2017 Golden Slipper Preview
Houtzen ($4.40) is the current favourite for the 2017 Golden Slipper. Ridden by Jeff Lloyd, Houtzen has won his last 5 races around the 1000m-1200m mark. The only knock on Houtzen is a wide barrier draw (16).
Next in the betting is Catchy ($5.00) and she currently holds a 100% career win rate from 4 starts. She beat Pariah ($9.00) by 0.40 lengths in her latest win in the Blue Diamond. Craig Williams has rode all 4 wins on Catchy.
She will reign ($6.00) is the third favourite and also has a good career record with a 75% win rate. She finished second in the Reisling two weeks ago on a heavy track.
Tulip is a selection for your trifecta and has come in from $11 to $9.50 already. Kerrin McEvoy is a quality jockey and rides Tulip in the Golden Slipper.
George Ryder Stakes Preview
Winx is at the short odds of $1.18 to win the George Ryder Stakes. She raced twelve days ago at Randwick and won again, defeating the competition by 2 lengths.
Next in the betting is Chautauqua at $8.00. He should be fitter for the run after running two races from a spell. Chautauqua has a solid wet record and will be coming out of the 1 barrier.
With two straight wins, Le Romain is your best value bet to produce an upset in this race. He defeated Chautauqua in his last race and excels on wet tracks.
Ranvet Stakes Preview
Hartnell is the favourite for the Ranvet Stakes (Race 4) on Saturday.
Hartnell ($1.95) had a poor run in his latest race twelve days ago, but the bookies are predicting a better showing and no Winx for competition helps.
The United States at $5.00 is coming off a mixed bag results in recent form. He finished fifth in the Australia Cup. However, he has a good record on soft/heavy tracks which should help.
Antonio Giuseppe ($8.50) has the best career win rate in the field (55%) and 73% place percentage. Stratum Star ($9.00) comes into this race with 3 wins out of his last 4 races.
The Galaxy Preview
Russian Revolution is coming off a spell and last raced in the Coolmore Stud Stakes in 2016. He has a 80% career win rate and will be starting out of the 14 barrier. He has solid wet form with 2 wins on soft tracks.
The Gai Waterhouse mare, English is the next favourite for the Galaxy. She recently won her first race of 2017 at Randwick against Redzel and Stupido.
Fell Swoop has a 45% career win rate and is ridden by Hugh Bowman. The gelding has a solid second-up career record and likes the wet.
Music Magnate is a solid value bet and is unbeaten on soft/heavy tracks.
Rosehill Guineas Preview
Inference ($3.50) is the current favourite for the 2017 Rosehill Guineas. He won the Randwick Guineas a fortnight ago by 0.20 lengths. He’s got form in the wet and is ridden by Tommy Berry.
Gingernuts comes into the Guineas with fantastic form having won three races in a row. He’s been racing over in New Zealand and jockey Opie Bosson will be in the saddle again after riding his last win on Gingernuts.
Sizzling Bullet is our value bet with a 60% career winning rate. Prized Icon is another horse to look at in this race after finishing second in the Australian Guineas a fortnight ago. He has two wins in his career on wet tracks as well.
