There are 15 three-year-old gallopers engaged for this weekend’s $175,000 Group 2 Tulloch Stakes (2000m) in Sydney, the favourite of which at Ladbrokes.com.au is Hauraki ($5).

John O’Shea’s improving Reset colt is drawn ideally in barrier four with the in-form James McDonald riding, the horse out to improve on his last start second to Chris Waller’s filly Winx in the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) at the track on March 14.

It’s a tight Tulloch Stakes betting market this year with five other single figure hopes including $5.50 second fancy Omeros on the rails in barrier one and well-supported in from an opening price of $7.50.

The other major players according to the bookies are then the Gai Waterhouse-trained Caped Crusader ($6.50) out wide in barrier 12, Peter & Paul Snowden’s Phar Lap Stakes fourth placed Diamond Valores ($7) in 14 and market mover Merion ($7.50) backed right in from $13.

With so many livewire chances in the open market below are our inside Tulloch Stakes tips for you to lock in online now at Ladbrokes.com.au – home of the $250 bonus sign-up bet offer for new depositing players.


#14 Omeros ($5.50)

One of the big movers in the market, the money is coming for John Sargent’s lightly-raced High Chaparral gelding who has had just two runs to date. Neither were in black-type company so this is a class rise but based on his Wyong win over 1600m last time out he’s likely to handle it heading into the Australian Derby over more distance during The Championships.


#3 Hauraki ($5)

Lots to like about the favourite who will get a gun run from the gate with McDonald staying on after the Phar Lap second. That was an improved effort on a CS Hayes Stakes last (12th) at Flemington when debuting in Melbourne. Sydney suits better, Rosehill holds no fears and he is on the improve coming out of a top form race.


#8 Caped Crusader ($6.50)

Barrier 12 is a definite concern but Waterhouse’s progressive O’Reilly gelding won his last start over 1800m at Randwick and deserves a shot to show he’s up to this class.
