Polanski Resounding Favourite for 2014 Autumn Stakes

2013 Victoria Derby Champion Polanski is the undisputed favourite for the 2014 Hyland Race Colours Autumn Stakes after being well backed to get his 2014 campaign off to a winning start.

Opening with the favourite’s tag, the three-year-old Rakti Colt initially offered odds of $3.50, however has been drastically dropped to $3.10 and is without doubt the field’s market mover.

Polanski will be aiming for his fourth-straight win after three consecutive victories rounded out his 2013 Spring Carnival, including a memorable run in the Group 1 Victoria Derby.

Three-year-old colt Late Charge ($6) began his racing career with a bang in 2013, claiming two wins from five starts and closing his first campaign with a run in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas on October 12th.

Trainer Wendy Kelly was impressed with the form of the son of Hard Spun at a recent Cranbourne barrier trial, who is also the punter’s second pick for the 2014 Autumn Stakes crown.

Rock Hero managed a reasonably successful maiden year of racing in 2013 that saw two wins from six starts and a season-closing run in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes; placing eighth behind classy colt Complacent.

Despite a short career so far, the son of Fastnet Rock has slowly firmed into a $6.50 chance at Ladbrokes.com.au after trialling well at Rosehill twice in January.

Opening at $9 for success in the 2014 Autumn Stakes, Thunder Fantasy has been the galloper of choice for many punters already, seeing the Lucky Owners colt cut to $7.

After claiming victory in the New South Wales Colour TV Company Handicap in September, the Anthony Cummings-trained three-year-old ran well late to claim third behind Polanski in the 2013 Victoria Derby and close the curtains on a decent Spring campaign.

Peter Snowden-trained gelding Carillo ($15) has also received some attention from punters, while Countersnip ($18), Bring Me Something ($16), Accord ($10), Pyrrolic ($8.50) and Bardem ($26) are yet to receive much more than a sprinkle.

The 2014 Autumn Stakes is one of eight notable races to run at Caulfield on Saturday, and the best odds for each can be found at Ladbrokes.com.au.
