Sepoy Drifts in Golden Slipper Odds After Barrier Draw

Odds on Sepoy to become the 2011 Golden Slipper winner at Rosehill this Saturday have eased after the Darley-owned colt drew gate 10 in the Slipper barrier draw earlier today while the love for Smart Missile continues to rocket.

Having dominated betting for the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) over the past month, the Peter Snowden-trained Sepoy is now out to a quote of around $3.30 having sat as short as $2 in the futures Slipper odds.

Sepoy enjoyed a stunning start to his career winning his opening four starts in succession before running second as the beaten favourite behind Smart Missile in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on March 12.

Also one of the 17 acceptors – 16 starters plus one emergency – for this year’s Golden Slipper field, Smart Missile is now honing in on Sepoy not only on the track but in the betting markets as well.

Anthony Cummings’ improving Fastnet Rock colt, unbeaten in his two starts to date, is now the close $4.20 second favourite for the Golden Slipper.

Masthead

Masthead is a roughie in the Golden Slipper odds but could finish in the money on Saturday

On Saturday Smart Missile is due to jump from barrier five with in-form hoop Glen Boss in the mount.

Multiple Group 1 winning jockey Boss was aboard for Smart Missile’s upset win in the Todman Stakes and has retained the ride on the two-year-old.

Further adding to Smart Missile’s claims to conquer Sepoy for a second time on Saturday was his impressive track work at Randwick this morning.

Other movers in the latest 2011 Golden Slipper markets include:

  • #3 Foxwedge ($7.50 out to $8.50) – Coming off a third in the Todman but drawing wide with barrier 11 for the Slipper
  • #4 Masthead ($81 into $67) – Blue Diamond placegetter enjoyed ideal barrier four draw, looking to improve on last-start fourth to Running Tall in VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes, could rise and finish in the money
  • #8 Satin Shoes ($13 out to $15) – Odds continue to drift on one-time second favourite despite good barrier two draw, possibly too close to the rails especially if rain around
  • #12 Shared Reflections ($19 out to $21) – Underrated Gai Waterhouse-trained filly has nice barrier six draw and perfect form having won the Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) last start
