The field for the 2021 Golden Slipper has been announced and we have a quality bunch of gallopers set to line-up in this years edition of the first of the ‘Big Four’ of Australian racing.

We take a look at each of the 16 horses in the Golden Slipper and we provide Video Form for each of them.

The best way to find the Golden Slipper winner is to watch each of the horses lead-up runs heading into the race and luckily for you we have done all the hard work to find these races and list them below.

Market 💰: View the Odds for the Golden Slipper

 

 

1. Shaquero

Odds: $31.00
Breeding: Shalaa x Fimatino
Trainer: Chris Waller
Jockey: Kerrin McEvoy
Barrier: 15
Career Stats: 6: 3-1-0
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1000m/1200m
Career Best Win: Magic Millions Classic, January 16 2021, Gold Coast, Good Surface
Dry Track Stats: 4: 3-0-0
Wet Track Stats: 2: 0-1-0
Short Summary: Won the Magic Millions on the seven day back up…but the gate makes it very tough.
Magic Millions Classic (1200m), January 16 2021, Gold Coast, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

He was somewhat unwanted in betting given seven days prior, he ran second in a Prelude to this race where they ran slower time than the Fillies. But he bounced off the run and bolted up under a great steer from Bowman. But, the form has been terrible since, with Shaquero being the lone future winner.

Pago Pago Stakes (1200m), March 13 2021, Rosehill, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Showed good ticker to win this. Got into a lovely spot under McEvoy and once the split came, he surged, hit the front and was able to hold on. They ran a couple of lengths faster time than the girls in the Magic Night, but relative to the day overall, it was nothing flash.

Final Summary: If the track was dry and he drew soft, he’d be a winning threat. But, wet track and drawn wide, it just looks an awful set up for him. The positive for him is that he did parade prior to the Pago Pago with improvement to come.

 

2. Profiteer

Odds: $3.60
Breeding: Capitalist x Athena Lass
Trainer: Mick Price/Michael Kent
Jockey: Hugh Bowman
Barrier:
Career Stats: 3: 2-1-0
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1100m/1100m
Career Best Win: Inglis Millennium, February 6 2021, Randwick, Soft Surface
Dry Track Stats: 2: 1-1-0
Wet Track Stats: 1: 1-0-0
Short Summary: Yes, can get keen in the run, but I still feel he’s the one to beat.
Inglis Millennium (1100m), February 6 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

Sustained speed from the front is a great recipe and that was on display here with thus guy. As a whole, he beat camels, but he properly beat them up and was impressive, much like his debut win. But, no future winners to come from it at this stage.

Todman Stakes (1200m), March 6 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

I thought this run was outstanding in defeat. He was off a month break, went very keen in front, was fresh but still kicked on strongly and really, was only nabbed late by Anamoe, who had a suck run behind and got a dream split.

Final Summary: Where does the pressure come from re the lead? It’s a Golden Slipper, so you’d think someone will roll the dice in going forward, but this guy should get a sweet run in transit. The stable and rider are talking him up big time, he has improvement to come, will be out of trouble…if he relaxes in the run, I think he wins.

3. Artorius

Odds: $11.00
Breeding: Flying Artie x Gracie’s Lass
Trainer: Anthony & Sam Freedman
Jockey: Luke Currie
Barrier: 13
Career Stats: 3: 2-1-0
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1200m/1300m
Career Best Win: Blue Diamond, February 20 2021, Caulfield, Good Surface
Dry Track Stats: 2: 2-0-0
Wet Track Stats: 1: 0-1-0
Short Summary: He’s a leading contender. Just doesn’t want to be conceding too much head start.
Blue Diamond (1200m), February 20 2021, Caulfield, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

This was a sensational win. Got back in the run and looked in a bit of trouble but once he got clear air, he surged hard late and wore down Ingratiating in the final couple of strides. Form out of the Blue Diamond has stood up in Sydney.

Trial (1050m), March 11 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Trials are trials and he’s a good horse, so expected to trial well, and that he did. Sort of half crabbed around the turn but balanced up and hit the line strongly in what was a good piece of work to tune him up for this assignment.

