Randwick Guineas Odds
Caulfield Guineas winner Super Seth is the $2.70 favourite for Saturday’s Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) at Royal Randwick.
Trained by Anthony Freedman, three-year-old colt Super Seth is the only horse to defeat Australian Guineas winner Alligator Blood in a thrilling finish to the Caulfield Guineas back in October.
Super Seth resumed with victory in the Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1200m) before finishing a narrow second in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) won by Streets Of Avalon.
Shadow Hero is the second elect at $6.00 for trainer Mark Newnham. The gelding was fifth in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) won by Brandenburg who is $12 to win the Randwick Guineas. Shadow Hero was victorious in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) as he defeated Castelvecchio who would go on to run second in the Cox Plate.
Castelvecchio is $7.50 for the Guineas and comes out of the Hobartville also. Prepared by Richard Litt, the colt was sixth in the Hobartville. He will appreciate the step up to the mile, which is the distance that saw him win the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) over Loving Gaby.
Microphone is the other runner in single figures at $9.00.
Super Seth $2.70
Shadow Hero $6.00
Prince Fawaz $61
