Four of the dozen sprinters in the Group 1 $1 million Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) field this year are under double-figures for the win through Ladbrokes.com.au.

State Solicitor is flying for local trainers Grant & Alana Williams and is tipped to make it four wins on the trot from barrier four paying $3.10 in the Winterbottom Stakes odds.

His biggest rival is the Lloyd Kennewell-trained mare from Adelaide Viddora ($4.20).

She is yet to win over further than 1100m, but Kennewell is confident the in-form daughter of I Am Invincible is set to peak and will run out the 1200m without a worry after two eye-catching Group 1 efforts at The Valley in Melbourne.

Earlier in the week we published our comprehensive 2017 Winterbottom Stakes Form Guide & Betting Preview, our insider tips on the classic based on the facts and stats uncovered there.

Our 2017 Winterbottom Stakes Trifecta Tip is #10 Whispering Brook from #8 State Solicitor and #1 Rock Magic

1st

#10 Whispering Brook ($12)

Going an upset and tipping the early market mover Whispering Brook to become the first double-figure Winterbottom Stakes winner since 2010. She hasn’t won a race since the Group 3 WA Sires’ produce Stakes (1400m) in April of 2016 when in flying form, but she’s been competitive in plenty since including her third in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) in Melbourne as a three-year-old in the spring of 2016. She has had five runs back in W.A. this year and looks on the improve. The sixth in the Colonel Reeves saw her under a length beaten and she comes back from 57.5kg to 56.5kg at WFA. Jason Brown aboard is a big plus and barrier eight has produced more winners than any other gate in this race over the past 30 years. She’s get a strong Ascot strike rate (8:4-0-1) and can surprise at a price if she gets to the front.

2nd

#8 State Solicitor ($3.10)

Hard-to-beat favourite who could just come out and win after the impressive Group 3 victory when caught in traffic but still too good. Ran a length away when unplaced after a horror run in the race 12 months ago and is a bigger danger here looking to be the sixth favourite in eight years to win. Jockey William Pike stays on and is a dual winning hoop in this race, but when it held Group 2 status. Four of the past six winners won their lead-up so the Colonel Reeves Stakes success last time out bodes well for State Solicitor, out to do the double for the first time since 2012.

3rd

#1 Rock Magic ($6)

Plenty of boxes ticked by last year’s third placegetter. Plenty of Winterbottom winners have come off a Flemington run and the Darley Classic effort from this veteran at the end of a gutsy spring prep in Melbourne was good. He’s taken on the best sprinters and just needs to show up once more back home here.
