Weir holds all the aces again at Caulfield on Saturday

September 20, 2016

racing-melbTwo Group 1 events, the Underwood Stakes and Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes, highlight feature racing in Melbourne this Saturday.

In the 2016 Underwood Stakes, online bookmaker Sportsbet has in-form Darren Weir sprinter Black Heart Bart the $3.20 favourite over Lucia Valentina $3.80.

Bart’s stablemate, Melbourne Cup winner Prince Of Penzance, has opened at $26, and last start Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes winner, Awesome Rock is $10.

In the 2016 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes, another Weir galloper, Voodoo Lad, is fancied to break into the big time at Caulfield.

Sportsbet has posted Voodoo Lad as the $4.40 favourite, ahead of Chris Waller’s Counterattack $4.60.

Just two other horses, Bon Aurum $7.00 and Under The Louvre $8.00 are in single figures.

“Weir has been patient with Voodoo Lad, just working his way through the classes,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.

“This is a massive step up from Listed level, but he has won his last two and hasn’t finished out of a place in 15 career starts, so everything points to him making the grade.”

The Underwood Stakes meeting will take place on Saturday 24th September 2016 at Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne.
