The Rosehill Gardens Racecourse will be host to nine exciting races this Saturday as part of its Rosehill Guineas Day, and odds are hotting up for the illustrious Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m).
With 13 horses starting the race and competing over the 1,500 metre distance, the Ajax Stakes will begin at 3.30pm with the first to cross the line leaving the grounds with $97,500.
Just a couple of days away and it seems the starter to contend with is Rock Kingdom with odds of $3.40. The Gai Waterhouse-trained gelding is starting from the widest barrier, and not having won any starts this year, could be a dead bet.
Centennial Park, starting from the fourth barrier at $5, has performed steadily this year – however not having had any wins to his name recently is looking for his first top-spot finish for 2010.
Closing out the odds for the top three contenders in the Ajax Stakes is Brilliant Light at $5.50 – good odds for the gelding.
Closing out the odds for the top three contenders in the Ajax Stakes is Brilliant Light at $5.50 – good odds for the gelding. The four-year-old has had three strong runs recently, of which he has won two and finished as runner up in the third – making the odds seem rather beneficial to the punter.
Debuting in Sydney at the 2010 Ajax Stakes is Basaltico starting at $101. While the odds are certainly long, the gelding has only run once this year – albeit a disappointing seventh in the Geelong Cup, he could be an underdog after several impressive wins in the northern hemisphere.
