2015 Widden Stakes Betting Update

Just ten two-year-old fillies remain in contention for the Group 2 Widden Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Saturday following the scratching of John O’Shea’s Calaverite.

The trainer will still be represented in the $150,000 race by Igraine, who is one of six single figure hopefuls in the Widden Stakes betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Gai Waterhouse’s Giulietta is the $3.60 favourite after winning the Tab Place Multi Plate (1100m) on debut earlier this month.

The filly jumped brilliantly to lead clearly in the early stages before steadying the tempo and travelling well in front. She dashed clear on passing the 300 metre mark and went on to score decisively with plenty in hand thanks to a two and a half length margin.

Giulietta is Waterhouse’s best $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) chance and will begin her preparation in the Widden Stakes. The filly will jump from barrier three with Christian Reith in the saddle.

She will face some tough competition in winning the 2015 Widden Stakes however, considering there are a further five runners offering single figure odds.

  • #6 Fireworks ($4.80)Gerald Ryan’s filly is second favourite to win the Widden Stakes after her comeback effort two weeks ago at Randwick. Fireworks stumbled out of the gates in the Hyland Race Colours Plate and was eight lengths from the leaders with 600 metres to go. She got to the outside, flashed late, and should have won given her efforts but settled for third place. The filly will jump from barrier six with Brenton Avdulla to ride.
  • #4 Igraine ($5.50) – John O’Shea’s remaining entry is third favourite after drawing ideally in barrier two with James McDonald as hoop. The filly was runner-up to stable mate Calaverite in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) back in October but with Calaverite scratched from the race, this is her time to shine.
  • #5 Tempt Me Not ($7.50) – the Bart & James Cummings-trained filly was runner-up to Salerno in the Vein Plate (1000m) last October before finishing second in a barrier trial last week. Champion hoop Tommy Berry will ride the filly from barrier eight.
  • #10 Lake Geneva ($8)Team Hawkes’ filly is making her debut in the Widden Stakes after winning a barrier trial by two lengths back in September. Lake Geneva will jump from barrier nine with Dwyane Dunn.
  • #9 Always Allison ($9.50)Chris Waller’s Always Allison is also making her debut on Saturday and despite starting from the widest gate is the market mover of the race after her price shortened from $11 to single figures following support from punters. Fans are clearly impressed by the filly’s two winning barrier trials this month.
