One of the seven Group status showdowns on the Super Saturday of Racing programme running at Flemington this weekend is the $300,000 Group 2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) and here the Races.com.au team have the winning 2011 VRC Sires Produce Stakes betting tips.
A set weights race for two-year-olds, the 2011 VRC Sires Produce Stakes will run as Flemington Race 3 this Saturday March 12, jumping at 12:40pm (AEDST).
The pronounced favourite in the VRC Sires Produce Stakes betting odds at Luxbet is #3 Helmet sitting at a quote of around $2.30 to win.
Drawn ideally on the rails which is a major advantage in these two-year-old showdowns, Peter Snowden’s Exceed and Excel colt Helmet is seeking their third win on the trot having claimed back-to-back 1200m events at Rosehill last month.
However the rivals Helmet has defeated to date weren’t in the same class as the company they face on Saturday and the Races.com.au team are tipping an upset Flemington Race 3 result and have #1 Masthead rated special to win.
Flemington Race 3 Tips – 2011 VRC Sires Produce Stakes Betting
- Races.com.au Favourite: #1 Masthead – Rated Special to Win – Bet now at Luxbet
- Best Place / Exotic Bets: #2 Delago’s Lad, #5 Rockshaft and #3 Grand Britannia
The Lee Freedman-trained Masthead has shown great skill over their four career starts that included a win in the Inglis 2YO Premier in mid-February and most recently a game third behind the mighty Sepoy in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on February 26.
In the Blue Diamond Masthead beat home a number of more fancied juveniles including a number of other VRC Sires Produce Stakes hopefuls such as Delago’s Lad (6th), Running Tall (7th) and Grand Britannia (8th).
On Saturday Masthead jumps from barrier seven and will have champion hoop Craig Williams in the mount, he is currently sitting as the $4 second elect in the VRC Sires Produce Stakes odds.
Adding even more value to the winning VRC Sires Produce Stakes Quinella is Delgao’s Lad, our pick to finish second behind Masthead.
John Mcardle’s improving colt having run third to Masthead in the Inglis Premier before finishing sixth in the Blue Diamond after missing the start, a better jump and they have every chance here.
For third and fourth we are tipping Rockshaft and Grand Britannia.
The Robert Smerdon-trained Rockshaft is sitting at juicy double-figure odds in the markets at Luxbet, great value we think considering the well-bred Choisir colt won the Group 3 Breeders’ Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville last Saturday.
