Racing Minister’s 2.y.o Classic Betting Update

A talented field of 15 two-year-olds has been confirmed for Saturday’s $150,000 Racing Minister’s 2.y.o Classic (1200m) on the Sunshine Coast, offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Having stamped his claims as a serious racing contender over a short three start career so far, classy filly Pepperano has opened as and maintained status as clear favourite in Racing Minister’s 2.y.o Classic betting markets; cutting in from opening odds of $2.80 for success to current register at $2.50 market mover with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Debuting with a comfortable two-and-a-half length victory in the Capture The Feeling Handicap (1110m) on November 22nd, Pepperano was unlucky to be blocked for a run and hampered late in her second start, finishing fourth in the Magic Millions 2.y.o Plate (1050m) at Toowoomba on December 31st.

Jumping from the gates only fairly in last weekend’s featured Magic Millions 2.y.o Guineas (1200m), the Court Command filly was forced wide and settled close to the race’s leaders, challenging strongly over the final 300m to finish just over half a length off champion Le Chef in second.

Allocated the ideal barrier 6, Pepperano has been charged with carrying just 55kgs in the Racing Minister’s 2.y.o Classic and is more than worth consideration for a bet at current odds.

While yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of wagers for success in 2015 Racing Minister’s Classic betting markets, Mishani Honcho has maintained position on the second line at a quote of $5.

Finishing worse than second just once over his five start career to date, the son of Jet Spur won the Toxfree Plate (900m) by six lengths on debut, following up the impressive effort second to Wicked Intent in the Breakfast Creek Hotel Handicap (1050m) on November 29th.

Returning to the winner’s circle in the Iveco Handicap (1200m) at Doomben on December 6th, Mishani Honcho appeared out of sorts when beating only a handful of runners home in a minor over 1110m on December 20th but responded in the best way possible when making a successful transition to black type racing in taking out the Group 3 McLachlan Stakes (1200m) last time out on December 20th.

Allocated a race-high 57kgs and forced to overcome the wide and awkward barrier 15, Real Good surprisingly figures as sole occupant of the third line of betting at odds of $6.50 for success in the Racing Minister’s 2.y.o Classic.

Running second in a strong Sunshine Coast barrier trial prior to his competitive debut, Real Good placed second to Saga Of The Storm in the Brisbane Marriot Hotel Handicap (1110m) on December 20th before finishing only a length in the red of Magic Millions Guineas champion Le Chef in the First National Handicap (1200m) on January 3rd.

Punters may find value in adding Real Good as a selection in a trifecta or quinella bet this weekend, taking advantage of generous $2.45 odds to finish in the minors.
