2011 Golden Rose Odds To Dictate Caulfield Guineas Markets

September 9th, 2011

With the $1 million Golden Rose set to take place at Rosehill Racecourse tomorrow September 10, 2011, the outcome is sure to affect the betting markets of the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas on October 8.

Smart Missile, who is the current $2 favourite for the Golden Rose 2011 at Luxbet, is also the $4.60 early favourite for the $1 million Caulfield Guineas.

The three-year-old Fastnet Rock colt won his first-up run in the Group 3 Run To The Rose last month and trainer Anthony Cummings believes he has continued to improve since that race.

“He’s taken good improvement from his first up run, which was an exceptional performance as we all know, and he goes into this race fit and well and ready to win,” Cummings said.

This will be Smart Missile’s first second-up start of his career.

“He’s three first-up runs for three wins, so it’ll be nice to see what he can do second up,” Cummings said.

“The 1400 is a natural question mark given the shape and nature of his pedigree but, equally, the shape and nature of the horse really suggests that he’ll run a mile, maybe even a mile and a quarter.”

Close challenger in the 2011 Golden Rose odds is Peter Snowden’s Helmet, who is paying odds of $3.60 to win the race at Luxbet.

Snowden was happy with Helmet’s third place behind Smart Missile and Foxwedge in the Run To The Rose.

“I was over the moon with his first-up start, I thought he went sensational,” Snowden said.

“In my mind I’ve always had him geared towards the Caulfield Guineas, I was just going to use the races to top him off each time.

“His first run was excellent, better than I thought it would be, and he’s taken significant improvement from that run so I’m quietly confident he’ll run well tomorrow.”

Foxwedge has not moved in the 2011 Golden Rose betting odds and is paying $9 to win the race at Luxbet.
