2011 Run To The Rose Betting & Odds

August 26th, 2011

The 2011 Run To The Rose odds have been released and as expected the big betting race is well and truly on.

This one was always going to be beauty for punters and they haven’t disappointed with some huge stakes already wagered.

The attraction of it is quite simple, there are just eight horses in the field, all of them with their own special claims.

In terms of the top guns though they are a class above at their best, the question is though can they run at their best first up?

Given it’s only a small field we can go through each runner individually and give you the odds, tell you why that’s the case and take a punt as to what may happen as the race draws closer.

2011 Run To The Rose Betting & Odds

First up is Helmet, a dual Group 1 champion and one many tipped as the winner here. The big thing about him though is that Peter Snowden has gone on record as saying he’s very vulnerable first up tomorrow. That’s sent his odds drifting on Luxbet and after opening at $3.50 he’s now out to $4.40.

The reason for this comes down to Smart Missile, he’s been the big go with money continuing to pour in. He opened at $1.90 and that’s been smashed into $1.75 on Luxbet. I don’t know how much shorter he can get but he’s the only one punters want.

Foxwedge is the wildcard here, he splits the top two and is already has a win on the board this season. He’s fresh but fit, that’s something punters are a big fan of. That being said the plunge on Smart Missile has affected him as well, out to $4.40 on Luxbet after opening at $3.80.

Ripping through the others you’ll fin them all completely untouched at the big odds, Diamond To Pegasus still at $61, Boys On Tour at $35, Flight Of Pegasus at $21 and Mashkoor at $151.

The only other worth mentioning is Karuta Queen, the filly not wanted at $10 and now out to $13.

All these fixed price odds are available right now at Luxbet but could fluctuate at any time.

Whether they go in or out though they are guaranteed better than the TAB so if you want to bet smart, make sure you bet with Luxbet.
