Carlyon Stakes 2012 – Tipping Guide

Spring is near which means the good horses are coming back and there is no shortage of quality in the Listed $120,000 2012 Carlyon Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley.

Atomic Force

Atomic Force is the tip to win the Carlyon Stakes

Currently topping the 13-horse field in the market is last-start winner African Pulse who is being offered at $3.90.

Only Group 1 winner Atomic Force ($4.20) is close in the market with the next best challengers Green Birdie, Unanimously and Anabandana who are all being offered at $9.00.

If you don’t have time to do the form or are unsure who to back in this weekend’s Melbourne feature keep reading as the experts have done the hard work for you.

The Winner

#1 Atomic Force $4.20

This is a class horse who won at Group 1 level in New Zealand in the Railway Stakes in January.

Combine that class with a terrific first-up record (never missed a place) his above average ability on soft tracks and Atomic Force should begin his spring campaign on a winning note.

The Placings

#13 Royal Bender $11.00 and #10 African Pulse $3.90

Royal Bender is an ultra-consistent performer and while he is yet to win at stakes level he hasn’t been far away.

Showed his appreciation for a wet track last start when getting beaten on the line in the Monash Stakes and there is no reason why he can’t repeat that performance here.

African Pulse was super when winning first-up and the only query against him here is a wide barrier draw (15).

The wet track could see a number of horses scratched and allow him to start a little closer which would have him right in the mix again.

Think Group 1 winner Atomic Force can get the chocolates in first-up? Fancy another runner? Whoever you are backing, be sure to get great value odds by betting at
