2015 Bernborough Handicap Odds: Hopfgarten Narrow Favourite

A bumper 10-race program in Brisbane this Saturday at Doomben Racecourse is headlined by the Bernborough Handicap 2015 where a tight betting market is led by the Robert Heathcote-trained Hopfgarten.

Running as Race 9 at 4:58pm (QLD time), this year’s edition of the $175,000 Listed Treasury Casino & Hotel Bernborough Handicap (1615m) features a 14-starter field with five runners currently under double figures for the win.

Bernborough Handicap odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, who are offering Best Tote or SP + 20% on the third leg of the Brisbane Summer Racing Series Triple Crown, are narrowly led by Mossman five-year-old Hopfgarten at $4.80.

Drawn in barrier seven with interstate hoop Craig Williams retaining the ride, the gelding missed the kick last time out and was brave in defeat from barrier 12 of 14 when just nosed out of the win in the Listed Brisbane Handicap (1640m) by Traveston Girl.

If he gets away better from a nice barrier seven draw on Saturday Hopfgarten looks a livewire hope of turning the tables on the Tony Gollan-trained Brisbane Handicap winner who is also in the mix for the rematch this weekend.

She occupies the second line of Bernborough Handicap betting at $5 and jumps from gate eight with Tegan Harrison in the saddle once again.

A four-year-old daughter of Flying Spur, Traveston Girl has had three previous runs over the Doomben mile for two wins thanks to her victories in both the Recognition Stakes and the Brisbane Handicap.

She goes up from 54kg to 55.5kg as she shoots for the Triple Crown hat-trick and could be hard to run down again if she handles the extra kilos.

Close third favourite and early market mover at $5.50 is the nicely-drawn Worthy Cause from the Sunshine Coast.

John Zielke’s Choisir four-year-old is back in Brisbane off a stellar Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival raid that included a last start third to Casino Cancer at Sandown-Hillside on November 14 in the Group 3 Eclipse Stakes (1800m).

A dual winner from seven previous Doomben runs, the stallion has been freshened-up since that Group 3 with a winning barrier trial at home over 1270m this week and apprentice Luke Dittman is on board again.

The other two under $10 to take out the Bernborough this summer are Role Model ($6) in barrier two and Centre Pivot ($9) out wider in gate 10.

Champion jockey Glen Boss rides the Gai Waterhouse-trained Sydney visitor Role Model from the nice starting gate, the in-form Bel Danoro mare coming off two top three runs at Rosehill.

Saturday marks the five-year-old’s first run at the track and she is out to further frank the form from a Benchmark 85 over 1500m at Rosehill from late November.

Winner of that race Happy Clapper raced at Randwick last weekend and saluted for the punters as the favourite in the Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m), Role Model looking to keep that form gong after she ran third from barrier 13 of 13 last time out.

Centre Pivot meanwhile has Blake Shinn in the saddle this weekend, the More Than Ready five-year-old looking to atone for a last start 10th to Mighty Lucky in the Listed Festival Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill from late last month.
