Japanese raiders World Ace and Real Impact have been kept safe in betting for Saturday’s George Ryder Stakes at Randwick.

Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has opened Real Impact and World Ace at $7.50 for the Rosehill Group 1. Caulfield Guineas winner Shooting To Win, likely to be the only three-year-old in the race, is $4.40 favourite ahead of Cosmic Endeavour ($4.80).

“The Japanese raiders Real Impact and World Ace are serious horses and Real Impact has been well supported in early betting. The Ryder is shaping as a great race and it won’t surprise if an international takes home the trophy,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.

Coincidentally former overseas based galloper Contributor heads betting for the Ranvet Stakes. An impressive last start winner of the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes, Contributor is the short priced favourite at $2.00 for the Ranvet, but Lucia Valentina ($5.50) is very popular with punters.
