Listed 2011 TAB 50th Birthday Stakes TipsCurrent favourite with the punters for the race is the Peter Snowden trained #7 Launay.
The four-year-old Gelding by Lonhro has had 12 career starts for five wins and four places.
He hasn’t missed a place since a run in June last year at Eagle Farm but returned to form the very next week with a second in the Queensland Guineas.
Over this track he’s two from two and two from four over this distance.
At $2.65 he’s a clear favourite on Luxbet so obviously our number one pick right? Wrong!
We’ve built a strong case for #9 Belgietto at more generous $5 odds.
The four-year-old gelding won an incredible four in a row last preparation including two on the Flemington track.
His first up run this year was a second place behind Diplomatic Force taking his overall record at Flemington to two wins and a place from four appearances.
He has a better barrier than Launay and that’s the only way we can split them, so might as well take the better odds in a photo on the line.
Rounding out the top three has to be #1 Danzylum ($5.00) with the seven-year-old still mixing it with the best last start in the CF Orr stakes.
He came fourth there but previous to that won two in a row, both races worth more than $100,000.
Starting from barrier four he may be top weight at 58kgs but that’s actually one kilogram less than last start so he’ll run out the trip.
This trifecta is a very real possibility and could be worth boxing given how tight these horses are on form.
