2015 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes Late Mail

Won by classy mare Snitzerland in 2014, the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m), this afternoon’s feature race at Flemington, has attracted a field of just six runners.

Having remained neck and neck in betting markets all week, a noticeable gap has been opened between four-time Group 1 champion Lankan Rupee and the undefeated Deep Field over the last 12 hours, as punters have rallied around the talented Team Hawkes runner who now figures as clear $2.15 favourite and market mover at Ladbrokes.com.au.

While yet to be trialled at the highest level, Deep Field has more than stamped his claims as a serious racehorse over his short five race career so far.

Taking out a pair of minor sprints over 1100m in winter, the Northern Meteor entire returned to racing in spring for a near six-length victory in the Hyland Race Colours Plate (1100m) before making a successful transition to black type racing in taking out both the Listed Lightning (1100m) and Group 2 Salinger Stakes (1200m) most recently.

Jockey James Winks has picked up the ride on Deep Field after regular jockey Dwayne Dunn was ruled out through suspension.

Posting a commendable race record of ten wins and a further six minor places over his 20 start career so far, Lankan Rupee has surprisingly drifted from opening odds of $2.35 for success to now register at particularly generous quote of $2.50.

Unable to secure much of a consistent run of form until his gelding at the conclusion of the 2013 autumn, Lankan Rupee was undoubtedly the standout performer of the 2014 Autumn Carnival; winning the Group 2 Rubiton Stakes (1100m) at a jog first-up before taking out each of the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m), Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) and Group 1 T.J. Smith Stakes (1200m) in succession.

While unable to reach the same racing highs over spring despite adding the Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) title to his record, the son of Redoute’s Choice looked in superb condition when galloping between races at Caulfield last weekend and arguably offers punters the best value for money at current odds to win this afternoon.

Brazen Beau experienced the biggest market share of wagers for success over the first few days of 2015 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes betting, but has cooled over the last 24 hours and now registers as third favourite at $5.50 odds.

Brazen Beau was a standout for trainer Chris Waller over the Brisbane Winter Carnival in 2014; taking out the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) before finishing second in each of the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) and Group 1 J.J. Atkins (1600m).

Finishing a credible fifth amongst classy company in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) upon resuming in spring, the I Am Invincible colt returned to the winner’s circle in the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) before charging home to win the featured Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) most recently on November 1st.

The only three-year-old confirmed in the field of six, Brazen Beau is offered a notable advantage in being charged with carrying just 55.5kgs in the 2015 Lightning Stakes.
