Only eight runners remain in contention for Saturday’s featured 2015 Group 2 Zipping Classic (2400m) at Sandown Racecourse; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Dandino has returned to slick form through his most recent appearances and remains outright $3.20 favourite in 2015 Zipping Classic betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au as a result.
Announcing himself to the Australian racing community when second in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) and fourth in the Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) through an impressive 2013 racing campaign, Dandino was unlucky to miss more than a year of racing through injury through late 2014 and early 2015.
Clearly needing the runs and more distance when failing to figure in his first two starts this time, Dandino progressed to eighth in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) and fourth in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) before running second in the Group 3 Geelong Cup (2400m) on October 21st.
Having returned to winning form in the Group 3 Queen’s Cup (2600m) last weekend, the Dansili entire will leave from the ideal barrier 4 with Dwayne Dunn in the saddle.
Rising Romance is unlucky not to have posted a Group 1 success through the 2015 Spring Carnival and remains sole occupant of the second line of 2015 Zipping Classic betting at a quote of $3.40.
Returning this time for sixth in the Memsie Stakes, Rising Romance ran a close second to Fawkner in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) but failed to figure in either of the Turnbull Stakes and Caulfield Cup.
Having run an agonizingly close second to Gailo Chop in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) a fortnight ago, the Ekraar mare should relish a step-up to a mile and a half and is sure to lay a great account for herself in the 2015 Zipping Classic.
Who Shot Thebarman has interestingly drifted in 2015 Zipping Classic betting markets but remains outright third favourite for success at generous $5 odds.
Capping a standout 2014 campaign third in the Melbourne Cup, Who Shot Thebarman returned this year for fifth in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m); progressing to fourth in each of the Group 3 Sky High Stakes (2000m) and Group 1 The BMW (2400m) before running a close second in the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m).
While unable to figure through five starts this time, the conditions of the 2015 Zipping Classic arguably offer Who Shot Thebarman his best chance for success this time.
