Winter Stakes 2015 Betting Tips

Sydney hosts this weekend’s feature race at Rosehill Gardens with a quality line-up of off-season sprinters facing off in the 2015 Winter Stakes, betting tips for the handicap clash detailed below.

Running as Race 7 at 3:550m (AEST) on Saturday afternoon, this year’s $100,000 Listed Sydney Markets Limited Winter Stakes (1400m) originally drew a final field of 13.

Two early scratchings leave 11 in the mix however with the latest withdrawal being the Chris Waller-trained Instrumentalist who runs at Flemington instead.

Of those left in the mix the Winter Stakes betting markets are led by the Kristen Buchanan-trained mare Two Blue ($4.20) who boasts two seconds from four previous runs over the track and distance.

Drawn in barrier seven with Paul King aboard on 55kg, the six-year-old comes off a second in the Listed Civic Stakes (1350m) from a fortnight ago behind fellow Winter Stakes hope Haussmann when beaten only a neck.

The other best fancied in the Winter Stakes odds at are Waller’s in-form market mover You’ll Never ($5) in barrier two and the John O’Shea-trained Civic Stakes winner Haussmann ($6).

So will the first three in betting be first three over the line on Saturday or is there an upset Winter Stakes result on the cards from a longer priced hope such as Peter Moody’s last start winning mare Noela’s Choice ($7.50) in the outside alley or the Joe Pride-trained Civic Stakes third placed See The World ($9)?


#7 Rugged Cross ($12)

Going for an upset with an honest import from Sydney’s best stable and rate Waller’s Cape Cross six-year-old who has been racing consistently without getting the bikkies. Third in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup three back, his latest run was a fourth in the Civic Stakes on a Heavy track, which he handles well (5-2-1-0). Has a good record over this distance (8-3-1-1) and did a good job last time from barrier 12 (of 12) with 55kg, making the inside alley with only a kilo more on Saturday big ticks.


#3 You’ll Never ($5)

Lock in an all-Waller quinella with the better fancied of the stablemates a big danger. Drawn just one wider in gate two, Blake Shinn fresh off a winning Singapore double is back aboard this five-year-old son of Commands who has a great Rosehill record (16-4-2-3), nice form over 1400m (16-4-3-4) and good experience over the Track & Distance (8-2-1-2). Last four runs this time in have all been at Rosehill for two wins over 1350m and 1400m and then two thirds, the latest on a Heavy (8) over 1500m with Shinn aboard from gate one on 59kg. Little bit of weight relief and is right in the mix.


#8 Two Blue ($4.20)

Deserving favourite based on her nice lead-up and don’t think she’ll be finishing far away again here. Good mid-field draw, 55kg is a nice weight and only a neck in the Civic Stakes finish last time out. If she improves she can win, just depends how that form stacks up and how muddy this track gets.

Head over to now to place your Winter Stakes bets at the bookie offering a Bonus Bet if your first Fixed Win punt runs 2nd or 3rd in Rosehill Race 7 on Saturday!
