The Winter Stakes (1400m) looks an absolute lottery on paper and that’s reflected in the market for the feature race at Rosehill this Saturday.
Heading the market is Eckstein at $5, who drops a fair bit in grade/depth from her recent runs. She heads betting over Firsthand, who has firmed in half a point from $6. Organza is at $7 but is also accepted for Caulfield.
There has been specking for several at odds, including the resuming Stampede ($26-$13), New Tipperary ($15-$13) and Goodfella ($26-$17), who goes to show how tough this race is for punters.
