Randwick’s 2010 All Aged Stakes Preview & Betting

April 22nd, 2010

The prolific Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival draws to a close this Saturday at the Royal Randwick Racecourse, but it goes out with a bang as eight fantastic races form the thrilling Sydney Cup Day – with the $300,000 Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) a certain feature.

Held as the seventh race of the day, 11 top quality horses are due to jump at 4.15pm to battle it out on the track for a share in the prize money, and there are three starters battling it out as the favourite.

At this point in time, Hot Danish is heading into the 2010 All Aged Stakes as the favourite at $3.60.

At this point in time, Hot Danish is heading into the 2010 All Aged Stakes as the favourite at $3.60. Starting from barrier seven, the six-year-old mare won the Canterbury Stakes in March – but recently lost out to fellow starter on Saturday Melito in the Group 1 T J Smith Stakes (1200m) in April.

Despite having the coveted inside barrier, Melito is not a favourite among punters and has slightky longer and more lucrative odds at $6 – and could be a worthy wager.

Mic Mac and Danleigh, starting from barriers nine and 10 respectively are both even in the odds at $4, and may be the closest in form to Hot Danish.

These are the only four horses starting on Saturday to have single digit odds, with Riva San rounding out the market at $151 and starts from barrier three.

Also taking place on Saturday at the Randwick Racecourse will be the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) which headlines the day’s proceedings, the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m), the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) and the Group 3 Frank Packer Plate (2000m).
