Yet to be defeated over four exceptional race starts so far, talented Team Cummings-trained colt Hallowed Crown has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite for success in 2014 Roman Consul Stakes betting markets, currently available at odds of $2.10 at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Debuting with a comfortable win in the TAB Early Quaddie Plate (1150m) at Randwick on March 26th, Hallowed Crown stamped his claims as one to watch from just his second competitive start; charging home to win the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m) on Day 1 of The Championships.

Returning to the track in peak condition this time in, the Street Sense colt charged home to win the Group 3 Run To The Rose (1200m) by a length first-up before breaking through for a maiden victory at the highest level of Australian racing in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) last time out on September 13th.

A proven performer from all alleys and on varying running surfaces, Hallowed Crown is more than worth consideration for a Roman Consul Stakes bet at current odds.

A standout performer over the 2014 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival, Brazen Beau is yet to receive much more than a sprinkling of bets for success in the 2014 Roman Consul Stakes but has maintained position as sole occupant of the second line of betting, currently available at even $4 odds.

Winning a minor over 1100m on debut before placing a luckless fifth when blocked for a run in the Listed Lonhro Plate (1100m) on March 8th, the I Am Invincible colt more than hit his straps upon arriving in Brisbane; winning the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) before placing second in both the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) and Group 1 J.J. Atkins (1600m).

Placing fifth in the particularly well contested Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) first-up, Brazen Beau has been confirmed to be partnered by renowned Hong Kong-based jockey Joao Moreira for the first time this weekend, and may be worth consideration as a selection in Roman Consul Stakes quinella or trifecta bet.

Arguably offering punters the best value for money of all runners confirmed for the 2014 Roman Consul Stakes, Time For War is also yet to receive much attention in markets, but is reportedly in excellent condition and more than worth consideration for a bet.

Unable to string together much of a consistent run of form while still registering several positive results over autumn and winter, Time For War announcing his racing arrival with an impressive win in the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) first-up before progressing to a credible fourth in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m).

Beating just one runner home in the Champagne Classic, the Snitzel colt returned to the winner’s circle in the BRC Sires’ Produce most notably on May 24th.
