Fourteen quality three-year-olds will be taking to Moonee Valley in the 2010 Bill Stutt Stakes this Friday, September 24.
The Group 2, $200,000 event has attracted a final field of top gallopers led by the Mark Kavanagh-trained Liveandletdie ($6.50). The three-year-old colt is the odds on favourite to win at $5.00. A placing in these Stutt Stakes seems likely especially when you consider his fantastic starting position in barrier number one.
Liveandletdie will be facing some tough competition as the field is packed with talent. This includes Epic Dragon who has generated plenty of pre-race buzz. His most recent outing produced a strong first place finish over fellow Stutts Stakes competitor Muchos Respectos ($21.00). The three-year-old brown colt will need to overcome a less than desirable barrier draw as he is starting from number nine. He’s listed at $11.00 odds at Sportsbet.
Other potential winners include the Peter G Moody-trained Servant ($7.50), the Peter Snowden-trained Bullbars ($7.00), and the Lee Freedman-trained Censor ($6.50). The latter is coming into the 2010 Stutt Stakes off of a decent run in the Henry Bucks Best Dressed Stakes (1400m), coming in third to fellow Stutt Stakes runner Hollowlea ($11.00).
The 2010 Stutt Stakes will be one of four Group races to be held this Friday night, including the Group 1 Manikato Stakes. Don’t forget to get to Ladbrokes.com.au to put down all of your wagers on these upcoming races. You won’t find better odds anywhere else.
