Trainer John O’Shea and his powerful Godolphin stable look like they’ve got their foot in this year’s Golden Slipper with at least 8 genuine winning chances including the top two in betting, Ottoman ($9.00) and Furnaces ($10).
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au is offering punters the chance to back any Godolphin horse to take out the richest race in the world for two-year-olds, with $4.60 currently available.
Calaverite ($21), Chamarel ($26) and last Saturday’s impressive first start winner Holler ($26) are among the star crop but according to O’Shea, there are more to come.
“Godolphin have been a dominant force so far, winning eight two-year-old races to date. Ottoman and Furnaces are the two best backed runners in the Slipper market, and we’re about to get our first look at the highly rated Haptic this Saturday,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
