Russian Revolution Heads Early Vain Stakes 2016 Odds

The Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Russian Revolution has opened the ante-post favourite to win his Melbourne debut on Saturday in the 2016 Vain Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse.

The promising Snitzel colt has won both of his career starts to date in Sydney, the latest a two length victory over 1200m at Randwick from June 25.

Winner of a subsequent hit-out over 1050m at the same track, Russian Revolution was originally earmarked to return for his three-year-old debut at Rosehill Gardens in Saturday’s Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m).

His star Golden Slipper winning stablemate Capitalist though was scratched from a return last weekend in the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m) due to a Heavy-rated track and instead kicks things off in the San Domenico.

Wanting to avoid a clash between the two, who are both heading towards Rosehill’s Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) on September 10, Team Snowden will send Russian Revolution south for the $150,000 Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) instead.

The bookies are taking no chances with the undefeated youngster who sits top of the pre-field Vain Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $3 to keep his flawless record in check in his first run outside of Sydney and in stakes’ company.

Hot on Russian Revolution’s heels in the all-in Vain Stakes betting markets at $4.40 is the also unbeaten Artie Dee Two.

Melbourne Cup winning horseman Darren Weir saddles-up the Artie Schiller colt who is also two-from-two to date with wins over 1200m at Geelong and Moonee Valley during June.

A further three of the original 13 Vain Stakes nominations, entries extended by Racing Victoria until Tuesday morning, also sit under $10 for the win.

The John O’Shea-trained Lonhro colt Radcliffe and local Clinton McDonald-trained Sebring colt Revolving Door are at $7.50 for the win, narrowly ahead of Hardham ($8.50).

Revolving Door ran fourth on debut to subsequent Blue Diamond Stakes runner-up Flying Artie in the Prelude in mid-February before a win over 1300m at Sandown-Hillside a fortnight later.

He was last seen running third to Seaburge, who was second to him the run before at Sandown, in Flemington’s Group 2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) in March so has class.

The Mick Price-trained Hardham meanwhile is a stablemate of Flying Artie and the Blue Diamond Stakes winner Extreme Choice, down to resume at Moonee Valley in next month’s Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m).

The Redoute’s Choice colt has had one run so far when winning over 1200m at Pakenham on March 3 and races for the first time since on Saturday.

Other notable hopes include Lindsay Park’s Group 3 performed Dam Ready ($10) and his consistent stakes-placed stablemate Highland Beat ($10), while the value lies in the stable’s Gold Ingot winner at the track from April Valliano ($11).
