Three time Group 1 winner Le Romain has opened favourite for Saturday’s Missile Stakes.
The Kris Lees trained five-year-old heads betting on $2.30 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au. The Randwick Group 2 attracted 14 nominations, but Le Romain is the best credentialed of the group.
Group 1 winning mare Tycoon Tara, which was second in this race last year, is second favourite at $4.20. Jungle Edge ($6.50) is the only other horse under double figures.
“Le Romain had a career best season as a four-year-old, he was second to Winx and beat Chautauqua in the BMW. He was impressive in a Newcastle barrier trial win and hasn’t been out of the money in four first-up runs,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
