2014 Doveton Stakes Betting Update

Nine sprinters will tackle the straight at Sandown on Saturday in the Listed Doveton Stakes (1000) otherwise known as the Emma Booth Christmas Cup.

Four of the horses are offering single figure odds in the Ladbrokes.com.au betting market, which means punters have a variety of opportunities to back a winner.

The Robbie Laing-trained Lord Of The Sky is the firm favourite at $2.30 despite carrying the top weight of 60kg. The four-year-old horse will jump from barrier five with Vlad Duric in the saddle.

Lord Of The Sky has won half of his ten career starts but hasn’t been seen since August, with four months in the spelling paddock, which means the 2014 Doveton Stakes will be his first run this campaign.

He won both the Taralye Listen Learn Speak Plate (1000m) and Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) during the autumn before finishing just outside the placings in the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) and United Refrigeration Handicap (1000m), finishing fourth in both.

While Lord Of The Sky is keen to win the Doveton Stakes on his comeback, he’ll face tough competition from the other three single figure hopefuls.

  • #4 Eight Bills ($6.50) – the Stephen Brown-trained gelding will jump from barrier two with Dean Yendall in the saddle as the nine-year-old searches for his twelfth career win. He enjoyed two consecutive wins in Darwin before travelling to Melbourne for the spring where he won the City Jeep Handicap (1000m) at Moonee Valley first up before missing out on a placing in the Listed MSS Security Sprint (1200m).
  • #3 Go The Knuckle ($8) – Robert Smerdon’s gelding hasn’t had a run since March when he finished runner-up in the Listed Bel Esprit Stakes (1200m). After eight months off the field, the six-year-old will get a good start from barrier four with Nicholas Hall to ride.
  • #2 It Is Written ($8.50) – Robbie Griffith’s six-year-old has won just eight of his 40 career starts and will have to overcome a wide draw from barrier eight in the Doveton Stakes with Matthew Allen. The gelding last won the Listed Adapt Australia Abell Stakes (1200m) in March but has failed to place in seven of his eight starts since.
