The betting markets have opened on this Saturday’s $180,000 Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) with champion mare Hot Danish set to start as the clear favourite in the feature mare’s race on Caulfield Cup Day.
Leading online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au installed Les Bridge’s dual group 1 winning mare Hot Danish as the pronounced favourite to win the 2010 Tristarc Stakes, currently at a quote of $3.50.
Hot Danish has drawn wide in barrier 12, but coming off back-to-back wins in the Premiere Stakes and The Shorts, the seven-year-old is the classiest runner of the field and is sure to get plenty of money come in for her.
Three other Tristarc Stakes starters are at single figure odds to win on Saturday, with Live In Sin the next shortest-priced mare paying $8 at Ladbrokes.com.au.
Peter Moody’s consistent five-year-old is set to start one on the inside of Hot Danish, which will give Live In Sin a good chance to get to the front with the favourite, and has also been in great form this season placing third in the Let’s Elope Stakes at Flemington, winning a mares handicap at Caulfield two starts back and coming off a third in the Angst Stakes.
Following in the Tristarc Stakes odds are then equal $8.50 third favourites Palacio De Cristal and No Evidence Needed.
Both runners look an excellent chance to cause an upset, the Grahame Begg-trained Palacio De Cristal drawn ideally in barrier three and coming off a first-up win in the Blazer Stakes at Flemington.
John Thompson’s No Evidence Needed has suffered a blow with a wide barrier 14 draw, but the Let’s Elope Stakes winner was a Group 1 runner-up in the Rupert Clarke Stakes here last month and also ran a gallant second to Palacio De Cristal last-start in the Blazer carrying the same 56.5kg weight she is allocated for Saturday.
One longer-priced mare in the Tristarc Stakes that looks a good roughie to add into a Trifecta with the favourites is I’m A Hussy currently paying $21 for a win and $5.50 to Place through Sportsbet.
The 2010 Harrolds Tristarc Stakes is set to run as Race 9 at Caulfield on Saturday due to jump at 4:50pm (AEDST).
