Norman Robinson Stakes 2012 – Tips

A bumper 10-race card takes place at Caulfield tomorrow and one of the top support races to the Caulfield Cup is the Group 3 2012 Norman Robinson Stakes (2000m).

Philippi

Philippi is the Races.com.au tip to win the Norman Robinson Stakes

It is a lead-up race to the Victoria Derby and as such features plenty of three-year-olds who have already signalled Group 1 potential.

Stan Fox Stakes winner Kabayan is the current favourite at $2.70 ahead of unbeaten Mick Kent-trained colt Philippi ($5.00).

Others who have already proven highly competitive at stakes level are Hvasstan ($5.50), Honorius ($6.50) and Jimando ($7.50).

Unsure who to back in this competitive three-year-old feature? Don’t worry, the Races.com.au experts have been pouring over the form to bring you our very best selections.

The Winner

#3 Phillipi $5.00

A progressive colt who is still largely untapped but knows how to win. Is unbeaten from three career starts and has improved with each rise in class and distance and there is no reason why he can’t do so gain here on his to to the Derby.

Has a genuine ability to keep running through the line at the back end of the race and look for him to race just off the pace before exploding at the finish.

The Placings

#5 Hvasstan $5.50 and #1 Kabayan $2.70

Hvasstan has been set for the Derby and all signs so far suggest he can be a contender. Has improved as he has stepped in distance, winning twice over 1700m before finishing second to Philippi in the UCI Stakes after jumping from a wide barrier.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained Kabayan has always shown talent, finishing a narrow second to Sizzling in the Group 1 TJ Smith in Queensland during the winter.

Was second in the McNeil Stakes first-up this spring before running fifth in the Golden Rose and scoring a dominant win in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes over Albrecht.
