2010 Premiere Stakes Final Field & Betting Preview

September 17th, 2010

This Saturday Rosehill Racecourse will host their next major race meeting of the Sydney Spring Carnival featuring five sensational Group races including the $175,000 Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m).

The 2010 Rydges Cronulla Premiere Stakes has drawn a diminutive but top class final field of just eight weight-for-age runners headlined by the pronounced favourite in the odds, Hot Danish.

Les Bridge’s seven-year-old Nothin’ Leica Dane mare Hot Danish is currently at the very short quote of $1.55 through Sportsbet to win on Saturday, as she resumes racing.

Hinchinbrook is an ideal light-weight chance that can win the 2010 Premiere Stakes at good odds through Ladbrokes.com.au

Hot Danish had a spectacular autumn campaign winning dual Group 1 races with victories in the All Aged Stakes and Doomben 10,000.

Coming off a successful barrier trial, Hot Danish will be ridden first-up by regular jockey Tim Clark on Saturday jumping from barrier four and will be hard to beat.

The other horse the punters are getting behind in the Premiere Stakes betting is Hinchinbrook.

Ideally drawn in barrier two, Gerald Ryan’s Fastnet Rock colt is an excellent light-weight chance having to carry just 52kg.

Hinchinbrook last ran in the Heritage Stakes finishing third to Decision Time and is sure to improve again on Saturday.

Other notable 2010 Premiere Stakes contenders include Redoute’s Choice four-year-old Tickets resuming racing and Anthony Cummings’ consistent galloper Trader.

The 2010 Rydges Cronulla Premiere Stakes is scheduled as the third race on the card and is due to jump at 2:05pm on Saturday.

Other feature events at Rosehill on Saturday worth a punt on include the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1500m) for fillies, Group 2 Hill Stakes (1900m) featuring Chris Waller’s Triple Honour and Hawk Island, and the Group 2 Shannon Stakes (1500m) where Neeson will start the favourite.

But don’t bet on any of these races! Not until you take five minutes to sign up with Ladbrokes.com.au, where you are guaranteed to get better odds than at the TAB and will also receive a generous free $300 bet as a new customer!
