The updated betting markets for this Saturday’s 2010 Epsom Handicap have opened at Sportsbet with the John Thompson-trained Trusting installed as the early favourite.
Coming off an eye-catching second in the Group 1 George Main Stakes, four-year-old Trusting is currently the $5 favourite to win the Epsom Handicap at Randwick on Saturday.
Shannon Stakes runner-up Centennial Park is drawn ideally in barrier one and could cause an Epsom Handicap upset at great odds through Ladbrokes.com.au
In a fairly open field of runners, three other horses are at a single figure quote at Sportsbet with Neeson and Firebolt paying $7 and Once Were Wild following closely at $9.
The Joseph Pride-trained Neeson is ideally drawn in barrier four for Saturday but ran a disappointing sixth in the Shannon Stakes last start.
Firebolt may be drawn on the far outside in gate 21 but was super impressive beating his rivals with ease in the Shannon Stakes, including many he will face off against again on Saturday.
Gai Waterhouse’s four-year-old mare Once Were Wild is also well drawn for Saturday in barrier five, due to be ridden by Corey Brown, but was another galloper left behind in the Shannon Stakes finishing eighth.
For punters seeking more value with their Epsom Handicap bets there are a number of other top chances in the field paying very generously.
Seven-year-old Black Piranha is perfectly drawn in barrier two and is expected to return to form on Saturday so represents excellent value at $17, while the David Hayes-trained Centennial Park ($15) has the inside running from gate one and is coming off a gallant second in the Shannon Stakes.
The 2010 Epsom Handicap is scheduled as Race 8 at Randwick on Saturday and is due to jump at 4:10pm.
