2010 Danehill Stakes Betting Lead by Star Witness

September 3rd, 2010

The betting markets for this Saturday’s $250,000 Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) at Flemington have opened with the Danny O’Brien-trained Star Witness installed as the $3.70 favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au.

After drawing ideally in barrier two, last season’s Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes winner Star Witness looks hard to beat and his odds are sure to shorten as more punters get behind him.

Two horses follow closely in 2010 Danehill Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au, with Military Rose and Soul both paying $4.80 for a win.

Magic Millions Classic winner Military Rose is resuming racing after failing to place in the Golden Slipper during the autumn, the Gillian Heinrich-trained filly drawn in barrier five.

Military Rose can win this and cause an upset at juicy odds, but if the track is rated Slow or worse she is best avoided.

Meanwhile equal second favourite Soul, trained by Peter Snowden, is coming off a solid second to Toorak Toff in the Vain Stakes and will jump from barrier eight, making him best for a Place bet at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Other top chances in the Danehill Stakes at good odds through Ladbrokes.com.au include Up and Coming Stakes second placegetter Buffering ($7) and Peter Moody’s in-form filly Storm Burst ($10).
