Overstep Heads 2016 Talindert Stakes Betting Odds

Despite having had zero race experience and being far from guaranteed a run as the second emergency for Saturday’s Talindert Stakes 2016, the unraced Peter Moody-trained Overstep sits top of the odds for the Flemington black-type.

Running as the second on a bumper nine-race card for Black Caviar Lightning Day on the weekend, a full field of two-year-olds is engaged for this year’s $120,000 Listed International Race Clubs Talindert Stakes (1100m).

Of the 18 final acceptors, only 16 of which are guaranteed a run based on the field limit, the best fancied in the latest Talindert Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $3.40 is the second spare seeking a run Overstep.

The Exceed And Excel filly might not have a previous start on the record, but she caught the eye with a very easy four and a half-length Cranbourne trial win over 800m on February 8.

She was a pricey yearling purchase and the trial form suggests she could live up to the hype should she gain a run drawn gate three with Ben Melham on standby for the ride.

Two-years-old races are always tough to predict, but currently there are just three other single figure hopes in Talindert Stakes betting this Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

The second favourite at $3.80 for the win despite drawn a nasty gate out in 16 is Craig Williams’ mount Weatherly.

Prepared at Scone by Paul Messara the Beneteau colt debuted at Caulfield in the Listed Blue Diamond Preview (C&G) back on January crossing mid-field behind Cohesion.

There was plenty of merit in the run and he was scratched from his assignment last weekend with mucus, which he has overcome ahead of his shot at another big effort here.

The next best in betting are first emergency Clockwork Orange ($7) also out in double digits (14) and Pearl Congenial ($8) who the bookies rate a big hope even out in barrier 15 with Dwayne Dunn to ride.

More Than Ready filly Clockwork Orange is yet to trial officially for Lindsay Park’s David Hayes & Tom Dabernig, but the Robert Smerdon-trained daughter of Gio Ponti Pearl Congenial has had two starts for a second and a third so far.

She was runner-up in her maiden run at Caulfield in the Listed Debutant takes (1000m) before her third in the lucrative Inglis 2YO Banner (1000m) on Cox Plate Day last October.

At more generous Talindert Stakes odds is the highest-rated runner in the mix is the Tony McEvoy-trained son of Not A Single Doubt Jackson ($10) and Brittany ($10) who James McDonald will ride form a gun gate two draw.

Jackson won the Listed Merson Cooper Stakes (1000m) on debut in mid-November at Sandown before his Inglis Nursery sixth to current Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes betting favourite Extreme Choice.

Brittany has had one previous run for Godolphin’s John O’Shea, the Street Cry filly crossing second over 1000m at Moonee Valley behind Areti earlier in the week.

The other $10 hope is early Talindert Stakes market mover Want To Rock, the Matthew Ellerton & Simon Zahra-trained Wanted filly who has winning form at the track and is out to improve on her Blue Diamond Fillies Preview seventh last time out.

Other noteworthy runners include the nicely bred Ciaron Maher-trained Sepoy colt Havildar ($12), Battle Order ($12) on debut for trainer Mick Price and fellow debutant Happy Halloween ($13) for Mornington horseman Jerome Hunter.
