RACE SUMMARY

  • Taprit in 2017 was the last horse to get beaten in the Kentucky Derby, skip the Preakness and come in and win the Triple Crown 3rd leg the Belmont Stakes. 4 of the 10 starters in 2019 are looking to win the Belmont off a similar form profile; TACITUS, MASTER FENCER, TAX & SPINOFF.
  • Tonalist in 2014 was the last horse to win the Belmont Stakes fresh after skipping both the Derby & Preakness. JOEVIA, SIR WINSTON & INTREPID HEART fit those same criteria having been specifically targeted at the Belmont.
  • Preakness winner and Kentucky Derby hard luck story, WAR OF WILL is looking to become the 1st horse since Afleet Alex in 2005 to run in all 3 legs of the Triple Crown & complete the Preakness Stakes / Belmont Stakes double after tasting defeat in the Derby.
  • That leaves EVERFAST & BOURBON WAR. They’ve got to defy the most significant history if they’re to win the 2019 Belmont Stakes. They skipped the Derby & were beaten in the Preakness. Not in over 2 decades, since Touch Gold in 1997, has a horse profiled in such a manner in the lead-up and gone on the win the Belmont.

No more needs to be said about the controversy that unfolded in the Kentucky Derby surrounding War of Will and Maximum Security. But it could certainly argued that if not for the severe check on the turn at Churchill Downs, War of Will could be going for the Triple Crown this weekend. He faces a stiffer test here up to the mile and a half trip (2400m) and having drawn out as opposed to the Derby and Preakness, wherein both races he drew post 1 and got a cosy run just in behind the speed on both occasions. Having said that it is only a small field of 10 runners and he does have good tactical gate speed so he should be able to find himself getting a similarly cushy run again here in the Belmont if speed maps play out according to plan. Judging by his Preakness win where he was very strong through the line, he shouldn’t have any trouble staying the mile and 1/2, he looks a dour type who doesn’t have an explosive turn of foot but rather just keeps on grinding away at a solid clip. I think the trip will suit. He’s my clear top pick to win the 151st Belmont Stakes. I think he’s much underrated, I know it’s a big IF, but again I’ll say it, if not for being Skittled by Maximum Security in the Derby, we could be talking another Triple Crown in 2019 and he’d be starting 1/2 ($1.50), not 2/1 ($3.00).

Tacitus the early favourite ran on well in the Derby. But I wasn’t enthralled with the effort. He does have the freshness War of Will win be lacking but does he have Waar of Will’s tenacity?

Next best Bourbon War coming fresh into the Belmont since an average Florida Derby run was he was a beaten favourite behind Maximum Security, but that form does stack right up so a win certainly wouldn’t shock.

TIPS

1. 9-War of Will @ 2/1

2. 10-Tacitus @ 9/5

3. 5-Bourbon War @ 12/1

Melbourne Cup 2016 – Field, Odds and Horse updates

We are closing in on the 2016 Melbourne Cup with just days until the running of the race that stops a nation. View our list of horses that have been ruled out of the race and the horses that are still in contention.

 

Updates:

25/10/2016: Caulfield Cup runner up Scottish will not line-up in Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup field. Trainer Charlie Appleby said on Godolphin’s website he was happy to drop the horse back to 2000 metres given his consistent form over the distance in Britain this season.

25/10/2016: Godolphin runner Oceanographer has been a late nomination in Saturday’s Lexus Stakes field. Oceanographer sits 29th in the order of entry for the Melbourne Cup and on our prediction will not make the field unless he wins the Lexus hence why Godolphin have nominated.

25/10/2016: Trainer Charlie Appleby has stated today that it is likely that Scottish will bypass the Melbourne Cup and run in the Emirates Stakes. We have changed Scottish from Likely to run to now Unlikely to run.

24/10/2016: Second acceptances were taken today with 32 horses left in Melbourne Cup contention, the biggest surprise was that Tally remains in acceptances despite John O’Shea saying he will not run in the race posing the question thathe could be a starter. He is set to run in the Lexus Stakes so a decision is likely to be made after his Lexus run.

23/10/2016: A decision whether Hartnell will run in the Melbourne Cup will be made no later than Monday but it is more than likely he will line up in the race despite the 8L defeat in the Cox Plate. John O’Shea has stated all a long that Hartnell’s best chance of a major was in the Melbourne Cup and if the horse is sound he will race.

 

Outs:

Scottish: The Caulfield Cup runner up will bypass the Melbourne Cup and run in Saturday weeks Emirates Stakes.

Tally was originally said to be out of Melbourne Cup contention although he remained in the acceptances on Monday so we have moved him from Out to a Maybe. He will run in the Lexus Stakes and trainer John O’Shea is likely to wait until after the Lexus to make a decision on the Cup.

 

MAYBES:

Howard Be Thy Name: Darren Weir has said Howard Be Thy Name will head to the Bendigo Cup before a decision on whether he will run in the Melbourne Cup or not with connections saying he will need to win the race to press onto the Cup.

