2014 Kensington Stakes Betting Tips

The feature race at Flemington this weekend is the Listed Kensington Stakes (1000m), which will be run as the sixth event of the day down the famous Flemington straight.

The 2014 Kensington Stakes has not drawn the strongest field, but should still be a very interesting race; with a number of progressive gallopers taking on horses that have proven form at Listed level.

Kaiser Sun has been one of the best backed runners racing anywhere in the country tomorrow and co-trainers Simon Zahra and Matthew Ellerton are confident that he can record his maiden win at Listed level.

Can Kaiser Sun score a win for favourite backers or will a more proven performer take out the $120,000 race?

1st

Kaiser Sun ($3.10)

The progressive gelding has looked the goods since returning from the spelling paddock; recording impressive wins in the Lanec Services Handicap (1000m) at Flemington on December 14 and the Flemington 1840-2014 Handicap (1000m) at the same venue on New Year’s Day. This is a step-up in class for the Danerich gelding, but this is not the strongest Listed field that you will see and connections believe he has the talent to be competitive at Group level.

2nd

First Command ($6)

First Command has won the past two edition of the Kensington Stakes and he can’t be ruled out in the 2014 edition of the race. The Commands gelding has not been seen at the races since he finished seventh behind equine superstar Black Caviar in the Group 1 Lightning Stakes (1000m) on February 16 in 2013, but has an excellent first-up record. The eight-year-old has shown no signs of slowing down and should give another good account for himself this weekend.

3rd

Don’t Get Excited ($6)

Don’t Get Excited is the wildcard in the Kensington Stales and is excellent value if he can return to the form that he showed at the start of what has been a lengthy campaign. The Elvstroem gelding started his campaign with four straight victories and, after a couple of defeats, returned to the winners stall in the National Jockeys’ Trust Handicap (1200m) but failed to fire in the Listed Christmas Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on Boxing Day. There are concerns that Don’t Get Excited may have reached the end of his campaign, but trainer Stephen Theodore is confident that he will perform well.
