Sepoy Still Favourite in 2011 Golden Slipper Betting

The Peter Snowden trained Sepoy remains a clear cut favourite for the 2011 Golden Slipper.

Sepoy is currently the worst result for bookmakers around the country and is currently quoted at $3.25.

The boom colt won its first four starts including the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes, before tasting defeat for the first time in the Todman Stakes behind the Anthony Cummings trained Smart Missile.

However it seems apparent that punters are willing to forgive that run as it was on wet track, and being by Elusive Quality Sepoy would prefer to race on a true surface.

Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan confirmed that punters had turned to Sepoy in the world’s richest race for two year olds.

“A drying track is right up Sepoy’s alley and punters seem to have re-assessed the race at the last minute,” said Sullivan.

Trainer Peter Snowden remains confident his colt can salute in the Slipper.

“I feel Sepoy is about the same as he was before the Blue Diamond. He looks well and he has improved to my eye from Rosehill two weeks ago,” said Snowden.

Meanwhile, the Anthony Cummings trained Smart Missile remains a clear second favourite at $4.60.

Despite a tough race on a wet track last start it appears Smart Missile hasn’t been flattened by the gallop.

“He’s fine. He ate up this morning and wanted to put his head down on the track. He’s feeling bright,” said Cummings.

In other Golden Slipper betting news, Karuta Queen has had her opening quote slashed from $17.00 to $12.00 as it appears the Rosehill track is favouring front runners.

Others in Golden Slipper betting include Foxwedge ($8.00), Satin Shoes ($9.00), Elite Falls ($10.00) and there has been some specking for the Bart Cummings trained Salade at $13.00. All other runners are quoted at $15.00 or better.
