2017 Villiers Stakes Betting Update: Money For Crack Me Up

Interlocuter remains the favourite in Villiers Stakes 2017 betting in Sydney on the weekend but there has also been a flood of money coming in for early market mover Crack Me Up.

Running as Randwick Race 7 at 4:20pm (AEDT) on Saturday afternoon, the Group 2 $250,000 Inglis Villiers Stakes (1600m) offers the winner a 2018 Doncaster Mile ballot exemption.

In-line for the guaranteed run in the lucrative autumn feature next April at $3.50 is the easing top fancy in the Villiers Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au is the Godolphin-raced Interlocuter, the five-year-old chasing a fourth win on the trot.

The Medaglia D’Oro entire was last seen saluting for the punters as the odds-on favourite in the $100,000 November Topaz (1900m) and trainer James Cummings is quietly confident the freshen-up will see Interlocuter continue the winning streak back at a mile in his Group 2 test on the weekend.

One of the notable dangers and the early Villiers Stakes market mover at $7 and firming is the Brisbane visitor Crack Me Up.

Drawn a treat in gate two with Jason Collett to ride the four-year-old son of Mossman, Crack Me Up races on successive Saturdays after his close fourth as the beaten favourite in last weekend’s Listed Brisbane Handicap (1600m) at Doomben.

He comes back two kilos in weight for his Sydney debut and presents rock hard fit for the challenge.

Also steady at single-figures paying $5.50 to break his maiden status down under is the Chris Waller-trained Irish import Mister Sea Wolf.

The six-year-old miler debuted in Australia on December 2 in Rosehill’s Group 3 Festival Stakes (1500m) finishing a very close second behind Testashadow.

Fitter for the run and better suited to the extra distance of the rematch in the Villiers Stakes, Mister Sea Wolf and jockey Kerrin McEvoy only need to overcome the wide barrier (13 into 12) draw to be competitive again.

The last of the single-figure runners at $8 and drawn one closer to the fence (12 into 11) is Cabeza De Vaca, one of two in the Villiers Stakes field for Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott.

A six-year-old son of Northern Meteor, Cabeza De Vaca extended his winning streak to five straight in the November Handicap (1400m) last month before things went amiss with his eighth in the Festival Stakes.

There is money for the gelding to atone with a better run on the weekend and with jockey Josh Parr coming back aboard in place of apprentice Rachel King.

For punters seeking a bit of value in a double-figure chance this Villiers Stakes Day, the likes of Festival Stakes third placegetter Red Excitement ($13) who looks back to his best form and even the Festival Stakes winner Testashadow ($18) present as livewire hopes.
