Mediocre fields have faced off in recent editions of the first feature of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival in recent years, but the line-up for this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Ladbrokes C.F. Orr Stakes (1400m) is outstanding.

There are 18 hopefuls in the mix and 13 of those have previous Group 1 wins on the record including the current $4.60 favourite Lucky Hussler who is looking to become the seventh straight punters’ pick to salute.

Hot on his heels in the latest CF Orr Stakes odds at $4.80 is returning Emirates Stakes winner Turn Me Loose who boasts the highest Win (55%) and Place (91%) rate of any horse in the field.

So will the top two in CF Orr Stakes betting fight it out in the quinella or is there an upset on the cards?

Earlier we published our exclusive 2016 C.F. Orr Stakes Form Guide & Preview and now it’s time for the tips you can take to the race sponsor Ladbrokes.com.au to clean up at Caulfield this weekend!


#3 Boban ($8.50)

Going for the upset and backing the Chris Waller-trained five-time Group 1 winner Boban to return to form first-up even from his wide barrier 13 draw. The gate hasn’t produced a winner in over 30 years, but Typhoon Tracy (11 of 16 in 2011) and Shinzig (12 of 16 in 2008) have got the job done from wide alleys in recent editions. This six-year-old is classy when in-form and has Group 1 winning experience at the track and distance from last August in the Memsie Stakes. Weight-for-age suits, he’s two-from-four at the track and the 1400m is ideal (14-6-3-0). He also goes well fresh and was very competitive last time in up until his Darley Classic last (9th) when dropped back in distance.


#7 Turn Me Loose ($4.80)

Deserving favourite who will be finishing off very well late, so tipping this as a close clash. Murray Baker’s stallion may not have experience at the track, but the flying four-year-old smashed out his Melbourne Spring campaign winning three on the trot over a mile including the Emirates Stakes in elite level company. He has two seconds from three previous first-up runs so the shorter distance should suit on his return. From barrier 10 he’ll be going up to lead and if he can hold that spot he’ll be hard to hold out.


#17 Suavito ($15)

Think Nigel Blackiston’s classy Thorn Park mares is one of the best value Place chances in the race. This is her first-up run since a seventh in the Doncaster Mile in Sydney back in April and she returns off a lengthy let-up. If she is back to her best she is right in the mix. She flies fresh (4-2-1-1), won her last start at the track taking out the 2014 Futurity Stakes, is a three time winner over the 1400m at Caulfield and mares have a good Orr Stakes record.
