2015 Emancipation Stakes Betting: Catkins Odds-On

Chris Waller’s brilliant mare Catkins has opened deserving and unsurprising odds-on favourite to win the Emancipation Stakes 2015 at Rosehill Racecourse this weekend.

The talented daughter of Dubai is one of an 11 remaining fillies and mares left in the mix for Saturday’s $175,000 Group 2 Ascend Sales Trophies Emancipation Stakes (1500m) on The BMW Day following the early scratching of #2 Dear Demi who had the outside barrier.

Catkins meanwhile is also drawn wide in barrier 10 for star Sydney hoop James McDonald who replaces Jim Cassidy aboard the five-year-old.

Third to Bonaria in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) in Melbourne to see out her spring last prep, Catkins won back-to-back Group 2s at Rosehill to kick off her autumn including the Millie Fox Stakes over 1300m last month.

Her latest run was then at Randwick on March 7 in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) where she was far from disgraced crossing a half-length away second to Cosmic Endeavour.

With no Cosmic Endeavour in the mix on Saturday, and a drop back in class, Catkins looks hard to beat paying $1.85 at Ladbrokes.com.au to win the Emancipation Stakes even from the wide alley.

There are just two other single-figure hopes in the latest Emancipation Stakes odds with the flying Madam Gangster ($8.50) after her fifth win on the trot and the nicely-drawn Mahara ($9.50) in barrier three.

Lee & Shannon Hope’s Seymour-based Al Maher mare makes a raid on Sydney on Saturday, the in-form four-year-old coming off a first-up Flemington win in the Group 3 Tressady Stakes (1400m) earlier this month.

Before that she won three straight during the summer in non black-type company, the progressive mare tipped for big things this time in start on Saturday in another class test.

Hussonet five-year-old Mahara meanwhile is one of two in the race for father-and-son training duo Peter & Paul Snowden.

She has the gun draw with jockey Blake Shinn booked for the ride.

A Group 3 winner, Mahara was up in Group 1 class last start on March 14 at the track in the Coolmore Classic (1500m) but failed to make an impression when 11th to Plucky Belle.

Still there was under four lengths separating her and the winner that day so in easier company, Catkins aside, she should be improving.

Outside of the hopes under $10 are some nice value runners with genuine claims for an Emancipation Stakes upset.

Included in this list are the likes of My Sabeel ($12) and Gypsy Diamond ($13) drawn in barriers two and one respectively.

Tim Clark rides Kevin Moses’s veteran Savabeel seven-year-old My Sabeel who ran third in the Triscay Stakes three back and was last seen crossing only one and a half lengths off Griante when fourth in the Group 3 Wenona Girl Handicap (1200m) three weeks back.

Not A Single Doubt four-year-old Gypsy Diamond meanwhile also ran fourth in her lead-up run when 1.6 lengths off Laser Hawk in the Group 3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (1400m) on March 18.
