2013 Coolmore Stud Stakes Betting Update – Zoustar Out to $2

Former odds-on favourite, and still the one to beat, the Chris Waller-trained Zoustar is easing in their price to make their Melbourne debut a winning one in the Coolmore Stud Stakes 2013 at Flemington this afternoon.

The in-form son of the ill-fated Northern Meteor is one of 11 three-year-old sprinters set to square off in the opening Group 1 race on Victoria Derby Day today – the $500,000 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m).

Having opened at $1.90 in the Coolmore Stud Stakes odds the talented up-and-comer is now out to $2 with punters a little wary of their wide barrier 10 draw.

Zoustar sees the famous Flemington straight for the first time today as they break their Melbourne maiden.

They are the rank horse in the field however having won the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) back in September when overcoming gate 16 of 16 to hit the headlines in Sydney.

Waller kept them home bypassing the Caulfield Guineas last month too and instead gave Zoustar a run in the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on October 5.

It turned out to be an easy kill for the horse and their Hall of Fame hoop Jim Cassidy, the duo beating home their rivals by a minimum four and a half lengths.

While they have lost a little bit of the punters’ love, Zoustar is still the genuine shortie in the markets and are the Races.com.au Coolmore Stud Stakes tip to win.

Coolmore Stud Stakes second elect Missy Longstocking meanwhile has been heavily backed.

After originally opening at $11 she was backed right into $8.50 very quickly after punters started to study the Coolmore form.

Now the daughter of Sequalo is at $8 to go back-to-back for the fillies following the success of the John Thompson-trained Nechita 12 months ago.

She goes up against the boys here after an easy Group 3 win against her own kind last time out, Liam Birchely’s Brisbane-based raider jumping from gate six with her Queensland jockey Damien Browne aboard again.

Other Coolmore Stud Stakes betting market moves include:

  • #4 Divine Calling ($11 out to $12) – Lovely grey who was runner-up in the Caulfield Guineas last time out, dual winner before that at the Valley including the Group 2 Stutt Stakes over Shamus Award who went on to win the Cox Plate, should Gai Waterhouse have stepped them up in distance too instead of dropping them back here?
  • #2 Sidestep ($12 out to $14) – Peter Snowden-trained colt was fourth to Zoustar in the Golden Rose, has also had the three break between runs, and is no stranger to Group 1 racing having also finished second in the Slipper as a two-year-old
  • #5 Lion Of Belfort ($13 out to $15) – Mick Price’s colt is up in class for this after winning their past three on the trot, most recently in the Blue Sapphire on Caulfield Cup Day, if they handle these better rivals are a star in the making
  • #8 Not Listenin’tome ($13 out to $14) – Only seven days between runs for this lightly-raced galloper who has won two from three, ran on Cox Plate Day last weekend and was runner-up to Thermal Current in the Red Anchor Stakes

Think Zoustar can get the job done in Melbourne?

Or are you following the Coolmore Stud Stakes money trail and locking in the filly Missy Longstocking for an upset?
