The Golden Slipper is the holy grail of juvenile racing around the world and Australia's best two-year-old thoroughbreds will take the track in March to win the riches.

$3.5 million is on the line at Rosehill and there have been some champion winners in recent history. The past winners' list includes the likes of Sebring, Sepoy, Pierro, Mossfun and She Will Reign.

Who will be the new 2YO champion in Australia?

2019 Golden Slipper Best Bet - Yes Yes Yes @ 5.50

Yes Yes Yes stormed into Golden Slipper calculations with a win in the Group 2 Todman Stakes at Randwick last start and the Rubick colt looks a big chance to score at each-way odds.

Formerly with Darren Weir and now with Chris Waller, the two-year-old is a winner of three from four starts and he went under the radar with three of those starts coming in Melbourne, but punters were made aware last time out.

The half-way length win forced bookmakers to put him on the second line of betting and he's a leading contender at Rosehill.

2019 Golden Slipper Best Each Way - Microphone @ 5.00

Godolphin has won every juvenile feature this season by capturing the Magic Millions and Blue Diamond. Microphone could make it a clean sweep as the well-bred son of Exceed And Excel has outstanding form this season.

He scored a 2.25-length win in the Talindert Stakes at Flemington before winning the Skyline Stakes last start with ease. Second in that race was Cosmic Force, which has since won by a massive margin in a top city race.

He looks bomb proof and we're not surprised to see his odds firm.

2019 Golden Slipper Best Roughie - Mclaren @ 101.00

McLaren might be at triple-figure odds, but with the track expected to be a touch wet, that brings him into contention.

Since winning on debut his form has been average but he's a knockout chance.

Best Bet: Yes Yes Yes - 5.50 @ bet365
Best Each Way: Microphone - 5.00 @ bet365
Best Roughie: Mclaren - 101.00 @ bet365
