Salinger Stakes Betting Tips – Victoria Derby Day Race 8 at Melbourne Cup Carnival

The next race to jump at Flemington’s Victoria Derby Day today is Race 8 – the $300,000 Group 2 Salinger Stakes (1200m) 4:25pm (AEDST).

The 2010 Salinger Stakes final field now features just 12 runners after the earlier scratching of #2 All Silent and #4 Eagle Falls.

Betting has now been opened right up with three runners sharing $5 favouritism at Luxbet, Catapulted, Set For Fame and Dubleanny.

Of the three favourites, the Races.com.au team have Catapulted as the top pick and are backing them to win the Salinger.

Flemington – Race 8 – Salinger Stakes

Races.com.au Favourite: #3 Catapulted – Rated Special to Win at $5 Luxbet
Best Place Bets: #8 Set For Fame and #7 Beaded – Luxbet

The Mark Kavanagh-trained Catapulted is drawn out wide, which is ideal now that the Flemington track has copped plenty of rain and the inside running likely to be chopped up.

Catapulted loves the Straight Flemington track, and even though they are untested on heavy ground, look the superior sprinter having twice placed second to Hay List this season.

The other top picks to add into the Trifecta are known wet tracker Set For Fame, Peter Moody’s top mare having won the Caulfield Sprint on a Heavy track last start, and Beaded resuming after a long spell.
