Lightning Stakes 2011 Place & Roughie Best Bets

The 2011 Lightning Stakes is the marquee race on the Flemington Saturday race programme today and although all the money is on firm favourite Black Caviar to win, we take a look at the best Lightning Stakes place and roughie bets to add value to your wagers.

The $750,000 Group 1 Lightning Stakes (1000m) is set to run as Flemington Race 6 at 4:10pm (AEDST) today.

Featuring a quality field of nine sprinters following the early scratching of #8 Stirling Grove, the Lightning Stakes betting markets have been completely dominated by raging favourite Black Caviar.

Even at her odds-on price of $1.35 in the Lightning Stakes odds at Luxbet, we are tipping Peter Moody’s unbeaten mare to maintain her impeccable record with another impressive victory today.

However, with the favourite at such short odds and the punters shying away from any other runner in the Lightning Stakes field, we are still keen to help our punters win big today.

That’s why below we have a look at some of the longer-priced roughies lining up in the Lightning Stakes this arvo to see where the best value bets to finish in the money behind the favourite are at.

2011 Lightning Stakes Best Place Bets:

Hay List

Hay List is the second favourite for the 2011 Lightning Stakes and has a strong, consistent record

  • #1 Hay List ($5 Luxbet) – Five-year-old Hay List is the obvious second favourite at $5 in the Lightning Stakes markets at Luxbet. He has the Dead track form, the consistent record and the class. Another day without Black Caviar to face off against and this would be Hay List’s race to win.
  • #2 Grand Duels ($41 Luxbet) – Evergreen seven-year-old who has a great race in him especially looking at his brilliant record down the Flemington straight. He’s in awesome form winning the Kensington Stakes at this tack and distance last start, his third victory on the trot. Faces tough competition but is a great roughie for the Place bets.
  • #3 True Persuasion ($41 Luxbet) – Placed at Group level behind Hay List and Black Caviar during the spring so don’t be surprised if they can do again, also has a good first-up record.
  • #6 King Pulse ($26 Luxbet) – Back to the track for the first time since badly injured on Newmarket Handicap Day last year in the hail storms. Hard to see them win first-up after so long out of the scene, but has the same freakish raw talent as the favourite to run third or fourth here.

So don’t just back the favourite to win in the Lightning Stakes markets.

Give yourself the best chance to enjoy a nice winning payout by jumping in on the exciting exotic wagers at Luxbet using our above picks in a Box Trifecta or First Four bet!
