Having returned to racing in slick form this time in, talented Godolphin import Contributer has opened as and maintained status as clear favourite in 2015 Chipping Norton Stakes betting markets and is currently available at generous odds of $2.80 for success; registering as clear market mover at Ladbrokes.com.au after cutting in from opening odds of $3.

Beginning his career aboard in Europe, Contributer debuted in Australia for an impressive victory in the Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m) on October 18th and returned to the paddock following a luckless run for eighth in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) in early November.

Having posted a commanding win in the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) first-up on February 14th, the High Chaparral entire will leave from the ideal barrier 4 and is more than worth consideration for a Chipping Norton Stakes bet.

Lucia Valentina was a standout performer over the entire 2014 Australian racing calendar and arguably offers punters the best value for success in 2015 Chipping Norton Stakes betting markets at current $5 odds, particularly in being charged with carrying just 57kgs.

Debuting in Australia for a credible third in the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m), the Savabeel mare appeared out of her depth when failing to match the late pace and 12th in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m), but responded in the best way possible when charging home to win the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) on April 5th.

Returning to the paddock after a strong run for third in the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) on Day 2 of The Championships, Lucia Valentina stormed home late to win the Group 2 Tramway Stakes (1400m) upon resuming in spring.

Progressing to an impressive win in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) and third in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) most notably, Lucia Valentina was unlucky to be blocked for a run in the final straight of the Apollo Stakes first-up, but still managed fourth.

While each yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of bets for success in 2015 Chipping Norton Stakes markets, Weary and Ninth Legion remain tied on the third line at a particularly generous quote of $9 each.

Winning the Group 3 Doncaster Prelude (1500m) before claiming minor place finishes in each of the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) and Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) most notably in 2014, Weary returned for an impressive win in the Group 2 Expressway Stakes (1200m) this time before placing third in the Apollo Stakes a fortnight ago.

Securing six wins and a further seven minor places over his 27 start career so far, Ninth Legion charged home to win the Listed Carrington Stakes (1400m) first-up this time before a close second in the Apollo Stakes last time out.

Charged with overcoming the wide barrier 12, Ninth Legion has been confirmed to be partnered by jockey Tim Bell.
