Up & Coming Stakes 2012 Form Guide & Betting Tips

One of the headline races at Warwick Farm this Saturday is the 2012 Up & Coming Stakes, a detailed form guide analysis and the Races.com.au’s exclusive betting tips for which are detailed below.

Due to jump as Warwick Farm Race 5 at 3:10pm, this year’s edition of the $125,000 Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes (1300m) has drawn a final field of 10 with Sumarand from the Gai Waterhouse stables the pronounced favourite.

Coming off a big five length win on debut at Hawkesbury from August 9, the More Than Ready colt has eased out slightly in the Up & Coming Stakes odds at bookmaker.com.au from $2.05 to $2.10 but is still the short priced top elect.

But is the shortie the one the Races.com.au team is tipping?

Or do we have a longer-priced hopeful such as the Peter Moody-trained Albrecht ($5), the rails-drawn Urquidez ($8) or even Champagne Stakes minor placegetter Tatra ($15) rated special to win?

Having gone over the 2012 Up & Coming Stakes field and form guide, below we have the must know betting facts and stats on the race to check out before you place your bets.

2012 Up & Coming Stakes Tips

  • #4 Albrecht ($5) from #8 Sumarand ($2.10) and #3 Urquidez ($8)

Based on the above info we tipping Albrecht, who has one run extra under their belt and who won over 1250m on debut, to just get the better of the favourite Sumarand.

For punters looking for a roughie to add into exotics, Bart Cummings’ nicely-bred clot Maximilian looks way over the odds at $34.

They ran a good third to fellow Up & Coming Stakes hopefuls Nediym’s Quest ($8) on debut at Newcastle on August 8 and although they go up in distance and class have the ability to rise.
