2010 Sandown Classic Odds & Betting

November 12th, 2010

Betting markets have opened on the final Melbourne Cup Carnival feature race, the 2010 Sandown Classic, set to run at Betfair Park Sandown Hillside this Saturday November 13.

The $350,000 Group 2 Sandown Classic (2400m) final field features eight top gallopers and the pronounced favourite is in-form veteran Zipping seeking an unparalleled fourth consecutive win.

Premier online bookmaker Luxbet originally installed the Lloyd Williams-owned Zipping as the $1.70 favourite in the Sandown Classic odds and the punters have gotten right behind the nine-year-old gelding.

Zipping has now firmed into $1.65 to win the Sandown Classic, well positioned on the rails in barrier one.

Second favourite in the Sandown Classic betting and another market mover is classy New Zealand galloper Ginga Dude.

The David Jones Cup winner is coming off a gallant third to superstar So You Think in the Mackinnon Stakes and has been backed in from $6.50 to $6 for the Sandown Classic through Luxbet.

Luca Cumani’s Manighar is the only other Sandown Classic runner at single figure odds, the five-year-old now paying $7.50, drifting out from $7.

For punters seeking some extra value with their Sandown Classic wagers, there are a number of other longer-priced runners that look top picks to add into your exotic bets along with the favourite.

Bart Cummings’ quality mare Faint Perfume is at $14, tipped to improve on her recent poor form after finally drawing a good barrier for Saturday, set to jump from gate two with Michael Rodd aboard.

Rodd previously rode Zipping to victory in the last two editions of the Sandown Classic but connections of the favourite have decided to continue the recent association with jockey Nicholas Hall for Zipping in the Classic on Saturday.

The 2010 Patinack Farm Sandown Classic is scheduled as Race 7 at Sandown on Saturday’s bumper race card due to jump at 4:10pm (AEDST).
