Wide open market for Coolmore Classic

The Ron Quinton trained Dixie Blossoms heads TAB’s market for Saturday’s $600,000, Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill on Saturday in what the bookmaker calls an open edition of the race.

“You could have ten picks in this race and still miss the winner,” TAB’s Gerard Middleton said.

“Consistent mare Dixie Blossoms is favourite though she’s never triumphed in seven starts at Rosehill, but there have been a couple of very near misses.”

Silent Sedition was the best backed in pre-post betting, ahead of Francaletta and Egg Tart.

The Coolmore Classic is Race 7 at 4.10pm in the nine race Rosehill programme.

$6.50     Dixie Blossoms

$8.50     Silent Sedition, Raiment
