Earlier in the week when markets for the $200,000 Group 2 Back to Caulfield P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) first opened, Wez Hunter’s veteran eight-year-old Smokin’ Joey was as short as $3.40 for the win.

A Group 1 champion coming off back-to-back victories including the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) at the Caulfield track last time out, Smokin’ Joey is now out to $3.70 to make it a hat-trick of wins from his gun barrier three of nine draw with Chris Parnham in the saddle.

Second pick at the markets paying a steady $4.40 is then the returning Gai Waterhouse-trained import Excess Knowledge jumping from barrier seven first-up with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle and confident of a good run from his mount.

The Monsun stallion won both of his starts during a short autumn campaign in Sydney back in March, including the Group 3 Doncaster Prelude (1500m) at Rosehill, with Waterhouse turning him out after that to prepare for a big spring.

He has had two trials in the lead-up to this weekend for a Randwick win in the mud on July 20 and a second behind Greatwood over 1200m at the same track 11 days later in a fine run with McEvoy aboard.

Another drifter in the markets out from $4 to $5 and now occupying the third line of PB Lawrence Stakes betting is one of two David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained hopes in the race, former Hong Kong galloper Dibayani.

Drawn in gate eight with Damian Lane riding, the Shamardal six-year-old hasn’t raced since a dead last (14th) behind Military Attack at Sha Tin in black-type company over the mile in Hong Kong last October, and despite this being his first run in Australia he is at fairly short odds for the win.

The stable’s other runner Petrology meanwhile remains at a steady $7.50 with no changes to his price to take out the weight-for-age feature second-up off a third behind Smokin’ Joey in the Bletchingly Stakes from July 25.

Also at single figures is the rails-drawn Mourinho backed in from $7 to $6.50 to win his first run this time in, the Oratorio eight-year-old having won the Group 2 Peter Young Stakes (1800m) at Caulfield in late February on the back of a third to Dissident at the track in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) during the autumn.

The big market mover though is Big Memory who has been backed in from $31 to $20, Damien Oliver riding the Tony McEvoy-trained Duke Of Marmalade gelding.

The French import hasn’t raced since April 11 during Sydney’s The Championships when he failed to see out the testing two miles of the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) finishing over 20 lengths off the winner Grand Marshall.

First-up over a distance he has twice run second at from three previous runs though, Big Memory is tipped to improve especially after a nice third in a Morphettville trial back home in Adelaide on August 7 in the mud.
