The Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes was a tough watch for the Palmerbet.com team last weekend, with Begood Toya Mother proving too good for his rivals. Punters who took the $4.50 for the 5 year old to salute against his well-credentialed rivals were never in doubt. Despite the disappointment of last weekend, the Palmerbet team are offering a great price for Bivouac and Homesman to win their respective Group 1 races this weekend.
After a strong win in the Group 2 Run to the Roses , Godolphin 3yo BIVOUAC ($3.20 - $2.50) has been heavily supported to take out the Group 1 Golden Rose at Rosehill on Saturday. His only blemish this campaign was when finishing runner up on a heavy track in the San Domenico Stakes. If he runs a strong 1400 metres he looks the winner.
The Team Williams owned HOMESMAN has not run a poor race since coming to Australia last year. After a dominant first up win in the Group 2 Feehan Stakes, the Irish galloper heads to Caulfield to attempt back-to-back wins in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes. In a star-studded field, HOMESMAN will take a lot of catching.
Palmerbet CEO Grant Palmer was philosophical earlier this week, “We had to take Begood Toya Mother on last week at Group 1 level. Sometimes you have to dip your cap and say well played. He was just too good for us. BIVOUAC and HOMESMAN are both quality gallopers but Group 1 racing can produce some strange results. Both races have strong fields and we are happy to take the favourites on”.
