Due to run as Caulfield Race 2 at 1:05pm (AEST), this year’s $120,000 Listed italktravel Harry White Classic (2400m) has attracted a final field of just eight stayers.

Heading the current Harry White Classic odds at Ladbrokes.com.au is Darren Weir’s perennial placegetter Black Tomahawk who the patient punters are putting their trust in again.

Drawn in gate three with Michael Dee booked for the ride, the Seul Amour seven-year-old has run second in his past four starts on the trot going back to July.

He has started at the top end of the markets in all of them including jumping the short-priced favourite when runner-up to Refectory over 2500m at Moonee Valley on August 20.

His latest run was at Flemington on September 10 when he looked a winning chance the whole way down the straight, but never pushed past Lucques crossing second as the favourite once again.

He gets in on the minimum in the Harry White Classic weights and faces a small field over a good distance and pays $4.20 to shrug his runners-up status and to back-to-back after winning the race 12 months ago.

It is an open Harry White Classic betting market this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival with all but two of the other runners also at single-figures including early market mover The Bandit ($5.50 into $5).

Jockey Craig Williams has been aboard Black Tomahawk for his past three starts but jumps off in favour of the ride on the John Sadler-trained Japanese import The Bandit this weekend.

A lightly-raced Empire Maker five-year-old, the stallion has won two of his nine career runs including one run down under over 1800m at Sandown back in late March.

He has finished top four in three of his four subsequent starts, including the devastatingly close second when a nose off Glorious Sinndar in the Listed Andrew Ramsden Stakes (3200m) over the famous two miles at Flemington in May.

His latest run was a first-up fourth beaten only 1.35 lengths as a $41 roughie over 1514m at Moonee Valley three weeks ago.

He will eat up the extra metres this weekend as he jumps up notably in distance, dropping from 60kg that run to just 54kg on Saturday.

Equal $5.50 third favourites are the 60kg top weight Signoff also from the Melbourne Cup winning stables of Weir and the Robert Hickmott-trained Almandin carrying 55kg from barrier two.

Authorized seven-year-old Signoff has finished well back in his two runs this time in, the latest a second last when 13th to Awesome Rock in the Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) on September 3.

Fourth in the 2014 Melbourne Cup behind Protectionist, Signoff is tipped to improve sharply stepping out over the mile and a half this weekend in his first run over these sort of metres since his Group 3 Lord Reims Stakes (2600m) win in Adelaide on March 5.

Almandin meanwhile chases his first win down under, the European import and Group 2 winner over 2200m overseas coming off three unplaced Melbourne runs over less metres.

The other standout acceptors are Hickmott’s other runner Assign ($6) after his first win since a two length success in the Listed Mornington Cup Prelude (2000m) at the track in late February and O’Lonera ($7.50 for Cranbourne trainer Cindy Alderson.
