A final field of 13 gallopers makes up the line-up for the $150,000 Group 3 Ticketek Hall Mark Stakes (1200m), the sprint clash running as Race 7 at 4:25pm (AEST) on All Aged Stakes Day.

The favourite of those in the Hall Mark Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au is Top Echelon six-year-old Our Boy Malachi at a quote of $2.60 despite the wide barrier 11 draw for him and jockey Tommy Berry to overcome.

His connections are eyeing a run in Brisbane’s $2 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) at Doomben Racecourse on June 6 for the 16-time winner who has finished out of the top three just once in his 18 career starts to date.

During the spring – summer season Our Boy Malachi put together a tidy string of victories including over this track and distance last time out when an easy two and a half length winner of the Listed Razor Sharp Handicap (1200m) on December 13.

He’s enjoyed a nice break since then and comes off a winning Rosehill barrier trial from March 30 in the lead-up to his attempt at a sixth first-up win from seven resuming runs.

His short price in the markets then is deserving and he’ll be hard to hold off fresh again on the weekend.

There are three other single figure hopes in Hall Mark Stakes betting this autumn including the in-form $5.50 second elect Craftiness drawn a treat in barrier three for jockey Blake Shinn.

Joe Pride’s flying Starcraft four-year-old won three straight in Sydney during the summer before returning on March 28 at Doomben to win again over 1050m and kick off another stellar campaign.

The gelding then boasts six wins and a second from his seven career starts, Saturday a notable rise in class he’ll have to live up to if he is to target tougher races over the coming months.

The next best in betting are then another of Pride’s runners Target In Sight ($6.50) out wide in gate 12 and coming off a second in the Group 3 Star Kingdom Stakes (1200m) from the end of last month, and John O’Shea’s Exceed And Excel four-year-old Vashka ($9) in barrier two for a returning run with James McDonald in the saddle.

Last time in Vashka won five on the trot in non-black type company so has the ability to win in his stakes test on Saturday.

At longer odds but not complete roughie shots are then the likes of returning George Moore Stakes winner Big Money ($13) who has a nice first-up record (4-2-1-0) and Lindsay Park hopeful Fast ‘N’ Rocking ($14) coming off a Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes sixth before markets open up.
