Having opened as $3.10 favourite for the 2014 Breeders’ Classic, White Sage has been particularly well backed by punters and is now featuring at a much shorter quote of $2.70, also registering as the undoubtable market mover.

Five of the final list of eight runners currently feature odds of less than $10, truly highlighting how closely contested the 2014 Breeders’ Classic is sure to be.

1st

White Sage

Having claimed victory in all five starts to date, classy mare White Sage is a favourite amongst punters to continue her perfect run of form well into the 2014 calendar. Trainer John O’Shea understandably holds White Sage in particularly high regard, and has the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) and Group 1 Doncaster Mile in his sights for the exciting Reset mare this preparation.

2nd

Streama

Guy Walter-saddled Streama will be attempting to claim a second Group 2 title in as many weeks for the renowned trainer after stablemate Appearance claimed a memorable victory in the Expressway Stakes at Randwick last weekend. Having followed up a strong win in the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) with a close-fought second to talented miler Boban in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap, Streama appears to be in good form ahead of the Breeders’ Classic after returning from the spelling paddock in great health.

3rd

Catkins

Four-year-old Catkins has returned to the track in good form after galloping well in a Rosehill Gardens barrier trial last week. Failing to finish outside the places in all of her six 2013 spring races, trainer Chris Waller is expecting the classy Dubawi mare to immediately pick up where she left off in 2013.
