2010 Golden Slipper Meeting – The BMW Final Field & Preview

Rosehill racecourse is the place to be this Easter Saturday as the world?s most lucrative two-year-olds race, the $3.5million Group 1 Golden Slipper, takes place as part of an excellent nine race meeting.

An incredible five Group 1 races highlight the card including the illustrious $2.25million The BMW (2400m), which is the second richest race on the day following the Golden Slipper.

This year the 2010 The BMW has drawn a final field of 12 sensational stayers headlined by the current $3.20 favourite with Ladbrokes.com.au?Theseo.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained Theseo is already a five time Group 1 winner following his latest success in the Ranvet Stakes and Chipping Norton Stakes this autumn.

The Danewin gelding has drawn barrier eight with Nash Rawiller picking up the mount on the favourite. Despite his class, however, Theseo is yet to win over 2200m and will be tested in The BMW over 2400m.

Waterhouse could see more than one Group 1 victory at Rosehill on Saturday as she is well represented in a number of the features including her star two-year-old Brightexpectations in the Golden Slipper.

Imported galloper Speed Gifted is the second favourite currently at $4.80 for a win. The Lee Freedman-trained Montjeu gelding ran a gallant third to Theseo in the Ranvet Stakes last start, but has drawn wide for The BMW with barrier 11.

Speed Gifted will be ridden by Glen Boss on Saturday, with the in-form hoop still confident of the horse?s chances especially if the track gets a bit of rain.

In the Group 1 Metropolitan last October, which was run on a heavy track, Speed Gifted ate up his competition and with rain forecast for the Easter long weekend in Sydney a wet track might just give Speed Gifted the advantage.

Kevin Gray trains the third elect for The BMW, Daffodil. The four-year-old No Excuse Needed mare ran fourth in the Ranvet Stakes from barrier nine, but has fared better for Saturday jumping from barrier five with Hugh Bowman aboard.

Meanwhile four-year-old Harris Tweed has been put right into the race currently at $9 after drawing the prized barrier one.

The 2010 The BMW is programmed to start at 2:25pm as race five on Saturday.
