2015 Australian Guineas Odds Update: Kermadec Firming Favourite

Chris Waller’s much-hyped Sydney raider Kermadec continues to firm in the Australian Guineas 2015 betting markets ahead of his second Melbourne run this afternoon at Flemington Racecourse.

There are three early scratchings from the $500,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m), most notably Neville Parnham’s injured Perth raider Rommel who was to back-up from a Group 3 Zeditave Stakes (1200m) win at Caulfield on February 28.

Sitting top of the Australian Guineas odds meanwhile at $3.30, in from $3.70, is Waller’s progressive Teofilo colt Kermadec.

He has had two runs this time in, most recently crossing under half a length away third to Hallowed Crown in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m).

Instead of facing off against his last start conqueror in Sydney’s $600,000 Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) this afternoon, Waller and connections instead made the decision to head south and target the Australian Guineas.

Kermadec has had one previous Victorian run back on Derby Day last November when winning the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) over the same track and distance he’s fancied to win the Group 1 over this afternoon.

Just three of his rivals are also under double figures in the latest Australian Guineas markets with Alpine Eagle ($6), Wandjina in from $9.50 to $7.50 and the market mover Stratum Star.

Alpine Eagle is after his fourth straight win at just his sixth start and hasn’t moved much in the market at all, Tony McEvoy’s Adelaide-based High Chaparral colt coming off a narrow Group 2 Autumn Classic (1800m) victory from the end of last month at Caulfield.

Gai Waterhouse’s Snitzel colt Wandjina was third behind today’s Randwick Guineas favourite Shooting To Win in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) during the spring, and comes off a first-up victory at Flemington in the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m).

Stratum Star meanwhile is a super consistent galloper from the stables of Darren Weir, Brad Rawiller to ride the Stratum colt form a nice barrier four draw.

Second to Petrology in the Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) over the mile last November, he has had two runs this time in including his third when just over a length off Wandjina in the CS Hayes Stakes on February 21.

Sandown Guineas winner Petrology meanwhile remains a steady $10 Australian Guineas hope with the inside run from barrier one for jockey Nicholas Hall, the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Fastnet Rock colt out to improve on a last start ninth to Dissident in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield last month.

The other notable market movers are then Barry Campbell’s multiple stakes winning Tasmanian visitor Admiral ($17 into $15) and the Robert Smerdon-trained filly Fontein Ruby ($18 into $13) coming off a second in the Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m).
