Gary Portellic‘s Todman Stakes winner Sejardan is the best fantasized of the foals taking recurring favourite coolangatta in Saturday’s highly anticipated Group 1 $5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at rosehill†
The gamblers’ money is undefeated Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained Written Tycoon filly Coolangatta to freshly beat the world’s richest youth race and make his way into the history books.
The bonny bay is three-of-three so far, already a double Group 3 winner and last seen as the contender in the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) on the Gold Coast in mid-January.
No Magic Millions Classic winner has won the Slipper without another run-up, but the team gave Coolangatta fresh as she tried to do the double.
Pulled out in barrier 14 pre-scratchings with ace Sydney-based hoop James McDonald to ride, the well-supported filly costs $4.50 at the latest Golden Slipper Gambling Markets at Ladbrokes.com.au.
There may be a capacity Golden slipper field gathered for Saturday’s $5 million showdown, but only three other youngsters join the under $10 favorite in betting.
The second $7 chosen one is the aforementioned Sejardan in gate seven with the in-form Jason Collette to drive.
Beaten only once in his four previous commissions, the well-bred son of Sebring won the Group 3 Breeders’ Plate and $1 million Golden Gift in the spring.
He improved to a first-up third place finish in the $2 million Inglis Millennium as he returned to winning form on a Heavy (10) Randwick track in the Todman Stakes, a race that has seen many recent Golden Slipper winners†
Farnan (2020) was the last to do the double and while he relaxed somewhat from his opening quote, Sejardan remains a solid chance to be next.
Another final starting winner to be kept safe in Golden Slipper betting this season is the Anthony cummings-trained Extreme Choice filly, she is extreme at a fixed price of $8.50.
Cummings is locked up Brett Prebble to replace Tommy Berry aboard the winner of last weekend’s Group 3 Magic Night Stakes on the track/distance.
Fit and ready to fire on the quick backup, She’s Extreme is favorably drawn into barrier six, chasing the double most recently achieved by Kiamichi (2019).
Rounding out the single-digit Slipper hopes from $8 to $9 is the Kacy Fogden-trained The best of Bordeauxanother undefeated hope looking to stay so come Saturday afternoon.
The forward-thinking Snitzel colt is two-of-two ahead of his Group 1 test, with both his run-up runs being fast performances at Rosehill.
On his debut, he defeated his rivals in the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) by over four and a half heights and was impressive again beating Magic in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) on 19th February.
He hasn’t raced since but was good at winning a Warwick Farm hit on March 11 to get him fit and the speed demon’s trainer is confident he can win, and not just up front.
the early Market mover Golden Slipper supported from $31 to $21 meanwhile, the Team Hawkes-trained Sebonack being ridden by William Pike†
Drawn out of the favorites in gate 15, the capitalist colt was a Group 3 Caulfield winner on his debut in early February, finishing in close fourth in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).
Whether that Melbourne form line is the one that follows north to the Slipper is open to question, but for the price, there are a few punters who consider it the potential value runner.
Other Notable Golden Slipper Market Movers include: Blue Diamond placed third Jacquinot ($14 to $12), Peter & Paul Snowden’s filly Revolutionary Miss ($20 into $16) who came in second in the same run-up to Melbourne and the much sought-after winner of Reisling Stakes seven veils ($31 into $26).
