Due to jump at 4:58pm (QLD time) as Doomben Race 9 on the full 10 race program in the Sunshine State on Saturday, this year’s $175,000 Listed Treasury Casino & Hotel Bernborough Handicap (1615m) features a 14 starter field.

Leading the latest Bernborough Handicap odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, who are offering Best Tote or SP + 20% on the race this weekend, at $4.80 is the Robert Heathcote-trained son of Mossman Hopfgarten.

Jumping from gate seven with Craig Williams retaining the ride, the five-year-old gelding comes off a devastatingly close second in the Listed Brisbane Handicap (1640m) where he missed the jump from a wide barrier 12 of 14 draw only to go down just a short half-head to equal favourite in Saturday’s rematch Traveston Girl.

The flying Tony Gollan-trained mare won not on the Brisbane Handicap but also the first leg of the Brisbane Summer Racing Series in the Recognition Stakes and shoots for the successful Triple Crown hat-trick this weekend.

Drawn in gate eight with Tegan Harrison retaining the ride, Gollan’s four-year-old daughter of Flying Spur originally occupied the second line of Bernborough Handicap betting at $5 before being backed into co-favouritism at $4.80.

The other top fancies for the final leg of the series are market mover Worthy Cause ($6 into $5) who comes off some exciting Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival form and the Gai Waterhouse-trained Kiwi expat Role Model ($6) drawn a treat in gate two with Glen Boss booked for the ride.

So will the best in the markets get the job done on Saturday or is there an upset Bernborough Handicap result on the cards from the likes of the John Sargent-trained Magic Millions Cup-bound More Than Ready gelding Centre Pivot ($8.50) who is soon to be prepared by former champion hoop Peter Robol or even Heathcote’s other runner Lordag ($15) stepping up in class this weekend?

Our 2015 Bernborough Handicap Trifecta Tip is #2 Worthy Cause from #4 Traveston Girl and #5 Shotover River

1st

#2 Worthy Cause ($5)

Good price on the John Zielke-trained Sunshine Coast galloper who is drawn ideally in barrier three with apprentice Luke Dittman retaining the ride on the four-year-old son of Choisir. The stallion comes off a string of nice spring runs in Victoria including the Group 3 Eclipse Stakes (1800m) third to Casino Dancer. He is back to a mile at a track he has good form at (7-2-2-0) and has been freshened up since the Melbourne visit, winning a trial at home over 1270m this week by nearly three lengths. Back in class, back in Brisbane, has a good gate and looks fresh and fit.

2nd

#4 Traveston Girl ($4.80)

The money is coming for the now co-favourite who is thriving this Brisbane Sprint Series coming off the winning Recognition Stakes – Brisbane Handicap double. Harrison stays on and while there wasn’t much in the finish last time out, she still got the job done to go back-to-back at the same track and distance as this weekend. Test is staying in form and handling the rise from 54kg to 55.5kg, but she is flying and has class so could be hard to beat again.

3rd

#5 Shotover River ($16)

Juicy price for the Recognition Stakes and Brisbane Handicap placegetter who has a wide alley (13 of 14), but time to overcome the gate. This local Savabeel six-year-old has a jockey change but has been in really nice form with plenty of winning form at Doomben (16-4-4-3). Was second two back and third last start to Traveston Girl in both but is at silly odds here for another top three run, which he is more than capable of.

Now is the time to discover the benefits of betting online with Ladbrokes.com.au – the only bookie down under offering a juicy Best Tote or SP + 20% on the Bernborough Handicap in Brisbane on Saturday!
