Almandin

Due to jump at 2:35pm (AEDT) as Flemington Race 5 on the bumper nine-race card, this year’s $300,000 Group 3 The Bart Cummings (2500m) features a 12 starter field of Spring Cup hopes.

The current The Bart Cummings odds at Ladbrokes.com.au are led by firm favourite Almandin ($2.45) jumping from an ideal barrier five draw with Damien Oliver booked to ride the Robert Hickmott-trained seven-year-old.

He comes off a win only last Saturday at Caulfield in the Listed Harry White Classic (2400m) by two lengths over the mile and a half and is well-weighted again getting in on the same 55kg.

The dangers looking at The Bart Cummings betting markets are the fellow Lloyd Williams-owned import Aloft ($5.50) having just his second run down under and last start winner over the track / distance Lucques ($7.50) drawn in barriers six and 10 respectively.

So will the top fancies get the job done for the punters or is there value tipping an upset The Bart Cummings result from a value runner such as the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Excess Knowledge ($10) or the top weight Almoonqith ($12)?

1st

#3 Almandin ($2.45)

Hard to bet against the favourite here who chases back-to-back wins on the eight day turnaround. He proved he could handle these meters and more with the two length win last time out and has 55kg and Oliver in the saddle here so nothing to say he won’t get the job done again, albeit at the shorter price.

2nd

#1 Almoonqith ($12)

Plenty of livewire place chances and this Lindsay Park-trained stallion gives the kilos away (58kg), but think he has enough class to overcome and improve on the Naturalism Stakes 14th when getting back out over more metres. Won the Geelong Cup (2400m) – Sandown Cup (3200m) double last spring and can improve sharply third-up over this distance.

3rd

#2 Excess Knowledge ($10)

The last start eighth in the Naturalism was better than it looked on paper from this Monsun seven-year-old who has winning form at this distance, was only 3 lengths off the Melbourne Cup winner last spring for seventh on the back of the Lexus Stakes victory. Flemington suits and if he is up on the speed can surprise.
