Stradbroke Handicap Form Guide & Tips
1. Mr Quickie (Best Each Way – $10) Bet @ Sportsbet
Mr Quickie has a class edge on this field and he got back to his best two back when winning at Caulfield.
He ran into So Si Bon last start but he didn’t get the run to suit and he should be stronger for the added fitness.
$10 is a value price with James McDonald riding.
2. Savatoxl ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet
Gritty performance to win back-to-back races in Adelaide. Solid when sixth last start and it makes its own luck in front.
Better going the other way around, but consider.
3. Tofane ($11) Bet @ Sportsbet
Better for two runs back from a spell and that was a tidy second placing last start. Confidently backed at value odds, so don’t discount.
4. Imaging ($17) Bet @ Sportsbet
His last two efforts have been poor and his best days could be behind him. Drawing wide isn’t ideal and the $17 looks too short.
5. Olmedo ($91) Bet @ Sportsbet
Big odds and rightfully so. He scored a good win two back but was safely held against easier opposition last start.
$91 is a fair price.
6. So Si Bon ($51) Bet @ Sportsbet
An enigmatic type that got the better of Mr Quickie two back. He followed it with a poor effort, so punters never know what to expect.
We don’t either, so we’re prepared to leave him out on that basis.
7. Wild Planet ($7) Bet @ Sportsbet
A speedy type that looked good running second behind Eduardo. That’s a slick performance in the Doomben 10,000 and he likes this distance.
Include Wild Planet in exotics.
8. Niccanova ($17) Bet @ Sportsbet
Followed up a win with a poor performance last start. He can be tough to follow but his odds have been slashed from $21.
It could to watch for late betting moves with Niccanova.
9. I Am Superman ($27) Bet @ Sportsbet
A winner two back and he’s another runner that wasn’t able to back it up with anything last start.
54kg should help but he’s too inconsistent to include in our bets.
10. Victorem (Best Roughie – $16) Bet @ Sportsbet
Taking his sweet time to get back to winning form. However, we’re sticking with him. He is the type that strikes when least expected and $16 is a good price.
He is a two-time winner at Eagle Farm and he can’t be discounted.
11. Vega One (Best Bet – $6.50) Bet @ Sportsbet
A terrific winner of the Kingsford-Smith Cup last start. He showed a devastating turn-of-foot and repeat sees him winning.
53kg on the back helps and although his racing pattern relies on luck, he must be tough to hold out and punters get odds worth taking.
12. The Harrovian ($9.50) Bet @ Sportsbet
Strung wins together earlier this preparation before taking on some tough fields. This isn’t easier, but respect his chances.
Unbeaten in two starts at Eagle Farm and that form is good enough.
13. Signore Fox ($27) Bet @ Sportsbet
A winner fresh up and he has been solid in three subsequent runs. A past winner on the track and carrying 52kg is ideal.
He enters first-four calculations.
14. Emerald Kingdom ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet
Went out quickly last start and never gave them a look-in. Good enough to repeat the dose, but punters get generous odds.
Harder here, but similar tactics could work.
16. Subpoenaed ($14) Bet @ Sportsbet
Gets back in the run and saves itself for one last one. Always a danger and it has been respected in betting markets.
Consider at the price.
17. Master Jamie ($151) Bet @ Sportsbet
Big odds and we can’t see him figuring in the finish.
18. Apache Chase ($12) Bet @ Sportsbet
Defeated the talented Ayrton last start and that win can’t be overlooked. It was a solid performance and the dream could come true for Desleigh Forster.
49.5kg on the back helps.
19. Outback Barbie ($46) Bet @ Sportsbet
Scored an overdue win two back but she looks held at this level.
20. Amish Boy ($23) Bet @ Sportsbet
Always around the mark but he owns only one win. Prefer to see him in something much easier.
21. Blazejowski ($126) Bet @ Sportsbet
Unlikely to figure in the finish at the odds.
