Pattison Canadian International Stakes Betting Tips – Imperial Monarch Marches To Victory

Posted by Marco Sussman on 10/11/2012 6:40:22 PM

Online betting players will get a lot of international flavor (specifically from Ireland and Great Britain) in the Grade-1 Pattison Canadian International Stakes at Woodbine on Sunday. There is only one horse from outside of Ireland and Great Britain, and the winner will hail from the former as the youngest horse in the field.

What: Horse Betting
When: Sunday, October 14th, post time TBA
Where: Woodbine Racetrack, Toronto, ON
Pick: Imperial Monarch

(Field is subject to change)

Afsare has had a fantastic 2012 so far, scoring a win and three second-place results in five starts, including a runner-up at the Grade-1 Arlington Million, one of the biggest Breeders Cup prep races. This five-year-old from Great Britain was making his North American debut at the Arlington Million (at Arlington Park), and made three starts last year in races that are 1.5 miles long.

Al Khali’s last start also came at Woodbine in the Grade-1 Northern Dancer Turf Stakes, where he finished second to Wigmore Hall, and this six-year-old from Kentucky has been in some big races. In 2012, Al Khali has made six starts, finishing first in an allowance race, and he has finished second or third in his last three outings.

Allied Powers hasn’t finished higher than fifth in his last five starts, which makes a bit of a horse betting longshot in this field. A seven-year-old from Ireland, Allied Powers is probably on his last legs in the racing game, but you never know when an upset will strike.

Brown Panther is racing in North America for the first time and is aiming to make the Breeders Cup Marathon in November, so the 1.5-mile distance shouldn’t bother this four-year-old from Ireland. Brown Panther has finished third or better in three of five starts this season, including a win in the non-graded Pontefract Castle stakes.

Dandido is coming off a win in the Grade-3 September Stakes at Kempton Park, and this five-year-old from Great Britain is making his way to North America for the first time. In six 2012 starts, Dandido has finished third or better five times, but the win at Kempton Park was where he finally broke through.

Forte Dei Marmi has made his last two starts at Woodbine, winning the Grade-2 Sky Classic and then finishing third in the Northern Dancer Turf Stakes, which is also 1.5 miles long. Yet another entrant from Great Britain, this six-year-old gelding seems to be a horse that gets stronger as the race goes on.

Gatewood also hails from Great Britain and is coming off a second-place run in the Grade-2 Grand Prix de Deauville in France, but he hasn’t won in his last two starts, which is when the four-year colt made the move from handicap races. However, he did finish third in the Grade-3 Glorious Stakes, which is 1.5 miles.

Imperial Monarch is another Irish entrant and the three-year-old doesn’t have the experience that the rest of the field has, but he has won three of his four starts. That includes an impressive win in the Grade-1 Grand Prix de Paris, which was run at 1.5 miles. Imperial Monarch, like Gatewood, is aiming for the Breeders Cup Turf, but he may also race in the Grade-1 Champion Stakes in Berkshire next week.

Joshua Tree comes from Ireland and will be making his 10th start of 2012, which includes a win in the Grade-3 Prix Kergorlay and a recent third-place run in the Grade-2 Prix Foy, which is a mile and a half as well. This five-year-old finished second in this race last year and won in 2010, so he obviously likes Woodbine.

Musketier came in sixth here last year and this will be his 20th consecutive start in a graded-stakes race, in which he has claimed four victories. The 10-year-old is looking to bounce back from a sixth-place run in the Northern Dancer, but will horse betting sharps be scared off by his age?

By comparison, Reliable Man is a four-year-old that won three times in five starts in 2011, but hasn’t won in five 2012 starts. He finished second in the Grade 3-La Coupe de Maisons Laffitte, but will Reliable Man, from Great Britain, adapt well to North American soil?

Scalo ran fourth in the Northern Dancer, which followed a third-place run in the Sky Classic, so he should be used to Woodbine by now. In all nine of his starts, this five-year-old has been in graded-stakes races, so the talent level of the field shouldn’t be an issue to Scalo.

Wigmore Hall rolled to the win in the Northern Dancer and will likely come in as the de facto favorite, or at least one of the favorites. This Irish five-year-old gelding also won the Northern Dancer last year, so he obviously has no trouble with the 1.5-mile distance.

How It Will Play Out

Wigmore Hall will be a factor in what should be an exciting race, but look for the youth movement to come through as Imperial Monarch should be your sports betting play.
