This Saturday the action of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival heats up as Rosehill host the $125,000 Group 3 The Run To The Rose (1300m).
Considered the premier preparatory race for three-year-olds on their way to the richest race at the carnival, the $1million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m), The Run To The Rose is always a hotly contested affair both on the field and in the online betting markets.
Premier online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au opened their 2010 The Run To The Rose betting markets yesterday and since then there has been a number of changes to the odds of the 12 hopeful starters.
The hot pre-race favourite is still the Gai Waterhouse-trained Squamosa who is paying $2 for a win at Ladbrokes.com.au, the unbeaten colt drawn in barrier nine and due to be ridden by Blake Spriggs.
With Sydney still coping plenty of wet weather the odds on the second favourite, David Payne’s Masquerader, have drifted out to $4.60 from $4.20 at Ladbrokes.com.au.
Representing excellent value is the Bart Cummings-trained Kudakulari who is out to $11 after opening at $10.
The biggest mover in the Ladbrokes.com.au markets has been unbeaten filly Classics.
Trained by Peter Snowden, the Commands three-year-old opened at $11 but the punters are getting behind Classics, having just her second start after winning on debut last month, and she is now into $8.50.
Hot favourite Squamosa looks hard to beat, but our value pick is Classics at $8.50 through Ladbrokes.com.au
The 2010 Run To The Rose is due to jump as the sixth event at the Rosehill Races this Saturday at 3:40pm.
