It is amazing how quickly things can change in a week with La Amistad going into the Hill Stakes on Saturday in the middle of the odds at $5.

Markets opened for the Hill Stakes at Randwick on Saturday and La Amistad has opened on the fourth line of betting with Sportsbet.com.au after what was a disappointing run in the Group 3 Kingstown Town Stakes when finishing seventh less than a week ago.
La Amistad was crunched in Kingston Town betting on Saturday with her odds shortening from her opening quote of $3.50 into as low as $2.70 before easing slightly before jump. In what looks to be a more competitive field this coming Saturday, the relation of Makybe Diva will probably have to win on Saturday if she wants to hopefully secure a run in the race that stops a nation as she sits on the 72nd line of the Cup ballot.
It will be great for racing to see her in the Cup as she represents a very marketable horse but i doubt this will make her backers forgive her.
