2021 Golden Slipper Tips

2021 Golden Slipper Best Bet - Profiteer

While the very impressive Inglis Millenium winner had his unbeaten run ended in the Todman Stakes, which does look the main form reference for this feature, he certainly lost no admirers when only reeled in by Anamoe late.

That was the test against the stronger juveniles that Profiteer needed, and arriving to that last outing a month between runs following his dominant performance on February 6, he was entitled to be vulnerable late, especially rafter racing a little keenly.

Plenty of these runners that can come on further but as the most talented two-year-old we've seen in this line-up along with a favourable racing pattern, the son of Capitalist is the one they'll need to catch with a little more improvement predicted.

2021 Golden Slipper Next Best Bet - Four Moves Ahead

A sensational debut winner on the Kensington circuit back on January 2 and then a subsequent trial winner following a freshen-up, this filly was installed as the early Silver Slipper favourite, a race she was then scratched from.

Losing even the slightest of momentum at this time of year is never ideal with a two-year-old, so there was a query prior to the Sweet Embrace Stakes off a slight setback and even though she was nowhere near her top, class ultimately prevailed.

Both victories have been on wet tracks while given the space between her debut and that last outing, Four Moves Ahead could be the one that's set for a big peak in 2021 Golden Slipper, where she's a fresh face with different form to many of the colts.

2021 Golden Slipper Roughie - Queen Of Wizardry

At a fair price, she did look one of the better bets of last week's Rosehill program in the Magic Night Stakes, a filly's Group Three that she was well supported for but was scratched with a minor injury.

While this is certainly much tougher and as a more genuine winning proposition, I am more keen on her in the Sire's over 1400m on April 3 (currently about 50/1 for that feature) where she can start to peak against the tiring two-year-old's, she shouldn't be completely discounted as a top three or four hope here.

Following an outstanding debut win, Queen Of Wizardry runs a clear second to Shaquero in the Magic Millions if it weren't for Baby Wong and Ruby Kisses falling into her lap in the straight and if she can handle the testing track, is one with a strong turn-of-foot that can arrive late.

10/1 has been snapped up for Four Moves Ahead, who may get back out a little closer to the jump.
