Fourteen two-year-olds will line up for the 2016 Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) at Doomben tomorrow; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Godolphin colt Souchez remains outright $3 favourite in 2016 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of Attention ($6.50) and Cadogan ($7).
Will Souchez justify favouritism and win the BRC Sires’ produce Stakes, or will one of his talented rivals claim an upset?
Souchez is yet to finish outside the first three through four career starts, is drawn ideally in barrier 2 with James McDonald aboard and has reportedly taken plenty of benefit from a first-up run for third in the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) a fortnight ago. Debuting for success in a Rosehill minor over 1100m in late December, the Lonhro colt resumed this year for third in the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) before savaging the line for success in the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) on March 12th. Having already experienced some support in BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes betting markets, Souchez still represents value at his current quote.
Nikitas failed to handle the late pace when eighth in the Champagne Classic first-up, but is sure to have taken plenty of benefit from the hit-out and could very well receive the run of the race in the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes from barrier 5. Debuting to racing for success in the talent-rich Canadian Club Handicap (1200m) in December, the Snitzel colt progressed to third in the Group 3 McLachlan Stakes (1200m) before charging home for second behind Capitalist in the Magic Millions 2.y.o Guineas (1200m) on January 9th. Regular hoop Michael Cahill has been confirmed to retain the ride this weekend.
Oink is another runner who is yet to finish outside the first three, and is simply over the 2016 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes odds at his current quote of $21 for success or $5.70 to finish in the first three. Debuting for second in the Winning Edge Presentations Handicap (1050m), the Sebring gelding posted a maiden win in the SQS Haulage Handicap (1050m) on April 9th before placing third in the Rent 2 Own Cars Australia Plate (1000m) on April 23rd. Having charged home to finish an agonizingly-close second in the Group 3 Ken Russell Memorial (1200m) on May 7th, Oink will leave from barrier 10 with Glen Colless aboard this weekend.