Final Summary: It takes a special juvenile to do the big double. As a whole, this 2YO bunch don’t look special and they have taken turns in winning the lead up races. He’ll be strong late…but how much start will he concede from the draw?

4. Ingratiating

Odds: $16.00
Breeding: Frosted x Obsequious
Trainer: James Cummings
Jockey: 
Barrier: 11
Career Stats: 6: 2-3-0
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1000m/1100m
Career Best Win: Maribyrnong Trial, October 3 2020, Flemington, Good Surface
Dry Track Stats: 6: 2-3-0
Wet Track Stats: Untried
Short Summary: Just fair last Saturday, but tick is Blinkers back on. Bred to handle a wet track…not dismissing him.
Blue Diamond (1200m), February 20 2021, Caulfield, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Even with the Blinkers on, he was a bit keen in the run, and that probably cost him in the end. Just took something way from his finale when nabbed late by Artorius. Still, a very good run in defeat on the back up.

Pago Pago Stakes (1200m), March 13 2021, Rosehill, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

The signs were there to suggest this was more or less a trial. Market late didn’t want him, nearly touching $3 from $2.40, Blinkers off, and then to top it off, a negative ride. The run was still sound in defeat given that set up.

Final Summary: He has the Blue Diamond form, which is just about the strongest form line coming into this. Blinkers made a difference with him when winning three back and then a week later was pipped in the Blue Diamond, so I like that they are back on. A must include for multiples.

 

5. Anamoe

Odds: $18.00
Breeding: Street Boss x Anamato
Trainer: James Cummings
Jockey: 
Barrier: 16
Career Stats: 5: 2-1-1
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1000m/1200m
Career Best Win: Todman Stakes, March 6 2021, Randwick, Good Surface
Dry Track Stats: 5: 2-1-1
Wet Track Stats: Untried
Short Summary: He won the key lead up…just a question of upside and whether he has any left.
Blue Diamond (1200m), February 20 2021, Caulfield, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

One of the runs in defeat I thought. Had to get dragged back from a wide gate and Olly was looking to get a cart into the race, but it didn’t eventuate. Had to do it himself and he was very good late. Draws a decent gate and I think he wins.

Todman Stakes (1200m), March 6 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Ripping steer from Rachel King. Lobbed into a suck spot off the good speed and just waited for the gaps to appear. They did, he surged hard and nabbed Profiteer near the peg in an excellent effort. Overall time compared to the Reisling was around 4.5L quicker, so a big tick to this form.

Final Summary: At the time of writing this preview (Tuesday), the Blinkers are still off for him. He didn’t need them to win the Todman. My two negatives with him are the upside…not sure there is any left whereas Profiteer has loads of improvement to come. And the gate. It could be a repeat of the Blue Diamond. Dragged back to last and will be a flashing light run. But if he gets a drag into the race, he’ll be hard to hold out.

 

6. Home Affairs

Odds: $19.00
Breeding: I Am Invincible x Miss Interiors
Trainer: Chris Waller
Jockey: James McDonald
Barrier: 2
Career Stats: 3: 1-1-1
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1100m/1100m
Career Best Win: Silver Slipper, February 20 2021, Rosehill, Soft Surface
Dry Track Stats: 1: 0-0-1
Wet Track Stats: 2: 1-1-0
Short Summary: He looks more of a Sires horse, a better three year old in time. But, he can win this without surprising.
Silver Slipper (1100m), February 20 2021, Rosehill, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

Wasn’t a vintage Silver Slipper but job done re qualifying for the Golden Slipper with a win. The form out of it since has been pretty plain though and the overall time was average relative to the meeting.

Todman Stakes (1200m), March 6 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

This was his first look at firm ground and it was his career best effort. Probably didn’t get the clearest of paths in the straight but loved the way he kept finding to run third in what is clearly the strongest Sydney form line for the Slipper.

Final Summary: He’ll do no work from the gate and J Mac chooses to ride him over Stay Inside, who is nearly favourite. To me though, he needs a dry track to be a serious winning threat. Wet track and he’s an outside winning hope.

