Having returned to the races in slick form this time in, smart filly Bring Me The Maid has opened as and maintained status as favourite for success in the 2014 Golden Rose Stakes, currently available at odds of $3.80 with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Charging home to win the Listed Sports 1000 (1000m) on debut, Bring Me The Maid was unlucky to be blocked for a run in the final straight and third in the Listed St Albans Stakes (1200m) on March 14th, but responded in impressive fashion; taking out the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) before placing third in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) just a week later.

Securing a comfortable win the in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) first-up on August 23rd, trainer Peter Moody is confident retaining jockey Luke Nolen will get the best from his leading entrant, who is more than worth consideration for a Golden Rose bet from barrier 6.

Yet to receive much more than a sprinkling of wagers for success in 2014 Golden Rose betting markets, Bart and James Cummings-trained Hallowed Crown’s chances took a slight hit when allocated barrier 14, however is still worth consideration for a wager.

Yet to be defeated over three impressive performances, Hallowed Crown won a maiden over 1150m on debut before more than stamping himself as a serious contender when winning the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m) on April 12th.

Returning with another comfortable win in the Group 3 The Run To The Rose (1200m) on August 30th, James Cummings is confident the Street Sense colt has the class to replicate the efforts of 2013 champion Zoustar and win from a wide and awkward draw.

Also returning to racing in commendable form this time in, Peter Moody’s second runner Better Land is currently offered as outright third favourite for success in the 2014 Golden Rose Stakes, but will have to overcome barrier 10 if to secure a maiden black type victory.

Winning a minor at Sale over 1100m on debut in April, the Shamardal colt finished a close second to fellow Golden Rose acceptor Scissor Kick in the Listed Rosebud (1200m) on August 9th before finishing an unlucky fourth when blocked for a run in the final straight of the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) on August 23rd.

Confirmed to be partnered by renowned jockey Blake Shinn, punters may find value in adding Better Land as an option in a Trifecta.
