The Metropolitan 2011 – Betting Information & Tips

September 30th, 2011

The 2011 The Metropolitan will take place at Randwick Racecourse tomorrow October 1, 2011, and we have put together the best tips and betting information for the race.

We are tipping race favourite Trusting to win the 2011 The Metropolitan after his last two exceptional performances in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes and Group 2 Hill Stakes.

The John Thompson-trained five-year-old has proven slow track ability and has never finished worse than second over the 2,400 metre distance.

Trusting is paying odds of $5 to win the 2011 The Metropolitan at Luxbet.

For second we are tipping Hawk Island, who will flourish on the wet predicted wet ground at Randwick tomorrow.

Hawk Island finished second to Trusting in the Group 2 Hill Stakes last start and will be ridden by regular jockey Glyn Schofield.

The six-year-old gelding is currently paying odds of $7 at Luxbet to win The Metropolitan 2011.

For third, we are tipping David Vandyke’s Lamasery, who won the Group 3 Colin Stephen Handicap at Rosehill last start over 2,400 metres.

The five-year-old gelding, who has defied his breeding to become a proven stayer, is paying odds of $6.50 at Luxbet.