 

7. Kalashnikov

Odds: $61.00
Breeding: Capitalist x Rough Ride
Trainer: Peter & Paul Snowden
Jockey: Mark Zahra
Barrier: 1
Career Stats: 5: 2-0-0
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1100m/1200m
Career Best Win: Black Opal, March 7 2021, Canberra, Good Surface
Dry Track Stats: 3: 1-0-0
Wet Track Stats: 2: 1-0-0
Short Summary: There is a bit of timing about him, he’s in the right stable and comes here in winning form. Will need to improve a few lengths though.
Pierro Plate (1100m), February 13 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

The tactics from the wide gate were to ride negative and that was the case. He couldn’t get involved from the back but at the same time, thought he was entitled to do a bit more behind Stay Inside, beaten just under nine lengths.

Black Opal (1200m), March 7 2021, Canberra, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Second win on the bounce for this guy and he was strong in winning, running good time as well. J Mac landed him in a plum spot behind the speed and once he got clear air, he surged and fended off a late challenge from a talented type in Solar Winds.

Final Summary: On overall form, I think he struggles, but he has found form his past couple, beating the older horses in a maiden, which is always a good sign, then backed it up with the Black Opal triumph. If you’re playing wider first four’s, I’d be including him.

 

8. Stay Inside

Odds: $4.80
Breeding: Extreme Choice x Nothin Leica Storm
Trainer: Richard & Michael Freedman
Jockey: Tommy Berry
Barrier: 3
Career Stats: 3: 2-0-0
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1000m/1100m
Career Best Win: Pierro Plate, February 13 2021, Randwick, Soft Surface
Dry Track Stats: 2: 1-0-0
Wet Track Stats: 1: 1-0-0
Short Summary: Given none in the Todman, he is a major winning chance.
Pierro Plate (1100m), February 13 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

His lone look at wet ground and it was one of the more impressive wins from a juvenile this season. The change up speed between the 400m-200m was that of a top juvenile and you could see on the line that J Mac was very kind.

Todman Stakes (1200m), March 6 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Just a mess from the start for this guy. He looked to be bolting but things didn’t pan out for him in the straight and he was luckless behind Anamoe in a high rating race, so this does read well for the Slipper.

Final Summary: He just sits behind Profiteer as #1 seed for me. Given none in the Todman. Off the Pierro Plate win, he’s going to take a power of beating, and was a big winner at the barrier draw. He’ll look the winner at some stage.

 

9. Rocket Tiger

Odds: $71.00
Breeding: Cluster x Takook
Trainer: Scott Spackman
Jockey: Kathy O’Hara
Barrier: 14
Career Stats: 4: 2-1-1
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1000m/1100m
Career Best Win: 2YO Plate, December 26 2020, Randwick, Soft Surface
Dry Track Stats: 2: 1-0-1
Wet Track Stats: 2: 1-1-0
Short Summary: He’ll press forward and give a sight…just not sure he has the class.
Silver Slipper (1100m), February 20 2021, Rosehill, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

I think with clear air and full momentum, he wins this instead of a close second to Home Affairs. Just lost momentum in shoving clear and that cost him in the end. Still,  a good effort, albeit in a race that didn’t rate through the roof.

Black Opal (1200m), March 7 2021, Canberra, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

On face value, I thought he was disappointing. Got to the front and had control under Kathy. Thought he was entitled to kick on stronger than what he did when third to Kalashnikov, beaten around 1.5L.

Final Summary: The signs were there in the Black Opal to suggest he is coming towards the end of his prep. Drawn wide, the only option they’ll have is to roll forward. From there, he’ll give a sight, but last bit will be the test.

 

10. O’President

Odds: $12.00
Breeding: Fastnet Rock x O’Marilyn
Trainer: Chris Waller
Jockey: Glen Boss
Barrier: 8
Career Stats: 3: 2-0-0
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1200m/1250m
Career Best Win: Skyline Stakes, February 27 2021, Randwick, Soft Surface
Dry Track Stats: Untried
Wet Track Stats: 3: 2-0-0
Short Summary: I think he’s being somewhat underestimated. A win wouldn’t totally shock.
2YO Maiden (1250m), January 29 2021, Canterbury, Clockwise Direction, Heavy Surface

This was his first and lone look at heavy ground, and gee he lapped it up. Admittedly was leading on the fence, which is gold at Canterbury, but that aside, he was dominant and the form out of the race has been solid with a couple of winners to come from it.

