2010 Goodwood Betting Odds – Catapulted the Favourite

April 30th, 2010

One of the major drawcards for this weekend’s Super Sunday of racing at Allan Scott Park Morphettville is the $300,000 Group 1 Goodwood (1200m) and the betting markets for the feature are really starting to heat up.

The clear pre-race favourite, currently paying $3.50 through Ladbrokes.com.au, is the Mark Kavanagh-trained Catapulted who has a sensational record at the Morphettville track.

Last start winner of the Group 3 D C McKay Stakes (1100m), four-year-old Catbird gelding Catapulted is drawing plenty of attention from the punters and his odds are only set to shorten as race day approaches.

Kavanagh could have a very successful day on Sunday at Morphettville as he also trains the odds-on favourite Zantelagh in the $100,000 Group 3 Auraria Stakes (1800m).

Second and third elects in the Goodwood betting markets are the Mick Price-trained Velocitea at $5.50 drawn ideally in barrier one, and Rostova who is the only Group 1 winner of the field having taken out the Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) two starts back.

Paying $7.50 Rostova represents good value in the Goodwood, also drawn well in barrier two, but may have a bit of trouble with the weights.

Further down in the odds at $17 is the Richard Jolly-trained Very Discreet who looks excellent for a Place bet here after the four-year-old Exceed And Excel mare claimed victory in the Listed Oakbank Stakes (1100m) last start.

At the longest odds for the Goodwood is Likable Will paying $101 for a win with Ladbrokes.com.au, who have terrific odds open on all of the quality Morphettville Races on this Sunday.
