13 of the country’s standout fillies and mares have been confirmed for Saturday’s featured Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
First Seal has been a standout performer since debuting for trainer John Thompson last year, and has understandably opened as and maintained status as clear favourite in 2015 Coolmore Classic betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au; currently available at a quote of $1.80 for success.
Finishing outside the places just once in her eight career starts so far, First Seal quickly stamped her claims as one to watch when running second Sweynesse in the TAB Early Quaddie Handicap (1400m) before taking out each of the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m).
Having returned to the paddock after placing second in the Group 2 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) on October 11th, the daughter of Fastnet Rock placed second in the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) first-up this time before posting a commanding win in the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) a fortnight ago.
Plucky Belle was unlucky not to beat Catkins to the line in the Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1400m) on February 21st, and as a result has maintained status as outright second-favourite for success in 2015 Coolmore Classic betting markets at a particularly generous quote of $11 for success.
Securing four wins and five minor place finishes from her 24 career starts so far, Plucky Belle returned to racing in competitive form over the 2014 autumn and was unlucky to finish second when hampered in each of the Group 3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Darley Crown (1300m).
Placing sixth in the Group 2 Breeders’ Classic (1200m) leading into her Millie Fox Stakes second, the Mossman mare has been charged with carrying just 53kgs and will leave from the central barrier 8 in the 2015 Coolmore Classic.
Thump and Mahara are each yet to attract much more than a sprinkling of bets for success in 2014 Coolmore Classic markets, but remain tied on the third line of betting at a quote of $13 each.
Thump was retired into a career as a broodmare following a hapless spring preparation, but has returned to racing in exceptional form this year; taking out the Group 3 Triscay Stakes (1200m) first-up before running a credible sixth in the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m) last time out.
Ending her 2014 campaign with success in the Group 3 Hong Kong Jockey Club Stakes (1400m), Mahara has quickly built to the task this time in and appears primed for 2015 Coolmore Classic success after finishing fifth in the Triscay Stakes first-up and third in the Group 3 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) a fortnight ago.
