Real Impact Leads Latest 2015 Doncaster Mile Odds

In-form Japanese raider Real Impact leads the latest pre-field Doncaster Mile 2015 odds for the feature race of The Championships this Saturday, the nicely-weighted veteran chasing back-to-back Group 1 wins down under.

There are still officially 79 nominees for the $3 million Group 1 The Star Doncaster Mile (1600m) this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, the handicap classic one of four elite levels on the Royal Randwick race card on the weekend.

Sitting equal first on the latest Doncaster Mile ballot thanks to a narrow first-up victory in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill on March 21 is the Noriyuki Hori-trained Deep Impact stallion Real Impact.

The seven-year-old debuted down under with his victory over Criterion in the George Ryder last time out and is now the $6 top fancy in the futures Doncaster Mile odds at Ladbrokes.com.au to win again this weekend.

A seven-year-old hasn’t won a Doncaster Mile however since the Gai Waterhouse-trained Pharaoh scored his second 20 years ago back in 1995.

Vision And Power (2009) meanwhile was the last horse to complete the George Ryder Stakes – Doncaster Mile double in a single season, and with 55kg on his back Real Impact looks a credible chance to be the next.

There are then three other single figure hopes in the Doncaster Mile betting markets, set to firm with the release of the final field and barrier draw on Tuesday.

The lightly-weighted James & Bart Cummings-trained three-year-old Hallowed Crown and four-year-old Pornichet are the equal $8 second elects sitting just ahead of Chris Waller’s top fancy Kermadec ($9).

Also nominated for the $2 million Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) on Saturday, Street Sense colt Hallowed Crown is another one of the six horses sitting number one on the Doncaster Mile order of entry.

He will get in on just 52kg, with a 50kg minimum, and is out to become the fifth three-year-old Doncaster Mile winner in the past 20 years.

Hallowed Crown boasts a tidy record of six wins from eight starts to date, including two previous Group 1s thanks to his victories in last year’s Golden Rose and the Randwick Guineas over this track and distance two back.

Following his Randwick Guineas triumph he raced over the 2000m in the Rosehill Guineas but could only manage to run third, the drop back to the mile at Randwick where he has won two from three to date to suit on the weekend.

Equal second favourite Pornichet meanwhile is allocated 51kg and earned his call-up from trainer Gai Waterhouse who boasts seven previous Doncaster Mile victories after a win last weekend.

The bookies are taking no chances with the four-year-old French import who returned to form with his easy two length Group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes (2000m) win at Rosehill last Saturday giving him just seven days between runs going into the Derby.

Sydney’s premier trainer Waller has won the past two Doncaster Miles with Sacred Falls (2013-14) and his best chance of making it three on the trot, and five wins in the race in total, is 50kg light weight Kermadec.

The Teofilo colt comes via two solid Group 1 efforts, the first a being a fourth at Flemington in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) and then his third when only two lengths off Real Impact in the George Ryder.

Also high up the Doncaster Mile markets at this stage of betting are the likes of the John O’Shea-trained Randwick Guineas runner-up Sweynesse ($11), Waller’s 2014 Doncaster Mile runner-up Royal Descent ($13) and Japan’s World Ace ($13) looking to atone for his 11th in the George Ryder.

The official 2015 Doncaster Mile final acceptances close at 9am (AEDT) tomorrow followed by the barrier draw so stay tuned.

Before then get in on the juicy markets open on the classic now at Ladbrokes.com.au – home of the famous $250 free bet bonus offer for new depositing players this autumn!
