San Domenico Stakes 2011 Betting Odds & Tips

August 12th, 2011

Betting markets for the 2011 San Domenico Stakes and all the other exciting Rosehill races this Saturday have been released, the John O’Shea-trained Foxwedge leading the odds for the early Sydney Spring Carnival feature.

The resuming son of Fastnet Rock, who last ran seventh behind Peter Snowden’s superstar Sepoy on the prestigious Golden Slipper in April, is the firming favourite to win the $125,000 Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) through Luxbet.

Fontelina is a double-figure outsider in the San Domenico Stakes odds that could be the best value Luxbet pick of the day!

Having won a barrier trial at Rosehill last week, Foxwedge opened at the top of the San Domenico Stakes odds yesterday at a quote of $2.35.

Overnight big money bets continue to roll in on the 2011 Golden Rose-bound galloper, and Foxwedge is now paying $2.10 through Luxbet in the Rosehill Race 5 odds for Saturday.

Jockey Nash Rawiller has the mount on Foxwedge and believes the San Domenico Stakes is there’s to win.

“I’ve got a lot of time for him, his trials have been nice and I’m looking forward to Saturday,” Rawiller said.

“I reckon he’s a high-class colt and Saturday’s race looks like a really nice race for him to kick-off in.”

While Foxwedge is the most highly-spruiked of the seven horses in the 2011 San Domenico Stakes field, there are plenty of other contenders with genuine claims at generous odds through Luxbet.

There are three other runners at single-figure odds in the San Domenico markets with Karuta Queen ($3.70), Anise ($6) and Hollyweird ($8) the next best fancied at Luxbet.

Drawn nicely in gate two, the Gerald Ryan-trained Hollyweird looks to have a nice chance over the distance.

“She’s got a lot of natural ability, she’s only little but she’s got good speed and she can ‘possie’ up from the barrier…she’ll run an honest race,” Ryan said.

Meanwhile a double-figure outsider in the San Domenico odds that could be the best value Luxbet bet of the day is the Anthony Cummings-trained Fontelina paying $15.

Fontelina resumes after a dismal dead-last finish in the Group 1 TJ Smith at Eagle Farm, but Cummings reports they are back to full fitness and ready to give the favourites a run for their money from his inside alley.

“I expect him to be back to his best for first-up on Saturday,” Cummings said.

“He worked nicely on Tuesday morning, I’m pleased with him and he’ll be going into that race and be a good chance.

“He was quite fresh the other day in his trial and he’s well enough to run a good race.”
