The action of the 2010 Caulfield Cup Day continues with Race 3 today, the $100,000 Listed Sportingbet Stakes (2000m) scheduled to start at 12:45pm (AEDST).
The 2010 Sportingbet Stakes drew a 12-horse field of three-year-old fillies, but currently nine are left in contention following the scratchings of #1 Precious Lorraine, #6 Very Cherry and #9 Elite Ebony due to the unsuitable track conditions at Caulfield Racecourse today.
Today’s Caulfield betting is wide open in many of the races including Race 3 as there are four runners at single figure odds to win at Ladbrokes.com.au.
Topping the markets at the moment is Speed Of Dark paying $3.80, the Grant Craven-trained filly coming off two Group status runs and dropping back a bit in class today making them a top pick.
However, the Races.com.au team have a longer-priced selection we are tipping to cause an upset with #2 Zutara at $4.80.
Caulfield – Race 3 – Sportingbet Stakes
- Races.com.au Favourite: #2 Zutara – Rated Special to Win at $4.80 Ladbrokes.com.au
- Best Place Picks: #3 Speed Of Dark and #5 Golden Tabby Ladbrokes.com.au
Being drawn out wide on the Heavy track will be an advantage for Gai Waterhouse’s well-bred Encosta De Lago filly Zutara who will have in-form hoop Nash Rawiller in the mount.
We still fancy Speed Of Dark to finish in the money and a definite runner to lock in a Trifecta with Zutara and our third pick Golden Tabby.
Golden Tabby is a good light-weight contender with just 54.5kg on their back today, the consistent Lee Freedman-trained filly coming off back-to-back wins.
