St George Stakes 2011 Tips – Blue Diamond Stakes Day Race 8 Betting

After the marquee event, the 2011 Blue Diamond Stakes, runs at Caulfield this Saturday the action continues with Race 8 the $200,000 St George Stakes (1800m) and below are the top 2011 St George Stakes betting tips.

Due to jump at 5:10pm (AEDST) at Caulfield’s Blue Diamond Stakes Day programme on Saturday, the 2011 Carlton Draught St George Stakes field features 14 top stayers.

Many of the gallopers are heading towards the $1 million Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington on March 12, including the favourite in the St George Stakes odds at Luxbet #2 Heart Of Dreams.

Mick Price’s Show A Heart gelding is currently paying $3.20 to win the St George Stakes on Saturday after running a brave second just beaten on the line by Typhoon Tracy in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on February 12, the Group 1 his if there was another stride in it.

Heart Of Dreams should step up to the 1800m distance of the St George Stakes in good style tomorrow having placed second in the same race 12 months ago.

This year they have a wide barrier 14 draw to contend from however and so the Races.com.au think there’s more value to be found backing the horse we rate special to win the St George Stakes, the fellow Mick Price-trained Spacecraft.

Caulfield Race 8 Tips – 2011 St George Stakes Betting

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #10 Spacecraft – Rated Special to Win – Bet now at Luxbet
  • Best Place Bets: #2 Heart Of Dreams and #4 Precedence

Galileo four-year-old Spacecraft ran a super second-up effort in the CF Orr Stakes last start coming in a gallant sixth, wanting a little extra distance.

Second favourite in the market paying $8 through Luxbet, Spacecraft won three straight last year around the tracks, albeit against lesser rivals.

This looks their time to step it up and show the punters which stablemate their money should have been on.

For second place we are tipping history to repeat itself and think Heart Of Dreams will be the St George Stakes runner-up for another year.

Bart Cummings’ Zabeel gelding Precedence is our tip to finish off the winning St George Stakes Trifecta.

They won second-up during the spring and the distance is ideal, they also advantage with the inside running from barrier one.

Others in the market worth including in your First Four wagers or Boxing in a Trifecta include handy Kiwi galloper Ginga Dude and genuine stayer Moudre paying $9 and $12 respectively through Luxbet.
