The elite racing action of Super Saturday 2011 at Flemington Racecourse today is set to kick off at 11:30pm (AEDST) this morning meaning punters still have just enough time to get their bets down on Flemington Race 1 – the $150,000 Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m).
Betting on the 2011 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes is currently dominated by two equal favourites at Luxbet with the Peter Moody-trained duo of #3 Metonymy and #12 Plucky Belle firming into $4.60.
Metonymy, drawn in barrier five, caught the attention of the punters having run an eye-catching fourth in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes behind Sepoy last start.
Flemington Race 1 market firmer Plucky Belle is an interesting choice, backed in from her opening quote of $6 right into $4.60 through Luxbet despite having no form to go on as a debutant.
The Moody Factor could possibly be blinding the punters here with all the hype on his stablestar Black Caviar to win the 2011 Newmarket Handicap at Flemington Race 6 this afternoon spreading out into the other Super Saturday betting markets.
That’s why the Races.com.au team are tipping an upset in the opening Flemington showdown today and recommend our readers head to Luxbet now and back #3 Holdontoyahorses.
After opening the favourite in the Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes odds paying $4.60, the Mick Price-trained Dane Shadow filly is now out to a very generous $5 through Luxbet.
Holdontoyahorses is coming off a sound fifth in the Blue Diamond Stakes after jumping from barrier seven and despite her wide gate 10 draw here can improve and hit the line again well to win the Thoroughbred Breeders stakes today.
