Betting on the 2010 Gold Coast Guineas

May 7th, 2010

The next big feature meeting of the 2010 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival takes place at the picturesque Gold Coast Racecourse tomorrow, and the odds for the $125,000 Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) have now been released.

One of two great group races set to run at the meeting tomorrow, the 2010 Gold Coast Guineas features a capacity field and one of the most open betting markets seen in many years.

Currently two horses are battling for favouritism, Stryker and Temple Of Boom, but there are any number of other top chances both from local and interstate stables.

The Chris Waller-trained Stryker is coming off an impressive fourth place to Ortensia in the Group 1 Galaxy (1100m) at Randwick and is the favourite for the Gold Coast Guineas at the moment paying $5.50 through, despite having drawn wide in barrier 20.

Temple Of Boom, the close second favourite at $6, is based in Toowoomba and after winning last start and drawing ideally in barrier two looks a top chance tomorrow.

There are then another four horses at single figure odds who could all come away with a Gold Coast Guineas win; locally trained Deer Valley ($7) drawn well in barrier five, the Bart Cummings-trained Latin News ($7.50) in the far outside barrier but due to be ridden by star hoop Blake Shinn, Tierqualo ($8.50) on the inside in barrier three, and General Nediym filly Paprika ($8.50).

The scheduled highlight of the day is the $300,000 Group 2 Hollindale Stakes (1800m) where the hot pre-race favourite is last start Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner Road To Rock.
