A talented field of 15 two-year-olds has been confirmed for Saturday’s Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) at Doomben Racecourse; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Gai Waterhouse saddled talented colt Vancouver to standout success in the two-year-old ranks through autumn and is offered a great chance of extending her record in the age bracket this weekend via Sempre Libera, who has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in 2015 Champagne Classic betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au.
Posting one win and one minor through three career starts, Sempre Libera stamped her claims as one to watch when running second amongst talented company on debut in the Cal Rei Maiden Handicap (1100m) on debut in March.
Breaking through for a maiden race win in the McGrath Estate Agents Plate (1200m) a fortnight later, the daughter of Medaglia D’Oro ran on for a credible fourth in the Group 3 Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m) last time out and will be tough to beat in the 2015 Champagne Classic with just 55kgs.
Le Chef is yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of wagers for success in 2015 Champagne Classic betting markets but has maintained position as sole occupant of the second line at generous $7.50 odds.
Unable to make much of an impact when fifth in the Breakfast Creek Hotel Maiden (1050m) on debut in November, Le Chef responded well in taking out a pair of minor sprints before displaying an exceptional turn of foot to take out the Gold Coast Magic Millions 2.y.o Guineas (1200m).
Having won a strong barrier trial on the Sunshine Coast last week, the Exceed And Excel colt appears primed for a successful return on Saturday.
Chris Waller has unearthed talented colts Zoustar and Brazen Beau over the two most recent Brisbane Winter Carnivals and appears to be offered another great chance of success via Counterattack this time, who arguably offers punters the best value for money at $8 odds in 2015 Champagne Classic betting markets.
Yet to finish outside the first three over his four competitive starts so far, the Redoute’s Choice colt ran second in a pair of Sydney minors behind Flamboyant Lass and Haptic respectively in January before returning to the paddock for a freshen-up.
Having broken through for a maiden race win in the TAB Place Multi (1200m) on April 15th, Counterattack has been confirmed to be partnered by Hugh Bowman in the Champagne Classic and will leave from the ideal barrier 3.
