2014 Travel Associates Classic Betting Tips

A capacity field of talented fillies and mares are set to run the Listed Travel Associates Classic (1200m) at Doomben Racecourse this Saturday. Three of the 21 runners (16 confirmed plus five emergencies) were scratched from the race on Thursday but 18 remain.

Five of those are offering single figure odds in the Travel Associates Classic betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by Brook Road at $3.

The Kris Lees-trained four-year-old mare will jump from barrier seven with Jim Byrne in the saddle.

The other single figure hopefuls include Just A Girl ($6), Breakfast In Bed ($7.50), Tukiyo and Tarloshan ($8). Tarloshan is still an emergency in the race so it’s a surprise to see her odds so low.

Will the favourites bring home the 2014 Travel Associates Classic or will one of the 13 horses with lucrative double digit odds cause an upset? Check out our betting tips for the race below.


#5 Elusive Storm ($10)

Brian Smith’s six-year-old mare will get the ideal start from barrier one carrying the minimum weight of 55.5kg. She has plenty of experience over both the track and distance of the Travel Associates Classic (6:2-2-1) and finished in the placings in her last three starts, all of which were sprint races at Doomben. Sitting just on the cusp of the single figure betting, Elusive Storm is a great bet at the moment. She’s the market mover and has already seen her price shorten from $11 so now is the time to back her.


#14 Brook Road ($3)

Kris Lees mare is the favourite to win the Travel Associates Classic and it’s not hard to see why. She has finished in the first three in seven of her eight career starts so she’s a great bet for your trifecta. This is her debut run at Doomben but Brook Road has either won or finished second in all four of her 1200m runs. The mare outclasses many of her rivals, having finished runner-up in the Group 3 Nivison (1200m) at Royal Randwick last month. Barrier seven is her widest start this campaign but is still low enough in this big-sized field to get her off to a great start.


#1 Tinto ($15)

Rex Lipp’s four-year-old mare is the most established runner on the field having win the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) and finished second in the Group 2 Gold The Roses (2000m) during the Brisbane Winter Carnival. Though she has found success over longer distance races, the mare has run her share of sprint races (four). It has been eight months though, which is the only factor working against Tinto. The Travel Associates Classic will be her first run this campaign after five months off the field. Although she carries the top weight of 59.5kg, Tinto will get a good jump from barrier three.

Brisbane received very heavy rainfall on Thursday afternoon so there may be more scratchings still to come from horses that prefer firm tracks.
