2015 PB Lawrence Stakes Betting Odds

Betting markets on Saturday’s PB Lawrence Stakes 2015 in Melbourne are now out with Group 1 winner Smokin’ Joey the firm favourite and early mover to take out the Caulfield classic.

An eight-year-old son of Encosta De Lago best known for his win in the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) last year, Smokin’ Joey comes into the $200,000 Group 2 Back to Caulfield P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) having won his two most recent runs.

The first was in Queensland’s Listed Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) at Ipswich in mid-June before he raced at Caulfield for the first time since his second behind Suavito in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) in late February to win the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) by two lengths over Platinum Rocker.

Now he shoots for back-to-back wins at the track with his Bletchingly Stakes winning hoop Chris Parnham retaining the ride from a gun barrier three draw in the nine-horse field, and pays $3.40 (in from $3.60) as the top fancy in the latest PB Lawrence Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Four other gallopers in the line-up are also under double figures in PB Lawrence Stakes betting this spring including the $4.20 second pick Dibayani from the Lindsay Park stables of David Hayes & Tom Dabernig.

The former Hong Kong-trained son of Shamardal has his maiden run down under this weekend in the PB Lawrence, Dibayani’s last start being a dead last (14th) behind Military Attack at Sha Tin in late October last year.

The bookies are taking no chances with the Group 1 performed stayer however despite the fact he’s not raced in Australia and has run top three just once from four previous first-up assignments over his 13 start career.

The next best in betting is then another marker firmer, the rails-drawn Mourinho backed in from $7 to $6.50 to win his maiden spring assignment this time in.

The veteran Oratorio eight-year-old won the Group 2 Peter Young Stakes (1800m) in late February at his most recent start at Caulfield before a failed 13th last time out behind Spillway in the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington in mid-March.

He has winning form over 1200m in the Group 2 Australia Stakes from January too so the 1400m on Saturday doesn’t look too short first-up from the inside barrier with Vlad Duric booked for the ride.

The last hope under $10 is then Petrology ($7.50) who also represents Hayes & Dabernig in the PB Lawrence Stakes field.

Dwayne Dunn rides the Fastent Rock four-year-old from the outside barrier (nine) this weekend, Petrology coming off a nice first-up third behind Saturday’s favourite Smokin’ Joey in the Bletchingly Stakes.

Also in the mix at more generous odds is then The Cleaner ($12), the Mick Burles-trained Tasmanian visitor shooting for his first win since he made it a hat-trick of Melbourne wins at Moonee Valley in the Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m) last September before a Cox Plate ninth.

His main aim again this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival is the $3 million Group 1 WS Cox Plate (2040m) on October 24, his campaign kicking off this weekend.
