PRICE ‘FALLS’ AFTER STERLING SILVER SLIPPER EFFORT

BETFAIR punters have reacted to Elite Falls fast finishing second behind Satin Shoes in today’s ATC Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) by slicing her Golden Slipper pre-post quote in half from $40 into $20.

The John O’Shea-trained filly was spotting joint leaders Satin Shoes and Straight Gold a considerable start in the $125,000 throwing down a challenge to the eventual winner inside the last 100m to get within a half-length at the finish.

“Elite Falls has run second to Satin Shoes at their last two runs – the Widden and now the Silver Slipper – both at 1100m,” Vinery’s Conor Phelan said.

“Each time, Elite Falls has been motoring home and taking ground off Satin Shoes with every stride. I think once they get to 1200m, in a fast run race like the Golden Slipper always is, we could well see a different result. Take nothing away from the winner though – they are both very good fillies.”
