Peter Young Stakes 2015 Betting: Four Under $10

Betting markets are now out for all nine Caulfield races for Blue Diamond Stakes Day on Saturday including those for the 2015 Peter Young Stakes where returning Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist is one of four single figure hopes.

The $200,000 Group 2 Crown Golden Ale Peter Young Stakes (1800m) is a weight-for-age feature running as race six at 4:35pm (AEDT) with 13 stayers in the field this Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

Leading the line-up and the current Peter Young Stakes odds at is German import Protectionist having his first start for Broadmeadow-based trainer Kris Lees.

During the spring when still prepared by his overseas trainer Andreas Wohler the Monsun stallion ran an eye-catching fourth in the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) at Caulfield before running away for a four length romp in the Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m).

Protectionist now returns to racing in the Peter Young Stakes from a gun barrier seven draw with his Herbert Power Stakes winning jockey Craig Williams back aboard.

Lees has some queries about the 1800m for the out-and-out stayer who has had just two runs under 2000m before for a debut win in a maiden over a mile and a second over 1700m.

He does believe however that with the right kind of pace in the race Protectionist can win and salute for the punters who can get the 2015 Australian Cup hope at $3.80 to win currently.

Following Protectionist in the Peter Young Stakes betting markets are then:

  • #2 Happy Trails ($5.50) – Triple Group 1 winning seven-year-old prepared by Adelaide’s Paul Beshara this 46-start veteran is often overlooked in the odds, but not this time. His latest victory was in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on the back of a close Cox Plate sixth when under a length off the winner. He returned on February 14 in the CF Orr Stakes and ran sixth, an effort he’ll be improving on here going up in distance.
  • # 12 Spillway ($6.50) – David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained stallion hasn’t won a race since the Group 3 JRA Plate (2000m) at Randwick last April. Had mixed form during the spring but was competitive in races like the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes and Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes running fourth in both. Last seen running a first-up fifth to Dissident in the CF Orr Stakes a fortnight ago, will be improving on that with the extra metres.
  • #3 Mourinho ($7) – Peter Gelagotis trains this Oratorio seven-year-old who won last year’s Cranbourne Cup before a Mackinnon Stakes seventh. Resumed at Moonee Valley to win the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) then finished a brave third under two lengths off the winner in the CF Orr Stakes. In flying form and has won up to 2200m so is a definite chance from barrier six for jockey Vlad Duric.

Outside of those under $10 to win are then a number of other longer priced hopes with claims for an upset Peter Young Stakes result including Adam Durrant’s visiting Perth Cup winner Real Love ($11) out to improve on a CF Orr Stakes 11th, Darren Weir’s Adelaide Cup-bound eight-year-old Akzar ($12) in barrier two and the Peter Moody-trained Turnbull Stakes runner-up Lidari ($15) to get the rails run for jockey Luke Nolen.
