2016 VRC-CRV Winter Championship Final Tips

Fourteen talented runners have been confirmed to line up for Saturday’s Listed VRC-CRV Winter Championship Final (1600m) at Flemington Racecourse; a race that arguably offers punters the best value for money of any race in Melbourne this weekend.

Macedon Lodge runner Chance To Dance ($4.40) is yet to find peak condition this time but interestingly remains an outright favourite in Winter Championship Final betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of Iggimacool and By The Grace; currently tied on the second line at $7 quotes.

Will Chance To Dance justify favouritism and return to winning form in the Winter Championship Final, or will one of his talented rivals post an upset?


Kenjorwood ($7.50)

Kenjorwood has returned to competitive form since transferring to the care of Darren Weir and while undoubtedly requiring luck from barrier 14, represents terrific value at current Winter Championship Final odds of $7.50. Posting a commendable career total of eight wins and fifteen minors through his thirty-eight competitive starts, the Snippetson gelding charged home to win the Jim Conway Handicap (1600m) first-up on May 28th before placing third in the GJK Facility Cup (1600m) last time out on June 18th. In-form hoop Brad Rawiller will pilot the six-year-old this weekend, whose experience is sure to count for a lot.


Petrology ($41)

Petrology is a stakes winner at the class and distance, and while yet to find consistent form this time in, is arguably offered his best chance of a return to form under the conditions of the Winter Championship Final. Claiming four wins and as many minors through twenty-four starts, Petrology’s career to date is undoubtedly highlighted by consecutive victories in the Listed TV Stakes (1800m) and Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) in late 2014. Having won the Importer City Timber Handicap (1600m) most notably this time on May 14th, the Fastnet Rock gelding will leave from the ideal barrier 6 and will carry only 56.5kgs in the Winter Championship Final.


Rugged Cross ($21)

Another runner that is currently over the Winter Championship Final odds at his current quote is the Darren Weir-trained Rugged Cross. A strong and consistent performer in events similar to this in a busy career under the guidance of Chris Waller, the Cape Cross gelding debut for Weir for second in the Fight Cancer Foundation Handicap (1400m) in September last year and was immediately returned to the paddock. Clearly requiring a run when 13th in the Mercedes Benz Handicap (1400m) first-up this time, Rugged Cross has since placed eighth in the Better Loosen Up Handicap (1400m) and fourth in the GJK Facility Cup.
