2015 Hill Stakes Betting Odds: Complacent Opens Favourite

Despite a wide draw in a full field for Saturday’s Hill Stakes 2015 at Royal Randwick, the John O’Shea-trained Complacent has opened clear favourite in the early markets to win the weight-for-age feature on George Main Stakes Day.

The Authorized five-year-old wears the number one saddlecloth in the $200,000 Group 2 Ascend Sales Trophies Hill Stakes (2000m) on the weekend, Sam Clipperton booked to ride Godolphin’s last start Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes winner over the Randwick mile.

Clipperton had the ride in the Chelmsford and stays aboard Complacent who also won the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) over the same track and distance of his assignment this Saturday in elite level company as a three-year-old in 2013.

Complacent leads the latest Hill Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au at $3.40 despite a wide barrier 13 draw, the race still to run at a 16-starter capacity with the emergencies Magic Hurricane and Bohemian Lily both getting a start after the early withdrawal of Hawkspur and Kapour who run in Melbourne instead.

Despite the bumper line-up there are just three other horses under $10 to take out the Hill Stakes this year with the first of the spares getting a run, Magic Hurricane the second best fancied at $5.50.

Stablemate to the favourite, the fellow O’Shea-trained galloper has had two runs at Rosehill this time in with Magic Hurricane last seen winning the Listed Premier’s Cup (1800m) on August 29.

He has top Sydney-based hoop James McDonald aboard on Saturday and a gun barrier five draw giving him every chance of handling a tougher field this weekend.

The other two best fancied chances are market mover Who Shot Thebarman ($8.50 into $7.50) for Chris Waller and his stablemate Beaten Up ($9.50).

A proven two miler, Yamanin Vital seven-year-old Who Shot Thebarman was runner-up in the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) back in April before returning to the Randwick track first-up when seventh in the Chelmsford.

He will appreciate the extra metres this weekend and has won two of his past three runs over 2000m.

Beaten Up jumps from barrier eight with Glyn Schofield riding, the Beat Hollow eight-year-old crossing a nice third in The BMW to Hartnell over the mile and a half in the autumn with improvement to come off his Chelmsford eighth last start.

At more generous Hill Stakes odds are a host of other notable hopes with chances at scoring the upset including Waller’s defending champion Junoob ($10), the Robert Hickmott-trained last start Moonee Valley winner over a mile Chance To Dance ($12) and Gai Waterhouse’s O’Reilly mare Bohemian Lily ($14) out to improve on a first-up sixth at the track.
