2014 Travel Associates Classic Betting Update

The Listed Travel Associates Classic (1200m) attracted a capacity field of 16 fillies and mares plus five emergencies on Wednesday, offering punters a variety of betting options and chance to back the winner.

However since the 2014 Travel Associates Classic final field was released, three horses have already been scratched from this Saturday’s race.

Tony Gollan and Matthew Dunn, who both had two runners in the race, have scratched one horse each due to wide barrier draws. Gollan’s Faith’n’courage drew barrier 19 as did Dunn’s Beach Babe in barrier 17, leaving the trainers one horses each. Gerald Ryan’s Command More, who was the fourth emergency, has also been withdrawn from the race.

Five of the remaining horses are offering single figure odds in the Travel Associates Classic betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by Brook Road at $3.

The Kris Lees-trained four-year-old mare will jump from barrier six with Jim Byrne in the saddle. She has finished in the placings in seven of her eight career starts, including three wins. This will be just the second black-type race for Brook Road, who was a fast-finishing runner-up in the Group 3 Nivison (1200m) on October 18 at Royal Randwick, a course which has proven very rewarding to her.

However she has a big field of rivals to beat home for victory in the Travel Associates Classic, including four other single figure hopefuls.

  • #10 Just A Girl ($6) – Chris Waller’s mare will jump from barrier 11 with Chris Munce to ride. She won a handicap over 1100m at Warwick Farm two starts ago, which is the shining light in a field of unplaced runs.
  • #8 Breakfast In Bed ($7.50) – the David Vandyke-trained mare is set to jump from barrier 12 with Michael Cahill in the saddle. The five-year-old will get her first start this campaign on Saturday but has performed well in two barrier trials at Randwick since October 31, finishing first and second.
  • #3 Tukiyo ($8) – Lacey Morrison’s five-year-old will get a good start from barrier seven with Damian Brown serving as hoop. The mare is a last start winner after scoring a fillies and mares handicap over 1100m at the Gold Coast on November 15.
  • #19 Tarloshan ($8)Graeme Bond’s mare is still an emergency, moving up from third to first after the aforementioned scratchings, but that hasn’t stopped her from offering single figure odds to not only make it into the race but win it. If she makes it onto the field, Tarloshan will jump from barrier 13 with Jason Taylor as hoop. She has won two of her last three starts and finished second in the third so has good form behind her.

With so many runners, there is every chance a horse offering lucrative double digit odds will cause an upset and win the race. Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) winner Tinto is available for a desirable $15.
