The Heath Odds and Betting Update

Twelve runners remain in contention for Saturday’s Group 3 The Heath (1100m) at Caulfield Racecourse following this morning’s scratching of Truculent; a race that offers punters particularly good value from a betting standpoint.

Under The Louvre has not been seen since storming home to win the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) in Brisbane in early June, but remains sole occupant of the top line of The Heath betting with at a $3.30 quote.

Under The Louvre has been a strong and consistent performer for Robert Smerdon throughout his entire racing career so far; posting nine wins and a further thirteen minors through twenty-nine starts.

Trialling well in the lead-up to his return this year, the Excellent Art entire ran third in the Listed Bel Esprit Stakes (1100m) first-up; progressing to a close second behind Black Heart Bart in the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) in his only other start prior to the Stradbroke.

Under The Louvre has been charged with carrying a race-high 59kgs in The Heath, but he undoubtedly has the class to win this race.

Redzel and Hellbent have continued to receive steady support in 2016 The Heath betting markets and remain locked on the second line at $5.50 quotes.

Redzel has claimed three wins and as many minors through his ten career starts so far; highlighted by a classy performance for success in the Listed Fireball Stakes (1100m) at Randwick on March 5th.

Having progressed to fifth in the Listed Gosford Guineas (1200m) three weeks later, the Snitzel gelding has not been seen at the races since taking out the July Sprint (1100m) at Canterbury on July 23rd.

Redzel will undoubtedly require luck in running after drawing the wide and awkward barrier 13 for his run in The Heath.

Hellbent has been transferred to the care of Darren Weir for his 2016 Spring Carnival campaign, and arguably offers punters the best value for money at current The Heath odds.

Stamping himself as a colt to follow upon debuting for Canberra trainer Kurt Goldman midway through 2015, Hellbent won the Inglis Dash (1100m) on January 16th before being returned to the paddock.

Failing to fire when 12th in the Group 2 Arrowfield Sprint (1200m) on Day 2 of The Championships, the I Am Invincible entire will carry winning form into The Heath after comfortably taking out the Toronado @ Swettenham BM78 (1000m) on August 10th.
