One of the best Australia Day betting opportunities this year is the $100,000 Listed John Dillon Stakes (1400m) running as Caulfield Race 6 at 4:02pm (AEDST) on Wednesday January 26, and below the Races.com.au let readers in on our exclusive 2011 John Dillon Stakes race tips.
The 2011 John Dillon Stakes final field features nine quality gallopers following the early scratching of #7 Huxssen.
Favourite in the John Dillon Stakes odds is Danzylum, currently paying $2.80 through our preferred online bookmaker Luxbet.
A good barrier four draw for tomorrow and impressive last-start victory in the Listed Chester Manifold Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on January 15 for this veteran of 60 races is why the punters are getting right behind the Robbie Griffiths-trained Danzylum.
However, we think there’s more value to be found with your Australia Day bets on the John Dillon tomorrow and are tipping #10 Lady Gaga to rise and cause an upset.
Caulfield Race 6 – 2011 John Dillon Stakes Tips
- Races.com.au Favourite: #10 Lady Gaga – Rated Special to Win at $7 through Luxbet
- Best Place Bets: #3 Bonindi and #2 Danzylum
Currently paying $7 to win through Luxbet, Mick Price’s Al Maher mare Lady Gaga has drawn nicely with barrier two for tomorrow’s showdown, set to resume racing after a month spell.
Prior to the rest Lady Gaga ran dead last in the Christmas Handicap at Morphettville, but the four-year-old has freshened up since and looks ready to return to form here also nicely weighted with just 53kg.
The other runner along with favourite Danzylum who we fancy to finish in the money tomorrow is Bonindi, the double-figure chance adding some value to the Trifecta.
Six-year-old Bonindi will advantage greatly here dropping back in weight from the hefty 59kg they carried to victory last start on January 16 to just 54.5kg in the John Dillon.
