2015 Emirates Stakes Odds: Equal Favourites Hard to Split

Two of the 16 milers engaged in the Emirates Stakes 2015 field this Saturday at Flemington Racecourse currently share top spot in the markets for the handicap classic on the final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Running as Flemington Race 7 at 4:20pm (AEST), this year’s $1 million Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) features a capacity line-up four of which are under double figures for the win at Ladbrokes.com.au who have Best Tote or SP + 20% across the Flemington card on Saturday.

Two gallopers sit as the equal $5 favourites in the latest markets with the bookies having a hard time separating the chances of Bow Creek and Magic Artist who are both second-up on the weekend.

Jumping from barrier 10, which last produced an Emirates Stakes winner back in 2006 when Divine Madonna (2006) became the last mare to beat home the boys, the John O’Shea-trained Bow Creek has James McDonald in the saddle retaining the ride.

McDonald was aboard the imported Shamardal stallion for his maiden run down under when runner-up at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day a fortnight ago in the Group 2 Crystal Mile (1600m), which All American (2009) ran third in before his Emirates Stakes win six years ago.

Bow Creek drops from 59kg that run to 55.5kg on Saturday, the same exact weight Hucklebuck carried to victory in the Emirates Stakes 12 months ago.

Magic Artist is a German raider prepared by last year’s Melbourne Cup winning trainer Andreas Wohler, the Iffraaj stallion coming off his Australian debut from Derby Day.

He raced first-up in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) over 400m further than Saturday’s clash and was far from disgraced carrying 59kg to a brave fourth behind the French visitor Gailo Chop beaten only a length.

From four previous 1600m runs Magic Artist has run second twice and will appreciate a drop back from 59kg to 54kg for his second run down under.

The next best in Emirates Stakes betting following closely at $6.50 is then Murray Baker’s Kiwi-trained four-year-old Turn Me Loose drawn in barrier 11 with Kerrin McEvoy aboard.

McEvoy won the 2001 Emirates Stakes aboard Grand Delight and since then four-year-olds have dominated the race with seven wins including the past two years straight.

Turn Me Loose has had three runs this campaign in Melbourne winning both the Listed Seymour Cup (1600m) and the Crystal Mile last time out giving him a perfect three-from-three record of the 1600m heading into Saturday’s class test.

The last of the single-figure fancies in the Emirates line-up this year is then the Darren Weir-trained 58kg top weight Lucky Hussler looking to emulate Happy Trails (2012) who is the only Emirates Stakes winner in over 30 years to carry that weight to victory.

Winner of the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) two back, Husson six-year-old Lucky Hussler was last seen running third in the Crystal Mile with 59kg and is looking to continue Weir’s dream Spring after he took out Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup in a massive upset with $101 outsider Prince Of Penzance.

The best fancied of the double-figure hopes is then Disposition ($10) in barrier nine with Damien Oliver aboard the Toorak Handicap runner-up who comes off a Derby Day win in the Group 3 Chatham Stakes (1400m) carrying three kilos more than his 54.5kgs on Saturday.
