2014 Winterbottom Stakes Betting Update

13 talented sprinters are set to contest the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Ascot this Saturday, offering punters a variety of betting options.

A mix of home talent plus horses that made the trek to Perth from the eastern states will race in the $750,000 race on Super Saturday, with the fixed-price odds shifting since the barrier draw was released on Wednesday morning.

There are four single figure hopefuls in the betting market, which continues to be led by Angelic Light at $3 after the mare drew well in barrier five.

Trainer Robbie Griffiths couldn’t be happier with the draw, which has brought home four winners since 1983, the last of which was Hadabeclorka in 2010.

Angelic Light returned to the racing scene in August after an absence of more than one year. He finished third in the Listed Carlyon Stakes (1000m) before winning the Group 2 McEwen Stakes (1000m) the following month. She missed out on a win in the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1200m) by less than one length before managing to finish second in the Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) despite being badly checked not long after the start.

All in all the mare had a very successful spring campaign but she faces some tough competition in the 2014 Winterbottom Stakes, including three other single figure hopefuls.

  • #1 Moment Of Change ($4.40) – the six-year-old gelding is on the second line of the betting despite a disappointing spring campaign. Peter Moody is sending Moment Of Change to Perth for the second time after he missed out on the 2013 Winterbottom Stakes win by just a nose. He’ll get a much better jump this year, into barrier four from nine, but didn’t enjoy as successful a lead-in campaign as he did before last year’s race.
  • #2 Sidestep ($6) – is the third and final eastern trained horse offering single figure odds at this stage. The John O’Shea-trained horse is the market mover of the field, seeing his price shorten from $7 into $6 after drawing an ideal barrier two, which has brought home four winners in the last 30 years.
  • #12 Magnifisio ($8)Jim P Taylor’s mare is the only local runner offering single digit odds at the moment after winning the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) on November 8 which followed a fourth place finish in the Group 3 Prince Of Wales Stakes (1200m). He has the best record of any of the locally-trained horses but will need to overcome a wide start from barrier 11, which has only seen two winners since 1983.

Of course the 2014 Winterbottom Stakes could just as easily be won by one of the nine runners offering lucrative double figure odds, including Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m) winner Bel Sprinter ($12) or Group 3 Colonel Reeves Stakes (1100m) winner Shining Knight ($11).

Listed Pinjarra Classic (1300m) winner Watermans Bay is returning home after a season in Melbourne. His odds got as low as $21 but he since drifted out to $41.

Adam Durrant’s Ysmael has also seen his price drift significantly, out from $26 to his current odds of $51.

This Saturday marks the beginning of the Perth Summer Racing Carnival. Make sure it’s one you remember by placing your 2014 Winterbottom Stakes bets with Ladbrokes.com.au.
