2020 Caulfield Stakes Betting: Russian Camelot Odds-On To Beat Five Rivals

All-in Ladbrokes Cox Plate favourite Russian Camelot has scared off the bulk of potential rivals in Saturday’s Caulfield Stakes 2020 field with the Guineas Day feature attracting just six runners this year.

Danny O’Brien’s gun Camelot four-year-old was ultra-impressive last start winning the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) at Caulfield second-up and returns to the track on Saturday as the odds-on favourite for the Group 1 $1 million Caulfield Stakes (2000m).

Registered as the Neds Stakes for sponsorship purposes in 2020, the weight-for-age clash serves as the ideal lead-up for Russian Camelot into the $5 million Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) at The Valley on October 24.

The in-form entire dominates markets for both races and looks to have plenty of improvement still in him having had just seven career starts for four wins.

He should eat-up the extra meters of the Caulfield Stakes having won the Group 1 SA Derby (2500m) as a three-year-old earlier in the year and jumps from barrier four with Damien Oliver retaining the ride.

“I’m very happy with him. It looks a nice test again for him and 2000 metres will be more to his advantage,” O’Brien told AAP.

Oliver is after his third win in the event since 2000 having won aboard the great Northerly (2001) and Whobegotyou (2009).

The latest horse to do the Underwood – Caulfield Stakes double meanwhile was Ocean Park (2012) and Russian Camelot is currently at a very short $1.55 to be the next.

Two of his rivals are also under $10 in the latest Caulfield Stakes odds online with Perth-trained mare Arcadia Queen ($4.50) and the now Chris Waller-trained dual Cox Plate placegetter Humidor ($5.50).

Grant & Alana Williams’ daughter of Pierro Arcadia Queen ran third to Russian Camelot in the Underwood, but looks unlikely to turn the tables here being yet to win over further than 1800m.

The other Underwood placegetter was Humidor running out of his skin again after winning first-up as an eight-year-old for the first time on debut for Waller in the Group 2 Feehan Stakes.

“Obviously Russian Camelot is a classy individual and you can’t take anything away from him. He will be the horse to beat again come Saturday,” Waller’s stable rep Jo Taylor told Racing Victoria this week.

“But Humidor is racing in good fashion. He may have been on the inferior part of the track on that particular day, but he certainly worked home really well and expect him to lay it down to Russian Camelot again.”

Gailo Chop (fourth) and Harbour Views (sixth) are also out of the Underwood Stakes and at long odds to get the better of their last start conqueror, while the Peter Gelagotis-trained Levendi is the only Caulfield Stakes rival not beaten home by Russian Camelot last time out.
