2017 Stutt Stakes Tips

  • 1st: #4 Masculino
  • 2nd: #1 The Mission
  • 3rd: #2 Azazel

Masculino comes back-to-back wins and looks a big hope of making it three on the trot this time in after the all-the-way victory over 1509m here on September 9. Will handle the mile and gets the run of the race from barrier two. The Mission is a Group 1 winner over the mile in Sydney during the autumn and is out to frank that form, returning to his best. Opened at $16 and has been smashed into single-figures so there’s money on him that could be worth following. Out to atone for the second last in the Golden Rose last weekend, but can be forgiven. Azazel is the danger coming off a close seventh behind Catchy in the Danehill Stakes, only 2.35 lengths beaten and will enjoy returning to Moonee Valley.
