2010 Doomben Roses Odds & Betting

May 21st, 2010

Tomorrow’s $175,000 Doomben Roses (2020m), known this year as the Hidden Dragon The Roses, has an open field of quality three-year-old fillies ready to fight it out in the latest fillies-only feature at the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

At the moment the pre-race favourite for the 2010 Doomben Roses is Redoute’s Choice filly Dariana, trained by the legendary Bart Cummings. Dariana has drifted from $4.20 out to $5 with Ladbrokes.com.au after drawing wide with barrier 12 for tomorrow but is still at the top of the betting markets.

The last start winner of the Group 3 Frank Packer Plate (2000m) at Randwick, Dariana is followed closely in the Doomben Roses odds by Status Quo.

The Peter Snowden-trained Lonhro filly is at $5.50 through Ladbrokes.com.au for a win after finishing in the top three at her last three starts.

Drawn in barrier eight, Status Quo has also drifted in the markets after starting at $5 as the Doomben track is likely to be soft at best following today’s rain.

Two fillies who have received recent support from the punters are Shabana and Spera despite both having drawn worse than midfield in barriers 11 and 15 respectively for the Doomben Roses.

Currently at $10 after opening at $12 odds, the Gregory Hickman-trained Shabana is coming off two successive wins but will be stepping up to 2020m for the first time.

Spera has been the biggest mover in the market, shortening from $14 in to $9 at Ladbrokes.com.au, the Kiwi filly trained by John Sargent the biggest winner with the rain affected track.

The feature race at tomorrow’s meeting will be the $500,000 Group 1 Doomben Cup (2020m) where the Chris Waller-trained Metal Bender is the current pre-race favourite.
