The last race on the Victoria Derby Day card at Flemington this Saturday is the $250,000 Group 3 AAMI Business Insurance Stakes (1400m), which has drawn a 12 horse final field.
The 2010 AAMI Business Insurance Stakes, formerly known as the Chatham Stakes, will be contested by 12 quality gallopers on Saturday including notable acceptors Centennial Park, Jungle Ruler, Demerit and We’re Gonna Rock.
The David Payne-trained Centennial Park is an improving five-year-old who ran seventh in the Epsom Handicap last start.
Dropping back in class and distance on Saturday and drawn well in barrier five makes Centennial Park one of the top picks.
The Peter White-trained Jungle Ruler relished the Heavy track at Caulfield two weeks back and was able to finish third to Rothera in the Moonga Stakes, so if the ground is soft on Saturday they stand a good chance to Place again here.
Peter Snowden’s Lonhro four-year-old Demerit has placed fourth in both their spring starts this season and is tipped to improve on Saturday so include them in the exotics at Luxbet.
Sure to start high up the betting markets is the Mark Kavanagh-trained We’re Gonna Rock.
The Fastnet Rock four-year-old is coming off an impressive second to More Joyous in the Toorak Handicap and is due to be ridden by in-form hoop Michael Rodd.
The 2010 AAMI Business Insurance Stakes will run as Race 9 at Flemington on Saturday and for the best odds on the race and all the other Victoria Derby Day features make sure you sign up with leading online bookmaker Luxbet today!
