Bernborough Handicap 2014 Odds: Top Three Hard to Split

The bookies are having a hard time separating the top three chances in Wednesday night’s 2014 Bernborough Handicap betting markets for the Toowoomba clash on New Year’s Eve.

Of the dozen milers making up the final field for this year’s $175,000 Listed City Of Toowoomba / Toowoomba Regional Council Bernborough Handicap (1625m) three are at single figures to win paying between $3 and $3.80 through

Narrow favourite is the Robert Heathcote-trained top weight Hopfgarten ($3) drawn in barrier six for jockey Damian Browne to ride on 59kg.

Seeing the Toowoomba track for the first time the up-and-coming Mossman four-year-old was last seen winning the Listed Brisbane Handicap (1600m) on December 13 at Doomben, albeit carrying three kilos less on 56kg.

Hot on his heels in the Bernborough Handicap odds at $3.60 is then the widely-drawn Tarloshan out in barrier 12 for New Zealand trainer Graeme Boyd.

A five-year-old daughter of Istidaad, the consistent mare has won five of her nine career starts so far including her lead-up run when beating home a decent field by a minimum 1.5 lengths in the Listed Just Now Handicap (1350m).

She had the 54kg minimum on her back that day and gets in on the same light weight for Wednesday night’s clash where she goes up to the mile for the first time since a second to Forever Crazy at Royal Randwick back in July.

Third favourite at $3.80 for the win is then the rails-drawn Tinto for local trainer Rex Lipp.

The Red Dazzler mare is already a proven Group 1 winner following her super-charged winter in Brisbane that saw her run second to Arabian Gold in the Group 2 The Roses (2000m) before her Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm in May.

Her two runs this time in have also been promising with a first-up second in the Listed Tattersall’s Classic (1200m) followed by a third to fellow Bernborough Handicap fancy Tarloshan in the Just Now.

Outside the dominant three the next best for an upset is Time To Plunder ($12) set to get a nice run from barrier two with Larry Cassidy in the saddle.

Liam Birchley’s Brisbane-based Holy Roman Emperor gelding won the Listed Keith Noud Handicap (1200m) back in November before being beaten into seventh and then sixth by Big Money in the Group 3 George Moore Stakes (1200m) and Listed Lough Neagh Stakes (1350m) at Doomben during December.

The other chances under $20 are then Barry Baldwin’s last start Doomben winner Flying Home ($17), in-form local gelding Sigmund ($18) for Ben Currie, its stablemate Great Game ($18) who like the former comes off a win at Ipswich and the Kevin Kemp-trained Under The Leaner ($18).