 

Unikely to Run:

TBA

 

Likely to Run:

Real Love: Despite a disappointing run in the Caulfield Cup Real Love remains in contention for the $6.5million dollar race with owner Bob Peters stating she will run in the Lexus Stakes with a run in the Melbourne Cup determined on how she goes but with the booking of William Pike today it is likely she will race.

 

Ins:

In list order we have Jameka, Alamndin, Big Orange, Our Ivanhowe, Curren Mirotic, Hartnell, Who Shot Thebarman Wicklow Brave, Bondi Beach, Exospheric, Grand Marshal, Gallante, Almoonqith, Sir John Hawkwood, Heartbreak City, Beautiful Romance Excess Knowledge, Assign, Secret Number, Grey Lion  with the Lexus Stakes winner being ballot exempt Qewy is currently on the fringe.

 

Odds:

26/10/2016: Following the removal of Scottish from markets Jameka has shortened from $6.00 into $5.50 whilst Heartbreak City has trimmed up from $14 into $13.

25/10/2016: Despite there being any major news both Hartnell and Jameka have shortened in betting today with Hartnell moving from $4.60 into $4.40 whilst Jameka has been $6.50 into $6.00.

Scottish has eased slightly from $15 out to $17 with news he is likely to run in the Emirates Stakes instead.

24/10/2016: Following second acceptances Big Orange has been the notable shortener firming from $16 into $13 as has Tom Melbourne who had his odds slashed from $301 into $51. Wicklow Brave has also shortened slightly from $18 into $17. Whilst Grand Marshal has drifted back out to $34.

Hartnell remains the Melbourne Cup favourite following his second to Winx in the Cox Plate however he has drifted slightly from $4.40 out to $4.80 whilst Jameka firmed from $7 into $6.50.

Grand Marshal was the biggest firmer in markets after Cox Plate day with his odds of $51 turned into $17.

Who Shot Thebarman was also a firmer in markets $26 into $21 as was Pentathlon $101-$51 with Gallante drifting $21 out to $35 as did Excess Knowledge $31-$51.

It’s a truly international field that’s been assembled for the 2016 Al Quoz Sprint @ Meydan Racecourse on Dubai World Cup night (26 March). It contains 5x local UAE horses, 2x Hong Kong gallopers, 2x United Kingdom sprinters and one representative each for Australia, USA, Ireland and Japan.


1.NAADIR (UAE)Sh Mohd bin Khalifa Al Maktoum
 20-1

TIMEFORM COMMENT: Not straightforward, but ran well in good company after being gelded last summer. Better than ever when second in 6f handicap last time, though work cut out in this company back at the minimum trip.

 

VIDEO COMMENT: Only an average beginner. Gets back in behind the speed and runs on. More a dour type than a horse with a brilliant turn of foot.

 

LAST 2 RUNS;

 

 

 

2.JUNGLE CAT (UAE)Godolphin 20-1

TIMEFORM COMMENT: Smart juvenile and though didn’t get going last year, proved better than ever when winning 6f handicap here in January. Beaten a nose by Fityaan in C&D Meydan Sprint 3 weeks ago, and not dismissed.

 

VIDEO COMMENT: On pacer who has a high cruising speed and isn’t afraid of a true staying test. Runs a very strong 5f.

LAST 2 RUNS;

 

3.BEL CANTO (JAPAN)North Hills Co Ltd 33-1

TIMEFORM COMMENT: Japanese mare, multiple winner at Group level on home soil, including twice last August (5f-6f). Comes here after 4 months off and this test should suit, but significant improvement required still.

 

VIDEO COMMENT: Bold on-pacer who jumps and runs, before trying to find a kick.

4.NOT LISTENIN’TOME (HK)Matthew Wong Leung Pak 7-1

TIMEFORM COMMENT: Taken form to new levels this season, 3-3 over 5f at Sha Tin, twice in Group 3’s and also handicap latest. Third to Peniaphobia in Hong Kong Sprint in December and big player with Ryan Moore booked.

 

VIDEO COMMENT: Travels strongly in the run, with a tendency to over-race. Generally settles just backward of mid-field with cover. Has a short sharp sprint, but it is very powerful.

LAST 2 RUNS;

 

5.PENIAPHOBIA (HK)Huang Kai Wen 13-2

TIMEFORM COMMENT: Runner-up to Sole Power in this last year and typical standing dish at top level in Hong Kong since, better than ever when winning Hong Kong Sprint in December (6f) and third in Group 1 there latest.

 

VIDEO COMMENT: On pace runner who likes to roll along. Able to find another gear even when leading at good clip.

LAST 2 RUNS;

 

 

6.ERTIJAAL (UAE)Sh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum 3-1

TIMEFORM COMMENT: Drop to 5f has worked the oracle this season, and has looked high-class when blitzing rivals in pair of C&D handicaps this Carnival. Plenty of competition for the lead, but entitled to major respect.

 

VIDEO COMMENT: Fast beginner who takes advantage of his gate speed and races on speed. Has a high cruising speed but ups the anti mid-race to get rivals off the bit and chasing. Able to sustain burst of speed right through the finishing wire.

