Golden Slipper Form Guide & Tips
Yes Yes Yes (Best Bet – $8) Bet Now
Has drifted with the weather forecast but brings in great form consisting of three wins and one second placing.
The Chris Waller-trained colt scored impressively at Randwick last start and he handled the conditions on that occasion, so no reason why he couldn’t again.
Microphone ($7.50) Bet Now
Another runner with three wins from four starts and there’s no denying his talent, but drawing the inside barrier could pose some problems.
Hugh Bowman will likely try find his way to the middle of the track but the damage could have been done earlier in the race.
No surprises if he wins, but is up against it here.
Time To Reign (Best Each Way – $14) Bet Now
Enigmatic type which produced an amazing win and then follows it up with a shocker, which is what happened last start.
He owns good ability in the wet and we’re prepared to look past his last start sixth behind Yes Yes Yes.
His odds have firmed in from an opening quote of $16.
Free Of Debt ($35) Bet Now
Hasn’t done much wrong in three starts, winning two and running third in the Blue Diamond Stakes last start. He has been primed with a 3.3-length trial win at Randwick and he could be an underrated type.
Bred to handle conditions so don’t underestimate.
Cosmic Force ($4.50) Bet Now
The best-backed runner of the field after he posted a 7.3-length win in the Pago Pago Stakes last start. That came in the wet and he really powered through it.
Meets a harder field here but jockey James McDonald wished he could get off Tenley to ride this horse, but the fortune goes to Mark Zahra.
Looms as a major winning threat.
Dubious ($27) Bet Now
Winner of a half-million which hasn’t run out of the money in four career starts. Third behind Yes Yes Yes last start and it’s hard to see him turning the tables.
Place chance looks best.
Lyre ($12) Bet Now
Blue Diamond winner which has gone to another level winning her last three starts. Won a trial at Randwick by two lengths to prepare for this and she’s a winning hope.
Just needs to handle the wet track to go well again.
Lankan Star ($51) Bet Now
Didn’t run well last start when 10th behind Kiamichi and that form doesn’t look the strongest for this.
Tenley ($6) Bet Now
Unbeaten from three runs and she has looked good in doing so. The James Cummings-trained filly powered to the line when winning by 1.5 lengths at Randwick last start.
She is the top pick of the Godolphin stable and if she handles the conditions, they might be struggling to keep up with her.
$6 is a fair price.
Pin Sec ($15) Bet Now
Unbeaten from two starts and she’s another strong chance for the Cummings stable. The filly by Lonhro scored narrowly on debut before putting four lengths on her rivals at Canberra.
Unsure how Canberra form will stack up here but she adds some interest.
Anaheed ($20) Bet Now
Didn’t run her best last start and she looked a little small. That doesn’t bode well for a big field like this and she would need to improve significantly to win.
Kiamichi ($35) Bet Now
Scored an upset win at Rosehill last start and having that experience is good. She scored by a solid margin and there were gaps in the field, which is always a good form reference.
Drawn wide but that’s not the worst place to be.
Catch Me ($41) Bet Now
Last two runs have been poor after showing good early form. Recent trial winner but a win would be a big upset.
Vincere Volare ($35) Bet Now
Two lengths behind Tenley last start and it’s tough to see her make up that margin in a much harder race.
Has speed but look for something easier.
Exhilarates ($20) Bet Now
Magic Millions winner which has run well since and possesses a good turn-of-foot. That’s her biggest asset but untried on the wet ground.
Should finish strongly.
Loving Gaby (Best Roughie – $17) Bet Now
Won on debut at Caulfield before finishing sixth in the Blue Diamond Stakes. Scored a recent trial win at Randwick by 2.3 lengths and she could be the dark horse of this field.
Drawn to get to the outside and finish with authority.
Bivouac ($61) Bet Now
1.8 lengths behind Yes Yes Yes last time out and he would need something special to happen in order to win.
Looks held and the odds suggest that.
Rome ($101) Bet Now
Yet to win a race from three starts and he ran four lengths behind Pin Sec last time out.
Unlikely to take this out.
Bellevue Hill ($31) Bet Now
Ran very nicely when winning on debut at Canberra by 5.3 lengths before running second behind Yes Yes Yes in the Todman Stakes.
Interesting runner and is worth keeping an eye on.
