2015 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes Betting Update

Underwood Stakes Day in Melbourne today features a double shot of Group 1 racing action including the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes 2015 where the race favourite Disposition has tightened in the markets.

Running as the eighth race on a bumper nine-race line-up at Caulfield Racecourse this afternoon, the $400,000 Group 1 Anthea Crawford Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) runs at capacity with 18 starters.

Ninth Legion is the most notable scratching from the original acceptors with a Sydney assignment today instead, paving the way for the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained first emergency Petrology to gain a run as a $34 roughie.

The latest Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, who are offering Double The Odds if you deposit via ‘Cash In’ on the Sir Rupert, are led by the now Lee & Anthony Freedman-trained Disposition who has firmed in from $4 to $3.80 thanks to a gun barrier three draw.

Six time Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes winning jockey Damien Oliver has the ride on the favourite this year having taken out the classic previously aboard: Submariner (1990), Mannerism (1992), Poetic King (1994), Testa Rossa (1999) , Mr. Murphy (2001) and most recently Orange County (2008).

Also boding well for the former WA-raced favourite Disposition, who was impressive first-up at Flemington beating home Akavoroun in the Listed The Sofitel (1400m) a fortnight ago, is the top record of favourites in the Sir Rupert.

The past three punters’ picks have all taken it out with: Moment Of Change (2012), Rebel Dane (2013) and Trust In A Gust (2014).

The genuine Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes market mover though is Under The Louvre ($8 into $5) who jumps from gate five today, which last produced a winner in the feature with Response (2010).

Trainer Robert Smerdon is thrilled with the barrier for his Excellent Art stallion who is a known backmarker who needs the good gate to be competitive in a race that is sure to be run at high speed this afternoon.

Third in the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) in Adelaide back in mid-May, Under The Louvre shoots for his first win since late March and was last seen running a close second to Churchill Dancer in the Group 2 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m) from September 12 that has produced four Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes winners in the past decade.

The other single figure hope is then Stratum Star who, drawn in a nasty barrier (18 into 15), has eased out from $7 to $7.50.

Jockey Craig Williams chases his fifth win in the race aboard the Darren Weir-trained Stratum stallion whose lead-up run was a third in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) behind Boban from August 29.

While it has been four weeks for the Australian Guineas third placegetter, Startum Star is still fit and ready to fire over a distance he loves (6-2-1-2) as Weir looks to go back-to-back after his success with Trust In A Gust 12 months ago.

Other hopefuls who are firming in their price for an upset include the flying Chris Waller-trained mare Amicus ($16 into $14) coming off back-to-back Group 2ins including the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) against her own kind at this distance at Flemington, five-year-old Fast ‘N’ Rocking ($26 into $21) and Robert Heathcote’s returning Brisbane raider Hopfgarten ($41 into $34).

On the drift meanwhile are the likes of Weir’s other hopeful Lucky Hussler ($11 out to $14) drawn well in barrier two, the in-form Charmed Harmony ($11 out to $17) coming off four straight wins and the rails-drawn Amorino ($21 out to $26).
