Vanbrugh Tops 2015 Spring Champion Stakes Field & Odds

Chris Waller’s in-form colt Vanbrugh has opened odds-on favourite to take out the feature race in Sydney this weekend with a win in the Spring Champion Stakes 2015 at Royal Randwick.

Due to jump as Randwick Race 6 at 4:10pm (AEST), this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Moet & Chandon Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) has attracted a final field of 10 three-year-olds.

Sitting top of the field and the latest Spring Champion Stakes odds at, home of the $700 bonus bet for new depositing players that quote the code SPRINGBONUS this season, at an odds-on price of $1.85 is Waller’s son of Encosta De Lago Vanbrugh.

A winner of three of his eight starts to date he has won his past two on the trot including a one and three quarter length effort in the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes (1800m) at Rosehill on September 26.

Glyn Schofield replaces Hugh Bowman in the saddle for the Group 1 test on Saturday where Sydney’s best Waller shoots for his maiden Spring Champion Stakes win.

The Gloaming Stakes has produced four of the past five Spring Champion Stakes winners including It’s A Dundeel (2012) and Complacent (2013) who both completed the double Vanbrugh is well fancied to finish off this weekend.

Gloaming Stakes runner-up Tatoosh and third placed Man Of Choice are both also in the Group 1 field for Saturday looking to improve on their positions and turn the tables on Vanbrugh paying $7 and $11 respectively in the current markets.

Paul Perry’s Beneteau gelding Tatoosh was second for the third time on the trot in the Gloaming Stakes from the outside barrier 12 draw having also been runner-up to Waller-trained gallopers Metallic Crown in the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) at Randwick and Devil Hawk in the Group 3 Newcastle Spring Stakes (1600m) in September.

This weekend he is drawn far better in barrier four with Corey Brown booked to ride the perennial placegetter.

Man Of Choice is also drawn a treat with the rails run from barrier one for his hoop Sam Clipperton, the Luke Price-trained Manhattan Rain gelding having won over the Kembla Grange mile before his third in the Gloaming with Clipperton also in the saddle.

The early Spring Champion Stakes market mover and second pick in betting behind Vanbrugh meanwhile is fellow last start winner Too Good To Refuse ($7 into $6.50) who jumps from gate three with Robbie Fradd aboard the in-form Desleigh Forster-trained Brisbane visitor.

The Rothesay colt has won his past two on the trot back home at Doomben including over 1640m by three and a half lengths on September 19 and is well fancied to handle this notable rise in class and distance.

Also in the top half of the Spring Champion Stakes betting markets are the Team Hawkes-trained Fastnet Rock colt Jadeer ($10) coming off a 2040m win at Moonee Valley, Waller’s Purrealist colt Devil Hawk ($15) and the Bjorn Baker-trained Gold Ambition ($16).

Devil Hawk won the Group 3 Spring Stakes (1600m) at Newcastle two back before his sixth in the Gloaming Stakes over the extra metres, while Savabeel gelding Gold Ambition was third in the Newcastle race and fifth in the Gloaming.
