Betting Update – 2011 Chairman’s Handicap – Royal Randwick

April 9th, 2011

Betting on the 2011 Chairman’s Handicap ┬áhas really started to pick up overnight with some significant moves towards the top of the field.

While in some events on the 2011 Australian Derby Day card the favourites have been drifting that’s not the case in the Chairman’s Handicap and punters are confident we won’t be seeing any upsets.

According to the latest odds from Luxbet.com Older Than Time has retained favouritism this morning and in fact firmed in that position a full point from $7.00 into $6.00.

The battle for second is red hot and both Showcause and Anudjawun not far behind the leader at $7.50 each.

Anudjawun improved half a point to get to that quote while Showcause took some big money overnight to drop a full point and a half.

If you’re wondering where the early favourite Galizani is unfortunately he won’t be contesting the event after being scratched.

No other horse is in single figures but there is a log jam on the $10 mark with three horses unable to be split by punters.

Speed Gifted opened at $10 and is unmoved with the wet weather connections were praying for not arriving in Sydney today.

C’est La Guerre has improved to get to the $10 mark though after opening at $14 with punters confident the Melbourne Cup runner has the experience, especially after the favourite was scratched.

Gai Waterhouse’s Once Were Wild is the other at $10 with two points shed to overnight betting.

Further back in the field Miss Darcey is into $34 after opening at $41 and our roughie tip Cyber Crime has had some support into $31 from $41.

The Patriot remains the biggest roughie with a dabble of interest getting him below triple figures into $81.

The 2011 Chairman’s Handicap is Race #3 on the Australian Derby Day card due to jump at 12:40pm Sydney time.
