A talented field of ten has been confirmed for Saturday’s featured Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Kermadec is a proven performer over course, distance and at the grade and has opened as and maintained status as outright $3 favourite in 2015 George Main Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
Posting three wins and four minors through ten career starts so far, Kermadec returned this year for fourth in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m); progressing to third in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) before a luckless run for fourth in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) on March 7th.
Running on for third in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) on March 7th, the Teofilo entire produced a monumental turn of foot in the final straight at Randwick to take out the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on Day 1 of The Championships.
Having placed fifth in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) and second in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) this time, Kermadec is primed for success in the 2015 George Main Stakes and arguably offers punters the best value for money as a selection in a quinella or trifecta bet.
Royal Descent has so-far received the greatest market share of wagers for success in 2015 George Main Stakes markets; cutting in from an opening quote of $4.80 to currently register as outright $4.40 second favourite and clear market mover.
The popular mare was unlucky not to return to the winner’s circle through a strong 2014 Spring Carnival campaign; amazingly running second in each of the Warwick Stakes, Chelmsford Stakes, George Main Stakes and Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) in succession.
Having returned this time for success in the Warwick Stakes before boxing on for third in the Chelmsford, trainer Chris Waller is thrilled with the condition of the Redoute’s Choice mare, who will jump from barrier 7 with Hugh Bowman aboard.
Lucia Valentina savaged the line for sixth in the Group 2 Tramway Stakes (1400m) first-up a fortnight ago and will have taken plenty of condition from the run ahead of the George Main Stakes.
A two-time Group 1 winner, the Savabeel mare was unable to return to peak condition through the recent Autumn Carnival, but could very well receive the run of the race on Saturday from the ideal barrier 3.
Brenton Avdulla has been confirmed to take the ride on the mare who arguably offers punters the best value for money in 2015 George Main Stakes markets at current $6.50 for success.
Pornichet ($7) interestingly figures as the only other runner currently available at a quote of less-than $10 in 2015 George Main Stakes betting markets, while Hooked ($13) and Sweynesse ($13) are both more than worth consideration at double figure odds.
