Golden Slipper Odds - Sunlight holds Slipper favouritism

  • Sunlight tops the betting market
  • Written By takes an unbeaten record into the race
Sunlight

Sunlight looks set to hold favouritism for the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on Saturday when she will be bidding for a sixth straight win.

The Tony McEvoy-trained daughter of Zoustar made it five successive victories when taking out the Group 3 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) at short odds at Rosehill and she will be backing up as the $4.00 favourite (CrownBet) in the Golden Slipper.

Sunlight's winning run also includes victories in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) and Group 2 Silver Slipper (1100m), but she will come up against a talented bunch of two-year-olds on Saturday.

Grahame Begg's Written By will also be running on the seven-day back up after taking out the Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on Saturday. Winner of the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) prior to that, the son of Written Tycoon is $4.80 to maintain his perfect career record.

Performer is the $6.00 third favourite for the Slipper for trainer Chris Waller, but will have doubters having lost his unbeaten record when shipping off Hugh Bowman mid-race in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) last start.
The Jean Dubois-trained Aylmerton and Tony Gollan's Ef Troop, first and second in that Todman Stakes, are $15 and $13 for the Slipper respectively. 

Ahead of that pair in the betting are Estijaab ($8.50), Santos ($9.00) and Seabrook ($9.00).

Team Hawkes filly Estijaab was second to Sunlight in the Silver Slipper before winning the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) two weeks ago, while the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Santos warmed up for this with successive wins, the most recent coming in the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m). 

Seabrook, trained by Mick Price, also won his last start having landed the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) from Fiesta, a $21 chance for the Slipper.
