2014 Autumn Classic Tips and Betting Preview

The 2014 Group 2 Autumn Classic (1800m) will feature just 12 runners at Caulfield on Saturday after trainer Robert Smerdon elected to remove accepter Jade’s Boy from the final field.

Having contested just two races to date, Peter Snowden-trained Deliberate is the shock $3.40 favourite, ahead of Bring Something ($4.80), Countersnip ($6.50) and Alpha Beat ($8).

Can Deliberate prove punters everywhere right, or will one of his more experienced rivals claim the 2014 Autumn Classic?


Countersnip ($6.50)

Mick Price-trained Countersnip offers punters great value at a quote of $6.50 for a number of reasons. Having secured two wins from seven starts since debuting on track in June 2013, the Stratum gelding ran a close third in the Listed Tasmanian Guineas (1600m) on December 31st before opening his 2014 account fifth behind Thunder Fantasy in the Group 2 Autumn Stakes (1400m); his first tilt at a Group level event. Having drawn the ideal barrier 3, Countersnip is in prime position for maiden success at Group level in the 2014 Autumn Classic.


Saguaro ($11)

Having only contested three races to date, Peter Moody-trained Saguaro carries winning form into the 2014 Autumn Classic. Previously partnered by leading jockeys Daniel Stackhouse and Dom Tourneur, the in-form Luke Nolen has been confirmed to take the ride on Saguaro on Saturday and will be particularly tough to beat when jumping from barrier 6.


Deliberate ($3.40)

Having received huge support from punters since markets for the 2014 Autumn Classic first opened on Wednesday, Deliberate has firmed in as favourite and undoubtable market mover. Strolling to victory in the Elephant & Castle Hotel Maiden (1715m) at Geelong last time out, all signs currently point towards a challenging run from Deliberate, who will again be partnered by Vlad Duric.
