2014 Gilgai Stakes Betting Update

A field of 11 will face off in the 2014 Gilgai Stakes at Flemington Racecourse this Saturday, offering punters a variety of betting options and the chance to back a winner.

The Group 2 Gilgai Stakes (1200m) is the major sprint race on the Turnbull Stakes Day program, for which Chautauqua is the firm favourite. Ladbrokes.com.au is offering odds of $2.80 for the gelding, ahead of just two other single figure hopefuls.

The Team Hawkes four-year-old will get the ideal rails run at Flemington after drawing barrier one with Dwayne Dunn to ride.

Chautauqua has won two of his last three out, including the Group 3 Hawk Guineas (1400m) back in May and his most recent start the Group 3 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m).

All of this makes him a market favourite for the 2014 Gilgai Stakes.

There are only two other single figure bets available, Temple Of Boom ($4.40) and Bounding ($5).

The Tony Gollan-trained Temple Of Boom will start from barrier four with Tegan Harrison to ride and enters the race with good form after finishing runner-up in all three of his last starts.

The perpetual bridesmaid lost the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) by a neck to stable mate Spirit Of Boom in May before missing out on the AAMI Stradbroke (1400m) to Gilgai rival River Lad by just a short neck in June. Temple Of Boom’s last start was a second placing to Chautauqua in the Bobbie Lewis.

Ken Kelso’s Bounding is a serious betting option considering the four-year-old mare has yet to finish worse than third in all 11 of her starts, which includes an impressive seven wins. However, the Group One winner has not been seen since April.

Bounding will also be the lightest runner on the field at 54kg and will start from the decent barrier three under Mark Du Plessis.

Of course, having just three single figure hopefuls featured on the Gilgai Stakes betting market leaves the field wide open for a runner with lucratively priced odds to steal the win.

Natalie McCall’s River Lad ($11) will start from the fifth barrier under Damien Oliver and is a solid betting prospect after winning his last two starts, which includes the Group 1 Straddie. He’s already beaten Temple Of Boom home once and could easily do it again.

Peter Moody’s Il Cavallo ($19) will have to overcome the widest barrier under jockey Luke Nolen but three wins and a second from his last four starts puts the four-year-old in perfect form ahead of the Flemington race.
