Disposition Leads Toorak Handicap 2015 Odds

Former star WA galloper Disposition is well fancied in the early 2015 Toorak Handicap odds to win his maiden Group 1 trophy at Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne this Saturday.

Now prepared by Lee & Anthony Freedman, the lightly-raced Reset four-year-old has just his 11th career start in the $400,000 Group 1 David Jones NBCF Toorak Handicap (1600m) on Caulfield Guineas Day on the weekend.

The field is down to 17 starters following the early scratching of the widely-drawn Chris Waller-trained mare Amicus, with Disposition jumping from barrier seven with Dwayne Dunn booked for the ride.

Barrier seven has produced two Toorak Handicap winners in the past six years including Solzhenitsyn (2013), Disposition currently paying $4.80 to become the next through Ladbrokes.com.au – home of Best Tote or SP + 20% on all Caulfield races on Saturday!

The early market mover Disposition opened at $5.50 but has been well backed to post his sixth career win and his first since a black-type victory over 1400m at Flemington on September 12.

He is twice Group 1 performed for a Kingston Town Classic (1800m) second to Moriarty back in Perth last December and another second last time out on September 26 at Caulfield when runner-up beaten just a nose in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m).

Three other Toorak Handicap hopes are also under $10 for the win this weekend including Lucky Hussler ($5.50) jumping from barrier four with Glen Boss to ride the Darren Weir-trained six-year-old.

Weir won the Toorak last year with Trust In A Gust (2014), Lucky Hussler out to go back-to-back for his trainer and win his first race since the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley in late March.

Weir’s other chance at back-to-back Toorak Handicap trophies is Stratum Star, occupying the next line of betting at $6.50 with a gun barrier two draw and Craig Williams in the saddle.

The four-year-old Stratum stallion comes off two top runs having crossed third to Boban in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) in late August before his victory in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes that has produced the past three Toorak winners.

Rounding out the single figure fancies at $9 is then Noble Protector in gate six, Robert Smerdon’s mare getting in on the 54kg minimum as she looks to join Allez Wonder (2009) and More Joyous (2010) as the most recent Toorak Handicap winning mares.

Noble Protector’s last win was the Group 2 Sunline Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley in March, after which she ran a brave third under two lengths off Amanpour in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) in Sydney.

She returned at Flemington on September 12 with a below par 13th to Amicus in the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m), but is tipped to return to form second-up (4-3-0-1) at her pet distance (6-3-1-1).

At longer odds but still boasting genuine claims for a Toorak Handicap win this season are the likes of Waller’s Sir Rupert Clarke fourth placegetter Strawberry Boy ($13), Peter Moody’s well weighted mare Abidewithme ($14), stablemate Hi World ($15) and the Team Hawkes-trained Ninth Legion ($15).
