2014 Epsom Handicap Betting Update – Royal Descent Eases

Odds on Chris Waller’s in-form mare Royal Descent have eased out in the Epsom Handicap 2014 betting markets for this afternoon with the five-year-old now co-favourite with Toydini to take out Super Saturday’s marquee event.

Earlier in the week Waller’s Redoute’s Choice mare, last seen running second behind stablemate Sacred Falls in the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) on September 20, sat top of the Ladbrokes.com.au markets for the $500,000 Group 1 The Star Epsom (1600m).

Having run second in all three of her spring starts this preparation, Royal Descent was at $4.40 to shake the runners-up tag and win her first race since the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) back in April last year.

She has since drifted out to $5 however with money coming for last year’s Epsom Handicap runner-up Toydini.

Now prepared by Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes, Bernardini gelding Toydini has firmed in from $6 to equal $5 favouritism with the addition of blinkers set to sharpen him up after a luckless eighth in the George Main last time out.

Also at $6 earlier in the week was another of Waller’s three Epsom Handicap hopes for 2014, He’s Your Man.

The French import is after his maiden Group 1 win and comes off a victory in the Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill from September 13.

He is another market mover now paying $5.50 with the Cape Cross gelding dropping from 56.5kg last time out to just 52.5kg today with Brazilian-born, Hong Kong-based jockey Joao Moreira booked for the light weight ride.

Waller’s third hope is then the reigning Epsom Handicap winner Boban who carried only 53kg to victory last year for the first of his now three Group 1 wins.

He is the 58kg top weight for this afternoon however as he looks to become the first back-to-back Epsom champ Desert War (2004-05).

The last start Makybe Diva Stakes fifth placegetter also has barrier one which is probably not suited to his get back style where he’s going to find plenty of traffic.

Still Boban has stayed steady at $7 and is the last of the four single figure hopes.

The market easer then out from $9 to $10 is Laser Hawk, Joe Pride’s last start George Main third placegetter dropping from 59kg to 53.5kg with Corey Brown to ride from barrier 12.

Just behind Laser Hawk at $11, in form $13 earlier in the week, is Team Hawkes’ other hope Ninth Legion coming off two thirds at Rosehill last month including behind one time Epsom favourite Rock Sturdy in the Group 2 Shannon Stakes (1500m) last Saturday.

Next best in the Epsom Handicap odds for this afternoon’s major are then Star Rolling (steady at $15) and Hooked ($17 out to $19).
