2016 PB Lawrence Stakes Tips and Betting Preview

Fourteen runners remain in contention for Saturday’s Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield Racecourse; a race that offers punters particularly good value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

The Darren Weir-trained Mahuta remains an outright $4.20 favourite in 2016 PB Lawrence Stakes betting markets with online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of Suavito ($4.80) and Lord Of The Sky ($6).

Will Mahuta justify favouritism and win the 2016 PB Lawrence Stakes, or will one of his talented rivals post an upset?

1st

Suavito ($4.80)

Multiple Group 1 winner Suavito is a proven first-up performer, is drawn ideally in barrier 7 and represents terrific value at 2016 PB Lawrence Stakes odds of $4.80 for success. The stable star for Nigel Blackiston, Suavito returned to racing this year for an impressive win in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield before progressing to third in her defence of the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) on February 27th most notably. While failing to make anything in less-than ideal conditions at her next start, the Thorn Park mare will carry only 57kgs as a mare and has been confirmed to be partnered by Michael Walker.

2nd

The Cleaner ($9)

The Cleaner is first-up at Caulfield on Saturday, was unlucky not to win the race in 2015 and is simply over the PB Lawrence Stakes odds at his current quote of $9 or $2.95 to finish in the first three. Claiming nineteen wins and sixteen minors through fifty-four career starts, the Savoire Vivre gelding progressed to success in the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) following last year’s PB Lawrence, before he ran third in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) and a credible seventh in his major target; the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m). The Cleaner has trialled well in the lead-up to his competitive return and should have no issue finding the fore of the field from barrier 2.

3rd

Mahuta ($4.20)

Darren Weir is confident that Mahuta will strip fitter from his run in the PB Lawrence Stakes, and believes the horse will be back to his best for the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) in a fortnight. A standout through spring and summer, the Flying Spur gelding posted consecutive wins in the Listed Gothic Stakes (1400m), Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) and Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m). Resuming from a freshen-up for success in the Gold Coast Magic Millions 3.y.o Guineas (1400m), Mahuta continued his winning form through the Group 2 Autumn Stakes (1400m) but has clearly has enough by the time he finished fourteenth in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m). Having run third in the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) first-up a fortnight ago, Mahuta will be partnered by Brad Rawiller from barrier 5 on Saturday.
