Underwood Stakes 2015 Odds Update: Fawkner Firms

Money continues to come in for today’s 2015 Underwood Stakes betting favourite Fawkner with the Robert Hickmott-trained veteran well supported to make it back-to-back Group 1 wins this time in.

A dual Group 1 winner at Caulfield Racecourse, the eight-year-old son of Reset returns to the track he’s got such a great record for a shot at this afternoon’s $400,000 Group 1 Hyland Race Colours Underwood Stakes (1800m).

First-up Fawkner, who is out to become the first Underwood Stakes winner to salute for the punters since So You Think (2010), beat home a class field at Flemington in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) to become a triple Group 1 champion.

Now he shoots for a quartet of elite level victories when the proven stayer, who has winning form up to a mile and a half (2400m), goes up to the 1800m and jumps from a gun gate two draw with his Makybe Diva Stakes winning hoop Damien Oliver retaining the ride.

In the latest Underwood Stakes odds Fawkner has firmed in from $3.70 to $3.30 and is followed in the markets by just two other single figure hopes.

One of those is the early Underwood Stakes market mover, the Mick Burles-trained Tasmanian raider The Cleaner backed right in from $7 to $5.50 to also secure back-to-back wins this time in.

A fellow eight-year-old out to secure successive Underwood wins for the age group following the success of the Chris Waller-trained Foreteller in 2014, Savoire Vivre gelding The Cleaner won the Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley second-up on September 5.

He’s had three weeks between runs now and gets the inside run from barrier one this afternoon, a gate that hasn’t produced an Underwood Stakes winner since Intergaze (1999).

The last of the hopes under $10 for the win is then the John O’Shea-trained Contributer who is on the drift out from $4 to $4.80 to win second-up after a fifth to The Cleaner in the Dato’ when beaten over three lengths.

His first-up record (7-5-0-0) is better than his record two runs in (4-1-1-1) but he has won his only other Caulfield assignment to date back on Caulfield Cup Day last Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and is a dual Group 1 winner with success up to 2000m.

Money has also come in for one of the genuine roughie hopes, Magicool ($51 into $41) who looks over the odds as the Mark Kavanagh-trained Fastnet Rock four-year-old looks to return to his Group 1 Queensland Derby (2200m) winning form from the winter.

Other notable hopes looking better value as the punters shy away include the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes third placed Hong Kong import Dibayani ($12 out to $13) and Waller’s chance of back-to-back Underwood trophies Weary ($11 out to $15) who hasn’t won since January 31 in Sydney.
