Bel Sprinter Is Surprise Oakleigh Plate 2012 Betting Favourite

Bel Sprinter has firmed into favouritism for the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate this Saturday February 25, 2012, at Caulfield Racecourse.

The up and coming four-year-old has overtaken the talented Sepoyto be the $3 favourite for the race at Luxbet.

Bel Sprinter has surpassed Sepoy to become betting favourite for the 2012 Oakleigh Plate

Bel Sprinter has won five of his six race starts, including his most recent in the Listed WJ Adams Stakes.

The Bel Esprit gelding, who is a half-brother to the great Black Caviar, will be looking to claim his first Group 1 title in the 2012 Oakleigh Plate.

Jockey Ben Melham will be aboard Bel Sprinter for the 2012 Oakleigh Plate.

Melham is not 100% happy with Bel Sprinter’s barrier draw of 11 in the 18 horse field, however, believes the horse will handle the necessary race style well.

“You’d probably rather he drew out a bit, because he’s a terrific get-back, run-on type horse, but it could be worse,” Melham said.

“Bel Sprinter’s got plenty of class and he’s so well weighted.

“You’d be silly so say you’re going to beat Sepoy, but I’m sure that with the right luck we’ll give him a hell of a run for his money.

“My intention is to come out really easy and just get him to settle.”

Sepoy has drifted out to odds of $3.10 at Luxbet after originally opening at $2.50 to win the 2012 Oakleigh Plate.

Punters are unsure just how well the Elusive Quality colt will handle his first-up start, as well as his top weight allocation of 58 kilograms.

The closest horses to Bel Sprinter and Sepoy in the 2012 Oakleigh Plate betting are African Pulse and First Command, who are both paying odds of $15 at Luxbet.
