WJ Healy Stakes Odds and Betting Update

15 sprinters will contest Saturday’s Group 3 WJ Healy Stakes (1200m) on the Gold Coast; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Kaepernick opened at a quote of $4.80 for success in 2015 WJ Healy betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au, but has continued to experience huge interest from punters who have seen the three-year-old in to current odds of $3.70.

Finishing outside the first three only twice in eight career starts, the son of Fastnet Rock won the Rexel BM78 (1200m) first-up on May 9th; progressing to second in the TAB.com.au BM79 (1200m) before again finishing just off the pace when second in the Listed Hinkler Handicap (1200m) on June 6th.

Needing some luck in running from barrier 9, the talented Team Hawkes runner will carry just 54kgs and has been confirmed to be partnered by Tommy Berry.

Dothraki was unable to make a competitive impact in his racing return but is a proven performer on the Gold Coast track and currently figures on the second line of WJ Healy Stakes betting at $5.50 odds.

Taking out the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) most notably during a strong 2014 winter campaign, Dothraki failed to finish outside the first three through five summer starts and placed second behind Our Boy Malachi in both the Listed Starlight Stakes (1100m) and Listed Razor Sharp Handicap (1200m) most notably.

Veteran local Damian Browne has been confirmed to take the ride on the Peter and Paul Snowden-trained gelding in the WJ Healy Stakes and will need to work magic if his mount is to figure from barrier 11.

Target In Sight continues to drift in 2015 WJ Healy Stakes betting markets but remains outright third favourite for success at a particularly generous quote of $6.50.

One of several talented sprinters currently under the care of Joe Pride, Target In Sight charged home to win the Group 3 Maurice McCarten Stakes (1100m) first-up before placing a close second to Generalife in the Group 3 Star Kingdom Stakes (1200m) on March 28th.

While luckless when blocked for a run late and sixth in the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes (1200m) on April 18th, the Nadeem gelding has since finished second in the Listed Ortensia Stakes (1100m) and fourth in the Listed June Stakes (1100m), and looks likely to relish a return to 1200m and the Gold Coast conditions, particularly from barrier 3 and with Zac Purton aboard.
