Royal Randwick is host to four elite level races on Day 1 of The Championships on Saturday including a smart field of two-year-olds facing off in the Group 1 $1 million Inglis Sires’ (1400m).

There are only two fillies up against 11 boys in the Inglis Sires’ field this season and the latest markets at Ladbrokes.com.au have one of those, Fireburn, as the short-priced $2.70 favourite.

The flying daughter of Rebel Dane is four-from-five to date having run fourth on debut last December at Warwick Farm before winning her next four straight.

She raced in Group company for the first time two back winning the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) on a Heavy (10) Randwick track before that barnstorming 2.44 length victory in the Group 1 $5 million Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill.

Fireburn was at double-figures for her win in the world’s richest race for two-year-olds but won’t be found at that price on Saturday as she looks to do the Golden Slipper – ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes double for the first time since Pierro (2012).

Throughout history 38 fillies have won the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes, most recently El Dorado Dreaming (2018), and the money is on Fireburn to be the next from her lovely mid-field barrier six draw for jockey Brenton Avdulla.

The other filly in the mix is Anthony Cummings’ widely-drawn She’s Extreme out in barrier 12 who is the equal $8 second elect in Inglis Sires’ betting.

The daughter of Extreme Choice was runner-up to Fireburn in the Sweet Embrace on that bottomless track back in late February, franking the form next-up winning Rosehill’s Group 3 Magic Night Stakes (1200m).

She returned for the Golden Slipper but only managed to run seventh over six lengths beaten in a performance she is looking to atone for over further this weekend.

The other juvenile at $8 to upset Fireburn on Saturday is the best fancied of the colts and geldings is the Chris Waller-trained improver Showcourt.

Waller chases his first victory in the event and is expected to have a genuine chance with his son of Snitzel, a maiden after two starts, who was last seen running fourth to Sejardan in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) here on March 5.

Rounding out the single-figure fancies at $9 looking the potential value out in barrier 11 is Daumier for Anthony & Sam Freedman.

The Epaulette colt narrowly won this year’s Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at just his third start at big odds two back before a credible fourth at 20/1 behind Fireburn in the Slipper when racing the Sydney way for the first time.

Other notable hopes at longer odds include the Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes-trained Magic ($11) last seen running third in the Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) and Danny O’Brien’s undefeated Dundeel colt Let’srollthedice ($13) out of Melbourne whose latest run produced a Group 2 VRC Sires’ win over the distance at Flemington.

The 2022 Inglis Sires’ is set to run as Randwick Race 6 at 3:15pm (AEDT) on Saturday with the latest markets courtesy of Ladbrokes.com.au available in full here.
