2014 Coolmore Stud Stakes Betting Update

The Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) is one of four Group One races running at Flemington this Saturday as part of the action-packed Victoria Derby Day.

16 of the country’s top three-year-old sprinters are set to contest the race, giving many of the runners their last chance to win a race at the highest level this spring campaign.

Five of the horses are offering single figure odds in the Coolmore Stud Stakes betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by Rich Enuff at $3.20. The Ken Keys-trained colt is clear favourite, nearly half the price of his closest betting rival.

Rich Enuff has had a fantastic 2014 spring racing campaign but a Group One win has so far eluded him. He won three of his consecutive starts including the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) but he just missed out on winning the Group 1 BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m) last time out to Shooting To Win after over-racing too early.

He has drawn well in gate 10 but the drop down to 1200m from 1600m after coming off a three-week break is not ideal. Jockey Michael Rodd believes it won’t be an issue for the colt.

“This bloke is not your normal horse,” Rodd told TVN.

“We have seen him win up the straight and the question was would he get the mile. He did get the mile, but it took a good one (Shooting To Win) to beat him off a softer run.

“He looks a million dollars.

“His condition is holding and he’s freshened up really nicely. We gave him a decent work out on Tuesday morning and he just runs times comfortably.

“There is no reason why going back to 1200 metres will be a problem.”

First he will need to beat home his 15 classy rivals however, including four offering single figure odds.

Brazen Beau and Kuro are both $6 shots to win the 2014 Coolmore Stud Stakes, despite drawing the widest starts. Unlike most tracks the 1200m at Flemington is a straight win to the post, ensuring every runner gets an even chance.

Brazen Beau is one of two runners for Chris Waller, but will get the advantage of international superstar hoop Joao Moreira in his saddle. The colt had a highly successful winter carnival that ended with a runner-up finish in the Group 1 J.J. Atkins Stakes (1600m) but like Rich Enuff is still searching for his first win at the highest level of racing.

He returned for spring with a fifth place in the Danehill Stakes before turning it around to win the Group 2 Roman Consul (1200m) on October 4, which he won with Moreira.

The Joseph Pride-trained Kuro has already proven to be a successful sprinter in Sydney but the colt will make his first trip down to Melbourne for the Coolmore Stud Stakes. He has won his last four starts including the Listed Brian Crowley Stakes (1200m).

Rubick ($6.50) is the market mover of the betting market after firming from $7 to $6.50. The Gerald Ryan-trained colt is a last start winner after taking out the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes Stakes (1000m), his sole spring start so far after being rested for eight months.

The colt has won three of his four career starts, just missing out on a placing in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) back in February.

Earthquake ($8.50) is one of just three fillies taking on the colts this Saturday, and the only one to offer single figure odds.

The Godolphin filly will get a good start from barrier two with James McDonald in the saddle and will also carry two kilograms less weight than her male counterparts. She has yet to place outside the top three in any of her eight career starts, which includes five wins, putting her in top form for the race. Earthquake is also a last start winner after claiming the Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m) on October 11.

Of course there is also a range of runners offering lucrative double figure odds who could cause an upset and win the race, including Scissor Kick ($15), Eloping ($21) and Galaxy Pegasus ($41).
