Sandown Race 5 Betting Tips – 2011 Chairman’s Stakes Field

Today Wednesday February 9 Sandown Racecourse is host to a cracker 10-race programme, one of the headline events being the re-scheduled $100,000 Listed Chairman’s Stakes (1000m) running as Race 5, and here we have the exclusive 2011 Chairman’s Stakes Betting Tips.

The Chairman’s Stakes field features 10 promising two-year-olds following the early scratching of #7 Executive Star and #10 Helping Hand.

Punters around Australia will be waiting for the Chairman’s Stakes to jump at 2:10pm (AEDST) this afternoon as a number of juveniles heading towards the $1 million Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield on February 26 are facing off and the race will be a great indicator for this upcoming feature.

Leading the Chairman’s Stakes betting odds is #5 Atomic, Lee Freedman’s unraced Commands colt making their highly anticipated debut today.

Currently Luxbet have Atomic at a quote of $2.90 to win despite the debutant drawing wide with barrier nine.

Atomic faces a tough first career run today facing a field of strong contenders and we fancy an upset with #2 Covered In Class to win at juicy odds.

Sandown Race 5 Tips – Chairman’s 2YO Stakes

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #2 Covered In Class – Rated Special to Win at $17 Luxbet
  • Best Place / Exotic Bets: #6 Cape Canaveral and #1 Dinner Date

The Peter Moody-trained Exceed And Excel colt Covered In Class is at a generous price of $17 to win the Chairman’s Stakes today through Luxbet, having been backed in from their opening quote of $21.

Covered In Class won on debut by an impressive three lengths on New Year’s Day, but failed to finish within four lengths of winner Holdontoyourhorses at their next start in the Thomas North Plate (1100m) at Caulfield a week later.

Today they have a favourable barrier five draw and with the Chairman’s Stakes down to 1000m, Covered In Class should thrive with the shorter distance and also the drop back in weight to 55.5kg.

Also on debut today is Cape Canaveral who is a top fancy paying $5.50 through Luxbet.

Sure to make this a close affair after drawing well with gate three, the Danny O’Brien-trained Starcraft colt is our favourite to finish second behind Covered In Class.

For third place we like the look of Dinner Date, David Hayes’ improving Mossman filly first-up for the season after claiming their debut win in the Listed Merson Cooper (1000m) here at Sandown on November 13.
