There are nine in the mix for this year’s $200,000 Group 2 Jeep Stutt Stakes (1600m) which runs as Moonee Valley Race 7 at 9:45pm.

Of those the punters’ pick in the latest Stutt Stakes odds through Ladbrokes.com.au is Gai Waterhouse’s Group 1 winner Almalad ($3.10), who now shares top spot with Chivalry.

The rails-drawn mover Chivalry was backed in from $3.50 to $3.20 but this morning firmed further into equal favouritism.

Almalad is easing in the markets out from $2.80, Tommy Berry to ride the JJ Atkins winner who is after his first win since the Group 1 as a juvenile in Brisbane back in June.

Last time out the Al Maher gelding, with Berry aboard, ran fourth to Hallowed Crown in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill.

Tonight then Almalad makes his Melbourne debut and also steps up to the mile for the first time since the JJ Atkins, the metres to suit.

Chivalry meanwhile is a Glen Boss mount for Mark Kavanagh, also a former Melbourne Cup winning trainer like rival Waterhouse, who gets the inside running from gate one.

The Street Cry colt has had two runs this season including a win at Caulfield two back over Nordic Empire in the Group 3 McNeil Stakes (1200m).

Last time out he ran at Flemington a fortnight ago and was a close second when just nosed out of a black type win over 1400m by Merion.

Also at single figures is then Zebulon ($4.80) drawn one wider in barrier two and coming off a resuming third in the same Listed Flemington race that produces Chivalry.

So will the Stutt Stakes winner come from one of the top three in betting at Ladbrokes.com.au?

Or is there an upset Stutt Stakes result on the cards from a better priced hope such as Peter Moody’s last start winner over 1500m at the track Caveka ($11) or Group 1 placegetter Kumaon ($11) for John O’Shea?


#3 Chivarly ($3.10)

Rails draw for Kavanagh’s colt who is in top form this time in. From six starts has finished out of the money just once which was in Group 1 company (Blue Diamond eighth) and still only beaten four lengths. Won a Group 3 at Caulfield two back and was second over 1400m at Flemington last time out in a race the bookies are rating the form of. Undefeated at Moonee Valley with a 1000m win here in December but hasn’t seen a mile yet. Indications last start, when beaten a nose, are the extra metres will suit and Glen Boss stays on.


#1 Almalad ($3.10)

Drifting favourite has class with a Group 1 win as a two-year-old during the winter. First-up ran ninth beating just one runner home in the mud at Rosehill but appreciated a firmer track and the 1400m when fourth in the Golden Rose. 1.6 lengths off the undefeated winner that day and should have improved off that. Won at top level over the mile so distance here should work in his favour. Tommy Berry has the mount again with the pair in barrier six. Should be close over this distance.


#5 Moonovermanhattan ($18)

Adds value to the trifecta, this Mick Price-trained up-and-comer has just his fourth start. Won on debut in Adelaide but was a disappointing 11th first-up in the McNeil behind Chivalry. Improved on that in the Drummond Stakes when fourth to Merion, where Chivalry ran second and if they improve again this Manhattan Rain colt can finish in the money.
