2011 George Ryder Stakes Field, Preview & Betting Tips

March 31st, 2011

Golden Slipper Day 2011 will light up Sydney’s Rosehill Racecourse this Saturday April 2, the day host to an incredible five Group 1 showdowns including $400,000 Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m).

Running as Rosehill Race 6 at 3:10pm (AEDST), one event before the premier horse racing showdown of the season the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m), the 2011 George Ryder Stakes has drawn a star-studded field of 15.

We are tipping Wall Street to claim an upset George Ryder Stakes win so back them now at the best price through Luxbet!

In a fairly open betting market, current favourite to become the George Ryder Stakes winner this year is #13 Aloha paying around $5 at the bookies.

Mick Price’s beautifully bred daughter of Encosta De Lago, Aloha is out to extend her sensational streak of wins to six straight on Saturday.

Most recently the four-year-old claimed an impressive 2 ½ length win in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic at this track and distance.

She faces a tougher field of rivals in the George Ryder Stakes field, however, but benefits from the ideal barrier three draw and having in-form hoop Glen Boss aboard for the ride.

Four other runners are at a single-figure price to win the George Ryder on Saturday with last-start Liverpool City Cup winner Triple Elegance ($7), Emirates Stakes runner-up Dao Dao ($8), Group 1 Randwick Guineas champion Ilovethiscity ($8) and Kiwi galloper King Mufhasa ($9).

Despite the claims these runners have, we are tipping a $13 outsider to claim an upset and have Wall Street rated special to win.

Best George Ryder Stakes Tips

#4 Wall Street – Lock in to Win at Luxbet now

Six-year-old Montjeu gelding from New Zealand coming off two Group 1 second place finishes back home, won the Emirates Stakes over the mile at Flemington last year. Distance is ideal, has the class and with rain around will be hard to beat.

#14 Ilovethiscity – Best Place Bet through Luxbet

Drawn wide but has time to overcome, coming off a Group 1 victory in the Randwick Guineas where they hung on well. Close second.

#13 Aloha – Add into Trifecta at Luxbet

Has the form, the last start Group 1, draw and ability over all types of ground. Still, faces her toughest test here.

#2 Rangirangdoo – Clean up with a Box Trifecta or First Four with Luxbet

Last year’s Doncaster winner resumed after 11 months in the Canterbury Stakes here last start on March 19, fitness failed them but should improve here.
