Capitalist Dominates 2016 San Domenico Stakes Odds

Despite having a number of hoodoos to overcome first-up on the weekend the San Domenico Stakes 2016 odds are firmly dominated by the returning Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Capitalist.

Last weekend was the original date of return for the Golden Slipper Stakes winning son of Written Tycoon, but connections scratched the colt from the Missile Stakes due to a Heavy-rated track at Randwick.

He now leads the markets for a Rosehill Gardens run this Saturday in the $150,000 Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) where he will face just five rivals in his spring campaign kick-off.

A winner of all but one of his four career starts to date, Capitalist faces a field of his own age group in the Sydney feature and jumps from barrier four with Blake Shinn reuniting acquaintances.

Recent history shows however that the past three Golden Slipper Stakes champions have all failed to win a subsequent race, while the Slipper / San Domenico double hasn’t been achieved in the past 25 years.

Still Capitalist is odds-on in San Domenico Stakes betting at at $1.85, out from $1.70, on the back of two impressive trial wins.

Two of his rivals join him under double-figures including the early market mover Star Turn ($4.40 into $3.50) who Tommy Berry rides from barrier six.

Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes saddle-up the Star Witness colt who is out to improve on his sixth to Capitalist in the Golden Slipper last time out back in March.

Before that he ran fifth in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) in Melbourne, and he has subsequently won back-to-back Sydney hit-outs with Berry aboard.

The other best fancied to score a boilover San Domenico Stakes result at $5 is the undefeated Gerald Ryan-trained Tango Rain.

The Manhattan Rain colt has his first Black-Type start on the weekend after winning his two opening career starts at Canterbury on rain-affected going.

His latest was by one and a quarter lengths over Thronum who went on to win last Saturday’s Listed The Rosebud.

Kerrin McEvoy stays on the up-and-comer after missing the light-weight Missile Stakes ride on Capitalist last weekend.

Mount Panorama is posted as a $14 hope in barrier three for Gary Moore, the Sebring gelding having his first start for his new trainer.

He too comes off a trial win (Gosford, 800m, 01/08/2016) and has class having run third in three Rosehill Group races in the autumn including being beaten just a quarter-length in the Group 2 Pago Pago Strakes (1200m) on March 12.

Rounding out the market are the former Kiwi-trained Manolo Blahniq ($16) and the Joe Pride-trained filly Kentucky Miss ($17).

Manolo Blahniq is a son of former New Zealand champion and Australian Group 1 winner Jimmy Choux and he is on the Golden Rose Stakes path this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

Pride meanwhile is hoping to get a stakes’ placing with his daughter of Foxwedge Kentucky Miss who he scratched from a run in a big field of fellow fillies in Melbourne’s Group 3 Quezette Stakes on Saturday in favour of the San Domenico.
