2010 Norman Robinson Stakes Tips & Betting Preview

October 15th, 2010

The 2010 Norman Robinson Stakes is on this Saturday October 16, and the odds are now up at online betting sites. Read on for our best 2010 Norman Robinson Stakes tips in our betting preview.

Leading the odds at Ladbrokes.com.au is Retrieve in barrier 1 and carrying top weight at 57kg, priced at $2.70 to win. Retrieve recently picked up a second place finish in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes, which followed a Group 3 Gloaming Stakes win. Critically, Retrieve has also performed well in the wet previously, and the track shouldn’t be too torn up by the time the Norman Robinson Stakes jumps.

One shouldn’t discount stablemate Yulalona, however, who has yet to run in a Group race but is currently on a win streak that saw him win the Listed Dulcify Quality last start. Priced quite high at $9.00, a bet on Yulalona essentially relies on trusting that Peter Snowden knew what he was doing by putting two of his runners in the Norman Robinson Stakes.

The second favourite is hardly worth mentioning. Rekindled Interest is priced at $3.80 at Ladbrokes.com.au, but there isn’t much to recommend him. No experience at 2000 metres, no wins in all of his Group race appearances, average performance in the wet… While it’s true the gelding has taken a step down in competition, it probably isn’t enough.

If you are interested in betting on the 2010 Norman Robinson Stakes or any of the other races on Caulfield Cup Day, then be sure to sign up for a Ladbrokes.com.au account to take advantage of the great odds and generous bonuses offered there.
