2011 Chairman’s Handicap Betting & Odds Update

April 9th, 2011

2011 Chairman’s Handicap betting markets are constantly building with plenty of interest from punters looking for some value on Australian Derby Day at Randwick.

With Black Caviar an odds on favourite in the TJ Smith and more short quotes in the AJC Sires Produce Stakes the Chairman’s Handicap looks like being an early favourite for punters.

Older Than Time is at the shortest quote in the field and even then you can get $6.00 for the win at online bookmaker Luxbet.com.

That’s in a point from the opening quote but still comfortably ahead of the two nearest rivals at $7.50.

Showcause has fielded some big money to get into that price while Anudjawun also shortened to be a point and a half off the favourite.

If you’ve been following the betting all week you may be wondering where Galizani got to but unfortunately he was an overnight scratching.

The value is continued further back in the field with three genuine winning chances at $10 apiece.

If Speed Gifted had rain he’d certainly have come in but despite that the dead track certainly doesn’t rule him out.

A horse like C’est La Guerre always has to be taken seriously with a Melbourne Cup start proving this horse is among the best stayers in the country.

Gai Waterhouse’s Once Were Wild is the third on the $10 mark and has big stakes victories already pencilled in the resume.

Of the roughies back deeper in betting Miss Darcey has support at $34 in from $41 while one of the bigger movers is our early roughie tip Cyber Crime at $31 in from $41.

The Patriot remains the long shot of the race with just a dabble of interest getting him below triple figures into $81.

The 2011 Chairman’s Handicap is Race #3 on the Australian Derby Day card due to jump at 12:40pm Sydney time.
