The first race today on Melbourne Cup Day is the AGL Solar Powered Stakes at 10:20AM AEDST. Read on for our top AGL Solar Powered Stakes tips to help you with your betting.
First up, we think there are better runs to bet on than the AGL Solar Powered Stakes, as 2 year old sprints are fairly hard to pick. There are so many better racing opportunities today with great odds available at Luxbet, so why not consider an easier race to pick?
If you just have to bet on every 2010 Melbourne Cup Day race, though, then we’ll try to help you with some quick tips.
Military Grace may be coming out of barrier 12, but she is by the same sire as Military Rose and has been firming up well in the odds. Her owners wouldn’t have bothered bringing her down from Queensland if she couldn’t perform, so we say back the favourite in this race.
Manor Lady, Chinchilla or Pimento are the safest bets for places, but Miss Holyfield is the one to watch. She finished seventh in her first race, but her barrier 1 start in this sprint should serve her well and makes a Military Grace/Miss Holyfield quinella look good for the more adventurous punter.
