2016 WA Guineas Betting: Ellicazoom Narrow Favourite

Neville Parnham’s in-form filly Ellicazoom has opened narrow favourite in WA Guineas 2016 betting to win the Ascot summer feature this weekend.

The $500,000 Group 2 Sky Racing W.A. Guineas (1600m) supports the Group 1 Railway Stakes Day card in Perth on Saturday and features a final field of 16 three-year-olds.

In a tight top half of the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au the early top favourite at $5.50 drawn nicely in barrier six is Testa Rossa filly Ellicazoom.

She won back-to-back Ascot races earlier this campaign including the Listed Burgess Queen Stakes (1400m) two back.

Last time out she was a length back second over Saturday’s track / distance behind Samovare in the Group 3 W.A. Champion Fillies Stakes (1600m).

On the quick seven day turnaround Ellicazoom is out to frank that form and takes on the boys in a WA Guineas field missing Samovare who is being saved for a possible December 3 run in the $1 million Group 1 Kingston Town Stakes (1800m).

Two rivals follow closely in the WA Guineas odds with Daniel Morton’s widely-drawn colt Saul’s Special and Group 1 performed filly Whispering Brook both at $6.

To wear the number one saddlecloth and jumping from gate 15 is Charge Forward colt Saul’s Special who chases back-to-back wins at the track.

On November 5 he narrowly won the Listed Fairetha Stakes (1400m) and is up to a mile for the first time this Saturday with Brad Parnham retaining the ride.

Despite the wide alley and his inexperience at the distance, Saul’s Special is being kept safe in betting.

The other co-second fancy in the early markets for the lucrative Group 2 is the Simon Miller-trained Hinchinbrook filly Whispering Brook who returns home for the first time as a three-year-old.

Her two-year-old campaign was flawless as she won all four starts at Ascot including three Group status features.

That earned her a trip east to Melbourne for a spring bid that was full of ups and downs including a Cox Plate Day scratching at the gates.

She was smart in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) however when third to Global Glamour, before finishing 13th behind the runner-up in that I Am A Star in Flemington’s Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) last time out.

Miller gives her the chance to atone back home taking on the boys in the WA Guineas where Whispering Brook will be out to retain her 100% winning strike rate at the course.

Three other hopefuls are also under $10 to take out the WA Guineas title including Humanity ($7.50) drawn a treat in barrier three.

The Lindsey Smith-trained Al Maher colt comes off the narrow second in the Fairetha Stakes behind Saul’s Special and is looking to turn the tables getting out over 1600m.

He has previous winning form over the Ascot mile, gets the gun run in the race and champion Sydney hoop Hugh Bowman is over for the ride in another plus.

The others at single-figures are the Trevor Andrews-trained Saxon gelding Get Over It ($8.50) coming off a fourth in the Fairetha Stakes and Morton’s More Than Ready gelding Lusaha ($9) who ran third in the same traditional Guineas lead-up.
