Calculated ran a strong second behind Siege Of Quebec at his last start and remains an outright $3.60 favourite in 2017 Up And Coming Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Calculated failed to produce much when he debuted for sixth in a Rosehill 1100m in February, but he resumed this time for a smart win in the TAB Maiden (1200m) at Canterbury on July 5th.

Trapeze Artist was a strong and consistent performer through autumn and offers punters the best value for money in Up And Coming Stakes betting markets at current $5.50 odds.

Debuting for a comfortable win at Newcastle on February 4th, the Snitzel colt placed fourth in the Chris Toogood Handicap (1200m) on February 15th before taking out the Group 3 Black Opal Stakes (1200m) by three lengths as a $31 chance on March 5th.

Running a credible sixth in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m), Trapeze Artist was last seen running a commendable third in the Group 1 Inglis Sires’ (1400m) on Day 1 of The Championships.

Trapeze Artist has trialled well in the lead-up to the race and has drawn ideally into the Up And Coming Stakes field in barrier 6.

Sanctioned is one of two runners for Godolphin in the Up And Coming Stakes field and he has continued to receive steady support in betting markets; firming onto the third line at current $6 odds.

Debuting for third in a Warwick Farm 1100m sprint on March 8th, the Teofilo colt was last seen winning the Variety Children’s Charity Maiden (1200m) on March 29th by close to two lengths.

While he is yet to step out in black type company, Sanctioned has conditions to suit in the Up And Coming Stakes and has drawn ideally into this field.

Gold Standard has shown plenty of ability in his short career so far and is the current Up And Coming Stakes betting market mover; having firmed into $8 after opening at an $11 quote.
