Samaready trained by Mick Price is the clear $2.60 favourite for the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes worth $3.5million dollars. She won the Blue Diamond Stakes in Melbourne and hopes to do what Sepoy did last year by winning the Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper double. Punters feel she is the horse to beat in the race and thus she has been kept very safe in the market.

Golden Slipper Tips: Samaready is the clear favourite heading into the race at $2.60, she is coming off a good win in the Reisling Stakes but looks to have plenty of upside from that run. She won the Blue Diamond Stakes in Melbourne by lengths and looks the quality horse in the race, the only query is the 11 barrier. She goes into the race at $2.60 in Golden Slipper Betting and she looks the one to beat in the Golden Slipper 2012.
