The headline race at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney on Saturday is the 2017 Coolmore Classic, betting tips and the latest odds for the fillies-and-mares’ feature found below.
It is a nineteen-starter field full of depth engaged for this season’s $600,000 Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m), the handicap clash set to run as Rosehill Race 7 at 4:15pm (AEDT).
Heading the latest Coolmore Classic betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au – who are offering Enhanced Coolmore Classic odds (T&Cs apply / Max Bet $100) – at $3.60 and firming is the Chris Waller-trained Omei Sword.
She has come up with the far outside alley (19 of 19) giving her a massive task to overcome the barrier, but the bookies are taking no chances with the Golden Rose runner-up who caught the eye with a second in the Surround Stakes first-up.
The biggest dangers out to stop Omei Sword from living up to the pre-race hype are Dixie Blossoms ($6.50) for last year’s winning trainer Ron Quinton and the dual Group 1 winner Global Glamour ($9).
Earlier in the week we published our comprehensive 2017 Coolmore Classic Form Guide & Betting Preview and based on the facts and stats uncovered there we have the runners to back and sack in the Group 1 listed below.
#2 Dixie Blossoms ($6.50)
This is a very hard race for the punters with so many livewire chances for the win. Quinton won his second Coolmore last year with the ill-fated Peeping in an upset and think he’s got a big hope to go back-to-back with this in-form four-year-old. She comes off the runaway 6.5 length win in the Guy Walter Stakes, which produced Peeping (3rd) last year and if there’s any rain around she’ll be swimming. Decent barrier compared to the favourite and big danger.
#9 Silent Sedition ($13)
Double-figures looks overs for this Victorian raider, the War Chant four-year-old coming off a Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m) win for the punters at Caulfield. Ridden by last year’s winning hoop Sam Clipperton and boasts the highest Place Rate of the field (93%). Out really wide (18) so if she gets into the right spot she can finish hard late.
#14 Omei Sword ($3.60)
She is shaping-up as a bona fide star in the making, but she’ll be working from the widest alley in this big field. Second-up she strips fitter and is the best of the three-year-olds looking to win for the fillies for the first time since Typhoon Tracy (2009). Her first-up run was delayed, but there was no doubting she was back in flying form with the Surround Stakes second. Group 1 performed and on just 52.5kg could get the job done for the punters.
