2017 Godolphin Crown Field & Odds: Artistry Narrow Favourite

One of the three features on the Hawkesbury Gold Cup Day card on Saturday, this season’s $175,000 Group 3 2017 Godolphin Crown (1300m) has attracted a capacity field of fillies and mares.

Representing last year’s winning stable who took out the race with Nancy (2016), Shamardal five-year-old Artistry currently sits top of the Godolphin Crown odds at $4 through Ladbrokes.com.au.

She has been backed in early from an opening quote of $5.50, Hugh Bowman to ride the favourite from a favourable gate four draw that will become two if the emergencies Modha (2) and Prompt Response (3) fail to gain a start.

Artistry enjoyed a Group 3 Flemington win last Melbourne Cup Carnival and also won first-up at Rosehill in March.

Her latest run produced a third behind Secret Agenda at Randwick on April 8 in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m), the form of which has stacked up a number of times in the Hawkesbury Crown race.

The other best in Godolphin Crown betting following closely at $4.40 is the wider-drawn Daysee Doom in barrier 12 (into 10).

Ron Quinton prepares the four-year-old daughter of Domesday who has had the one Hawkesbury run to date for a winning debut by three and a half lengths in March last year.

Since then Daysee Doom has enjoyed a further four wins over her 10-start career to date and her autumn form in Sydney has been consistent.

She was just over a length beaten for a brave fourth two back behind Heavens Above in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill and comes off a devastatingly close second to Zanbagh from March 25 in the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m).

Dropping back to 1300m on Saturday should suit and she will also likely appreciate a firmer track after a tough run on Heavy going last time out.

Despite the bumper size of the field, just two other final acceptors are also at single-figures for the win including Sweet Redemption ($6) who races fresh.

Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott prepare the Snitzel mare whose last run was a third over the Doomben mile in December.

The four-year-old won the Group 3 Festival Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill prior to that and has been brought on with two Sydney trials this month including a nearly four length winning hit-out on April 18 over 1200m at Randwick.

Stablemate and second emergency Prompt Response is also being kept safe in betting at $9 despite the Beneteau filly being far from confirmed for a run.
