Vancouver Steady Despite Poor Slipper Barrier

Friday, 20th March 2015

Even though he has drawn an extremely wide marble (18) for tomorrow's Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, exciting 2YO colt Vancouver (Medaglia d'Oro-Skates, by Danehill) is still a strong $3 favourite with bookmakers. The Gai Waterhouse-trained juvenile remained undefeated after three starts when beating a high quality field with relative ease in the Gr2 Todman Stakes two weeks ago. The main protagonists in the Slipper market include: Vancouver ($3), Exosphere ($4), Headwater ($12), Ready For Victory ($13), Furnaces ($14), Haptic ($15), English ($17) & Lake Geneva ($18). Those looking for lottery-like returns will find four runners at 3-figure odds: Look To The Stars ($101), Serenade ($101), Racy ($151) & Heavenly Hand ($301).
