Palentino Odds-On in 2016 Alister Clark Stakes Betting

Easily the highest-rated three-year-old in Friday night’s Moonee Valley feature, the Darren Weir-trained Palentino chases back-to-back Melbourne wins lining up as the favourite in Alister Clark Stakes 2016 betting.

Eleven gallopers are in the mix for this year’s $200,000 Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) with Weir saddling-up the in-form Teofilo colt Palentino from barrier six.

The horse’s record should read two wins on the trot after he lost the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) on protest before his Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) win over the Flemington mile a fortnight back.

He is now out to extend his brilliance to 2040m shooting for a fourth official win from seven starts under the lights in his Moonee Valley debut with Mark Zahra retaining the ride.

Palentino worked hard from the outside barrier 15 in the Guineas and against a smaller field on Friday evening, he is well supported paying $1.70 to salute in the Alister Clark Stakes.

There is just one other runner under $10 in the latest Alister Clark Stakes odds to beat home the odds-on favourite with Tally at $4 to win his fourth from as many starts this time in.

Godolphin head trainer John O’Shea saddles-up this Street Cry colt who is on a winning streak including success over the mile at Moonee Valley two back and a Group 2 Autumn Classic (1800m) win at Caulfield in late February.

Tally is proven at the tight turns at the Valley and stepping up 2000m looks a non-issue after he had nearly two lengths to spare over next-past-the-post – Flying Light – last start.

The next best in Alister Clark Stakes betting this Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival are $12 shots Flying Light and the market mover Charlevoix backed in early from $17.

As mentioned the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Exceed And Excel gelding Flying Light was runner-up to Tally last time out, which followed a smart win of his own over the track and distance he returns to for the rematch.

Barrier five will suit to a tee and with Damian Lane retaining the ride, he is a genuine chance to turn the tables on his last start conqueror when stepping back up in distance.

Charlevoix is also drawn nicely in gate three for jockey Brad Rawiller, the Michael Kent-trained New Approach colt having just his third career start.

He is another Autumn Classic graduate increasing in metres this weekend after going down by nearly six lengths last start.

Other notable hopes including the Mick Price-trained Autumn Classic third placed Redoute’s Choice colt Top Ravine ($19) for this season’s Blue Diamond winning horseman and Michael Moroney’s last start Pakenham winner War Legend ($21) at roughies’ prices chasing the upset win.
