Despite being a maiden, Bold Arial has been the best backed at odds with Sportsbet.com.au to take out the China Horse Club Mile (1600m) this Saturday at Randwick.
The daughter of I Am Invincible is trained by the waterhouse/Bott team and gets Joao Moreira steering. She hasn’t raced for a couple of weeks since placing at Warwick Farm behind Percy Sykes favourite Pure Elation. The 1100m-1600m rise is an ask but punters are not concerned, backing her into $12 after opening $15, with some good each way bets rolling in.
Favourite for the race is Aristocratic Miss, who ran well a fortnight back over 1400m. She has been easy in early betting though, out to $4.40 from $4.20, holding the call quite comfortably over Futooh ($7.50) and Cristal Eyes ($8.00).
