Only six horses will take to the track in Flemington Race 7 at 4:35pm (AEDT) on the weekend in the latest Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival elite level – the $500,000 Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m).

Two of those sprinters are battling for top spot in the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, the Hawkes Racing-trained Deep Field the narrow $2.30 favourite over market drifter Lankan Rupee.

Northern Meteor four-year-old Deep Field faces his first real test here having accounted for all his previous rivals when winning his opening five career starts.

The only one of those in Group company was on Derby Day on November 1 in the Group 2 TAB.com.au Stakes (1200m) where he defeated Driefontein by a length.

He is being spruiked as the next big sprinter to come out of Australia however and will now look to win the race won by our bet ever, Black Caviar.

James Winks has the all-important ride this weekend from barrier five, their biggest danger Lankan Rupee paying $2.40 (out from $2.30) and drawn in the outside gate barrier six.

Craig Newitt is back aboard Mick Price’s outstanding Redoute’s Choice gelding who is currently the world’s equal highest-rated sprinter.

A four-time Group 1 winner the five-year-old won three of those last autumn before his fourth in the spring’s Manikato Stakes and runs for the first time since a third to Terravista in the Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) on November 8.

The only other runner under double figures in the latest Black Caviar Lightning Stakes betting markets is then market mover Brazen Beau in from $5.50 to $5 for an upset.

Craig Williams rides Chris Waller’s three-year-old from a gun barrier two draw, the I Am Invincible colt getting the three kilo weight advantage over his rivals under the weight-for-age conditions of the race.

Brazen Beau runs for the first time since his Derby Day win over stablemate Delectation in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) and shoots for another Group 1 Flemington win here.

He is two from three first-up so runs well fresh and can improve on his seventh in a Warwick Farm trial from last month run in the mud in Sydney.

Robbie Griffiths’ rails-drawn stakes winner The Quarterback ($26) and Group 1 placed Perth import Watermans Bay ($34) in his interstate debut are the next best in betting before pacesetter Fab Fevola comes in at $101.

Ladbrokes are also running their exclusive Best Tote or SP + 20% markets on the Lightning Stakes this weekend so you won’t find a better bookie to clean up at!
