Cockram Stakes 2012 – Betting Update and Tips

If the market is anything to go by, the Group 3 2012 Cockram Stakes (1200m) is set to be a close affair with a number of horses crowding the top end in the early betting.

Current favourite to win the $150,000 mares’ race is unbeaten four-year-old Lucky Penny ($5.00) who is slightly ahead of Lady Melksham ($5.50), Avoid Lightning ($5.50) and Glows ($6.00).

The Caulfield track is expected to be heavy for the bumper day of racing so horses with wet track credentials should be considered when deciding your winners.

With a number of horses resuming first-up to take on some in-form runners, the Cockram Stakes is set to be an interesting affair.

Don’t have time to do the form? Never mind, have done a thorough analysis and bring to your our expert selections.

The Winner

#9 Avoid Lightning $5.50

This Adelaide sprinter may be stepping up in class and racing at 1200 metres for the first time but she has terrific wet-track form and is at the top of her game.

Unbeaten from two starts in wet conditions, the four-year-old is chasing a fifth consecutive victory after some impressive performances in Adelaide over the winter.

The David Jolly-trained mare made her stakes debut at the end of last month and she flew home to win the Listed Lightning Stakes by nearly three lengths.

The Placings

#14 Lady Melksham $5.50 and #11 Bonaria $12.00

Lady Melksham has similar credentials to our top picks Avoid Lightning and should thrive in the wet conditions tomorrow.

The lightly-raced four-year-old has won three from four starts, including twice on wet tracks, and impressed when stepping up to black-type racing to finish third in June’s Creswick Stakes.

Bonaria represents value at $12.00 and while she is stepping up in class she has won her last two starts on wet tracks by three lengths and there is no reason why she can’t again perform in the wet tomorrow.
