2016 AR Creswick Series Final Betting Odds

Robert Smerdon’s flying colt Odyssey Moon is dominant early favourite to win Saturday’s AR Creswick Series Final 2016 at Flemington Racecourse despite a notable rise in weights for the feature.

The son of Snitzel comes off a string of excellent top three performances over the year including back-to-back Melbourne wins last month ahead of the $120,000 Listed A.R. Creswick Series Final (1200m) on the weekend.

The latest saw the Group 1 placed three-year-old post his third career win over 1000m at Flemington on June 25.

While jockey Craig Newitt retains the ride for Finals Day, Odyssey Moon rises from 54kg a fortnight ago to Saturday’s hefty 58.5kg top weight.

Despite also drawing wide with barrier 12 of 14, the bookies are taking no chances on the classy top fancy who sits top of the latest AR Creswick Series Final odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $3.20 to extend his winning streak.

Following closely is $4.20 second elect Sooboog also jumping from a double-digit draw (10) on a likely Heavy-rated Flemington track.

Dean Yendall rides the Darren Weir-trained colt, another son of Snitzel, who has had over a month between runs with his last start producing a fifth to Odyssey Moon over 1300m at Sandown on June 4.

He has won a subsequent 900m trial on a Heavy track however and if he is back to his best can perform under a favourable 56kg weight allocation.

Just two other runners are also under $10 in the current AR Creswick Series Final betting markets this Melbourne Winter Racing Carnival.

The early market mover is Prince Of Brooklyn ($7.50 into $6.50) followed by Lord Von Costa ($7.50) who jump alongside each other from barriers five and six respectively.

Dwayne Dunn has the mount on Mick Price’s Magnus colt Prince Of Brooklyn who comes off a second to Firsthand over the distance at Moonee Valley last month.

Lightly-raced, Saturday will be the galloper’s sixth career start and he has Group 3 winning form over the 1200m in Adelaide from last winter.

Lord Von Costa is locally trained at Flemington by Stephen Brown and ace hoop Craig Williams replaces Stephen Baster in the saddle of the super-consistent galloper.

From eight career starts the son of Von Costa De Hero is yet to finish out of the money, but he chases just his second win and his first since January.

He has had two Flemington runs so far for two second place efforts last month over 1000m, the latest behind Spieth a fortnight back.

At more generous odds and after an upset are the likes of Peter & Paul Snowden’s last start Newcastle winner We’re Sure ($10) and local Stratum gelding Crystal Dreamer ($13) who is three-from-four over the distance.
