Following the removal of topweight I’ve Got The Looks from proceedings on Wednesday, just 14 runners remain in contention for Saturday’s Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic (1350m) at Ipswich Turf Club; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Champagne Cath is yet to find winning form over two starts this time, but has interestingly opened as and maintained status on the top line of 2015 Gai Waterhouse Classic betting with Ladbrokes.com.au; currently available at a quote of $4.80 for success.
Posting three wins and a further four minors through 15 career starts so far, Champagne Cath returned to the paddock after failing to fire and tenth in the Group 3 Triscay Stakes (1200m) on February 14th but ran on for a credible fourth in the Parklands Tavern Handicap (1400m) first-up this time on May 16th.
Having run on for sixth in the Listed Bright Shadow Quality (1200m) most recently on May 30th, Champagne Cath will need some luck in running from barrier 9 on Saturday but will carry only 54kgs.
Real Surreal is yet to herald much interest from punters in 2015 Gai Waterhouse Classic betting markets but as maintained status as sole occupant of the second line at generous $5 odds.
Stamping her claims as one to watch over a maiden racing campaign which delivered three wins and a minor over four starts, Real Surreal was transferred to the care of Team Hawkes for her 2014 campaign but has returned to Kelso Wood’s stables for 2015.
Having run on despite an early check for fourth in Bright Shadow Quality first-up a fortnight ago, the daughter of Real Saga is sure to have taken priceless condition from the hit-out and will receive a sweet run from barrier 3.
Currently figuring as the only other runner instilled at a quote of less-than $10 in 2015 Gai Waterhouse Classic betting markets, Fare Well will carry 54kgs, has been confirmed to be partnered by in-form hoop Jim Byrne and will leave from the central barrier 7.
A standout for Clarry Conners over a strong summer campaign, Fare Well ran fourth in each of the Listed Starlight Stakes (1100m) and Listed Razor Sharp Handicap (1200m); returning to the paddock after placing a credible fifth in the Group 3 Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) on January 9th.
Placing fifth in the Bright Shadow Quality first-up this time, the Exceed And Excel mare has the class to post a maiden career black type win in the 2015 Gai Waterhouse Classic.
