2017 Chipping Norton Stakes Odds Update

February 23rd, 2017

Ten runners have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s 2017 Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick and removing Winx from the equation, subsequently offers punters excellent value from a betting perspective.

The champion mare has now gone fourteen races without losing and is the sole occupant of the top line of 2017 Chipping Norton Stakes betting at Ladbrokes.com.au, at a $1.14 in the unique Enhanced Odds market.

Posting her maiden win at the highest level in the 2015 edition of the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2200m), Winx has since claimed a further eight Group 1 titles, for close to $10 million in prize money.

Having returned to the paddock in 2016 after delivering an excellent field an eight length defeat in the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m), Winx resumed a fortnight ago to win the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) and has reportedly only improved from the run.

Arguably the country’s second-best racehorse, Hartnell is yet to make up the distance on Winx and is the sole occupant of the second line of Chipping Norton Stakes betting, at a generous $10 quote in the Ladbrokes Enhanced Odds market.

Hartnell returned to the track in spring to finish second behind Winx in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m), but was dominant in his races away from the equine superstar; winning each of the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) and Group 2 Hill Stakes (2000m) and Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) with complete ease.

Running second in the Cox Plate, albeit by a lengthy margin, the Authorized gelding was sent for a spell after he worked home well to finish third in the Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) on the first Tuesday of November.

Hartnell hit the line well for second in the Apollo Stakes and should receive a great ride from in-form hoop Brenton Avdulla on Saturday.

Endless Drama stamped himself as one to watch with a hard-fought third in the Apollo Stakes first-up and the talented import remains an outright $21 third-favourite in 2017 Chipping Norton Stakes betting markets.

Endless Drama has posted two race wins and a further five minors through his ten career starts and should receive a good run in transit from barrier 7 on Saturday.