 

LAST 2 RUNS;

 

7.SOLE POWER (IRE) Mrs Sabena Power 13-2

TIMEFORM COMMENT: Ended Dubai hoodoo when winning this last year, and arguably shaped best when narrow third to Fityaan/Jungle Cat in prep for this 3 weeks ago. Will get race run to suit and bold bid likely again.

 

VIDEO COMMENT: Get back run on type. Always reliant on luck by virtue of his race pattern. Takes plenty of riding but once he finds top gear possesses a powerful turn of foot.

LAST 2 RUNS;

 

 

8.GOLDREAM (UK)J Sargeant & Mrs J Morley  14-1

TIMEFORM COMMENT: Had fine 2015, won Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot and Prix De L’Abbaye at Longchamp. Ordinary return in C&D Group 3 won by Fityaan last time, but that should leave him spot on for this

 

VIDEO COMMENT: Good beginner who likes to race just in behind pace. Has a sustained sprint that allows rider to put the acid on his opponents early.

LAST 2 RUNS;

 

9.BUFFERING (AUS) Mrs V Heathcote, S Krslovic, C Moore et al 10-1

TIMEFORM COMMENT: High-class Australian sprinter over the years and not far off very best of late, won pair of Group 1’s in October/November and added valuable 6.5f event at Gold Coast latest. Can give a good account.

VIDEO COMMENT: Good beginner. High cruising speed that allows jockey Browne to put the pressure on rivals mid-race and have them off the bit chasing him. Runs a strong 6f. Finds best form when locked in a fight late.

LAST 2 RUNS;

 

10.MUTHMIR (UAE)Sh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum 8-1

TIMEFORM COMMENT: Won twice at Group 2 level last term and also third to Goldream in King’s Stand/L’Abbaye. Fair return last month and though Hanagan understandably prefers Ertijaal, this test ought to prove ideal.

VIDEO COMMENT: OK beginner. Races off speed. Possesses strong dash when let go in straight.

LAST 2 RUNS;

 

11.FITTYAAN (UAE)Sh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum 33-1

TIMEFORM COMMENT: Often not far away in Carnival handicaps over the years, but improved out of sight when narrowly getting the better of Jungle Cat/Sole Power in Group 3 last time. Hard to see him confirming the form.

VIDEO COMMENT: On speed galloper who only has one speed but gives all.

LAST 2 RUNS;

 

12.SIR MAXIMILLIAN (UK) Paul Wildes  33-1

TIMEFORM COMMENT: Group 3 Meydan Sprint winner last term, and after impressively landing handicap was a respectable fourth in same race latest. Will get race run to suit, but majority call is he’ll come up short.

VIDEO COMMENT: Jumps and settles well, usually about midfield. OK turn of foot, but not brilliant.

LAST 2 RUNS;

 

13.LADY SHIPMAN (USA)Ranlo Investments, LLC  16-1

TIMEFORM COMMENT: Most consistent filly, won 9 of 13 starts in US and placed all other occasions, notably neck runner-up in Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint in November. Easily landed prep last month and should go well.

VIDEO COMMENT: On pacer. Leads at good clip and gives all. No turn of foot.

RACE OVERVIEW

Plenty of speed engaged meaning it will be a strongly run race. Bar, Sole Power, all the chances are amongst those who will be making the speed. Thus it’ll likely come down to who’s the toughest at the end of 5f. The Australian horse Buffering is notorious for finding when under pressure and engaged in a drive to the line. He has form around Lankan Rupee, Black Caviar and Hay List. If he brings his ‘A’ game he’ll be the one they’ve got too beat.

2015 Melbourne Cup: Fame Game new Favourite after Caulfield Cup

Japanese raider Fame Game is the new top pick in the 2015 Melbourne Cup market (Betfair) after a terrific Cup trial in today’s Caulfield Cup won by dual Derby-winning New Zealander Mongolian Khan. 

Fame Game settled well back in the field from his inside post and had drifted back to the tail by the 600m, trapped behind a wall of horses on the fence. Zac Purton worked the Japanese galloper into the clear after straightening and once he got daylight the horse charged home impressively. Form suggested that Fame Game was always going to be better over 3200m and that bodes well for the great race. He’s firmed into $5.50 and is now the favourite for the 2015 Melbourne Cup. 

Caulfield Cup winner Mongolian Khan is $10.50 to become the 12th horse to complete the Cups double in 2015. 

  

Caulfield Cup runner-up, Trip to Paris, who winner of the prestigious Ascot Gold Cup earlier this year over 4000m was the run of the race for mine, clearly wanting more ground. He’s 2nd favourite for the Melbourne Cup at $8.20 Ed Dunlop will also have cult hero Red Cadeaux in the Melbourne Cup, with the three time cup runner up currently a $44 chance. 

Other fancies in the Melbourne Cup market include; 

Preferment $12.00

Max Dynamite $16.00

Who Shot Thebarman $18.00

Our Ivanhoe $20

Amralah $21.00

Snow Sky $22.00

Bondi Beach $24
