Due to jump as Randwick Race 4 at 1:45pm (AEST), this year’s edition of the $125,000 Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) features nine three-year-olds.

Leading the latest Up And Coming Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au – home of Odds Boost – at a quote of $3.50 is the David & Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained Derryn.

A nicely-bred son of Hinchinbrook, the colt has had two runs both in Melbourne to date and makes his Sydney debut on the back of a win from a wide alley over 1000m at Caulfield on July 30.

With the favourite untested this way of racing or over further than 1000m, the Up And Coming Stakes betting markets look full of value this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

The other best fancied by the bookies are last start The Rosebud winner Thronum ($3.90) for Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott, Team Hawkes’ Champagne Stakes third placegetter Divine Prophet ($4.40) and market mover Taj Mahal ($6.50) representing Team Snowden.

With so many live-wire chances in an open race see below for our inside Up And Coming Stakes tips.


#5 Taj Mahal ($6.50)

The Snowden saved Mediterranean for Saturday week’s Run To The Rose but still saddle-up a big chance from barrier four with Kerrin McEvoy riding this More Than Ready colt. Taj Mahal’s biggest plus is he is proven at the distance (1300m) having won at Warwick Farm over the meters in early April. He has trialled twice since nicely at Randwick giving him the element of fitness and think he’s the smoky in this line-up.


#1 Prized Icon ($9)

James Cummings’ fellow More Than Ready colt won the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) over the mile here back in mid-April so is lumped with the hefty 61kg top weight for this first-up run. Hugh Bowman jumps aboard, the elite level performer has trialled twice and the distance when resuming should suit. If he handles the kilos he is the class runner to beat.


#2 Thronum ($3.90)

Waterhouse’s consistent Snitzel colt has won three of his four runs and his only loss was a second at Canterbury to Tango Rain. He beat home Mediterranean in the Rosebud on a mud Randwick track a fortnight ago and is looking to retain his undefeated status at the course (2-2-0-0). Tommy Berry is replaced by James McDonald for this with the galloper drawn in gate six and dropping from 58kg last start to a manageable 55.5kg on the weekend. Big ticks.
