John Dillon Stakes 2013 – Betting Preview and Tips

A bumper card takes place at Caulfield on Saturday with four stakes races including the Listed 2013 John Dillon Stakes (1400m).

Ten horses will line up to contest the 1400-metre feature for which in-form gelding British General is currently a short-priced favourite at $2.70.

The Ballarat gelding has put together three straight victories at Flemington but will have to adapt to a new venue and rise in weights here.

Following the favourite in the betting is lightly-raced gelding It’s Crunch Time ($6.00) who is slightly in front of last-start mid-week winner Le Remas ($6.50) and Chester Manifold Stakes runner-up Dash For Viz ($6.50).

Others in the John Dillon Stakes market include Tony Vasil’s last-start placegetter Under The Eiffel ($9) and Peter Moody’s Group 2 winner Highly Recommended ($13).

Not sure who to back in the John Dillon Stakes? Don’t have time to do the form? Don’t worry, the team have been hard at work to bring you our very best selections.

The Winner

#8 Dash For Viz $6.50

Keen on this Robbie Griffiths-trained gelding to turn the tables on British General after finishing runner-up in their past two match-ups.

A change of venue could prove troublesome for the favourite and Dash For Viz meets him 2.5kg better at the weights.

Has won at the distance before and drawn handily in barrier six with Craig Newitt aboard.

The Placings

#6 It’s Crunch Time $6.00 and #2 Highly Recommended $13.00

It’s Crunch Time looks well placed to challenge for victory here. His record of six wins and four minor placings from 13 starts shows he’s never too far away from the finish and should get a lovely rails run from the inside barrier.

Peter Moody-trained entire Highly Recommended hasn’t been in the best form this preparation but was a Group 2 winner last autumn and should appreciate a return to his home track after two starts in Sydney.
