Catkins Odds-On in Golden Pendant 2015 Betting Markets

Chris Waller’s super consistent grey mare Catkins is the odds-on favourite for the feature race in Sydney this weekend, the six-year-old seriously well supported to take out the 2015 Golden Pendant against her own kind at Rosehill Gardens.

Only eight fillies and mares are engaged for this year’s $400,000 Group 2 Ronald McDonald House Westmead Golden Pendant (1400m), due to run as Sydney Race 6 at 3:45pm (AEST) on Saturday, but there’s a host of talent in the line-up.

Dominating the Golden Pendant odds at is Waller’s six-year-old daughter of Dubawi Catkins who currently pays a firming $1.55 to go one better than her second in the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival feature 12 months ago.

She was around six dollars first-up on September 12 while the odds are nowhere near that for her next run, she really is very hard to bet against getting in well under the weight scale here.

Catkins won the Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) first-up at Rosehill and now shoots for her 10th win from 16 starts at the track as the $2 million earner looks to go back-to-back in a similarly run race with James McDonald (in Melbourne this weekend) replaced by Hugh Bowman in the saddle.

Second pick and the only other single figure hope in Golden Pendant betting this season paying $4.80 for the upset is then the defending Gai Waterhouse-trained champion Arabian Gold who won last year but hasn’t been first past the post in anything since.

She gets the rails run this weekend with Tommy Berry aboard and is also two runs into her preparation following a returning fourth at Randwick on September 5 behind Hooked in the Group 2 Tramway Stakes (1400m) from barrier 13 of 14.

The next best in betting is then $11 hopeful Slightly Sweet whose first-up run, like Arabian Gold, also produced a fourth place finish when the Jason Coyle-trained Charge Forward four-year-old was beaten two and a half lengths by Saturday’s odds-on favourite Catkins in the Sheraco.

That was her third run at Rosehill and she’s still to finish in the money at the track she returns to this weekend shooting for her maiden win since becoming a four-time winner in the Group 3 James Carr Stakes (1400m) back in April on the back of a brave seventh when defeated under three lengths in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) to Fenway.

Also fancied to fight for the minor place behind the top two in the markets are the likes of Amanpour ($14) and Peeping ($15).

Waterhouse’s other hope for back-to-back Golden Pendant victories is Northern Meteor five-year-old Amanpour, winner of the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) at Randwick during the autumn.

She returned on September 12 but was disappointing when beaten over eight lengths by the Epsom Handicap-bound Winx in the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes (1300m).

Peeping meanwhile comes out of the Sheraco Stakes where Ron Quinton’s Redoute’s Choice four-year-old failed to beat home any of her rivals crossing 10 lengths away ninth on the back of a 1200m win at Rosehill in mid-August that she’ll be looking to return to the form of.
