Set to run as Race 9 at 5:25pm (AEST) on the bumper 10-race line-up at Caulfield on Saturday, this summer’s $120,000 Listed Swettenham Stud Lord Stakes (1700m) features a full field of 16 runners.

Leading the latest Lord Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au at a quote of $5, backed in from $5.50, is six-year-old Econsul mare Precious Gem who shoots for back-to-back wins after her victory at Flemington over 1400m on December 12.

The two weeks between runs looks ideal for her and she has winning form at the distance, but not the track with just the one third place finish from her five previous Caulfield assignments.

She gets in on the 54kg minimum here and is drawn ideally in barrier four with Chris Symons retaining the ride.

There are four other single figure hopes in Lord Stakes betting this year including co-favourite also paying $5, Tashbeeh.

Damian Lane is aboard the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Commands stallion, the four-year-old coming off a mile win at Flemington from two weeks ago.

He got weight relief from claiming apprentice Dylan Dunn that day and carried 57kg to victory, but will fly with just 54kg on his back on Saturday.

Two back Tashbeeh was runner-up to Charmed Harmony in the Group 3 Sandown Stakes (1500m) so has form against better company as he heads into his first 1700m run looking for his first top three run at Caulfield from three starts.

Next best in betting at $7.50 is Metaphorical drawn nicely in barrier two.

Peter Moody prepares the five-year-old Dylan Thomas mare who is third-up and who boasts winning form up to 2040m.

She was third over 1400m at Sandown on December 5 and Daniel Stackhouse takes over as the fifth hoop in as many starts to jump aboard.

Rounding out the hopes under $10 to take out the penultimate Boxing Day race at Caulfield this summer are Jacquinot Bay ($9) with the outside barrier (16) to overcome and fellow $9 chance Held Hostage shooting for three wins on the trot.

Also from the Hayes & Dabernig stables, Galileo eight-year-old Jacquinot Bay has star hoop Damien Oliver in the saddle on Saturday following three fourth place efforts.

Two back the veteran was beaten 2.7 lengths by Casino Dancer in the Group 3 Eclipse Stakes (1800m) at Sandown before a fourth to Electric Fusion over the mile at the same track from December 5.

Held Hostage is a Phillip Stokes-trained Adelaide raider in flying form, the five-year-old daughter of Fastnet Rock having won over 1500m and 2006m respectively back home over the past month.

At more generous odds for an upset Lord Stakes result are the likes of the Tony McEvoy-trained Sale Cup winner Evangelist ($13) and Mick Cerchi’s Face Vale six-year-old Sadaqa ($15) drawn in barriers 13 and 12 respectively.
