Dane Ripper Stakes 2020 Betting Update: Winter Bride Market Mover

There’s been a big early move in 2020 Dane Ripper Stakes betting for Saturday on the Toby & Trent Edmonds-trained Winter Bride who is out to improve on her eighth to stablemate Tyzone in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap last weekend.

After the non-acceptances of Chris Waller’s runner-up Madam Rouge, Winter Bride (8th) and the eye-catching Tony Gollan-trained Outback Barbie (6th) are the mares on the quick back-up out of Queensland’s premier race into the Group 2 $175,000 Dane Ripper Stakes (1400m) on the weekend.

Contested over the same track and distance as the Stradbroke, the Dane Ripper Stakes for fillies and mares runs as a weight-for-age event this Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival due to a number of COVID-19 forced changes to the festival line-up.

Rounding out the nine-race Eagle Farm program on Saturday, the Dane Ripper originally drew a capacity field of 16 before the early scratching of Waller’s widely-drawn Sure Knee (14).

Since Dane Ripper Stakes betting opened at Ladbrokes.com.au, Not A Single Doubt five-year-old Winter Bride has been heavily backed by the punters in from $12 to $7.

Drawn barrier 11 with Robbie Fradd to ride, it is an interesting market move considering Winter Bride goes up from 51.5kg in the Stradbroke to 57kg in the Group 2.

She is also yet to finish in the money in her four Eagle Farm starts to date and looks to break a notable winning drought not having won a race since the Group 3 Wenona Girl Handicap (1200m) at Randwick in March last year.

Winter Bride has been competitive in a number of races since however including her Group 1 Railway Stakes (1200m) second on New Year’s Day across the Tasman.

In her favour, she drops notably in class here and was only 2.4 lengths beaten in the Stradbroke as a $51 roughie when the fellow Team Edmonds-trained Tyzone set a record time of 1:20.43.

Outback Barbie meanwhile pays $8 to break her Eagle Farm hoodoo on the seven-day back-up, Gollan’s classy Spirit Of Boom four-year-old having run out of her skin to run 1.5 lengths back sixth in the Stradbroke.

That was Eagle Farm start number six for the $1.4 million earner and Gollan remains hopeful that other factors are behind her inability to finish in the top three at the track and not the mare’s disliking to the course itself.

Sitting top of the Dane Ripper Stakes odds meanwhile at $3.80 is the Bjorn Baker-trained Irithea drawn the rails with Ryan Maloney to ride.

From the favourable inside alley the Snitzel six-year-old is expected to show her good early speed for an on-pace run as she looks to add to her strong 1400m record (8:4-0-2).

Irithea has been kept fresh since her one length win from out wide (barrier 16 of 16) at Rosehill on May 16 in the Group 3 Dark Jewel Classic (1400m) and she looked solid in a recent Warwick Farm trial.

The last of the single-figure fancies is from the Sunshine Coast stables of David Vandyke with the Straddie first emergency Baccarat Baby paying $8 to win the consolation prize this weekend.

The four-year-old Casino Prince mare has a decent Eagle Farm record (6:1-2-1) unlike many of the better fancied runners on Saturday.

She was last seen running third to Victory Eight when narrowly beaten at her home track in the Listed Wayne Wilson (1600m) on May 15 and looks well placed dropping in distance.
