A quality field of promising two-year-olds take to the Royal Randwick track on Saturday for this autumn’s edition of the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes 2016, betting tips and the latest odds for which are detailed below.
The opening of the four elite level races on Day 1 of ‘The Championships’, this year’s $1 million Group 1 Inglis’ Sires (1400m) is due to run as Randwick Race 6 at 3:10pm (AEDT) and features 12 hopefuls.
Current favourite in Inglis Sires’ betting at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $3.50 for the win is the market mover Yankee Rose backed in from an earlier quote of $4.20.
She won her opening two starts in the spring at Rosehill before returning to the track first-up on March 19 for an eye-catching second in the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m).
Now she is out to go one better, the David Vandyke-trained filly always targeting this run over the 1400m that should suit better than the 1200m of the Slipper.
Next best in the Inglis’ Sires odds this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival are Golden Slipper fourth placegetter Telperion ($4) from the Godolphin stables in a gun gate four draw on Saturday and Chris Waller’s untapped High Chaparral filly Omei Sword ($5.50) having just her third career start.
So will the top three fancies be the first three over the line on Saturday or is there value tipping an upset ATC Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes result from the likes of VRC Sires’ Produce winner Seaburge ($8) or Peter & Paul Snowden’s runner-up in the same Flemington race Detective ($12)?
#8 Yankee Rose ($3.50)
This talented daughter of All American has been set for this race and the Golden Slipper second was a nice pick-up along the way. She’ll be fitter for that run, finishing better over the 200m further and Zac Purton retains the ride making the favourite filly pretty hard to beat and still at a decent price.
#1 Telperion ($4)
Sticking with the bookies for the top two, Telperion putting in perhaps the best run of the Slipper for his fast-finishing fourth. He’s another likely to improve over the extra metres of the Inglis Sires’ and barrier four looks ideal for the John O’Shea-trained Street Cry colt who has James McDonald back aboard this weekend after James Doyle rode him in the Slipper.
#5 Detective ($12)
This perennial runner-up has finished second in all four of his starts to date, the latest in Melbourne’s equivalent race on March 12. He was beaten only three quarters of a length by another runner on Saturday, Seaburge, and has Sydney form. Don’t write him off here at the juicy odds.
