Lankan Rupee a Dominant Favourite in Spring Stakes Betting

Fourteen sprinters have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s featured Group 3 Spring Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville Racecourse, however veteran runner Lankan Rupee is undoubtedly the horse to beat in the feature race.

A five-time Group 1 champion, Lankan Rupee’s career has been plagued by injury in recent seasons, but the gelding appears to be in terrific condition this time and will be extremely difficult to beat under the conditions of the Spring Stakes.

Trialling well in the lead-up to his competitive return, the Redoute’s Choice gelding ran well to finish second behind formed sprinter Ability in the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) in less-than ideal conditions first-up and will only improve into this race.

Lankan Rupee currently dominates 2017 Spring Stakes betting at Ladbrokes.com.au and is the only horses currently available at odds of less-than $10; currently available at a quote of $1.70.

I Am Zelady is yet to herald much interest, but remains sole occupant of the second line at current Spring Stakes odds of $11.

Posting a career total of three wins and eight minors through twenty starts, the I Am Invincible mare was unable to produce much for trainer Joe Pride through an autumn and winter campaign and has been transferred to the care of Phillip Stokes ahead of her run in the Spring Stakes.

Having trialled well at Gawler on August 10th, I Am Zelady is drawn and weighted ideally and represents terrific value as an each-way chance in 2017 Spring Stakes betting markets.

Santa Ana Lane has so-far received the greatest market share of bets to win the Spring Stakes and has firmed onto the third line at generous $13 odds.

Plenty of hype has followed the career of Santa Ana Lane since he debuted in the spring of 2015 and while failing to live completely up to the billing, has still managed several impressive performances.

Taking a couple of runs to find form upon resuming this year, the Lope De Vega gelding flew home to comfortable win the Wagga Town Plate (1200m) on May 4th, before running well to finish fifth in the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) a fortnight later.

Last seen finishing fifth in a Flemington 1000m sprint on June 10th, Santa Ana Lane may require some early luck from an awkward draw, but he class should count for plenty amongst this Spring Stakes field.
