Winterbottom Stakes Form Guide & Tips


1. Trekking (Best Bet – $2.25) Bet @ Sportsbet

Trekking comes into this race following a placing behind Hey Doc at Group 1 level. Prior to that he finished fourth in The Everest, so he’s our clear top pick.

Having William Pike in the saddle is another positive and despite drawing wide, he only needs a fraction of luck to win.

2. Rock Magic (Best Roughie – $20) Bet @ Sportsbet

Punters get value odds with Rock Magic, which placed in this race last year. He might be an 11-year-old, but he continues to run well on the big stage.

His record at Ascot speaks volumes and we wouldn’t leave him out at the odds.

3. Malibu Style ($101) Bet @ Sportsbet

Triple-figure odds for this runner, which is well past his best. His two efforts this campaign have been poor, so leave him out of calculations.

4. Valour Road ($14) Bet @ Sportsbet

The son of Frost Giant is mixing his form, which included a win two starts back at Ascot. He faded late last start, but expect something better on Saturday.

5. Durendal ($101) Bet @ Sportsbet

Yet to show anything this season and the odds reflect that. It gets the inside draw, but that’s where the positives end.

6. Vital Silver ($20) Bet @ Sportsbet

Talented enough to beat a field of this quality. Solid efforts since resuming this season and with the right run in transit, he could figure in the finish.

The grey is a first-four chance.

7. Red Can Man ($18) Bet @ Sportsbet

It wasn’t a bad run from Red Can Man last start, but dropping back to the sprinting distance won’t help his chances.

He opened at $26, which was a value price, but the $18 is a touch too short.

8. Stageman ($12) Bet @ Sportsbet

Capable enough to win at Group 1 level and he has the Adam Durrant polish. Recent form bodes well, including a second placing behind Celebrity Queen.

Double-figure odds are available with bookmakers, and he’s a first-four hope.

10. Laverrod ($71) Bet @ Sportsbet

Good enough to win and place this campaign, but the four-year-old doesn’t strike us as a Group 1 winner.

11. Mankind ($201) Bet @ Sportsbet

Huge odds available for the out-of-form runner. Barrier 16 won’t help his chances and it would pay to steer clear.

12. Indian Pacific ($8) Bet @ Sportsbet

A nice type in the making that owns six wins and three placings from nine starts. The son of Zoustar was third behind Celebrity Queen last start, and that form looks good.

$8 is on the shorter side of value, but we wouldn’t be overlooking his chances of success.

13. Elite Street ($16) Bet @ Sportsbet

Elite Street is an underrated type that has won four of his last five starts. He owns a nice turn-of-foot, but rising in grade is the worry.

We prefer to see what he does against this level of opposition before backing him with confidence.

14. Flirtini ($27) Bet @ Sportsbet

Hasn’t fired at her last two starts, so it’s tough to get any confidence from those runs. A three-time winner at Ascot, but we can’t have her in selections.

15. Essential Spice ($61) Bet @ Sportsbet

Consistent enough to be a threat, but she should find some of these much too tough.

16. Celebrity Queen (Best Each Way – $8) Bet @ Sportsbet

Brings in excellent form lines and the four-year-old mare is in the right hands. She owns six wins from 10 starts, including an impressive victory at Ascot last start.

Barrier 10 could make it tricky, but expect her to settle back and hit the line with purpose.

17. Condor Heroes ($101) Bet @ Sportsbet

Talented on his day but this shouldn’t be his day.
