2016 Victory Stakes Betting: Fell Swoop Odds-On

Matthew Dale’s flying TJ Smith Stakes runner-up Fell Swoop is the dominant odds-on favourite in Victory Stakes 2016 betting for the feature race at Doomben Racecourse this weekend in Brisbane.

Due to run as Doomben Race 6 at 3:07pm (AEST), this year’s $200,000 Group 2 National Fire Industry Association QLD Victory Stakes (1200m) features a small field of only nine weight-for-age hopefuls.

Sitting top of the line-up and top of the Victory Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au is Not A Single Doubt four-year-old Fell Swoop at a short $1.65 and firming for his Queensland race debut.

He is down in class after three elite level runs this time that has produced two Group 1 seconds, most recently behind Chautauqua in the TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on April 2.

Fell Swoop has been freshened-up, has the gun gate two draw and is a specialist at the distance boasting three wins and a second from four previous 1200m runs.

Jay Ford has the ride on Saturday as Fell Swoop gears up for the tougher Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival features including possibly the $1.5 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) on June 11, the Victory Stakes – Stradbroke double achieved last year by Srikandi (2015).

The previous year local Brisbane horseman Tony Gollan won the Victory Stakes and ran second in the Stradbroke with Temple Of Boom, the trainer back with two chances in Saturday’s field.

Gollan saddles up the rails-drawn Didntcostalot and Fontelina out wider in gate seven who pay $8 and $18 respectively in the latest Victory Stakes markets.

Both are first-up on the weekend, Tegan Harrison riding Danerich seven-year-old Didntcostalot while Fontelina has Jim Byrne aboard.

Didntcostalot won the Group 3 George Moore Stakes (1200m) at the track and distance in November before a last start sixth in the Gold Coast’s Magic Millions Sprint in early January, the gelding shooting for his fifth win from seven starts at the track.

Stablemate Fontelina is also a rising eight-year-old, the son of Testa Rosa out to atone for a 15th of 16 runners behind Lucky Hussler in the Gold Coast’s Magic Millions Cup last time out.

Following Fell Swoop in the Victory Stakes odds at an equal $6 meanwhile are co-second favourites Artlee and Knoydart drawn in gates nine and three respectively.

Prepared by John O’Shea for the Godolphin stable, More Than Ready six-year-old Knoydart has had four runs at Doomben for just the one second place finish to date when runner-up in the last year’s Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m).

He ran 14th in the TJ Smith Stakes in Sydney two back but improved in an easier grade on April 16 at the same Randwick track when narrowly beaten to cross second in the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes (1200m).

Artlee comes out of the same lead-up, the Todd Willan-trained Excellent Art five-year-old not as impressive when second last crossing ninth, but still only beaten two and three-quarter lengths by the 2016 Stradbroke Handicap-bound winner Music Magnate.
