The Metropolitan betting odds 2020

The Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) will be held at Royal Randwick on Saturday, October 3. Here are the latest The Metropolitan betting odds.

Newcastle trainer Kris Lees prepares six-year-old gelding Mugatoo who is the clear-cut favourite for this year’s The Metropolitan at $2.90. A winner of eight races from 14 starts, Mugatoo enters the race rock-hard fit with three runs under his belt. All three runs have resulted in victory for the son of Henrythenavigator.

His preparation began on July 25 when taking out the Listed Winter Challenge (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens. Mugatoo raced at the same track when capturing the Group 3 Premier’s Cup (1900m) as an odds-on favourite. His most recent win came with a 1.54-length win in the Group 3 Newcastle Gold Cup (2300m) as he defeated Hush Writer who is a $9 chance for trainers Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.

Second favourite at $7 is the Chris Waller-trained Shared Ambition who has won six from 13. Shared Ambition has also had three runs under the belt, showing sharp improvement last start to finish second in the Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) won by Taikomochi at Royal Randwick.

Brimham Rocks ($9), Hush Writer and Zebrowski ($9.50) are the other runners in single figures.
