A talented field of 16 has been confirmed for Saturday’s Listed Bruce McLachlan Memorial Classic (1200m) on the Sunshine Coast; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Frequendly opened at a quote of $6 for success in 2015 Bruce McLachlan Memorial Classic betting markets but has already received huge attention from punters, who have seen the Les Ross-trained filly into current $4.40 odds with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
Frequendly more than stamped her claims as one to watch upon debuting to racing for consecutive wins in the Building Plate (900m) and Driver Recruitment Handicap (1050m) through October.
Placing third behind Pepperano in the Capture The Feeling Handicap (1100m) on November 22nd, the Sequalo filly returned to the winner’s circle in the Toowoomba Magic Millions 2.y.o Plate (1050m) on December 31st and hasn’t been seen at the races since failing to fire in the Gold Coast M.M. 2yo Guineas (1200m).
Allocated the ideal barrier 1, Frequendly undoubtedly faces a big task in first-up success this weekend but is more than worth consideration for a Bruce McLachlan Memorial Classic bet at current odds.
The Wildman is yet to receive much more than a sprinkling of bets for success in the 2015 Bruce McLachlan Memorial Classic but has maintained position as sole occupant of the second line at a quote of $5.50.
One of the most experienced runners confirmed to contest this year’s edition of the black type for two-year-olds, The Wildman has finished outside the first three only once in six career starts and have found competitive form over the distance this time.
Placing third behind subsequent Group 2 winner Blueberry Hill in a Caloundra minor over 1200m first-up on April 5th, The Wildman returned to the winner’s circle in the Butler McDermott Lawyers Handicap (1300m) only ten days later before boxing on for a credible sixth in the Group 3 Ken Russell Memorial Stakes (1200m) last time out on April 25th.
Needing a lot of luck in running from barrier 15, the Champions Gallery gelding has been confirmed to be partnered by regular hoop Tegan Harrison.
Interestingly, only two other runners in Handfast ($6) and Mr Optimistic ($7) currently rate at a quote of less-than $10 for success in 2015 Bruce McLachlan Memorial Classic betting markets.
Jam Toast ($10) has returned to racing in good form this time and is sure to receive a gem of a ride from in-form hoop Luke Tarrant, from the central barrier 8.
Yet to finish outside the first three in four competitive starts, Jam Toast jogged home to win the Anzac Day Handicap (900m) first-up on April 11th; kicking well to place third in the Listed Dalrello Stakes (1200m) a fortnight ago.
Four runners; Our Racketeer ($14), Opinionated ($31), Rani’s Dynasty ($31) and Timeless Lady ($51) will contest their racing debuts in the 2015 Bruce McLachlan Memorial Classic.
