The $3.5 million Golden Slipper is set headline the Rosehill Gardens program this Saturday April 2, 2011.
Despite Sepoy’s fall from grace in last start’s Group 2 Todman Stakes, he is still tipped to take out Australia’s premier two-year-old event.
Sepoy is best suited to a good or heavy track and will be hoping the rain will hold off for Saturday’s race.
The two-year-old Elusive Quality colt will be attempting to claim his fifth victory from six starts when he takes to the field for the Group 1 Golden Slipper.
The young talent has already earned his connections prize money of $855,000 and has won all three legs of the coveted Blue Diamond, including the $1 million Blue Diamond Stakes.
Sepoy is currently the easing favourite at Luxbet, paying odds of $3.60.
AAMI Golden Slipper Tips (1200m) – Jumps at 4.05pm (AEDST)
Favourite Tip: #1 Sepoy
Bets Place Picks: #12 Shared Reflections and #2 Smart Missile
Shared Reflections is tipped to run second in the 2011 Golden Slipper, with the young filly winning two of her three career race starts.
The talented filly won her last start in the 2011 Sweet Embrace Stakes in front of the talented Streama and Pane In The Glass.
The Gai Waterhouse’s Shared Reflections will jump from barrier six in the 2011 Golden Slipper and will be ridden by jockey Damien Oliver.
Smart Missile is tippe to round out the placings in the 2011 Golden Slipper, after displaying his ability in the $300,000 Todman Stakes last start when he upstaged Sepoy.
The young colt has won both of his two previous starts and has proved that he can handle any weather conditions, therefore, if there is rain on Golden Slipper Day this colt will be a force to be reckoned with.
The 2011 Golden Slipper will run as a Race 7 at Rosehill this Saturday and is due to jump at 4.05pm (AEDST).
