Concorde Stakes 2012 – Betting Tips

If there is one race on Saturday that is going to contain plenty of speed it is the Group 3 2012 Concorde Stakes (1100m) at Warwick Farm.

Rain Affair

Rain Affair appears set to kick off his campaign with a win on Saturday

It features a number of returning classy sprinters, some who will feature in Group 1 races this spring, as well as a few who have already kicked off their spring campaigns.

Headlining the field is short-priced favourite Rain Affair ($1.65) who is having his first start ahead of targeting some of the biggest sprint races in the country.

Trainer Joe Pride also has the second favourite in the race with the consistent Tiger Tees ($6.00) and the pair are followed by Group 1 winner Atomic Force ($7.00) and Satin Shoes ($8.50).

The Winner

#2 Rain Affair $1.65

He’s not at his best first-up but that shouldn’t matter as the Manikato-bound sprinter is a class above this field.

Look for him to get out of the gates at phenomenal speed with stablemate Tiger Tees and he should just be far too good towards the back end of the race.

With a record of 11 wins from 15 starts he doesn’t miss often and three of those losses were at Group 1 level.

The Placings

#5 Tiger Tees $6.00 and #9 Mrs Onassis $13.00

It should be a Pride-trained quinella on Saturday as Tiger Tees is a serious sprinter.

Races in a similar front-running style to Rain Affair, albeit with perhaps slightly less ability, but should be good and quick enough to trail him home over the short trip.

Mrs Onassis was impressive to win the Starlight Stakes first-up on August 18 and if she brings that form again she should give a good showing on Saturday.
