Danehill Stakes 2013 Tips & Selections

While the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) is the main event at Flemington this Saturday there are plenty of other exciting races and arguably the best betting race of the day is the Group 2 Danehill Stakes(1200m).

The Danehill Stakes will be run as the fifth race of the day at 2.50pm and is set to be a form guide for both the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) and Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m), with a number of the leading contenders for both races set to take part.

The undefeated Safeguard ($5) is the current favourite with Ladbrokes.com.au, but there has also been plenty of support for classy filly Gregers ($5.50), the lightly-raced Hill Spy ($6) and impressive debutant Longma ($8).

There is expected to be a great deal of speed in the race but down the Flemington straight every horse should get their chance, although it will be interesting how these horses handle the long straight as most of the field will be making their first appearance at the famous track.


#2 Safeguard ($5.00)

The Exceed And Excel colt is still fairly immature but has a great deal of natural talent. Trainer Peter Snowden does not believe he has gotten to the bottom of the three-year-old and the form coming out of the Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) has been franked after runner-up Fast ‘N’ Rocking won the McNeil Stakes (1200m) last weekend.


#6 Hill Spy ($6)

Hill Spy was caught wide during the Vain Stakes but was still able to run home well and finish third. The O’Reilly colt has been well backed throughout the week and looks like a horse that will appreciate the clear running on offer at Flemington.


#12 Romantic Touch ($14)

Romantic Touch finished his juvenile campaign with a victory in the Group 1 J.J. Atkins (1600m) but has flown under the radar ahead of his 2013 Spring Racing Carnival campaign. The Northern Meteor gelding has a great deal of talent and at his current odds is a good each-way bet and will add value to any multiple bets.

Whether you wish to back Safeguard or any other horse in the 2013 Danehill Stakes betting market there is no better place  to bet than Ladbrokes.com.au.

The world leading bookmaker has just entered the Australian betting market and is offering a $250 bonus bet to all new customers this weekend!
