Due to jump as Caulfield Race 8 at 4:15pm (AEST) on the nine-race program, this season’s $150,000 Group 3 Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) field features 16 classy sprinters.

Heading the latest Sir John Monash Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au – home of Odds Boost – at a quote of $4.40 and firming is the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Fast ‘N’ Rocking.

Dwayne Dunn rides the five-year-old from a mid-field barrier six draw, the horse racing for the first time since his close fourth behind Black Heart Bart in the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m).

From 16 previous Caulfield runs Fast ‘N’ Rocking has enjoyed three wins, two seconds and a third, but his last run at the track was a 10th to Flamberge in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) in late February.

Saturday he faces an easier class of rivals and with a credible fresh record the bookies are taking no chances with the gelding who hasn’t won a race since October last year.

The other best fancied in the Sir John Monash Stakes odds include Mark Kavanagh’s Manhattan Rain mare Wild Rain ($6.50) who has a stellar record over the distance (7-3-3-0), the Ciaron Maher-trained Girl Guide ($6.50) and the 2014 winner Lord Of The Sky ($7).

So will the best in betting finish in the money or is there value tipping an upset Sir John Monash Stakes result from the likes of the Darren Weir-trained Thermal Current ($14) or Runsati ($15) drawn a treat in barrier two?


#6 Thermal Current ($14)

Like the value on offer for this last start Swan Hill winner from the record-breaking stables of Weir. Weir is on fire this season and could bag another winter Black-Type with this Exceed And Excel gelding whose last start produced a Gold Topaz (1200m) victory on June 10. A freshen-up since has the horse ticking along nicely, he goes well fresh, loves the distance (8-2-2-0) and comes off a trial win in the mud. Will get the run of the race from barrier four and has fitness on his side.


#1 Fast ‘N’ Rocking ($4.40)

Lots of boxes ticked by the favourite who is also drawn a treat (6) and has Dunn aboard. The duo combined two back in mid-April for a Group 3 third at Randwick, he’ll enjoy getting back to Caulfield where he is a multiple winner and is a Group 1 performed galloper with plenty of class. Has been a while between runs, but this grade of race suits and he’ll be finishing strongly right up there.


#11 Olivier ($26)

Another big value punt for a place in the Sir John Monash this year and another Weir-trained galloper from the right stable. A five-year-old son of Statue Of Liberty, he was last seen running second (defeated a short half-head) over 1050m in Adelaide on June 25. Three weeks between runs is ideal, has strong form at Caulfield (6-2-1-1) where he won back-to-back races over this distance earlier in the winter. Right track, right distance – if he handles gate 12 and WFA he’s a top three chance for sure.
