Magnifisio Firm Favourite in 2014 AJ Scahill Betting

10 classy horses will run in the Group 3 AJ Scahill Stakes (1400m) at Ascot Racecourse this Saturday, offering punters some great betting opportunities and chance to back a winner.

The $200,000 race is one of three Group three races running in support of the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m).

Just three of the 10 runners are offering single figure odds in the Ladbrokes.com.au betting market, led by Magnifisio at $2.20.

Magnifisio will get a good start to the 2014 AJ Scahill Stakes, jumping from barrier three with Chris Parnham in the saddle. The mare will also carry two kilograms less than her seven male rivals.

The Jim P Taylor-trained five-year-old is a strong contender after winning the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) last time out, beating top Melbourne-based horses Angelic Light and Moment Of Change to win the $750,000 race. On the back of a Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) and solid fourth place finish in the Group 3 Prince Of Wales Stakes (1200m), Magnifisio looks unstoppable.

However she does face some fierce competition in the AJ Scahill Stakes, including two other single figure hopefuls.

On the second line of betting is Watermans Bay ($4), who will have the help of champion hoop Tommy Berry to overcome a wide start from barrier eight. The Daniel Morton-trained gelding was a close second to Magnifisio in the Winterbottom Stakes last time out, finishing just a quarter of a length behind.

After winning the Listed Pinjarra Classic (1300m) as well as finishing second in both the Listed Cyril Flower Stakes (1200m) and Listed Bunbury Stakes (1400m), Watermans Bay travelled to Melbourne for a stint in the spring. The eight-year-old was unsuccessful in all three of his starts but returned to Perth in solid form.

Testamezzo ($5) rounds out the single figure hopefuls, jumping from barrier four with Peter Knuckley to ride. The Daniel Pearce-trained gelding is also coming via the Winterbottom Stakes where he finished just outside the placings in fourth. The four-year-old has won seven of his 13 career starts and placed in a further four, including running second in the Group 3 Colonel Reeves Stakes (1100m).

Grant WilliamsAmorino, who scored the inside run from barrier one, is currently available for the lucrative price of $13 while Listed Jungle Mist Classic (1200m) winner Antique Belle is sitting just outside the single digits at $11.
