This Saturday November 27th Ascot Racecourse will host the 2010 Winterbottom Stakes, the second major feature of the Festival of Perth Racing, and the updated odds following the release of the final field and barrier draw for the sprint showdown are now open.
Whitefriars remains the favourite to win the $750,000 Group 2 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) after Rick Worthington’s classy Sydney galloper drew ideally in barrier three.
Winner of the Group 2 Salinger Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day, Whitefriars is paying $4.60 through Luxbet in the Winterbottom Stakes odds but has a tough test carrying a hefty 6kg more than their last start.
Hot on Whitefriars’ heels in the betting is $5 second favourite Waratah’s Secret, the David Harrison-trained four-year-old coming off an eye-catching second to Ma Ma Machine in the Group 3 Colonel Reeves Stakes (1100m) before which they took out the Group 3 Prince of Wales Stakes (1200m).
Due to jump from the prized barrier one on Saturday, Waratah’s Secret will be ridden by regular jockey Paul Harvey and should find the weight no issue having won the Prince of Wales Stakes carrying 58.5kg.
Other top picks from the Winterbottom Stakes field this year include Marasco ($6.50) tipped to improve second up and one of the only runners to be dropping back in weights on Saturday, last year’s second placegetter Idyllic Prince ($12) who has been in consistent form again this season finishing runner-up to Waratah’s Secret in the Prince of Wales Stakes before running a strong fourth to Famous Roman in the Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) last start, and Colonel Reeves Stakes third placegetter King Kool Kat ($13).
For extra value punters should look at some of the roughies with good form to add into the exotics including Neville Parnham’s improving six-year-old Elliotto at a very generous $51 and Hussonet gelding Werd at $26.
Scheduled as Race 7 on the Saturday race card at Ascot, the 2010 Burswood Winterbottom Stakes is due to jump at 3:45pm (local WA time).
