2015 HDF McNeil Stakes Betting Tips

The opening Group race on the Memsie Stakes Day card in Melbourne this weekend is the HDF McNeil Stakes 2015 for three-year-olds, betting tips and selections for which are detailed below.

Running as Caulfield Race 4 at 2:10pm (AEST) on Saturday afternoon, this year’s $150,000 Group 3 H.D.F. McNeil Stakes (1200m) sprint features 11 hopefuls.

Leading the latest HDF McNeil Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, home of the $500 spring bonus bet offer for new depositing players this season that use the code SPRINGBONUS, is the undefeated Prince Of Brooklyn ($3.20).

Mick Price’s two time winning Magnus colt hasn’t raced since early June when posting a victory over 1300m at Sandown-Hillside, but he has won two subsequent Cranbourne trials and looks fit and ready to fire first-up from barrier four with Dale Smith in the saddle.

There are four other single figure hopes in the McNeil Stakes betting markets including Price’s other runner Ready For Victory ($4.40) who heads towards the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 10, the rails-drawn Stream Ahead ($7.50) and the John O’Shea-trained Demonstrate ($7.50) in the outside alley.

So can the market mover Prince Of Brooklyn keep his undefeated record in check with a Group 3 win on Saturday or is there an upset HDF McNeil Stakes result on the cards from the likes of Peter Moody’s Group 3 Vain Stakes winner Gold Symphony ($9) or runner-up in the same lead-up race Top Me Up ($11) for Team Hawkes?


#11 Stream Ahead ($7.50)

Doug Harrison’s lightly-raced Dane Shadow filly takes on the boys here and think she’ll get the gun run from the inside alley and is more than capable of taking it out. She has had two nice runs in easier company, including a first-up second behind Petits Filous over 1000m at Moonee Valley at the start of the month. She’s up in distance and up in class, but think she’s the surprise hope in this open field.


#2 Gold Symphony ($9)

Glen Boss rides this Reward For Effort colt drawn a treat in barrier two after guiding him to victory in the Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) at the same track a fortnight ago. Two weeks between runs looks ideal, is proven in this grade, step up to distance should be a non-issue considering he won over it on debut in July, so lots to like. Also boasts the fitness advantage over a number of these so the claims are genuine to go back-to-back.


#3 Ready For Victory ($4.40)

Is a market drifter with his peak not set to be until October, but in barrier three racing fresh he should be building on his opening campaign and hard to hold off. The More Than Ready colt won over 1000m at Flemington on debut before a Golden Slipper fourth and ATC Sires’ Produced seventh, so has raced against better.
