A talented and capacity field of 14, including ten Group 1 winners was confirmed for this afternoon’s featured Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick, however this morning’s scratching of talented mare and clear race favourite First Seal has led to even greater value from a betting perspective.
Having stamped her claims as one to watch as a three-year-old through the 2014 spring and recent Sydney Autumn Carnival, First Seal continued to cut in 2015 Warwick Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au over the last few days, but was scratched from the race after it was discovered she was harbouring a hoof abscess.
Doncaster Mile champion Kermadec has reportedly taken huge benefit from his time away from racing, and has cut into outright favouritism in 2015 Warwick Stakes betting markets at current $4.60 odds as a result.
Posting three wins and as many minors through only eight career starts so far, Kermadec returned this year for a credible fourth in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) on February 7th, but arguably stamped himself as a serious autumn contender when third in the talent-rich Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) a fortnight later.
Unlucky to be blocked for a run and fourth in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) on March 7th, the Teofilo entire continued to impress when third amongst open company in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) on March 21st before producing a monumental turn of foot to take out the featured Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on Day 1 of The Championships.
Burbero, Royal Descent and It’s Somewhat have all experienced notable attention from punters in 2015 Warwick Stakes betting markets; cutting in from various quotes to currently share the second line at generous $5.50 odds each.
A standout performer for Bjorn Baker through recent seasons, Burbero has found exceptional form leading into the 2015 Warwick Stakes having run second in the July Sprint (1100m) and won the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m) a fortnight ago.
A strong and consistent performer and noted first-up performer, Royal Descent will leave from the ideal barrier 3 with Hugh Bowman aboard in this afternoon’s Warwick Stakes.
One of two chances for Godolphin Australia in the Warwick Stakes, It’s Somewhat won the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m) first-up in Autumn and has been confirmed to be partnered by James McDonald this afternoon.
French import and Doomben Cup winner Pornichet ($6.50) interestingly figures as the only other runner currently available at Warwick Stakes odds of less-than $10, while Messene ($10) and Hawkspur ($41) are both worth consideration at double figure quotes.
