2015 Reisling Stakes Betting Tips

Nine two-year-old fillies will line-up in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) at Randwick this Saturday, testing their ability over the trip before the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) on March 21.

Five of the nine runners are paying single figure odds in the betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by firm favourite English at $2.80.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained filly is lightly run compared to the majority of her rivals with just one career start to her name, however she’s one of only three last start runners on the field after her impressive maiden win on debut earlier this month.

English will jump from barrier three with Blake Shinn in the saddle.

Rounding out the single figure betting is Ottoman ($4.80), Fireworks ($6), Stay With Me ($7), and Calaverite ($9.50) while the remaining four runners are all well-priced between $10 and $18.

Two-year-old races can be hard to pick so check out our betting tips for the 2015 Reisling Stakes.


#1 Fireworks ($16)

Gerald Ryan’s two-year-old filly isn’t actually nominated for the 2015 Golden Slipper but a win in the Reisling Stakes will force owner John Camilleri to pay the $150,000 late entry fee for the world’s richest juvenile race in two weeks. The Slipper was the furthest thing from Ryan’s mind when Fireworks debuted in December but a strong win in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) began her on a tentative path. The filly made a late surge in the race at the end of January and just grabbed her rivals on the line. She has now finished in the first three in all three of her career starts and will jump from barrier six with Brenton Avdulla to ride on Saturday.


#7 Giulietta ($12)

Giulietta is one of two fillies saddled by Waterhouse in the Reisling Stakes and is a lucrative bet for punters at odds of $12 to win or $3.50 to place. She decisively won her maiden on debut on January 3 but the rain-affected track in the Widden Stakes proved too much. While the filly led for a while into the straight, she couldn’t keep going and finished sixth. Giulietta then ran in the Listed Lonhro Plate (1100m) two weeks later, finishing just one length away from winner Haptic in fourth place. The filly will jump from barrier five with Tim Clark to ride.


#9 English ($2.80)

Waterhouse’s other runner, English, is the market favourite after an impressive debut win at Kembla Grange on January 31, which the filly won by three and a half lengths. It was the only start for the filly but she has gone on to win a barrier trial by a whopping five and a half lengths. She jumped well and showed good speed from a wide draw before racing on pace but getting trapped very deep. She cornered nicely and took the leader, winning with ease in a super effort.
