2016 Kindergarten Stakes Odds & Betting Tips

Sydney’s ‘The Championships’ kicks off on Saturday at Royal Randwick Racecourse with the two-year-olds facing off in the Kindergarten Stakes 2016, betting tips and the latest odds for which are found below.

Due to jump at 12:10pm (AEDT) as the first on a bumper 10-race card for Doncaster Mile Day, this year’s $200,000 Group 3 Widden Kindergarten Stakes (1100m) originally attracted a final field of 10 runners.

Just nine remain in the mix after the early scratching of Red Handle (9), the favourite of which in Kindergarten Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au is the rails-drawn El Divino at $2.50.

Gai Waterhouse’s nicely-bred Snitzel colt has had just the one start to date, but he blitzed his debut with a nearly five length win over 1000m on a Heavy (8) Gosford track on March 17.

He drops from 58.5kg to 56.5kg at set weights on Saturday and will get the run of the race from barrier one with Blake Shinn replacing James McDonald in the saddle.

It is a super tight Kindergarten Stakes betting market this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival with market mover Astern hot on the favourite’s heels having been backed in from $2.90 to $2.70 for the win.

He jumps from the opposite end of the field in the outside alley with McDonald aboard, the John O’Shea-trained Medaglia D’Oro colt having won two of his three starts to date.

His biggest triumph was two back in February’s Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) before things went amiss when 11th to Capitalist in the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) last time out.

So will the top two fancies battle it out in the quinella or is there an upset Kindergarten Stakes result on the agenda from a longer priced hopeful such as the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained  Lionhearted ($6.50) coming off a fourth in the Pago Pago Stakes or the returning Magic Millions Classic fifth-placed filly Mooshakissa ($8.50)?


#1 Astern ($2.70)

He is drawn wide but stepping back in class and distance off a Golden Slipper run puts this Godolphin-raced youngster on track to return to winning form. McDonald has opted for this ride over any others in the field after Astern did it tough from barrier 16 of 16 in the Slipper over 1200m on March 19. He’ll be sharper on Saturday in a smaller, easier field of rivals and if the Slipper didn’t take too much out of him, he can win.


#7 Alliterate ($11)

Really nice price offered for this super-consistent Muswellbrook-trained Al Maher filly. She hasn’t been tested in city class, but around the provincial tracks has been very impressive including a two and a quarter-length win over this distance in mid-March. She’s deserving of a shot at them here, Tommy Berry has the mount and she’s got a peach draw in barrier three.


#3 El Divino ($2.50)

Progressive youngster drawn to win from the inside alley. Did everything right in his Gosford debut and should be well-placed in this grade. Is a massive hope with any rain around after winning on a mud track last time out.
