The Gai Waterhouse trained Scarlet Rain’s odds for the Group 1 $3.5m Longines Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on March 19 have shortened up from $41 to $26 with Ladbrokes.com.au following her impressive win.

The Manhattan Rain filly was only having her second race start on Saturday and kept her unbeaten record intact after scoring on debut over 1100m in a Two Years Old Plate at Rosehill on January 2.

“She’s in the Golden Slipper now, she’s an absolute natural and does it with ease,’ Waterhouse said.

“Oh she’s going to the Slipper, you don’t have to worry about that. Just watch, you’ll see.”

Waterhouse has likened Scarlet Rain to her Group 1 winning mare Sweet Idea who as a two year old ran a short head second to Real Surreal in the 2013 $2m Magic Millions 2yo Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast and was then placed third behind stablemate Overreach and Sidestep in the Golden Slipper Stakes.

“She’s a very talented filly who reminds me a lot of Sweet Idea,’ Waterhouse said.

“She has the most wonderfully efficient action, just skips over the ground, and it doesn’t matter if it’s dry or wet.’’

Waterhouse reported on twitter on Sunday morning that Scarlet Rain had pulled up in great order and will decide in the next ten days where she will run next in her lead up to the Golden Slipper Stakes.

“Scarlet Rain has pulled up very well after her dominant win at Royal Randwick. Looking a picture at Sunday Owners,” Waterhouse tweeted.

The Team Snowden trained Capitalist heads the Golden Slipper Stakes market order at $3.60 following his dominant win in the $2m Magic Millions 2yo Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on January 9.

The John O’Shea trained pair of Astern at $9 and Calliope at $13 are the next two in the betting ahead of the David Vandyke’s Yankee Rose and Victorian colt Extreme Choice at $15.
