2018 Bletchingly Stakes preview and odds at Caulfield

July 26, 2018

2018 bletchingly stakesVega Magic is all the rage for the 2018 Bletchingly Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday, dominating betting at online bookmaker Sportsbet.

The Lindsay park trained sprinter resumes in the $150,000 Group 3 feature event and is a clear favourite at $2.15 in early betting.

Vega Magic is unbeaten in two Caulfield starts and captured the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) in his last appearance at this course in September last year.

His only start during the autumn resulted in an unplaced run in the Group 1 Goodwood at Morphettville in Adelaide before he was turned out for a spell.

Punters expect the classy son of Lope De Vega to prove too good for his rivals on Saturday.

Second favourite for the Bletchingly Stakes is Group 3 Sir John Monash Stakes winner Voodoo Lad, who is $3.40 at Sportsbet.

Trained by Darren Weir and to be ridden by Mark Zahra, Voodoo Lad was an easy first up winner over 1100m at this track and appears well placed again.

The I Am Invincible six-year-old has four wins and one placing from five outings at Caulfield and looks the testing material to the warm favourite.

Both Vega Magic and Voodoo Lad dominate Bletchingly Stakes betting with Jukebox $8.00 and Ardrossan $8.00 the only others under double figure odds.

Jukebox, from the Ciaron Maher yard, finished less than two lengths from Voodoo Lad when a first-up third in the Monash Stakes and has a more than handy record over this course and trip.

Mick Price three-year-old Ardrossan wasn’t far away from the winner when unplaced in the Group 2 Rubiton Stakes in the autumn and is one to watch in his return to racing.

Consistent galloper Black Heart Bart also resumes and is $10.00.

The 2018 Bletchingly Stakes is set to run as Race 7 at Caulfield on Saturday 28th July 2018 and start time is scheduled for 3.40pm in the afternoon.
