2013 Victory Stakes – Betting Update and Tips

With the 2013 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival just around the corner the action is beginning to heat up in the sunshine state and this weekend Doomben hosts the Group 2 2013 Victory Stakes (1200m).

Heading the Victory Stakes field and a short-priced favourite is Queensland’s reigning horse of the year, Buffering.

Rated a $1.80 chance the Robert Heathcote-trained gelding is running first-up and is expected to face most trouble from Peter Moody’s consistent sprinter Ready To Rip ($3.60).

Also in the small but quality field are Tony Gollan’s pair Temple Of Boom ($8), Spirit Of Boom ($9), Darley colt Albrecht ($10), local hope Startsmeup and Gollan’s third runner Listen Son ($51).
