2010 The Shorts Preview

September 30th, 2010

The Group 2 sprint The Shorts will be run on Saturday during Epsom Handicap Day, with 11 horses entered in the event.

Hot Danish is top of the odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, with odds of $1.70 to win. She manages to be such a strong favourite despite a barrier 8 draw as she is coming off a Premiere Stakes win that continued her win streak after a short break.

The closest to Hot Danish in the odds is Dao Dao (barrier 4) at $8.00 and Albert the Fat (barrier 11) at $8.50. Both horses are coming off a break, but Albert the Fat has the advantage of a Group 1 BTC Cup win in May. The bad barrier draw pushes him back in the odds, though, as does his carrying the heaviest weight at 58kg.
