Telopea Tops 2016 Blazer Stakes Odds & Betting

The Darren Weir-trained Telopea is the early favourite in Blazer Stakes 2016 betting to handle a quick back-up and post her first win of the season at Flemington Racecourse on Sunday.

Last Saturday at Caulfield the six-year-old daughter of Pivotal ran a brave eighth in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) beaten under three lengths in the handicap clash.

She drops notably in class for her Turnbull Stakes Day run just eight days later taking on a field of fellow mares in the $200,000 Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m).

A capacity Blazer Stakes field of 16 is engaged for the set weights plus penalties showdown and Telopea is drawn a treat in barrier three with Damien Oliver coming back on board.

He rode her for her two season openers before Michael Dee was in the saddle for the apprentice claim in the Sir Rupert, Telopea going up from 52kg last weekend to 55kg on Sunday.

She is the early market mover backed in from $7 to $6 favouritism in the latest Blazer Stakes odds at having a strong record over 1400m (9-4-2-0) as she chases her first win since saluting at the track / distance in the Leilani Final from early July.

Despite the full field, just three other acceptors are under $10 in the latest Blazer Stakes betting markets including Iggimacool and French Emotion at $7.50 each.

Iggimacool is also accepted for a Friday night run at Moonee Valley in the Group 2 Stocks Stakes (1600m), the Robert Smerdon-trained mare looking to atone for her two unplaced runs this time in.

If she scratches out of the Moir Stakes Night run in favour of the Flemington start on Sunday, she will be chasing her fourth win from six starts at the track where she was last seen winning the Listed Winter Championship Final (1600m) on July 9.

French Emotion represents Sydney’s Chris Waller, the five-year-old daughter of Snitzel drawn wide in barrier 16 (into 13 with the emergencies coming out).

She comes off a Caulfield second over 1400m from two weeks ago when beaten only a quarter-length carrying 58kg and will relish the drop back in weight for the Blazer Stakes assignment.

The other single-figure hope is the second emergency Euro Angel ($9) who is being kept safe in betting despite needing two withdrawals from the field to even get a run.

A lightly-raced Team Hawkes-trained four-year-old, Euro Angel has won two of her four starts to date and placed in the other two.

She hasn’t raced since the winter when runner-up over the mile at Flemington in the Rivette Final and won her only other start at the track by over three lengths as a three-year-old.

Looking further down the Blazer Stakes markets there looks plenty of genuine claims at juicy odds including Jessy Belle ($11) who dead-heated for third in the race last spring, Rockolicious ($12) in a gun barrier two draw with Craig Williams to ride and the in-form Phillip Stokes-trained Miss Gunpowder ($13).
