2015 Salinger Stakes Betting Tips

The last on a bumper all-black type Victoria Derby Day line-up at Flemington Racecourse this Saturday is the Salinger Stakes 2015, betting tips for the handicap sprint found below.

Due to bring the Derby Day action to a close as Race 9 at 5:20pm (AEST), and available at Best Tote or SP + 20% along with all eight other Flemington races on Saturday, the $300,000 Group 2 Salinger Stakes (1200m) is known this year as the tab.com.au Stakes.

A field of 14 was originally accepted by the early scratching of Kuro leaves 13 in the mix, the Salinger Stakes betting markets led by Under The Louvre ($4).

Drawn a treat in barrier two, the consistent Excellent Art stallion is prepared by Robert Smerdon and comes off three top three runs including a third to Stratum Star in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) in late September.

His final lead-up into Saturday was a second on Caulfield Cup Day to Vashka in the Group 3 Moonga Stakes (1400m) carrying 56.6kg from barrier 12 of 12.

Brenton Avdulla takes over for the suspended Mark Zahra aboard the five-year-old who is set to relish a better barrier this weekend and only goes up half a kilo.

Close second favourite at $4.80, in from $5.50, in the Salinger Stakes odds is the Chris Waller-trained Delectation jumping one further out in barrier three with last Saturday’s Cox Plate winning hoop Hugh Bowman aboard.

Carrying 56.5kg on Saturday, the Shamardal four-year-old is down a half-kilo from the weight he had when runner-up to subsequent Manikato Stakes champion Chautauqua in the Group 2 Gilgai Stakes (1200m) at Flemington at the start of the month.

So will the top two in betting run the Salinger Stakes quinella on Saturday or will a longer priced hope score the upset such as the market mover Dothraki ($7.50) coming off a black-type Randwick win or the John O’Shea-trained Knoydart ($11) who ran third in the Gilgai last time out?


#6 Delectation ($4.80)

Chris Waller and Hugh Bowman are in flying form and that can continue here with Delectation drawn for the win in barrier three. He drops in weight from last time out and third-up should be set to peak at a track he’s had three runs for two seconds at previously. The latest of those was three weeks ago when only a length off star Group 1 sprinter Chautauqua who franked the form coming out of the Gilgai when taking out last Friday night’s Manikato Stakes. Hasn’t won since April but loves this distance (11-3-4-2) and is flying.


#12 Bring Me The Maid ($10)

For value the Peter Moody-trained mare in barrier four one outside of Delectation is a top hope for a place. She was runner-up to Delectation in the Group 2 Arrowfield Stakes in the autumn before a fourth in the Group 1 BTC Dup also run over 1200m. The four-year-old daughter of Sebring is over her favourite distance again here (8-2-1-3) and is one-from-two at Flemington. She comes off a third to Politeness in Group 3 company at Caulfield and looks set to take on the boys here getting in on just 53kg after carting 58kg last time out.


#5 Under The Louvre ($4)

The favourite has definite claims and cannot be excluded. Will fly from the barrier after a tough run from the outside alley last start for the second in the Moonga Stakes. Has a 50% winning strike rate as a six-time winner over the 1200m, and also has a nice record down the Flemington straight (6-1-2-1). He likes this track and can return to winning form if he pulls out the right finishing burst.
