2012 The Run To The Rose Betting Update – Pierro Market Mover

Gai Waterhouse’s champion juvenile Pierro is being smashed by the punters ahead of their three-year-old debut at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday, the unvanquished colt nearing odds on territory in The Run To The Rose 2012 betting markets.

Pierro continues to firm in the 2012 The Run To The Rose odds for this Saturday's Rosehill feature

The Golden Slipper – Inglis Sires Produce – Champagne Stakes treble winning son of Lonhro opened at $2.20 to win their first-up spring assignment in the $125,000 Group 3 The Run To The Rose (1200m) this weekend, but has continued to firm as the genuine market mover in the field of six.

Despite having to carry 60kg, the most they have seen to date, Pierro is now at a short $2.05 to uphold their undefeated status with career win number seven before heading to Victoria for the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival features.

Pierro must also overcome the dreaded “Golden Slipper Curse” which has seen 42 percent of Slipper winners never win another race, including in recent years Phelan Ready (2009) and Crystal Lily (2010).

His impeccable pedigree and obvious class however suggests that Pierro can buck the trend and that he will continue to improve as a three and four-year-old.

“Pierro could be the right horse (to break the hoodoo),” the Daily Telegraph’s Ken Callander said.

“He was absolutely top grade as a two-year-old and there is no reason in the world he won’t be a top-grade three-year-old.

“The fact Pierro is by Lonhro is a very good sign.

“Most of the Lonhro breed mature into better three and four-year-olds.

“That’s the big thing in Pierro’s favour. He just doesn’t strike you as an early-comer.

“Lonhro was only a little horse as a two-year-old but then he matured and got better and better every season.

“His sons and daughters tend to follow that trend.”

Pierro’s most perceivable danger in The Run To The Rose on the other hand has continued to ease out in their price to bring the favourite’s winning streak to an end.

The Hawkes-trained All Too Hard couldn’t get within one and three-quarter lengths of Pierro when the pair ran the Inglis Sires Produce Stakes quinella last season.

The money says the half-brother of Black Caviar can’t turn the tables this time round either with Casino Prince colt All Too Hard, a $1.025 million yearling purchase for Nathan Tinkler’s Patinack Farm, easing out from $2.50 to $2.60 in The Run To The Rose betting markets.

Odds on the remaining four hopefuls have remained steady at their opening prices with the Peter Snowden-trained Epaulette, who like Pierro and All Too Hard is heading towards the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) in Melbourne next month, the third fancy at $7.

The Commands colt is looking to prove their potential as an older horse after a luckless Golden Slipper run last time out, Epaulette failing to beat home any of their 15 rivals, and Snowden is confident a good three-year-old season is ahead for the Black Opal Stakes winner.

“It was disappointing to see where he finished because you know how much ability the horse has,” Snowden said of the Golden Slipper.

“But look, we’ll make up for it this time through I hope. And hopefully we can get a good race underneath us.”
