Flippant Leads 2017 Aurie’s Star Handicap Betting

Ten sprinters have been confirmed to step out in Saturday’s featured Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap (1200m) at Flemington Racecourse; offering punters terrific value from a betting perspective and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Flippant has continued to receive steady support in 2017 Aurie’s Star Handicap betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au and has firmed into outright $4.50 favouritism.

Flippant has been a strong and consistent performer throughout her entire racing career so far and has steadily built to the task this time in.

Sent to the paddock after finishing third in both the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m) and Group 2 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) in early autumn, the Hinchinbrook mare resumed this time for fifth in the Group 3 Healy Stakes (1200m) on June 24th.

Last seen running third in the Listed Ramornie Handicap (1200m) on July 12th, Flippant has trialled well in the lead-up to this race and will carry only 54.5kgs in the Aurie’s Star Handicap.

Cannyescent is yet to herald much interest in 2017 Aurie’s Star Handicap betting markets, but remains sole occupant of the second line at generous $5.50 odds.

Cannyescent has produced a number of strong performances and results throughout his entire racing career, but has undoubtedly found his best form since transferring to the care of Lindsay Park.

Winner of five of his seven starts this time in, the Canny Lad gelding stormed home to win the Foodbank BM92 (1350m) on May 6th, before repeating that performance and result in the Le Pine Funerals BM84 (1400m) three weeks later.

Last seen beating another handy field to the line in the Brian Beattie Handicap (1400m) on June 24th, Cannyescent is sure to have relished six weeks between starts, is drawn well to find the outside rail and has the notable advantage champion hoop Damien Oliver in the saddle.

Group 1 winner Hey Doc has been all but abandoned in Aurie’s Star Handicap betting markets, while Grande Rosso has received the greatest market share of attention and the pair are now locked on the third line at $6 quotes.

Hey Doc returned to racing in autumn for third in the Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1200m) before storming home to take out the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) on February 18th.

Breaking through for a maiden win at the highest level in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m), the Duporth gelding failed to fire in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m), but returned in the Adelaide Autumn Carnival to finish a credible sixth in the twenty-horse The Goodwood field.

A strong and consistent performer through summer and winter, Grande Rosso won the Vobis Gold Bullion (1400m) and each of the Listed Chester Manifold Stakes (1400m) and Listed John Dillon Stakes (1400m) most notably.

The horse may require a run to return to peak condition and is arguably at his best over 1400m.

I Am A Star has drifted noticeably after opening at Aurie’s Star Handicap odds of $4.60 and represents outstanding value at a current $7.50 quote.