Skyline Stakes (1200m), February 27 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

Not sure what to make of the win. Visually he was pretty strong, but Tim Clark, as he does so often, got control in front and gave nothing else a look in. Form out of it has been solid enough.

Final Summary: He’s a wet tracker for sure from what we’ve seen to date, so that keeps him in the mix for sure. I have him around 5th/6th pick, so will need to improve a bit in order to win, but has the best big race rider in the business.

 

11. Captivant

Odds: $41.00
Breeding: Capitalist x Speedboat
Trainer: Peter & Paul Snowden
Jockey: Tom Marquand
Barrier: 9
Career Stats: 3: 1-0-1
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1000m/1000m
Career Best Win: Victory Vein Plate, October 17 2020, Randwick, Good Surface
Dry Track Stats: 1: 1-0-0
Wet Track Stats: 2: 0-0-1
Short Summary: Dry track, he’d be a top chance. Wet track, I think he’ll really struggle.
Golden Gift (1100m), November 7 2020, Rosehill, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

The tick for him is that he has had experience at Rosehill on wet ground. He looked lost when the sprint went on but he picked up and was good late behind Sneaky Five. Just not entirely strong how form this is as a whole.

Skyline Stakes (1200m), February 27 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

This was a very funny run. He ran his race in patches. Looked gone on a number of occasions but picked up late and wasn’t too bad through the line behind O’President in an okay rating race.

Final Summary: I’ve been hot on him all Autumn, but I don’t think he’ll be sharp enough on a wet track to win a Slipper. I think he’ll run an okay race, with eyes towards the Sires and Champagne where he will hope for dry ground.

 

12. Glistening

Odds: $71.00
Breeding: Zoustar x Beethog
Trainer: Richard & Michael Freedman
Jockey: Jean Van Overmiere
Barrier: 7
Career Stats: 2: 1-1-0
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1200m/1200m
Career Best Win: Reisling Stakes, March 6 2021, Randwick, Good Surface
Dry Track Stats: 2: 1-1-0
Wet Track Stats: Untried
Short Summary: Ticked the 1200m box, puts herself on speed…just not sure the form around her is good enough.
Black Opal Preview (1000m), February 19 2021, Canberra, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

She jumped really well for her debut, but opted for cover instead of holding the front. She kept finding under pressure and was good in defeat, just no match for Pretty Woman, who was luckless in the Reisling, as you’ll see down below.

Reisling Stakes (1200m), March 6 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Good ride from JVO to get her home here. Positive from the outset, found the front and kicked on strongly to fend them off and win. The overall time was significantly slower than the Todman, so that’s the negative.

Final Summary: Overall, the Reisling line up looked an ordinary bunch, with a couple of exceptions, which aren’t running here. She’ll put herself in a decent position near the front, but doubt she has the quality or toughness to fend them off at the end of a hard 1200m.

 

13. Four Moves Ahead

Odds: $4.80
Breeding: Snitzel x Doulmera
Trainer: John Sargent
Jockey: Nash Rawiller
Barrier: 10
Career Stats: 2: 2-0-0
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1150m/1100m
Career Best Win: Sweet Embrace Stakes, February 27 2021, Randwick, Soft Surface
Dry Track Stats: Untried
Wet Track Stats: 2: 2-0-0
Short Summary: If a filly is to win the Slipper, she is the #1 seed by a big margin. Definite winning chance.
2YO Handicap (1150m), January 2 2021, Randwick – Kensington, Clockwise Direction, Heavy Surface

Lot of class and arrogance about this debut win. Was wide no cover for the trip, but under a good hold throughout from Tommy and once he gave her a squeeze, away she went and she was dominant in fast time on heavy ground.

