Only seven runners have been confirmed in the final field for this afternoon’s Group 3 Newcastle Spring Stakes (1600m); offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
The Chris Waller-trained Wudang Mountain ($2.60) has returned to racing in typically impressive form this season and remains outright favourite in 2015 Spring Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of Tatoosh ($3.80) and Gold Ambition ($4.60).
Will Wudang Mountain continue his impressive run of form with success in the 2015 Spring Stakes or will one of his talented rivals find the line in the clear?
Wudang Mountain ($2.60)
Wudang Mountain has fast stamped his claims as one to watch through the 2015 Spring Carnival, and will likely book himself a ticket south for the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) in October with success in the Spring Stakes this afternoon. Debuting for fourth in a Rosehill minor over 1200m in April, the Big Brown colt broke through for a maiden win in the Bledisloe Cup Festival Maiden (1300m) on July 22nd and will carry winning form into the Spring Stakes after beating a classy field to the line in the McGrath Estate Agents BM72 (1400m) on August 29th.
Devil Hawk ($11)
Devil Hawk has proven he is capable of success amongst company similar to that confirmed in the 2015 Spring Stakes field and offers exceptional value for money in betting markets at $11 for success or $4.60 to finish in the first three. Claiming one win and a minor through five competitive starts, the Purrealist colt returned this time for success in the Schweppes Maiden Plate (1250m) on August 12th but was unlucky to be blocked for a run late when fifth in the McGrath Estate Agents BM72 last time out.
Land’s End ($6)
Land’s End is one of the few horses confirmed in the 2015 Spring Stakes field with black type experience and should receive a dream run from the rails draw this afternoon. Winning a Warwick Farm minor over 1300m on debut, the Fastnet Rock colt has finished mid-pack in each of the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) and Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) most recently.
