2014 Sandown Guineas Betting Update

The Sandown Guineas is one of six Group races that make up Zipping Classic Day, which is the final leg of the 2014 Spring Racing Carnival. Four of the 13 horses are offering single figure odds in the betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by firm favourite Stratum Star at $2.80.

The Darren Weir-trained colt has been in fantastic form this season, finishing in the first three from all six of his starts. This is a big turnaround for the three-year-old, who finished end of the field in his first four starts at the beginning of the year.

Stratum Star enjoyed back-to-back wins in the Listed Yellowglen Vintage Stakes (1400m) and Listed Crown Lager Stakes (1400m) during October before a fast finishing second placing in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) last time out. He was right there punching the breeze all the way and tried so hard to the line, but was beaten just a beck by Kermadec.

He will enjoy an inside run from barrier two in the 2014 Sandown Guineas with champion hoop Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle. However his win isn’t a sure thing, seeing as he faces 12 talented rivals including three other runners offering single figure odds.

  • #9 Rekindled Power ($3.80) – the Paul Messara-trained colt is a close second favourite to win the Sandown Guineas after scoring his maiden victory on October 29 at Bendigo. The lightly raced three-year-old will make just his fourth career start and first at Group level of racing. He is untested over the mile but his 3½ length victory last time out has bookies tipping him to do well. Will once again jump from barrier 10 with Dwayne Dunn, the same conditions he ran under at Bendigo.
  • #4 Lord Aspen ($4.80) – this unstoppable gelding has won all four of his career starts as well as three barrier trials so is in great form ahead of the race. He won the Listed Hilton Hotels & Resorts Stakes (1400m) last Saturday, which was his first black-type race. Will jump from the middle of the field in barrier six with regular jockey Matthew Neilson.
  • #7 Dual Castle ($8) – is the final single figure hopeful in the fixed odds betting market. The Peter Moody-trained gelding will enjoy the inside run from barrier one with Daniel Stackhouse in the saddle. He has only recorded one win but finished third last time out to Lord Aspen in the Hilton Stakes.

The John O’Shea-trained Careless has seen a lot of money coming in for him in the betting market. The market mover has seen his price shorten from $15 to $10 and he is now on the cusp of single figure odds.

The three-year-old has yet to record a win from his ten career starts but has placed in three of his last four starts including the Listed Gothic Stakes (1400m) on October 18. The Exceed And Excel colt is one of the most experienced runners on the field, running the Group 1 J.J. Atkins Stakes (1600m) in June in which he was just 1½ lengths off the winner.

If any of these runners have caught your attention, make sure you back them at Ladbrokes.com.au today.

Saturday is the final day of the spring racing carnival for another year, make sure you end it on a high. Simply deposit $25 at Ladbrokes.com.au and you’ll earn $75 worth of bonus bets – that’s a total of $100 to use at your decision on Zipping Classic Day.
