A talented and capacity field of 16 has been confirmed for Saturday’s featured Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) on the Gold Coast; offering punters exceptional value from a betting perspective and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Three-year-old Najoom is yet to be confirmed as a starter in the 2015 Tattersall’s Tiara but has opened as maintained status as outright $3.90 favourite for success in betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
Yet to finish outside the first three in seven career starts so far, Najoom booked a ticket north for the Brisbane Winter Carnival with three-consecutive wins in minor Sydney sprints upon resuming this time.
Placing a close second in the Cal Rei BM75 (1200m) on April 23rd, the Northern Meteor filly charged home to win the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) on May 9th before repeating the dose in the Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) most recently on May 23rd.
Allocated barrier 12, Najoom will carry just 55.5kgs should she be drawn into the 2015 Tattersall’s Tiara field.
Catkins has returned to racing in typically brilliant form this time and currently rates as outright $4.40 second-favourite in 2015 Tattersall’s Tiara betting markets.
Unlucky yet to post a win at the highest level, the daughter of Dubawi returned this year for consecutive wins in the Group 2 Breeders’ Classic (1200m) and Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m); running second in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) before returning to winning form in the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m).
Ending his autumn campaign second in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m), Catkins returned following a brief freshen-up for second in the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1350m) and is likely to receive the run of the race in the Tatt’s Tiara from barrier 3, with Hugh Bowman aboard.
Srikandi is yet to herald much attention in 2015 Tattersall’s Tiara betting markets and while interestingly drifting, remains third-favourite at a generous quote of $4.60 for success.
The standout over the 2014 Brisbane Winter, Srikandi won each of the Listed Silk Stocking (1200m), Listed Juanmo Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) on her way to a credible third in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1350m).
Returning this time for success in the Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m) on the Gold Coast, Srikandi was unable to figure in her next two starts but responded in the best way possible when taking out the Stradbroke Handicap a fortnight ago.
The daughter of Dubawi will have to overcome the outsider draw but is more than worth consideration at current 2015 Tattersall’s Tiara odds.
