Cosmic Force moves into be Slipper favourite

The Deep Field colt Cosmic Force has come from nowhere to be at the top of the TAB.com.au market for Saturday's $3.5m, Group 1 Longines Golden Slipper (1200 metres).

Considered a $51 chance prior to winning the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes over 1200m on the Heavy 10 track last Saturday, Cosmic Force was in to $9 after that and $6 prior to the draw, however, after coming up with barrier two is now a $5 favourite.

The Team Snowden runner heads the market in front of the Godolphin pair of Microphone and Tenley at $6 while Yes Yes Yes, which had been the $5 favourite prior to the draw, is out to $7 after coming up with gate 19.

“Cosmic Force handled the wet perfectly in winning last Saturday’s Pago Pago and it makes sense that he is favourite this week as we are expecting similar conditions for the Golden Slipper,” TAB’s Andrew Georgiou said.

“Two of the Godolphin runners in Microphone and Tenley are on the second line of betting and have been extremely popular over the past few weeks.

“Another of the Godolphin horses, Pin Sec, has gone $21-$17 since the draw this morning.”
