Coolmore Stud Stakes 2015 Betting: Exosphere Odds-On

This Saturday in Melbourne on Victoria Derby Day the classy John O’Shea-trained Sydney raider Exosphere will look to become the seventh favourite in the past decade to salute for the punters in the 2015 Coolmore Stud Stakes.

Betting at Ladbrokes.com.au, who are running Best Tote or SP + 20% across the Flemington race card this Saturday, is now open on the $500,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) where Golden Rose winner Exosphere is odds-on at $1.50.

Drawn a treat in barrier two for James McDonald, the flying Lonhro colt backed up from his Group 1 win to take out the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) last start at an odds-on price in the race that has produced the past two Coolmore Stud Stakes winners.

The Chris Waller-trained duo of Zoustar (2013) and Brazen Beau (2014) both competed the same Roman Consul Stakes – Coolmore Stud Stakes double Exosphere is at the short price to win in a gate that last produced a winner with Star Witness (2010) five years ago.

Lock in Best Tote or SP + 20% on all Flemington races on Saturday including the Coolmore Stud Stakes only at Ladbrokes!

There are no other single figure chances in the current Coolmore Stud Stakes odds to beat the deserving favourite despite this being Exosphere’s first look at the famous Flemington straight.

If the star colt handles the straight course he’ll be far too hard to run down, but if he proves vulnerable at Flemington the bookies suggest the two to capitalise and snare the upset are $11 co-second favourites Keen Array and Mogador.

Mogador is also prepared by O’Shea and is taking on his superstar stablemate from barrier seven with Craig Williams, who won the 1997 Coolmore Stud Stakes aboard Show No Emotion, in the saddle.

Another Lonhro colt, Mogador has won two of his five starts to date and was last seen crossing just under a half-length away second in the Listed Blue Sapphire Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on October 14.

He should appreciate the straight track and be even closer in the finish for his step up to Group 1 company than he was in the Blue Sapphire, the winner of which was Keen Array who he’ll be out to turn the tables on in the Coolmore Stud Stakes.

Damian Lane retains the ride on the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained son of Bel Esprit, Keen Array shooting for a third win from as many starts on the trot over the 1200m.

The distance specialist is looking to become the fourth Coolmore Stud Stakes winner in five years to come off a last start win and jumps from a nice mid field barrier five draw that Gold Edition (2006) jumped from to win nine years ago.

The next best in Coolmore Stud Stakes betting this season are market mover Counterattack ($15) for dual defending trainer Waller and Hellbent ($16).

Counterattack is drawn wide in barrier 11, but the past two Waller-trained winners of the race both jumped from double-digits with Zoustar (10) and Brazen Beau (15) overcoming the wide draws in the sprint.

The Redoute’s Choice colt has won two of his past three starts ahead of his Melbourne debut including the Listed Brian Crowley Stakes (1200m) last time out.

Hellbent meanwhile represents Goulburn’s Kurt Goldman and also comes out of the same Randwick lead-up from October 17 when third behind Counterattack and runner-up Spill The Beans.

Waller’s other chance of a hat-trick of wins in the classic Japonisme meanwhile pays $20 for the upset with Glyn Schofield aboard in barrier three, the Choisir gelding coming off a first-up third to Exosphere in the Roman Consul.
