Kuro Leads 2015 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint Field & Betting

Joe Pride’s widely-drawn Kuro leads the Arrowfield 3YO Sprint 2015 betting markets for this weekend in Sydney despite the in-form colt having the outside barrier to overcome in the Randwick clash.

One of the key support races outside the four Group 1s on Day 2 of The Championships, this year’s $500,000 Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) runs as Randwick Race 5 at 1:55pm (AEDT) and features a final field of a dozen three-year-olds.

Drawn the widest is talented Denman colt Kuro who, despite the draw, sits top of the Arrowfield 3YO Sprint odds at a firming $3.20 through Ladbrokes.com.au.

Jockey Blake Shinn jumps back aboard the youngster having ridden him throughout a killer spring campaign that included back-to-back stakes wins at Randwick as well as a close third when just one and a half lengths off Brazen Beau in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington.

This time in Kuro has had the two runs when third to Nayeli in the Listed Fireball Quality (1100m) and then second to Sweet Idea in the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) when ridden by Hugh Bowman and Chad Schofield respectively.

Shinn returns to the saddle here however, Kuro coming off a smart winning barrier trial at the track from March 31.

The horse has a gun record at Randwick of two wins and a third from four starts, and the bookies are taking no chances with him even from the horror draw.

Three of the favourite’s 11 rivals join him on single figures in the Arrowfield Sprint betting markets at Ladbrokes this year including the market mover Earthquake in from $6.50 to $6.

The John O’Shea-trained former Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes winning filly jumps from barrier eight with the in-form James McDonald in the saddle as she shoots for first win since October last year in Melbourne.

The Exceed And Excel filly was last seen racing in tougher company at Moonee Valley under the lights on March 27 when fifth, beaten under three lengths, to Lucky Hussler in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m).

She has had three previous Randwick runs for a win and two thirds and is tipped to appreciate the return to Sydney and the drop back in class on the weekend.

Following closely and also under $10 are then Scissor Kick ($6.50) and Rubick ($7).

Paul Messara’s Redoute’s Choice colt Scissor Kick, runner-up to Hallowed Crown in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) last September, won the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) first-up at Rosehill in early February.

His only run since was a fifth to Golden Rose champ Hallowed Crown in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) on February 21, after which he was freshened up giving him freshness for Saturday’s return.

The Gerald Ryan-trained Rubick meanwhile comes off a seventh when beaten just under four lengths by Sweet Idea in the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) at Rosehill on March 21.

Before that the Encosta De Lago colt was third to Group 1 winner Miracles Of Life in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) at Randwick, his second run and first win at the track the Group 2 winner returns to this weekend.

Following closely on double figures but not without their claims for an upset Arrowfield 3YO Sprint result are then the likes of the Chris Waller-trained Coolmore Stud Stakes runner-up Delectation ($11) out wide in barrier 11 for Hugh Bowman, Peter Moody’s Sebring filly Bring Me The Maid ($10) returning to racing and last year’s Golden Slipper winner Mossfun ($12) to be ridden by Tommy Berry from gate 10.
