Underwood Stakes 2015 Betting & Odds: Fawkner Favourite

This Saturday’s 2015 Underwood Stakes field in Melbourne features a dozen stayers with the three current single figure hopes in the markets led by the Lloyd Williams-owner Fakwner.

An evergreen eight-year-old, the Robert Hickmott-trained son of Reset is second-up in the $400,000 Group 1 Hyland Race Colours Underwood Stakes (1800m) this weekend at Caulfield Racecourse and has an imposing record of four wins and a second from his six previous second-up runs.

The latest Underwood Stakes betting odds at Ladbrokes.com.au reflect this as Fawkner, who comes off a first-up win in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington that last produced an Underwood winner with Weekend Hussler (2008) doing the double, pays $3.40 as the favourite and market mover.

He’s drawn a treat in gate two with Damien Oliver retaining the ride on the galloper who boasts two previous Group 1 wins at the track, and Oliver shoots for his second Underwood Stakes success having saluted on Northerly back in 2001.

The two other hopes in the weight-for-age feature this year are the John O’Shea-trained Contributer ($4.50) in gate eight and the rails-drawn Tasmanian cult hero The Cleaner ($6.50).

While Fawkner ticks plenty of boxes and deserves the chance to be the first favourite to win since So You Think (2010), both Godolphin’s High Chaparral stallion Contriubter and the Mick Burles-trained Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes winner The Cleaner are livewire chances.

Winner of the Chipping Norton Stakes – Ranvet Stakes double in Sydney during the autumn, Contributer comes off a first-up fifth in the Dato’ and gets the chance to bounce back here with a quieter ride than last time out by jockey James McDonald.

The Cleaner meanwhile beat a number of these home at the Moonee Valley Group 2 and on Saturday is shooting for his first win at the roomer Caulfield track from barrier one that an Underwood Stakes winner hasn’t jumped from since Intergaze (1999).

Outside the top three in betting the next best fancied are all super close in an open market and include ATC Derby winner Mongolian Khan ($11) who’ll appreciate the extra metres two runs in here, the Chris Waller-trained Weary ($12) who hasn’t won a race since the Expressway back in January and Hong Kong expat Dibayani ($12) coming off two brave thirds including in the Dato on September 5.

Hot on their heels and all with genuine claims at an upset Underwood Stakes result this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival are then the likes of the other Kiwi raider in the field Volkstok’n’barrell ($14) who Craig Williams rides shooting for his first win in the classic, Mourinho ($17) who beat The Cleaner home two back in the Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at this track and the Darren Weir-trained import Dandino ($17).
