Bonus Bet – Emirates Stakes

Written by Motts on November 6 2014

We’re leaving the Oaks alone today to focus on the Stakes. Give me your 3 best runners in the race and I’ll use your selections to make a call on a trifecta.

I’ll be in Sydney this weekend but will be watching the racing in the pub somewhere over there with Burls and another new member of the Punters Club, Hooter (he actually joined before we kicked off PC5 but it was at a long, boozy lunch and I’d forgotten. Yiorgakis was coincidentally at the same lunch).

Quoted odds were the Fixed odds on Sportingbet as at 10am Thursday. The poll expires at midday on Saturday. I’ll publish in Comments what we’re on at some point before the race on Saturday afternoon.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

  1. Here’s Gator’s Mail on the Stakes:

    Race 7 – G1 Emirates Stks – 1600m

    5 – HOOKED – Wide on mad speed in Epsom yet somehow held 3rd (sub 47-secs 1st-800m!) then chased another hot speed (sub 47-secs 1st-800m again) MV at WFA and surged clear long way out, but kept going. He was .2 off the course record. Back to Hcp. well drawn
    9 – LUCKY HUSSLER – Blinkers on last time and wow, did that work, he exploded away from a good field and the race rated very strongly. Mile no issue. Gate? Pattern? Can win!
    11 – BULL POINT – Strong finale (best late splits) of Crystal Mile and 2kg swing on Hooked a plus. Also had very good late splits Caulfield prior given he stayed on (slower) inside lanes.
    6 – CONTRIBUTOR – Nice Oz debut. Beat Noble Protector and Signoff! Back to mile some query but high-class. Goes in!
    2 – THE CLEANER – Also worried about the drop to 1600m but how brave was he in Cox Plate… He was entitled to be beaten 10L on that speed.


  2. Right, I’ve listened to Racing Fix on SEN and I’m ready to go. Here’s our Stakes trifecta today:

    1st – 5, 6, 9, 10, 11
    2nd – 2, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 13, 15
    3rd – 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 13, 15
