A talented field of just eight runners has been confirmed for Saturday’s Listed Razor Sharp Handicap (1200m) at Randwick Racecourse, offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Having returned to racing in typically scintillating form this season, talented sprinter Our Boy Malachi has understandably opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in 2014 Razor Sharp Handicap betting markets, currently available at odds of $1.85 for success with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Claiming fifteen wins and a one second place finish over his 17 competitive starts so far, Our Boy Malachi began his racing career under the guidance of Rockhampton-based trainer John O’Sing before transferring to the care of Team Hawkes at the beginning of the season.

Charging home to beat a classy field to the line in the Turner Freeman Lawyers Handicap (1100m) first-up on November 1st, the Top Echelon gelding made a successful transition to Sydney black type racing when taking out the Listed Starlight Stakes (1100m) by two lengths last time out.

Allocated the ideal barrier 3, Our Boy Malachi is more than worth consideration for a bet at current odds.

Interestingly figuring as the only other runner currently offered at odds of less-than $10 for success in the 2014 Razor Sharp Handicap, Dothraki has returned to racing in excellent form this year and will be aiming to close his year on a high in the 2014 Razor Sharp Handicap.

Opening at a quote of $4 for success this weekend, punters have rallied around trainer Gerald Ryan’s sole entrant, seeing his odds cut in noticeably to currently feature as outright $3.70 second favourite and market mover.

A standout over the winter carnival, Dothraki ran a credible third in the Listed Gosford Guineas (1200m) first-up; progressing to fifth in the Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes (1200m) in Sydney before travelling to Queensland for an impressive victory in the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) on May 3rd.

Running third in the Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) before a luckless run for eighth in the Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1400m) on May 31st, the Mossman gelding finished second in a minor over 1200m first-up this time; returning to the winner’s circle in the Whyte & Gilmour 3.y.o+ (1100m) before placing second in the Starlight Stakes last time out.

Yet to receive much more than a sprinkling of bets for success in Razor Sharp Handicap markets, Howmuchdoyouloveme has found great form via two strong barrier trial wins over the last few weeks and arguably offers punters the best value for money at even $10 for success.

Claiming seven wins and a further three minor places from his 20 competitive appearances on course so far, the Written Tycoon gelding was unable to make much of an impact over two winter starts this year, but is offered a good chance of a first-up win in the 2014 Razor Sharp Handicap from the ideal barrier 1.
