A talent-rich and capacity field of 14 has been confirmed for Saturday’s featured Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Randwick Racecourse; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
First Seal was unlucky not to post a second win at the highest level through the recent Autumn Carnival but remains clear $2.90 favourite in 2015 Warwick Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au to get her spring campaign off to the best possible start.
Stamping her claims as one to watch through a 2014 Spring Carnival campaign highlighted by success in each of the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) and a close second in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m), First Seal returned this year for second in the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) on February 14th.
Posting a dominant win in the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) on February 28th, the daughter of Fastnet Rock continued to impress in placing second in each of the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) and Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m).
Allocated the ideal barrier 6, First Seal has been charged with carrying only 56.5kgs and will be partnered by notable hoop Tommy Berry.
Kermadec is interestingly yet to herald much interest in 2015 Warwick Stakes betting markets but remains sole occupant of the second line at generous $6.50 odds.
Returning in autumn for fourth in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) on February 7th, Kermadec arguably stamped himself as one to watch when finishing a close third amongst particularly classy company in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) on February 21st.
Unlucky to be blocked for a run late when fourth in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) on March 7th, the Teofilo entire ran on for a credible third amongst open company in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) on March 21st before posting an exceptional victory in the major Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on Day 1 of The Championships.
Kermadec has been confirmed to be partnered by Doncaster Mile jockey Glen Boss first-up on Saturday, and could very well receive the run of the race from barrier 7.
Punters have focused a good portion of their early attention on the Chris Waller-trained Royal Descent; seeing the consistent mare in from opening odds of $8 to register as outright third favourite in 2015 Warwick Stakes betting markets and clear market mover.
A Group 1 winner having taken out the 2013 edition of the Australian Oaks (2400m), Royal Descent was unlucky to finish second in each of the Warwick Stakes, Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m), Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) and Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) through the 2014 Spring Carnival.
Last seen boxing on for a commendable third in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) on Day 2 of The Championships, Royal Descent will leave from the ideal barrier 3 with Premiership-winning jockey Hugh Bowman aboard.
It’s Somewhat ($7.50), Burbero ($8.50) and Pornichet ($9) interestingly figure as the only other runners currently available at a quote of less-than $10 in 2015 Warwick Stakes betting markets.
