2015 All Victorian Sprint Series Final Odds: Top 5 Hard to Split

The bookmakers are having a hard time separating the top chances in Saturday’s All Victorian Sprint Series Final 2015 at Flemington Racecourse with nearly half the field under double figures to win.

Set to run as Flemington Race 8 at 4:10pm (AEST), this year’s edition of the $150,000 Listed All Victorian Sprint Series Final (1200m) features 13 hopefuls and five of those are battling for top spot in the latest markets at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Narrow favourite at $6 is the nicely-drawn Hard Romp set to get the run of the race from barrier two with apprentice Michael Dee aboard the Ciaron Maher-trained five-year-old.

Hard Romp comes off a string of good runs including an 1100m Flemington win over Nadeem Lass from June 13 and a last start third behind Lonrockstar over the same track and distance a fortnight ago when beaten under a length.

For both those starts the Hard Spun gelding jumped from barrier 10 so even going up from 55.5kg to 57.5kg here, the better gate should help boost his chances.

Equal $7 second favourites are the two horses that beat Hard Romp home in the Takeover Target Tribute Handicap from June 27, a heat of the All Victorian Sprint Series, with Lonrockstar (1st) and Nadeem Lass (2nd) both backing up.

Craig Williams rides John Sadler’s Takeover Target Tribute winner Lonrockstar, the nicely-bred Lonhro five-year-old after his first 1200m win after a host of close calls over the distance (6-0-3-1), from a gun barrier four draw on 55kg.

Nadeem Lass is drawn wide in gate 12 but is still well fancied in the markets as Robbie Griffiths’ Nadeem mare gets in on the 54kg minimum.

For her two latest runs she has had only 52.5kg thanks to the apprentice claim of Regan Bayliss who is replaced in the saddle on Saturday by big race specialist Glen Boss.

The five-year-old has run top three in her seven most recent starts, including a third in the Group 3 Proud Miss Stakes (1200m) in Adelaide in mid-May, and comes off two seconds over 1100m at Flemington behind Hard Romp and Lonrockstar respectively giving her a record of four seconds and a third from eight runs at the track.

Also well and truly in the betting battle are the Danny O’Brien-trained Decircles ($7.50) coming off a second to Saturday’s Winter Championship Series Final top weight Amovatio in a heat for that 1600m feature, market mover Nearest To Pin ($7.50) visiting from Adelaide with a great 1200m record (20-6-4-4) and last of the single figure hopes Play Master ($8.50) for Benalla horseman Peter Smith.

The entire field is at $26 or under, the rails-drawn General Truce the longest priced of them, making this a wide open affair and a real toss of the coin when it comes from sorting the genuine contenders from the pretenders in the Finals Day feature race.
