2016 The Roses Odds and Betting Update

May 19th, 2016

A talented and capacity field of three-year-old fillies has been confirmed for Saturday’s 2016 Group 2 The Roses (2000m) at Doomben; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Imposing Lass is yet to taste anything but success this time and remains clear $4.80 favourite in 2016 The Roses betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Imposing Lass has been a strong and consistent performer for Bjorn Baker through her entire racing career so far; posting an impressive four wins and a close second place finish in only five starts.

Resuming for success in the Ranvet BM67 (1400m) on April 6th, the Makfi filly repeated the dose in the Schweppes BM78 (1500m) before breaking through for a maiden black type win in the Listed Gold Coast Bracelet (1800m) on May 7th.

Imposing Lass is sure to require luck in running from the wide barrier 18, but will be partnered by regular hoop Jason Collett, who clearly has the key to the classy filly.

Peter and Paul Snowden have a big opinion of Falkenberg, who has remained firm on the second line of 2016 The Roses betting at a $5 quote.

Charging home to win the Hawkesbury Equine Vet Maiden (1400m) first-up on February 25th, Falkenberg ran a close second to Happy Hannah in the All Too Hard BM67 (1600m) before beating a notable field to the line in the Schweppes BM67 (1600m).

Having since finished fourth in each of the Schweppes BM78 (1500m) and Gold Coast Bracelet most recently, Falkenberg could very well receive the run of the race in The Roses from barrier 6, and will be partnered by leading local hoop Damian Browne.

Punters have already rallied around Ambience since 2016 The Roses betting markets opened; seeing the talented Godolphin runner into outright third-favouritism at a quote of $6.

Resuming this time for eighth in the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m), Ambience improved for fifth in the Group 3 Arrowfield Classic (1600m), but was unable to handle the late going when tenth in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) on March 26th.

Having improved drastically for second in the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) on Day 2 of The Championships, the Street Cry filly has trialled well in the lead-up to The Roses and is more than worth consideration for a bet at current odds.

The Chris Waller-trained Chandara represents terrific value for money at $9.50 The Roses odds, while Kebede ($19) is arguably over the odds at her quote.
