Betting markets have been released for the 2012 Coolmore Classic, which is due to run at Rosehill Racecourse Saturday March 24, 2012.
Streama is favourite to win the 2012 Coolmore Classic and is paying odds of $3.30 at bookmaker.com.au.
The three-year-old won her last start in the Group 2 Surround Stakes and will be looking to recreate that effort against the older mares in the 2012 Coolmore Classic.
Trainer Guy Walter is unhappy with the weight of 55 kilograms given to Streama in the 2012 Coolmore Classic and her barrier draw of nine for the race.
“It is a huge test for her, she has only ever beaten horses of her own age and sex,” Walter said.
“In my opinion she is harshly weighted, I would have thought she could have got half to a kilogram less.
“The barrier isn’t the best either.”
Steps In Time is second favourite in the 2012 Coolmore Classic betting at $4.20 at bookmaker.com.au, while King’s Rose and Red Tracer are tied on the third line of betting at $6.50.
Secret Admirer is on the fifth line of 2012 Coolmore Classic betting at bookmaker.com.au, paying odds of $10, despite trainer Grahame Begg feeling she is more than up to the challenge.
“She’s in good shape,” Begg said.
“It is tough. It’s never easy and they don’t give them (Group Ones) away.
“(But) I suppose she deserves that weight. She is a dual Group One winner.”
The least backed runner in the 2012 Coolmore Classic field is presently Tomboy, who is paying odds of $81 to win the race at bookmaker.com.au.
