San Domenico Stakes Tips and Betting

A talent-rich eight race card has been confirmed to run at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday; undoubtedly highlighted by the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m), which will see some of the Spring Carnival’s most exciting three-year-old prospects return to competition.

Vancouver more than stamped himself as the standout of his age group through the recent Sydney Autumn Carnival, and remains $2.40 favourite in 2015 San Domenico Stakes betting markets at ahead of Redzel ($4.40), Japonisme ($5.50) and King’s Troop ($6.50).

Will Vancouver continue his undefeated run through the 2015 San Domenico Stakes, or will one of his talented rivals post a huge upset?


Vancouver ($2.40)

Yet to taste anything but success through his impressive four start career, Vancouver remains favourite in early betting markets for nearly every major three-year-old race this season and is reportedly in great condition ahead of his San Domenico Stakes return. Debuting for success in the Listed NSW Thoroughbred Breeders Plate (1000m) last October, the son of Medaglia D’oro returned this year for an impressive win in the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) in January. Progressing to near-four length win in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m), Vancouver capped the impressive campaign with success in the major Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m). While charged with overcoming a race-high 60kgs, Tommy Berry has been confirmed to take the ride on Vancouver on Saturday.


Headwater ($9.50)

Headwater was a strong and largely consistent performer for Team Hawkes through autumn, and offers particularly good value for money at current $9.50 odds to win the 2015 San Domenico Stakes or $2.55 to finish in the first three. Taking out his first two starts, including the Group 2 Silver Slipper (1100m) on February 21st, the Exceed And Excel colt was disappointing when fading late for third in the Todman Stakes but returned to the paddock following a competitive performance for fifth in the Golden Slipper. Blake Shinn has been confirmed to take the ride on Headwater on Saturday, and is confident he can partnered the three-year-old to success.


Haptic ($7.50)

Haptic is one of a number of talented three-year-olds in work for John O’Shea and Godolphin this time, and is a great chance of finishing in the 2015 San Domenico Stakes first three after drawing the ideal barrier 3. Stamping his claims as one to watch when beating a smart field to the line in the Listed Lonhro Plate (1100m) on February 14th, Haptic was unable to match the late pace in the Golden Slipper last time out but has reportedly taken huge benefit from his time in the paddock.
