Two Group 1 races will be the highlight of Mostyn Copper Group Randwick Guineas Day at Royal Randwick this Saturday, 10 March.
James Cummings-trained Kementari ($2.50 TAB Fixed Odds) lines up as the race favourite in the Group 1 $1million Mostyn Copper Group Randwick Guineas and will be looking to be the first horse since It’s A Dundeel (2013) to complete the three-year-old Triple Crown.
The Group 1 $500,000 Bisley Workwear Canterbury Stakes also features on the nine race card where Clearly Innocent, trained by Kris Lees is the $4.80 TAB Fixed Odds favourite in an open market.
The build-up to the world’s richest two-year-old race continues on Saturday with the running of the Group 2 $300,000 The Daily Telegraph Reisling Stakes (fillies) and the Group 2 $300,000 UNSW Todman Stakes (colts and geldings).
The winner of each will gain automatic entry to the Group 1 $3.5m Longines Golden Slipper on 24 March.
The Daily Telegraph Reisling Stakes has produced significant winners of upcoming two-year-old races with seven going forward to win the Golden Slipper, including 2017 victor, She Will Reign.
Similarly, the UNSW Todman Stakes is a strong form indicator for the Longines Golden Slipper with five winners going on to win the double, with the last being Vancouver in 2013.
