A capacity field of 16 has been confirmed for a tilt at the 2014 Group 3 BRC Sprint (1350m) at Brisbane’s Doomben Racecourse, offering punters exceptional value and several key opportunities to place a winning bet.
Returning to the track in good form this season, Emblems has opened as and maintained favouritism in betting markets for success in the 2014 BRC Sprint, currently offered at even $5 odds, ahead of Someday ($6), River Lad, Benny’s Buttons and Dances On Stars; currently sharing the third line of betting at a quote of $7 each.
Will Emblems justify favouritism and win the 2014 BRC Sprint, or will one of his talented rivals cross the line in the clear?
Opening at a quote of more than $8, punters have so-far offered the largest market share of wagers for Someday, registering the five-year-old as clear market mover at current $5 odds. Claiming seven wins and seven places from 22 competitive starts to date, the Falvelon gelding has returned to the track in great form this preparation; producing a keen turn of foot to finish fourth amongst classy company in the particularly well contested Group 1 Victory Stakes (1200m) on April 26th. Allocated the ideal inside barrier, Someday has been confirmed to be partnered by regular jockey Chris Munce and is a great chance of justifying his resounding support from punters in the 2014 BRC Sprint.
Fire Up Fifi ($15)
While yet to hit peak condition over four race starts in 2014, Fire Up Fifi arguably offers punters the best value for money in betting markets for the 2014 BRC Sprint at incredible $15 odds, particularly when considering her impressive 2013 spring preparation. Comfortably winning the Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1410m) on October 5th, the Bradbury’s Luck mare continued to build in class and form; finishing third in both the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) and Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) most notably. Allocated the ideal barrier 3, Fire Up Fifi will be partnered by talented jockey Luke Nolen and is well and truly worth a bet for success in the 2014 BRC Sprint.
A two-time Group 1 champion, Solzhenitsyn offers punters sensational value for money at current $16 odds, or an even $5 to run a place. Contesting an impressive total of 11 wins and 11 places from 35 race starts, the St Petersburg gelding arguably hit career best form over the spring of 2013; claiming minor placings in both the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) before successfully defending his 2012 Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) title. While allocated the wide and awkward barrier 16, trainer Robert Heathcote is confident leading jockey Nash Rawiller will get the best from his entrant this weekend.
