2014 Recognition Stakes Tips & Selections

13 horses are set to tackle the mile at Doomben Racecourse on Saturday in the Listed Recognition Stakes (1630m) after headliner Mouro was scratched in favour of Sydney.

The rest of the runners at least benefited from Mouro’s acceptance in the Recognition Stakes, his top weight of 61kg compressed the weight of the top Brisbane horses including Brave Ali (57kg) and Hopfgarten (56kg).

There are four runners offering single figure odds in the race, led by short favourite Rudy at $2.70. Helen Page’s four-year-old gelding will jump from barrier nine with Luke Tarrant in the saddle.

The other three runners offering single digit odds are Hopfgarten ($5), Grayson Square ($7), and Lady Echelon ($8.50).

Will Rudy justify his clear favouritism and win the 2014 Recognition Stakes or will one of the outside chances cause an upset? Check out our betting tips for the race to back the best chances at Ladbrokes.com.au.


 #6 Lady Echelon ($8.50) 

Natalie McCall’s five-year-old grey mare had a disappointing trip down to Melbourne during the spring but can atone for it at Doomben this Saturday. Her chances have been made that much better by the recent rainfall recorded in Brisbane on Thursday afternoon. Five of Lady Echelon’s wins have been in rain-affected going – she handles up to heavy and the lack of sting in the ground helps her. She also loves the mile trip at Doomben, winning twice and placing three times over the 1600m there, so her chances of success are high. This is a great value price for punters.


#3 Darci Be Good ($11)

Andrew Williamson’s gelding is sitting just outside the single figure odds, which makes him a great betting prospect for punters. The six-year-old has was his last two starts and finished third in the three before that so his form is perfect and you can expect him to finish in the first three. Not to mention four of those five starts were on the Doomben track. His last start win was over the same course and distance as the Recognition Stakes which is a huge tick in his favour. He will also get a good start from barrier three.


#11 Grayson Square ($7)

Brian Wakefield’s gelding will get the ideal start from barrier one carrying the minimum weight of 54kg so his chances for a win in the Recognition Stakes appear high. He also enjoyed three straight wins during October, two of which were at Doomben and one was over the mile distance of the Recognition. Is a good bet to round out your trifecta.
