Geelong Classic 2012 – Odds and Tips

Spring racing means the action never stops and as part of Geelong Cup Day tomorrow a promising group of three-year-olds will contest the Listed 2012 Geelong Classic (2200m). 

For many it will be used as a lead-up to the 2012 Victoria Derby and the betting suggests it will be an open race with both Gai Waterhouse-trained Our Desert Warrior ($3.80) and Darley colt Solemn ($3.80) topping the market.

Our Desert Warrior will be having the third start of his career after winning first-up at Kembla Grange before running fourth in a midweek race at Warwick Farm earlier this month.

Next best in the market is Matt Laurie’s Escado ($4.80) who is followed closely by Correggio ($6.50) and Road Trippin ($7.50).

Others in the market include Mick Kent’s Malabar Man ($12.00) and the Lee Freedman and Grahame Rogerson-trained Danas Best ($17.00).

Not sure who to back in the Geelong Classic? Don’t worry as the Races.com.au team have been hard at work to bring you our very best selections.

The Winner

#1 Road Trippin ($7.50)

Has been set for the Derby since the beginning of the spring and finally gets up to a really suitable trip here.

Has the ability to relax and with Craig Williams riding from barrier five will be given every chance.

He’s will also appreciate a drop back in class after running fourth to Pierro in the Stutt Stakes and finishing a distant fifth in the Caulfield Guineas.

The Placings

#2 Escado ($4.80) and #6 Correggio ($6.50)

Escado also drops back to easier company after solid midfield results at Caulfield and Flemington and is another who should appreciate the rise in distance.

Correggio is a progressive horse who has improved with every step up in distance so fat up to a five-length win over 2080m at Cranbourne earlier this month.

Only query is a step up in class but he’s improved with every test so far and looks ready to step out in this company.
