Vain Stakes Odds Update and Tips

Only ten runners remain in contention for Saturday’s Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield following the scratching of Tuscany Hero overnight; offering punters great value for money from a betting perspective and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

The Danny O’Brien-trained Ragazzo Del Corsa is yet to appear on course competitively this time but remains outright $3.40 favourite in 2015 Vain Stakes betting markets at ahead of Gold Symphony ($4.50) and clear market mover Demonstrate ($5.50, in from $6.50).

Will Ragazzo Del Corsa justify favouritism and win the 2015 Vain Stakes or will one of his talented rivals find the line in the clear?


Stoker ($8.50)

A strong and consistent performer for Tony McEvoy through his short racing career so far, Stoker will have taken huge benefit from a credible first-up performance for sixth in the Listed Lightning Stakes (1050m) on July 25th and will relish a step back to three-year-old company in the Vain Stakes. Finishing in the first three in his two debut starts before taking out the talent-rich Inglis Premier (1000m) on February 7th, the Written Tycoon gelding was unlucky to be blocked for a run in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) on February 28th but boxed on for a credible seventh. Champion jockey Damien Oliver has been confirmed to take the ride on Stoker this weekend.


Ragazzo Del Corsa ($3.40)

Ragazzo Del Corsa has not been seen at the races since finishing a disappointing seventh in the Listed Talindert Stakes (1200m) on February 21st but has reportedly taken great benefit from his time in the paddock and will leave from the ideal barrier 6 in the 2015 Vain Stakes. Placing third in the Whites Wires Plate (1000m) on debut in December, the Stratum colt stamped his claims as one to watch when taking out the Better Beyond Plate (1000m) in his only other start prior to the Talindert Stakes.


Demonstrate ($5.50)

One of several good chances of success for Godolphin Australia this weekend, Demonstrate carries winning form into the 2015 Vain Stakes and will be tough to beat with Patrick Moloney aboard. Posting two wins and as many minors through seven career starts, the New Approach gelding charged home to win a Mornington sprint over 1200m by close to two lengths on July 2nd; progressing to a luckless run for fifth in the Flemington Family Handicap (1200m) before taking out the 1Print BM78 (1000m) last time out on August 1st.
