January 8th, 2015

Betting markets for the 2015 Class 6 Plate have just opened at Ladbrokes.com.au with Real Time ($3.80) and Murder Of Crows ($3.90) the early favourites.

The Robert Smerdon-trained Real Time has won half of his six career starts, including two Benchmark 64s over 1400m in November. The four-year-old gelding was last seen in a Benchmark 70 over 1206m at Sale Racecourse where he scored a minor placing after running one and a half lengths behind winner Smokin’ Al.

Real Time will jump from barrier five with Christian Reith in the saddle while Murder Of Crows will be in gate nine with hoop Brenton Avdulla aboard.

The Chris Waller-trained five-year-old last won a Benchmark 75 over 1100m a Rosehill Gardens back in August but was last seen running third in the Schweppes Handicap (1300m) on the same track on December 20 where the gelding got very close on the line in a top run.

David Lawlor’s Architect ($6.50) is the only other single figure hopeful in the Class 6 Plate betting. The four-year-old gelding will jump from barrier 13 (into 11) with Timothy Bell to ride.

Architect will hope to finish better than his last outing at the Magic Millions Race Day where the gelding finished second last in the $1 million Magic Millions Guineas (1400m). He has finished midfield his last two times out, including in the Group 3 George Moore Stakes (1200m) at Doomben on December 6 where he was just two and a half lengths behind winner Big Money.

Donald Baker’s Real Favulous ($15) will carry the sole top weight of 59kg after finishing in the first three in five of his past seven starts. The four-year-old gelding will jump from barrier 17 with Tommy Berry to ride but will come into gate 14 if the emergencies fail to make it on the field.

The Bruce Hill-trained Bodega Negra has scored the inside jump from barrier one with Matthew McGuren aboard. The four-year-old gelding won the Colts, Geldings and Entries Class 3 Plate (1350m) last time out by three lengths and is currently paying $13 to win.
