Punters all around the country are waiting in anticipation for the first day of The Championships at Royal Randwick this weekend. The headline act and arguably the best race in NSW is the Group 1 Doncaster Mile and we’ve found one at a massive price who looks to have plenty of winning credentials.
It’s not often you see a winner of 6 of their last 7 races go around at $18*, but Lanciato fits that bill in the penultimate race. In barrier 13 he’s drawn to have last crack at them with only 51kg for Rachel King, who’s had 3 rides for 3 wins on the gelding. The test is obviously the rise in class from a Group 3. But he looks ideally set-up here and in the form of his life.
His last two wins have been phenomenal, flying late from seemingly impossible positions to land wins in the G3 Newcastle Newmarket over 1400m and the Listed Carrington Stakes over 1400m. Had a 4 week freshen before trialling second to TJ Smith favourite Redzel is slick time last week. That keeps him on the fresh side where he has an impeccable record of 7:4-0-2 (first or second-up). He’s a winner over 1600m to boot.
So how can you benefit if this gelding flies late to land his maiden Group 1 victory?