To view this race replay click here
Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m), February 27 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

In terms of impressive lead up winners, she probably sits at the top. This was a huge win given she was several weeks between runs with issues leading in. Sat near a fast speed and was entitled to drop away, but she kicked, fended them off and held on.

Final Summary: She’s the one outside Profiteer/Stay Inside that worries me. There was improvement to come from the Sweet Embrace and she does have upside, plenty of it, compared to most engaged here. It will be fascinating to see what Nash does from the gate. Hard to beat.

 

14. Swift Witness

Odds: $41.00
Breeding: Star Witness x Taylor’s Command
Trainer: Gai Waterhouse/Adrian Bott
Jockey: Tim Clark
Barrier: 12
Career Stats: 4: 1-1-1
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1100m/1100m
Career Best Win: 2YO Handicap, January 9 2021, Gold Coast, Soft Surface
Dry Track Stats: 2: 0-1-0
Wet Track Stats: 2: 1-0-1
Short Summary: Happy to let her go through to the keeper.
Magic Millions Classic (1200m), January 16 2021, Gold Coast, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Was heavily backed to win this given she was so dominant seven days prior and ran fast time. She was pretty plain I thought, with the stable saying post race she didn’t handle the back up. She also pulled up with heat stress, so there were excuses.

Reisling Stakes (1200m), March 6 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

They rode her cold this time around and the tactics all but worked. She drove hard and just missed out on picking up Glistening in a tight go, but again, keep saying, the time they ran was ordinary compared to the Todman.

Final Summary: To my eye, she just doesn’t have strong enough form lines to be winning a Slipper and I have many others ahead of her.

 

15. Mallory

Odds: $41.00
Breeding: Not A Single Doubt x Panorama Ridge
Trainer: Gerald Ryan/Sterling Alexiou
Jockey: Jason Collett
Barrier: 6
Career Stats: 3: 1-1-1
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1100m/1100m
Career Best Win: Widden Stakes, January 30 2021, Rosehill, Soft Surface
Dry Track Stats: 1: 0-1-0
Wet Track Stats: 2: 1-0-1
Short Summary: She’s the #2 seed for the Fillies behind Four Moves Ahead and is a knockout chance.
Widden Stakes (1100m), January 30 2021, Rosehill, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

With due respect, she beat scrubs, but she was dominant in beating scrubs. Tracked up beautifully behind the speed and once she got clear air, it was race over. But compared to the line up here, she beat nothing.

Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m), February 27 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

A good run with a touch of flattering. She did work home strongly from the back, but given the early burn, she was entitled to run on when third to Four Moves Ahead in a race that rated well and is the best form line in terms of the Fillies.

Final Summary: Fast run 1200m will be no issue for her and drawing well, she can sit much closer in the run than what she did in the Sweet Embrace. $26/thereabouts is a touch of overs I thought. I’d have her around $20, perhaps a touch shorter.

 

16. Queen Of Wizardry

Odds: $101.00
Breeding: Not A Single Doubt x Miss Hufflepuff
Trainer: Annabel Neasham
Jockey: John Allen
Barrier: 4
Career Stats: 2: 1-0-0
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1200m/1200m
Career Best Win: 2YO Handicap, January 2 2021, Eagle Farm, Good Surface
Dry Track Stats: 2: 1-0-0
Wet Track Stats: Untried
Short Summary: Sky Racing will wet their pants if she wins. I think their pants will remain dry.
2YO Handicap (1200m), January 2 2021, Eagle Farm, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Was heavily backed to win this given she was so dominant seven days prior and ran fast time. She was pretty plain I thought, with the stable saying post race she didn’t handle the back up. She also pulled up with heat stress, so there were excuses.

Magic Millions Classic (1200m), January 16 2021, Gold Coast, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Outside the winner, I thought she was one of the runs of the race. Got badly held up at a vital stage before eventually getting clear and working home strongly nearer the inside. Had she got clear air, no doubt she places without troubling Shaquero.

Final Summary: Great achievement by Annabel Neasham to get a runner in the Slipper in her first year of training. More realistic race to target would be the Percy Sykes, but she’s in the Slipper and is a 1/16 chance at winning $2 Million.
