Two Vie for Favouritism in 2014 Lee Steere Classic Betting

10 three-year-old horses are running in the Group 3 Lee Steere Classic (1400m) this Saturday, offering punters a variety of betting options and chance to back a winner.

The $150,000 Lee Steere Classic is one of six black-type races running in support of the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) at Ascot Racecourse.

Half of the field is offering single figure odds in the betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au with two contesting favouritism. Outlaw Pete is available at $3.60 while Liberty’s Gem is just behind at $3.70.

The Trevor Andrews-trained Outlaw Pete will jump from barrier two with Paul Harvey in the saddle while Simon A Miller’s Libety’s Gem will start one gate wider in three with Ben Melham to ride.

Outlaw Pete has won half of his career starts but has yet to win a black-type race. The gelding finished midfield in the Listed Fairetha Stakes (1400m) before just missing out on a placing in the Group 2 WA Guineas (1600m).

Liberty’s Gem is a lightly-run horse with just three career starts to his name, however he has won two and finished runner-up in the third so his form is good. The gelding also won the Listed Placid Ark Stakes (1200m) last time out, beating home four of his Lee Steere Classic rivals. However she has yet to run over more than 1200 so is untested at the 1400m distance.

The pair may be the race favourites but there are still three other single figure hopefuls in the betting market they will need to beat home.

  • #1 Hobart Jones ($5) – the Vernon Brockman-trained colt has only finished outside the first three once in his eight career starts, which was the Placid Ark Stakes last time out where he finished sixth. Despite this result he was a fast finisher, just two lengths off the winner. Will jump from barrier seven with Ryan Hill to ride.
  • #5 Malibu Style ($6) – runner-up to Liberty’s Gem in the Placid Ark Stakes, Neville Parnham’s colt will jump from barrier six with Steven Parnham in the saddle. Won his maiden in October and has only finished outside the first three once from five starts.
  • #2 Cuanzo ($7.50) – has won three of his seven career starts and finished third in a further three. Eric Wake’s gelding scored a minor placing in both the Listed Belgravia Stakes (1200m) and Listed Fairetha Stakes (1400m) and will jump from barrier nine with Jarrad Noske.
