2013 Carbine Club Stakes Field & Betting

This Saturday, November 2, Flemington Racecourse will host a bumper all-Group race program for Victoria Derby Day with the opening race on the card being the Carbine Club Stakes 2013.

Due to kick off the opening day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival at 11:20am (AEST), this year’s $200,000 Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) originally drew a final field of nine three-year-olds.

Attracting a lower grade field of youngsters than are contesting the day’s feature, the $1.5 million Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) scheduled as Flemington Race 6, the Carbine Club Stakes field is down to eight starters following the early scratching of #7 Sir Andrew.

Topping the odds for the first on Derby Day at a short $2.50 is Hucklebuck, the lightly raced galloper after their fourth win from just five career starts.

Drawn in gate six the Phillip Stokes-trained Morphettville raider has raced in Melbourne for their two latest starts, most recently winning the Listed Gothic Stakes (1400m) on Caulfield Cup Day and look the one to beat again on the weekend.

“He’s going super, he’s held his condition well,” Stokes told The Advertiser this week speaking of his young star Hucklebuck.

“The mile shouldn’t be a worry, he can relax and he can race on the speed – he’s very adaptable.”

In a relatively open Carbine Club Stakes market however there are three other single-figure chances with:

  • #4 Equator ($4) – Gai Waterhouse-trained Northern Meteor colt, third to Guelph in the Champagne Stakes at Group 1 level during the autumn, only form is in Sydney so far, last start sixth to Saturday’s Victoria Derby favourite Complacent in the Spring Champion Stakes over 2000m, should be better going back down to the mile as long as they’re not too sharp for them
  • #9 Saintly Lad ($7) – Good gate three draw for Bart Cummings’ Shamardal gelding as they have just their fourth start, most recent effort was a credible fourth to Rock Hero in the Dulcify Quality Handicap on October 5, Melbourne debut looking to break their maiden status
  • #1 Paximadia ($8) – Drawn on the rails Peter Snowden’s Commands colt was third in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) at Eagle Farm last season, this time in they kicked things off with a win over 1400m in a Flemington black type but things went amiss when eighth in the Gothic Stakes which they are out to improve on
