Victorian colt Extreme Choice will join an elite group if he can take out the $3.5 million Golden Slipper - the world's richest two-year-old race - at Rosehill tomorrow.

Only five horses have saluted in the Slipper after winning the Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield, with Sepoy the last to achieve the feat in 2011.

Plenty have tried and failed, including Samaready and Earthquake in recent years. Both ran placings in the Slipper after their triumphs in Melbourne.

Extreme Choice has been compared to Sepoy by a number of racing experts, and although Sepoy did lose his first start in Sydney after the Blue Diamond, he bounced back to take out the Slipper in dominant style.

Extreme Choice does not have the luxury of a run the clockwise way, and if he doesn't perform at close to the level he produced to win the Blue Diamond then he won't be able to win the Golden Slipper.

Outside of Extreme Choice there are a host of winning chances, including stablemate Flying Artie, one-time favourite Capitalist, Astern, Kiss And Make Up and Good Standing, while the $31 available for Yankee Rose is big overs.

There is already plenty of value available in the Golden Slipper betting market, but with Ladbrokes you can ensure that you score the best odds possible.

Ladbrokes are offering Best Of Everything Guaranteed on the race which is always one of the highlights of the Australian racing calendar. This means that if you place a fixed odds win bet, you will get the best of three totes, top fluctuation and Ladbrokes fixed price!
