A particularly classy field of 10 mares have been confirmed for this weekend’s Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield Racecourse, offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning bet.
Having returned to racing in typically strong form this time in, Catkins has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in Tristarc Stakes betting markets and is currently available at odds of $2.90 with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
Securing an impressive total of 12 race wins and a further eight minor places from her 25 competitive starts so far, Catkins is arguably the country’s classiest and most high-achieving runner yet to break through for a maiden victory at the highest level of racing.
Winning the Group 3 Eliza Park International Stakes (1600m) and finishing an agonisingly close second in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) most notably during the 2013 Spring Carnival, the Dubawi mare claimed three wins and a place from six appearances through autumn this year highlighted by victories in the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m) and Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m).
Winning the Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) first-up this time before placing a close second in the Group 3 Golden Pendant (1400m) most recently, all signs seem to point towards another strong Catkins victory in the 2014 Tristarc Stakes.
Cutting in from opening odds of $4.20 for success, Sweet Idea has so-far received the greatest share of attention from punters, who have seen the classy Gai Waterhouse runner in to a current quote of $3.30 to register as clear market mover and second favourite.
Finishing outside the places just three times in her 16 race career so far, Sweet Idea has returned to racing in career best form this year; winning both the Wyong Magic Millions Stakes (1200m) and Gold Coast Magic Millions Guineas (1400m) first-up in autumn and progressing to a strong win in the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) and close second in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) most notably.
Winning the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m) first-up this time before placing second in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) and fourth in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) last time out on September 28th, the Snitzel mare will leave from the central barrier 6 in the 2014 Tristarc Stakes and offers punters great value for money at current odds.
Likely to receive the run of the race from barrier 4, Politeness is yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of bets for success in the 2014 Tristarc Stakes but has maintained positon on the third line of betting, currently available at a quote of $5.50.
Claiming a total of three wins and as many minor places from 14 starts, Politeness has finished fourth in both the Group 3 How Now Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) so far this time in and has been charged with carrying just 56.5kgs in the 2014 Tristarc Stakes.
