2015 CF Orr Stakes Odds Update – Dissident Still Firm Favourite

Group One racing returns to Melbourne today (Saturday) with the CF Orr Stakes (1400m) running at 5:50pm (AEDT) at Caulfield Racecourse.

15 top sprint-milers are set to contest the feature race, with a mix of resuming and fit horses.

The CF Orr Stakes betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au has seen plenty of action over the past few days, with some runners seeing their price shorten following support from punters and some lengthening out wide due to lack of support.

Peter Moody’s Dissident opened as the $3.80 favourite but has since seen his price ease to $3, making him the market mover of the field.

The four-year-old horse is already a three-time Group One winner and will enjoy the return to Caulfield after failing to win the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on January 24, with 1400 metres also his preferred distance.

Dissident won the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) first-up during the spring over the same track and trip as the CF Orr Stakes.

Petrology ($5.50) and Java ($8) remain the only other single figure hopefuls, although both have seen their prices ease since opening.

The pair are both coming to the CF Orr via the Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1300m) at Sandown on January 26, which Java won one and a quarter lengths ahead of Petrology. Both horses will carry the least amount of weight (55.5kg) but will need to overcome wide draws.

Other runners that have seen their prices ease include Bagman (from $51 to $26), Star Rolling (from $34 to $21), and Spillway (from $14 to $11).

Bagman is one of two horses to be saddled by Chris Waller in the race, and will enjoy an inside jump from barrier two. The eight-year-old gelding enjoyed minor success in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) and Group 2 Hill Stakes (2000m) last spring but was a little rough when resuming in the Group 2 Expressway Stakes (1200m) on January 31. The gelding does have a solid record over 1400 metres, finishing first three seven from 10 starts.

The Peter Morgan & Craig Widdison-trained Star Rolling will jump from barrier four with Stephen Baster and won the Group 2 Lawrence Stakes over the same trip and track as the CF Orr last August.

Spillway will enjoy the inside jump from barrier one with Michael Walker as he vies for victory first-up. The David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained horse just missed out on placings in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) and Group 2 Zipping Classic (2400m) at the end of spring. The decrease in distance could prove fortuitous for him.

It’s worth noting that all three horses will enjoy starts from barriers fewer than four. Inside gates can be a distinct advantage for runners because of the short run to the first turn.

On the other end of the betting there are a few runners that have seen their price’s lengthen, including Beaten Up ($19 to $41), Sonntag ($31 to $71), and Entirely Platinum ($7.50 to $11).

Beaten Up is Waller’s second runner but will have to overcome a start from the widest gate and has never run at Caulfield or won over 1400 metres.

Sonntag won the Listed Sale Cup (1600m) back in the spring but has never been tested over the distance of the CF Orr Stakes. The Henry Dwyer-trained gelding will also have to overcome a wide start from barrier 12.

The Team Hawkes-trained Entirely Platinum opened the betting as a single figure hopeful but has since firmed to double figure odds. The gelding has won four of his five starts over 1400 metres but not since last August.

To place a bet on the 2015 CF Orr Stakes, open your Ladbrokes.com.au betting account now. Don’t worry if your 1st fixed odds win bet runs 2nd or 3rd, you’ll enjoy your stake back as a bonus bet!
