Eleven runners have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s Listed Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) at Ipswich Turf Club; offering punters great value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Smokin’ Joey was unlucky not to return to Group 1 winning form over the 2015 Autumn Carnival but has opened as and maintained status as outright $4.20 favourite in 2015 Eye Liner Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
Posting a maiden Group 1 title in last year’s edition of The Goodwood (1200m), Smokin’ Joey ran fourth in each of the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) and Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) through a brief Perth summer campaign.
Placing fourth in the talent-rich Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) on January 24th, the Encosta De Lago gelding returned to the winner’s circle in the Group 3 Carlyon Cup (1600m) before boxing on for a close second behind Suavito in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m).
Having finished a credible eighth in the major Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) last weekend, Smokin’ Joey is sure to relish a step-back in class for the 2015 Eye Liner Stakes and is offered a great chance of finding good early running room from barrier 7.
Nite Rocker is yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of wagers for success in 2015 Eye Liner Stakes betting markets but has maintained status as sole occupant of the second line at a quote of $4.60.
Posting four wins and as many minors through fourteen career starts, Nite Rocker returned for a credible fifth in the Listed Manihi Classic (1100m) on March 28th; recovering from a poor start to again finish fifth in the Listed City Of Adelaide Stakes (1400m) on April 25th.
Debuting in Brisbane for third behind Charlie Boy and Rock Sturdy in the Group 3 BRC Sprint (1350m) on May 9th, the More Than Ready gelding failed to handle the late going in his most recent start but is positioned well in barrier 4 for a successful performance in the Eye Liner Stakes.
Three-year-old Ulmann has been charged with carrying a race-low 54kgs, will leave from the ideal barrier 6 and arguably offers punters the best value for money in 2015 Eye Liner Stakes betting markets at current $6 odds for success.
Arriving in Brisbane for fourth in the Group 3 Gunsynd Classic (1800m) on April 25th, the son of Sebring stamped his claims as a serious racehorse when finishing second to subsequent Group 1 champion Winx in the Group 3 Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m) on May 16th.
Unlucky to miss the final field for last weekend’s Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1600m), Ulmann is primed for success and more than worth consideration for an Eye Liner Stakes bet.
