2011 Chipping Norton Stakes Betting Tips

March 3rd, 2011

The 2011 Chipping Norton Stakes will light up Warwick Farm Racecourse this Saturday March 5 and here we have the latest odds and best betting tips for the opening Group 1 race of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Set to run as Warwick Farm Race 6 on Saturday jumping at 4:26pm (AEDST), the 2011 Chipping Norton Stakes features an elite field of 13 gallopers including nine individual Group 1 winners.

Clear favourite in the Luxbet Chipping Norton Stakes betting markets is the Tony Vasil-trained Melito at a firming quote of $3.20.

Last start the dual Group 1 winning daughter of Redoute’s Choice won the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) ahead of a quality field at Rosehill first-up and will improve again second-up in the Chipping Norton this weekend.

The depth of the Chipping Norton Stakes field this year, however, combined with Melito’s less-than-inspiring record over 1600m and her far outside barrier draw mean there is value in laying the favourite through Luxbet.

There are a number of other top-class contenders amongst Melito’s Chipping Norton Stakes rivals on Saturday who have a genuine chance to claim an upset at longer-priced odds.

Chipping Norton Stakes Best Betting Tips – Warwick Farm Race 6

Punters’ Favourite: #11 Melito – $3.20 through Luxbet

Has the form and talent but not the record over the mile or the draw.

Our Pick to Win: #3 Danleigh – Rated Special at $7.50 so back them now at Luxbet

Consistent Chris Waller-trained seven-year-old, forget last start sixth in Apollo where had no room and look instead at their eye-catching fourth to Shocking third-up at this track and distance in the Group 2 Makybe Diva Stakes last prep. Improved since and can win at a nice price.

To Finish Second: Melito

$1.50 Place Odds at Luxbet but lock in the Quinella with Danleigh for more value instead.

Third Place Goes To: #9 Luen Yat Forever

Former Macau galloper was impressive when beaten less than a length finishing fourth in the Emirates Stakes last year, has good draw and adds value to the Trifecta as a $14 chance through Luxbet

Add into Exotics / First Four Bets: #13 Once Were Wild

A market firmer prepared by Waterhouse, was fourth in Apollo but should have come on since then and find her feet and speed better in the Chipping Norton.

Best Roughie for an Upset: #12 Sacred Choice – $21 Fixed Win Odds at Luxbet $5.70 to Place

Is Warwick Farm trained, great record over the mile of three wins and two placings from five starts, don’t discount.
