Betting And Tips For 2011 Silver Slipper

February 24th, 2011

The Silver Slipper is always a great race and in 2011 the betting race is just as fascinating.

Unbeaten filly Satin Shoes has jumped to early favouritism and at last check was steady at $2.20 on Luxbet fixed price markets.

That’s narrowly ahead of the other heavily backed runner Straight Gold which is at $2.70.

It’s then a monster gap back to the next entry Elite Falls, she’s already proved she can match it with Satin Shoes but the punters want none of it at $13.

The unbeaten Aerobatics sits next at $14 with another huge gap back to the rest of the field.

Horses like Diamond To Pegasus with two wins from three starts is out as far as $26.

You’ll get the same price for the one from two Bossdon City or untried Crystal Rock.

All in all though it’s a genuine two horse race with punters either happy to keep riding Satin Shoes success or finding value in the first up win at Canterbury from Straight Gold.

We’re happy to jump on the bandwagon and think it’ll take a huge run for anyone to beat Satin Shoes in the Silver Slipper this weekend.

However we’re not quite as convinced with Straight Gold so think boxing the placings in a trifecta is the best value option.

It’s up to you how many you include but Straight Gold certainly gets a run from barrier two.

We’re convinced Diamond To Pegasus can do enough to feature as well and at $26 is a sure fire value addition.

Elite Falls has already run second to Satin Shoes so has to be around the money again.

Aerobatics with the one win from one start should cope with the occasion ok as well.

Finally, if you’re really looking to add value and can squeeze another in your box it’s worth considering Al’s Magic Miss. Only the one run against a tiny field but at $51 we feel that’s too long for a horse that’s yet to put a foot wrong.
