The Golden Slipper is Australia's premier two-year-old race and with four other Group 1 features run on the Rosehill card, it headlines one of the biggest race meetings of the year.

With a total prize pool of $5 milliion, the most sought after juvenile race in the land has lended itself to many popular champions over the years, with an honor roll which includes past winners such as Todman, Sky High, Vain, Manikato, Miss Finland, Sepoy and Pierro.

At $2.20 with EliteBet, Storm Boy heads the market for the 2024 Golden Slipper.

2024 Golden Slipper Tips

2024 Golden Slipper Best Bet - Storm Boy

He justified Golden Slipper favouritism with a return win in the Skyline Stakes on March 2, which Storm Boy arrived to off just one trial following his Magic Millions 2YO Classic triumph.

Only three horses in history have completed the Magic Millions 2YO Classic/Golden Slipper winning double, with Capitalist being the last horse to achieve that feat back in 2016.

Storm Boy's relished a high pressure affair when recording a 2.5-length victory in that Gold Coast success and that race rated superbly, especially for a two-year-old race.

Ideally, somewhere between barrier five and ten would've been preferable for this big son of Justify, but that's maybe stretching for an excuse with the standout juvenile of this crop to date.
2024 Golden Slipper Next Best Bet - Hayasugi

Golden Slipper's are rarely short on pressure and with six Waterhouse & Bott-trained gallopers in the field (along with an emergency), they won't be hanging around early.

Hayasugi is aiming to become just the sixth two-year-old to complete the Blue Diamond/Golden Slipper winning double and Sepoy was the last to achieve that back in 2011.

Interestingly, Hayasugi was the first galloper since Sepoy to win a Preview, Prelude and Blue Diamond, with the filly coming with a wide run to complete the hat-trick on February 24.

A two-year-old who appears more comfortable with colder tactics, the Clinton McDonald-trained galloper will settle off the speed and she could be dangerous late over a strong 1200m.
2024 Golden Slipper Value Bet - Coleman

Although he disappointed as a beaten fav in the Blue Diamond Stakes, the Matt Laurie-trained colt put in an encouraging effort last Saturday when third in the Pago Pago Stakes.

Shinzo followed the same path last year when backing up from that Group 3 to win the Golden Slipper seven days later and Coleman ran the best closing splits of that race.

Given that he was one of the leading two-year-old's outside of Storm Boy leading into the Blue Diamond, the son of Pierata does look a forgotten horse off just one bad run.

Last week's attempt was his first race day try in the clockwise direction and they often improve in their second try on the other leg, while Coleman will do no work in transit.
