The Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap is due to set off the Group racing at Doomben Racecourse this Saturday May 14, 2011, and here we have the most up-to-date betting information for the race.
Run over 2,020 metres, the 2011 Chairman’s Handicap is worth $115,000 and has attracted a horse racing field of 15.
This year’s Chairman’s Handicap is due to run as Race 5 on BTC Cup Day and is scheduled to jump at 2.30pm (AEST).
Current favourite in the 2011 Chairman’s Handicap betting is Michael, Wayne and John Hawke’s Rainbow Styling.
The six-year-old gelding has drawn barrier one for the race and is currently paying odds of $4.60 for the win at Luxbet.
Originally opening at odds of $4.40, Rainbow Styling has lengthened in odds slightly since markets opened.
Currently second in the 2011 Chairman’s Handicap betting market is Firebolt, who is paying odds of $6.50.
The five-year-old gelding won his last start over 1,600 metres late last month and is a previous Group winner, winning the Group 2 Shannon Stakes in September last year.
Firebolt’s trainer, Roger James, is confident in his horse’s ability based on his last year’s spring form.
“It was a stunning win in the Shannon,” James said.
“He sat three and four wide the entire trip and still ran good time.”
Firebolt then went on to finish 11th out of a 20 horse field in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap, despite drawing the widest barrier in the field.
“In the Epsom, he drew wide and had to go forward,” James said.
“They ran something like 35 seconds for the first 600 metres and he was still there at the 100 metres.
“He was entitled knock up in the Epsom.
James will wait to see how Firebolt runs in the 2011 Chairman’s Handicap before scheduling his next race.
“I haven’t decided on anything yet with him and I’ll wait until after he runs on Saturday,” James said.
Warrior Within is currently the least fancied runner in the 2011 Chairman’s Handicap betting, and is paying odds of $151 to win at Luxbet.
