2015 Belmont Sprint Odds: Luckygray Out

Sure-to-be favourite Luckygray is an early scratching from Saturday’s Belmont Sprint 2015 in Perth leaving a final field of only eight sprinters to face off in the weight-for-age showdown this weekend.

Now prepared by Trevor Andrews, multiple Group 1 hero Luckygray was the top rated runner in the $150,000 Group 3 Belmont Sprint (1400m) and would have been gunning for back-to-back wins this time in after a first-up victory in the Group 3 Roma Cup (1200m) at the same track on May 16.

With the $2.7 million earning Bradbury’s Luck seven-year-old scratched from Belmont Race 7 at 4:12pm (local time) on Saturday however it has become a far more open field and betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au for the latest Group race in WA.

New favourite in the Belmont Sprint odds paying $2.60 to take it out is the Darren McAuliffe-trained Trade Fair mare Fuchsia Bandana.

The four-year-old ran fifth in both the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) and Group 1 Kingston Town Stakes (1800m) at Ascot in late spring – early summer last year before being turned out for a spell.

She returned a fortnight ago running three-quarters of a length away third to Luckygray in the Roma Cup, the form line to follow heading into this weekend’s Belmont Sprint.

Fuchsia Bandana jumped from barrier one in the Roma Cup with jockey Ben Kennedy in the saddle but second-up she has gate four, Kennedy retaining the ride.

Three other Belmont Sprint hopes are also under double figures to win including the $3.80 second pick Dawn Approach drawn one wider than the top fancy in barrier six.

Takahide Ikenushi has the ride on Vaughn Sigley’s in-form Statue Of Liberty four-year-old, the gelding having run top three in his four most recent runs all in black type company around WA.

Two back he beat home Shining Knight in the Listed Northam Toyota Stakes (1100m) before a second in the Roma Cup form the same barrier he is drawn this weekend.

Occupying the third line of Belmont Sprint betting at $5 is then the aforementioned Northam Stakes runner-up Shining Knight who Peter Hall will ride, the Grant Williams-trained Blackfriars six-year-old last seen running fifth in the Roma Cup when beaten three and three-quarter lengths.

Rounding out the single figure hopes in the Belmont Sprint 2015 is then Balmont Girl at $6 who Patrick Carbery rides from the outside alley first-up.

Paula Wagg’s Balmont mare hasn’t raced since a seventh when beaten over seven lengths by the winner Real Love in the Group 2 Perth Cup (2400m) on New Year’s Day, and while she’s yet to win first-up, she is far from a write off having won two of her past five starts over Saturday’s distance.

The Belmont Sprint betting market mover meanwhile is Brother Patrick in from $15 to $14 to score an upset, the Justin Warwick-trained veteran Anabaa eight-year-old shooting for his third straight win at the track following back-to-back mile wins in Benchmark 72+ handicaps at Belmont Park this month.

The latest of those was only last Saturday when Brother Patrick beat home Willow Bridge by half a length after jumping from the outside alley (13 of 13), Saturday’s barrier four (into three) draw a big plus for the step up to black type company.
