2015 San Domenico Stakes Tips and Betting Preview

August 13th, 2015

A talented field of eight has been confirmed for Saturday’s featured Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Vancouver is yet to taste anything but success through an impressive racing career and has maintained status as clear $2.40 favourite in 2015 San Domenico Stakes betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of Redzel ($4.80) and Japonisme ($5.50).

Will Vancouver justify favouritism and win the 2015 San Domenico Stakes or will one of his talented rivals find the line in the clear?

1st

Vancouver ($2.40)

Vancouver is without doubt the class horse of the 2015 San Domenico Stakes final field, will be partnered by leading hoop Tommy Berry and offers exceptional value for money at current $2.40 odds to win on Saturday. Debuting for success in the Listed Thoroughbred Breeders’ Plate (1000m) in October, the Medaglia D’Oro colt returned this year for success in the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) on January 31st; progressing to a standout win in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) before concluding his campaign with success in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) on March 21st.

2nd

Headwater ($9)

Team Hawkes runner Headwater has reportedly taken huge benefit from his time away from racing and arguably offers punters the best value for money at current $9 odds for success or $2.40 to finish in the first three in the 2015 San Domenico Stakes. Posting a standout win in the Group 2 Silver Slipper (1200m), the son of Exceed And Excel was disappointing when fading late and third in the Todman Stakes but ended his campaign a credible fifth in the Golden Slipper. Blake Shinn has been booked to take the ride on Headwater, who will need some luck from the outside barrier.

3rd

Haptic ($8.50)

A leading chance of black type success for Godolphin Australia this season, Haptic will leave from the ideal barrier 3 in the San Domenico Stakes with in-form hoop Sam Clipperton aboard, and offers punters great value for money at current odds. Winning his first two competitive starts including the talent-rich Listed Lonhro Plate (1100m), the Exceed And Excel gelding failed to make anything of an impact in the Golden Slipper but won a strong Randwick barrier trial on July 31st.
