Top Two Tough to Split in 2013 Autumn Classic Betting

Victoria Derby quinella Fiveandahalfstar and Super Cool are jostling for favouritism in the betting market for the Group 2 2013 Autumn Classic (1800m) which will take place at Caulfield on Saturday.

The pair head a small eight-horse field with Fiveandahalfstar at $2.60 and Super Cool $2.90.

Fiveandahalfstar picked up where he left off when resuming in the Autumn Stakes on February 9 to storm home and finish second by a neck to Mulaazem.

The son of Hotel Grand will definitely appreciate the extra distance on offer this weekend.

Super Cool will also enjoy the longer trip and was solid first-up when trailing home Fiveandahalfstar to finish third in the Autumn Stakes.

The only runner that comes close to the top pair in the market is High Shot who occupies the third line of betting at $4.20.

The High Chaparral colt has had just two career starts, winning on debut at Cranbourne in October and running sixth in the Autumn Stakes.

But the Michael Kent-trained youngster is considered to be an Australian Derby prospect so should appreciate the rise in distance this weekend.

Next best in betting is Subiaso ($12) who faces a rise in class after winning at Sandown on February 6.

Also stepping up in class but bringing strong form into the race is David Hayes-trained gelding Sea Of Choice ($17) who is coming off a strong win at Moonee Valley and hasn’t finished outside the top three in three career starts to date.

The remaining three Autumn Classic contenders at huge odds including last-start second Bit Of Schiller ($51), Pat Carey’s colt Luck’s A Fortune ($71) and debutant Must Confess ($71).

For great odds on the Autumn Classic and all the other top Caulfield action this weekend, head to!
