Trenchant Tops 2016 Taj Rossi Series Final Odds

Despite a wide gate and top weight the Godolphin-raced juvenile Trenchant leads betting for the Taj Rossi Series Final 2016 this weekend on Flemington Finals Day.

A field of 13 two-year-olds is left for this year’s $120,000 Listed Taj Rossi Series Final (1600m) after the early scratching of the Mick Price-trained Mystical Star (14) who had drawn the outside alley.

Also out wider in the handicap mile clash is the John O’Shea-trained Medaglia D’Oro colt Trenchant (10 into 9) who comes off a win over 1400m at the track a fortnight back.

The nicely-bred up-and-comer had over two lengths to spare on his closest rival to break his maiden status in that June 25 run at Flemington and is back shooting for successive wins in Race 4 at 1:33pm (AEST) on Saturday afternoon.

Craig Williams comes aboard for a second time having ridden the youngster two back for a third at Moonee Valley behind Artie Dee Two, Trenchant also going up from 54kg last start to the equal 59kg top weight in the Taj Rossi.

Despite that have him as the firm $2.80 favourite in Taj Rossi Series Final betting rating him as the one to beat again even with the extra kilos.

A further three youngsters are under double figures for the win including early market mover Cobbmore ($5.50 into $5) jumping from barrier two with Luke Currie aboard.

Currie will need to work hard from that close-to-the-rails barrier to stay out of trouble on a likely Heavy-rated track for Finals Day aboard Tony McEvoy’s More Than Ready colt.

Cobbmore won on debut in early June over 1400m on the Synthetic track at Pakenham and is out to atone for a fifth to Trenchant last start in a heat of this series.

The next best in betting are the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Fastnet Rock colt Fast ‘N’ Rolling ($6) coming off three top three runs without a win this winter and the Phillip Stokes-trained Captain Duffy ($7.50).

Hailing from Adelaide, King Cugat colt Captain Duffy makes his interstate debut on the weekend after a 1200m win at home on June 25, Saturday also his first test over further than that distance.

Of the longer priced hopes in the Taj Rossi Series Finals odds the most likely for the upset are Lee & Anthony Freedman’s promising colt Cliff Hanger ($12) who looks like he will enjoy the distance and the equal top weight Moshway ($18) with the inside run from barrier one.
