Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes Form Guide & Tips
1. Behemoth ($6) Bet @ Sportsbet
Behemoth is a quality type and it appears he’s only getting stronger. We have left him out of our top selections, but he’s an obvious trifecta and first four hope.
2. Probabeel (Best Bet – $5.50) Bet @ Sportsbet
The Kiwi returned to form with a fresh up win and she showed plenty of fight and determination.
It bodes well for future racing and drawing barrier two puts her right on the speed. Punters get odds worth taking.
3. Streets of Avalon ($51) Bet @ Sportsbet
Not running well enough this preparation to consider. He is a five-time winner at Caulfield, but we would back him in something much easier.
4. Dalasan ($51) Bet @ Sportsbet
Showed form at age-group level, but his form since has only been moderate. It would be a shock to see him turn back time and take this out.
5. Beau Rossa ($4.60) Bet @ Sportsbet
Enters as the favourite following a second placing behind Behemoth. We’re not sure we would have put him as favourite, but he demands respect.
Gets the inside draw and a nice weight, so consider.
6. Buffalo River ($18) Bet @ Sportsbet
Its best form comes fresh up, including two wins and three placings from six attempts.
Not an easy race to resume in, so the jurys out on Buffalo River for the time being.
7. Sierra Sue (Best Roughie – $14) Bet @ Sportsbet
She had no luck at Moonee Valley when working into the race nicely. She could have won it, which would have made it three on the bounce.
52.5kg on her back is a steal, so we’re more than happy with the double figure odds.
8. Groundswell ($23) Bet @ Sportsbet
Makes its own luck in front and it could lead them a merry chase. Talented on its day, but we don’t think Group 1 level racing is suitable.
9. Aysar ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet
Talented but he will likely struggle over this distance. Better over longer distances, so look for something more desireable.
10. Irish Flame ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet
A former Kiwi that should get run off his feet. This is a slick field and he should struggle to keep up with them.
11. Romancer ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet
Better suited to easier racing and we would be shocked to see him figuring in the finish. The $41 should be slightly higher to peak our interest.
12. Samizdat ($27) Bet @ Sportsbet
Comes from Perth with a good record and he has been backed in from an opening quote of $41. A win would surprise, but keep him safe at the price.
13. Amish Boy ($14) Bet @ Sportsbet
Only a one-race winner who continues to run well against tough opposition. Consistent, but we can’t have him in our selections at the odds.
14. Dice Roll ($23) Bet @ Sportsbet
Looked good winning three on the bounce before disappointing in his last two starts. He would need to improve on that form.
15. Regardsmaree ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet
Nothing wrong with her form and she has been working towards this race. Likes the track and distance, so we’re surprised by the $31 odds.
Include in first four bets.
16. Poland ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet
Unbeaten in two starts over 1400m, but that didn’t come against this company. Unsure if he’s a Group 1 horse.
17. I’m Thunderstruck ($8.50) Bet @ Sportsbet
Dropping in distance, but he is a progressive type that has big races in mind later this season.
Carrying 52kg with an in-form jockey in the saddle makes him tough to beat. He can’t be left out at the each-way odds.
