Taj Mahal Tops Tight 2016 Ming Dynasty Quality Odds

It is a wide open market for the Ming Dynasty Quality 2016 at Royal Randwick on Saturday with the small and tightly matched field of three-year-olds led in betting by the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Taj Mahal.

Running as Randwick Race 3 at 1:20pm (AEST) to kick off the Group racing action on Chelmsford Stakes Day, this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Daily Telegraph Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) has drawn just eight runners.

All but two of those are currently under $10 for the win in the Ming Dynasty Quality odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Heading the line-up at $3.60 is Team Snowden’s progressive son of More Than Ready Taj Mahal, the colt second-up on Saturday.

He has won just one of his five starts to date and is tipped to improve on his fifth a fortnight ago at the track when resuming in the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) won by Divine Prophet.

Kerrin McEvoy is replaced in the saddle this weekend by Blake Shinn, and while Taj Mahal goes up to 58kg for the Ming Dynasty he is being kept safe in betting with fitness on his side.

Occupying the second line of betting at $4.40 is High Mist, Hugh Bowman’s mount drawn in barrier four.

Superstar Sydney-based trainer Chris Waller saddles-up the High Chaparral colt who is as yet untested in stakes’ company.

High Mist was last seen running second from a wide gate (13 of 15) at Rosehill over 1500m on July 30 and should be well suited to the 1400m first-up from a better barrier.

Hot on his heels at $4.80 to win the Ming Dynasty is the promising Swear for Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes.

Tommy Berry partners the Redoute’s Choice colt after riding him for two recent Sydney trials, the youngster having had just the one run to date winning over 1300m at Hawkesbury in late April.

The next best fancied at an equal $7.50 each for the win are Skylight Glow and the early market mover Bit Dusty drawn in barriers three and two respectively.

James Cummings prepares nicely-bred Northern Meteor filly Skylight Glow who has had three starts for two wins to date, the latest over 1400m at Randwick on May 28.

She has had two trials since, is proven at the track and trip and is a livewire hope first-up from the good gate.

One on her inside, Bit Dusty has Tim Clark aboard again after he rode the John Sargent-trained O’Reilly gelding for a winning debut at Newcastle in mid-August.

How Bit Dusty handles the tougher company and extra metres off that narrow 1250m win are key here, but in an open field he’s every chance to run top three.

The last of the single-figure hopes at $9.50 is Fabvier in the outside barrier, the John Thompson-trained Fastnet Rock filly having her first run at the track.
