Following the action of the Group 1 Railway Stakes this Saturday November 20 at Ascot Racecourse, the Perth Racing Festival continues the following weekend with the 2010 Winterbottom Stakes and the early odds for the feature sprint showdown are now out.
Punters can get in now and lock their favourites to win the $750,000 Group 2 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at generous early odds through Luxbet before the final field is released next week and the race runs on Saturday November 27.
Defending champion Ortensia has opened as the $4 favourite in the Winterbottom Stakes betting markets, Tony Noonan’s classy Testa Rossa mare showing promise having resumed racing with a first-up third to Black Caviar in the Group 1 Patinack Classic (1200m) at Flemington on November 6.
Battling for favouritism in the Winterbottom Stakes odds this year with Ortensia is Waratha’s Secret, trailing closely at $4.20.
David Harrison’s in-form gelding Warataha’s Secret has captured the punters’ attention after winning the Prince of Wales Stakes (1200m) here on October 23 before running an eye-catching second to Ma Ma Machine in the Colonel Reeves Stakes (1100m) last start.
Adam Durrant’s Colonel Reeves Stakes winner Ma Ma Machine is currently at double figure odds to win the Winterbottom Stakes paying $13 and looks an excellent early value pick, as does WA Guineas third placegetter Hoegaarden who could sneak into the field and is at $101!
Other early favourites at single figure odds include Rick Worthington’s consistent Salinger Stakes’ winner Whitefriars ($7), the Mick Price-trained Victorian galloper True Persuasion ($8) by boom sire Bel Esprit and Idyllic Prince ($9) who ran second to Ortensia in the Winterbottom Stakes last year.
Twenty-seven horses are still heading towards the 2010 Winterbottom Stakes, the final field of starters to be announced early next week and published here.
