The Ben, Will & JD Hayes-trained Cox...
The punters are coming for the favourite, In Secret, who continues to dominate 2022 Golden Rose Stakes betting on the feature race in Sydney this weekend.
Forensics (March, 2008) is the last filly to beat home the boys in the now $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m), but the money suggests the James Cummings-trained In Secret can be the next on Saturday at Rosehill.
The talented young daughter of I Am Invincible took her record up to three wins from four starts when improving on her Group 2 Silver Shadow second to win the Group 2 Run To The Rose (1200m) by nearly two lengths last start.
The Silver Shadow form was further franked last weekend with the winner Zougotcha going on to win the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) at Randwick.
Now it is In Secret’s turn at the 1400m, and she looks well positioned to beat home the boys again from a favourable barrier three draw.
Despite the fillies’ hoodoo in the race, In Secret is at $2.70 and firming in the latest Golden Rose Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.
Jockey James McDonald is flying this campaign and comes back aboard the Golden Rose favourite after Tommy Berry rode her last time out.
Both McDonald and Berry will get their chance at a third Golden Rose Stakes winning ride with the latter booked to partner fellow filly She’s Extreme for trainer Anthony Cummings.
She’s Extreme is drawn barrier six second-up.
The Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) winner from the autumn pays $9 to improve on her third fresh behind North Star Lass on September 3 in the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m).
Gary Portelli’s Golden Slipper – Inglis Sires’ double winner Fireburn ($9.50) out wide in gate 16 is the other filly at single-figures to win the Rose.
The contingent of girls is then rounded out by the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Paris Dior at $19, the daughter of Pierro also a graduate out of the Furious Stakes having run fourth first-up.
Following In Secret in Golden Rose Stakes betting this spring at an easing quote of $6 meanwhile is her stablemate, the fellow Godolphin-raced Golden Mile.
There is plenty of hype on this progressive, Caulfield Guineas-bound son of Astern with the colt having dominated the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) at the track and distance by over three lengths last time out.
He comes into barrier 10 with the scratching of the rails-drawn Best Of Bordeaux who instead takes on an easier assignment in the Listed Heritage Stakes (1100m) earlier on Saturday’s card.
Rounding out the single-figure Golden Rose hopes at $7 is then Jacquinot for Mick Price & Michael Kent Junior.
The Rubick colt from Cranbourne also comes off a last start victory bringing in arguably the best form lines.
He was a 1.5 length winner over Aft Cabin on August 27 in Melbourne’s Group 3 H.D.F. McNeil Stakes (1200m) with the runner-up going on to post a huge Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) victory next start.
There has also been a slight move on Portelli’s other runner with Sejardan backed in from $26 to $20 as the Todman Stakes winning Sebring colt looks to improve on his seventh in the Run To The Rose.
