Well the action at the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival certainly looks to be hotting up, especially with the running of the $100,000 Group Three Cockram Stakes (1400m) this Saturday.
This is the period where punters should really be putting their dollar down, as the favourites for the big spring features warm up rather than deliver, so find out where’s best to place your dollar through Ladbrokes.com.au.
Twenty-four classy mares at least four-years-old have been nominated for the 2010 Cockram Stakes, but only a maximum of 16 will start.
There are several key runners for punters ready to get the early market odds to look out for at Ladbrokes.com.au, one of which is the Rick Hore-Lacy-trained Big Spirit.
The four-year-old returned to her winning ways late last month in the $70,000 Pin & Win for Epilepsy Handicap (1200m) at Caulfield. It was an emphatic surge from the consistent filly that’s success relies on the jump.
Another contender is winner of the 2009 Thousand Guineas Irish Lights. The David Hayes-trained mare’s last jump was in the $600,000 Group One Coolmore Stud Classic where she was defeated by Alverta in a disappointing 12th place.
Successful trainer Mark Kavanagh has two nominated for the 2010 Cockram Stakes through the Bertolini mare Puttanesca, and five-year-old Valentine Miss.
The 2010 Cockram Stakes will be one of eight thrilling races at Caulfield this Saturday, so make sure to head back here for betting tips or head straight to Ladbrokes.com.au now for the best options!
