Winter Challenge Stakes Betting Preview
August 02, 2013
The Winter Challenge Stakes at Rosehill on Saturday is the horse racing highlight of the weekend and we take a look at the leading contenders.
Under The Sun was a dominant winner in a similar grade at Rosehill a fortnight ago and currently heads the Winter Challenge Stakes betting at 3.70 with online bookmaker IASBet. On the evidence of that run Under The Sun is likley to set a fast pace and will assume a prominant position which makes for an interesting race.
Chris Waller brings Bayrir at odds of 7.25, a lightly raced Group 1 import campaigned in France, the United States and Hong Kong, winning the Group One Secretariat Stakes at Arlington before failing on the very heavy track in the Prix de I’Arc de Triomphe. Bayrir has displayed a fair amount of speed in his trials, so should provide the market leader with a test especially as he is attractively handicapped with only 5kg above the minimum.
Less is More shouldn’t be discounted off the back of a recent Brisbane campaign at 13.00 with IASBet and should have the necessary acceleration to be successful at this level.
Coup Ay Tee is another to consider at 6.25 on better terms with Under The Sun this time around along with Wazn at 9.75 and Pretty Pins at 10.50 who could all go close with a clean run.
With such a fascinating race in prospect and each horse having claims of some kind it could be a good idea to bag yourself a free bet for the race.
