The Bletchingly Stakes is traditionally the final Group event of the racing season and generally draws a strong field of horses that are getting their 2013 Spring Racing Carnival campaigns underway early.

Pago Rock ($3.90) is the Bletchingly Stakes favourite after his strong win the Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) and will carry 58.5kg from barrier nine.

The son of Rock of Gibraltar is a proven winner who is looking for his third straight victory and his first ever success at Group level against a very similar field to that the one that he defeated in the John Monash.

Second Effort ($4.40) ran on well to finish third behind Pago Rock in the John Monash Stakes first-up and has been the best backed runner in the lead-up to the race while Elite Elle ($6.50) has also received some support.

Will the Sir John Monash Stakes form stack up in the Bletchingly Stakes? Our team of racing experts have analysed the field to come up with the best 2013 Bletchingly Stakes tips.


#3 Second Effort ($4.40)

Second Effort was clearly the run of the race in the Sir John Monash Stakes, making a great deal of ground late on the worst part of the track. The Mossman gelding is proven at weight-for-age level after his victory in the 2012 Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) and generally performs well second up. The rain that has been around Melbourne in the lead-up to the race only helps his chances as he has an amazing record of nine wins from eleven starts on a rain affected track.


#2 Launay ($7)

The Darley gelding flies first-up and is the best each-way value in this race. Launay was very consistent during his brief autumn campaign, recording a strong victory in the Listed TAB Stakes (1400m), and has previously won at this track and distance in the Arrowfield Stud Handicap (1200m) in 2010. The son of Lonhro should get an excellent run just off the pace and is a clear contender.


Zamorar ($7.50)

Zamorar clearly had problems when finishing last in the John Monash Stakes and a line should be put through that run. Before that she finished a narrow second behind Pago Rock in the All Victorian Handicap (1100m) and is generally a horse that improves the more racing he has under his belt. The son of Scandal Keeper finished second behind Ready To Rip in this race last year and is a definite chance to go one better in 2013.
