2014 George Moore Stakes Betting Update

12 sprinters are set to contest the Group 3 George Moore Stakes (1200m) on Saturday, offering punters a variety of betting options and chance to back a winner.

The $200,000 George Moore Stakes is the feature race running at Doomben Racecourse, set to jump at 5:42pm (AEDT).

Four of the 12 runners are offering single figure odds in the betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by Cape Kidnappers at $4.20.

The Kelly Schweida-trained gelding will jump from barrier 10 with Damian Browne in the saddle but his form is on-point. The seven-year-old has won nine of his 14 career starts and placed in a further four, which means he has only finished outside the first three once, in the Listed Bribie Handicap (1110m) back in May. He then went on to win both the Listed Chief De Beers (1110m) and Listed Lightning Handicap (1000m) before finishing runner-up in the Group 3 WJ Healy Stakes (1200m) last time out.

Cape Kidnappers started the WJ Healy Stakes about midfield but many lengths off the leader in a very fast run race. He hunted along to maintain some contact before easing to the outside to make his run. He tried hard and just couldn’t go with the winner Big Money, finishing a neck behind in second place. This was back in June and the gelding hasn’t had a start since then.

He faces some tough competition if he wants to win his first-up race, including three other single figure hopefuls.

  • #5 Big Money ($4.40) – Cape Kidnappers will get his chance to atone for the WJ Healy Stakes seeing as the winner will run the 2014 George Moore Stakes. Rodney Northam’s gelding is just off favouritism in the betting market as he is set to jump from barrier four with Robert Thompson. Before the spring, Big Money was in perfect form. He’d either won or placed second in all 11 of his career start. However Scone-based horse travelled to Melbourne during the spring where he just missed out on a placing in the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m) before finishing second last in the Group 2 Tab.com.au Stakes (1200m).
  • #8 Someday ($6.50) – is one of two horses representing trainer Tony Gollan in the George Moore Stakes. Will get a good start from barrier three with Timothy Bell in the saddle. Has had a lightly run year after winning the Listed Brisbane Handicap (1600m) last December with just two starts, in which he ran fourth in both.
  • #9 Time To Plunder ($8.50) – the Liam Birchley-trained gelding is the current market mover, seeing his price shorten from double digits. He is in-form after winning the Listed Keith Noud Quality (1200m) last time out and will get a good start from barrier two with Larry Cassidy.

Of course there are also some highly lucrative runners offering double figure odds who could easily win the 2014 George Moore Stakes including XXXX Open (1000m) winner Rocky King ($10) and runner-up Adebisi ($16).

Open your online betting accounts at Ladbrokes.com.au to place your bets and you’ll receive up to $100 in a bonus match on your first bet.
