Eleven sprinters have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s 2015 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield Racecourse; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Lord Of The Sky continues to drift in 2015 Bletchingly Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au but remains outright $3.10 favourite ahead of Angels Beach ($4.60), Smokin’ Joey and Petrology; currently sharing the third line at a quote of $6.50 each.
Will Lord Of The Sky justify favouritism and win the 2015 Bletchingly Stakes or will one of his talented rivals deliver another upset?
Talented three-year-old Petrology has reportedly taken huge benefit from his time in the paddock and while needing some luck in running from barrier 10, has been confirmed to be partnered by champion hoop Damien Oliver and offers exceptional value for money at current Bletchingly Stakes odds. Closing his 2014 campaign with consecutive wins in the Listed TV Stakes (1800m) and Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m), the Fastnet Rock colt was unable to make much of a competitive impact through three autumn starts but should be perfectly suited to the conditions of the 2015 Bletchingly Stakes.
Nadeem Lass ($26)
Posting three wins and an incredible 16 minors through 37 career starts so far, Nadeem Lass has been charged with carrying a very manageable 56.5kgs, will be partnered by regular hoop Matthew Allen and undoubtedly offers punters the best value for money in 2015 Bletchingly Stakes betting markets. Running third in the Group 3 Proud Miss Stakes (1200m) on May 16th, the Nadeem mare placed second in her next two starts before producing a strong turn of foot to overcome a late block and finish a credible fifth in the Listed All Victorian Sprint Final (1200m) a fortnight ago.
Smokin’ Joey ($6.50)
Popular veteran Smokin’ Joey returned for a brief freshen-up following his success in the Listed Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) on June 13th, should fly first-up and his experience should count for a lot in the Bletchingly Stakes. A Group 1 winner over the distance, the son of Encosta De Lago returned this year for a credible fourth in the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m); taking out the Group 3 Carlyon Cup (1600m) at his next start before running a close second to Suavito in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) most notably on February 28th.
