Mackintosh Tops 2016 Grand Prix Stakes Betting

Chris Waller’s Queensland Derby favourite Mackintosh is also leading Grand Prix Stakes 2016 betting for this weekend at Doomben Racecourse on the back of an earlier Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival win at the track.

The in-form son of Pins is one of 14 three-year-olds running in the last on Doomben 10,000 Day on Saturday, the $150,000 Group 3 Mullins Lawyers Grand Prix Stakes (2200m) due to run as Race 8 at 4:37pm (AEST).

Last time out the gelding backed-up from a 1500m Hawkesbury win to take out the Group 3 Rough Habit Plate (2000m) at Doomben on May 14 and the two weeks between runs looks ideal for the young gun heading towards the $600,000 Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) at Eagle Farm on June 11.

The latest Grand Prix Stakes odds at have Mackintosh at $2.25 and firming, jockey Blake Shinn retaining the ride from a gun gate three draw.

Second favourite in Grand Prix Stakes betting at $4.50 is another last-start winner, the Darren Weir-trained Howard Be Thy Name shooting for his fifth win on the trot.

Brad Rawiller rides the Redoute’s Choice colt whose three latest victories have been in Adelaide including the Group 1 SA Derby (2500m) last time out.

Howard Be Thy Name drops in distance from his elite level win at Morphettville a fortnight back and is also heading towards the Queensland Derby on Stradbroke Handicap Day.

The last single-figure fancy for the Grand Prix this winter at $7.50 is Cylinder Beach for local trainer Desleigh Forster.

Two back the smart son of Showcasing won the Group 3 Gunsynd Classic (1630m) at Doomben before his second in the Rough Habit when defeated nearly three lengths by Mackintosh who he is out to turn the tables on this Saturday in the rematch.

Following the top three in the markets are a number of other livewire hopes at generous odds including the Bryan Guy-trained More Than Ready gelding Eagle Way ($11) from the Gold Coast coming off a fourth in the Rough Habit, David Vandyke’s son of Hinchinbrook Brazen ($12) coming off a third in the same traditional lead-up and the John O’Shea-trained Godolphin galloper Unbreakable ($16) in the outside alley for his Black-Type debut at start number 13.
