Golden Rose 2017 Betting Moves: Champagne Cuddles Firms

There has been some early money at Rosehill Gardens for the in-form Bjorn Baker-trained filly Champagne Cuddles to steal the show with an upset in the 2017 Golden Rose Stakes over the boys.

Just two fillies are in the mix for this afternoon’s Group 1 $1 million Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) with the Lindsay Park-trained Silver Shadow – Furious Stakes double winner Formality ($15) and Champagne Cuddles ($14).

Earlier in the week punters could have consistent Not A Single Doubt filly Champagne Cuddles as long as $26 in the Golden Rose odds at

The up-and-comer has been smashed in the markets and is now into $14 to become the first Golden Rose winning filly since Forensics (2008) to beat the boys in the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival feature.

Champagne Cuddles is drawn in barrier eight of 14, a gate that produced Exopshere (2015) for his Golden Rose victory two years ago.

Jockey Jason Collett takes over in the saddle for Tye Angland, riding the filly for the first time since her back-to-back Sydney wins in October of 2016 and June this year at Rosehill and Randwick respectively.

This season as a three-year-old the chestnut filly has had three starts so should be reaching peak fitness for today’s Group 1.

First-up she was a quarter-length third to Formality in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) before finishing a nostril flare off the same filly in the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m).

She raced again last weekend for a second behind Alizee in the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) so is on the quick back-up, but has form over the Golden Rose distance.

Golden Rose Stakes betting for 2017 however remains firmly led by the Gerald Ryan-trained Menari who has eased out slightly from $2 to $2.30 to become the fourth horse in as many years to win the Group 1 off a lead-up victory in the Group 2 The Run To The Rose (1200m).

The son of Snitzel ticks plenty of boxes heading into the Golden Rose this afternoon and was impressive with his one and a half-length victory at the track against a similar field of rivals a fortnight ago.

Firm at $6 is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained second elect and Run To The Rose runner-up Pariah whose only unplaced run from six career starts was the Golden Slipper failure on a mud track last time in.

This campaign he won the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill before the second to Menari on September 9 that he is looking to go one better than stretching out over 1400m in the Golden Rose Stakes.

History shows that just one of the past 12 Golden Slipper winners came off a non-Sydney lead-up, a hoodoo the Ciaron Maher-trained Merchant Navy is out to beat.

The unbeaten Fastnet Rock colt has won all four of his career starts in Victoria including the Group 3 H.D.F. McNeil Stakes (1200m) last time out and is at $8 to bring that form to Sydney.

Other Golden Rose contenders firming in the markets include Gai Waterhouse’s Stan Fox Stakes winner Gold Standard ($13 into $12) and Team Snowden’s untapped Ming Dynasty Quality runner-up back in August Assimilate ($13 into $11).
