drop back in distance for the favourite, but the 1200m is where Team Cummings are looking at keeping Hallowed Crown as he heads towards a run in the $500,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) in Melbourne on Victoria Derby Day.

The three other single figure hopes out to score an upset Roman Consul Stakes result are then:

  • #3 Brazen Beau ($3.90) – Early money coming in for Chris Waller’s Group 1 placegetter who has firmed from an opening price of $4. Was runner-up to Almalad in the JJ Atkins last season, the Gai Waterhouse-trained winner of that race holding the form with a Stutt Stakes win last weekend and a Cox Plate target. Brazen Beau returned on September 13 here at Flemington for a fifth in the Danehill Stakes and will be improving on that.
  • #2 Time For War ($5.50) – First-up run for Gerald Ryan’s Snitzel colt who won the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes in Sydney and the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes in Doomben last season. Latest run was a JJ Atkins sixth on June 7 but first-up over this distance looks good as he’s undefeated when coming off a spell (2-2-0-0).
  • #4 Nostradamus ($7) – Team Hawkes-trained colt won the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes first-up before two unplaced runs behind Saturday’s favourite Hallowed Crown including a Golden Rose fifth when only two lengths off the winner. Should be sharper over this distance.

Rounding out the markets are then Waller’s other runner Delecation ($10) coming off a first-up fourth to Kuro in the Listed Heritage Stakes (1100m) here a fortnight ago, and the second hope for Ryan Klammer ($14) with the rails run from barrier and coming off a Heritage Stakes third.
