Eight runners have been confirmed to line up for this weekend’s Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse, offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning bet.
A notable performer over the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival, classy stallion Bull Point has opened as and maintained slight favouritism for success in the 2014 Theo Marks Stakes, currently available at $3.10 odds with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
Securing an commendable record of three wins and four minor places from 11 competitive starts to date, Bull Point began his racing career under the guidance of Gai Waterhouse before transferring to current trainer Chris Waller at the conclusion of autumn.
Beating a talented field to the line in his maiden race starts in June last year, the Fastnet Rock entire continued to build in form and class on his way to fourth in the Listed Rosebud (1200m) and third in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) most notably on September 14th.
Appearing to have returned to racing in similarly strong form in autumn, Bull Point won the Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1200m) first-up and finished a credible fourth in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) on February 22nd, but returned to the paddock after two forgettable black type starts.
Finishing third amongst classy competition in the Group 3 Show County Quality (1200m) first-up on August 23rd, Bull Point is more than worth consideration for a bet in Theo Marks markets at current odds.
Having so-far received the biggest market share of wagers for success in the 2014 Theo Marks Stakes, Cluster has cut in from opening odds of more than $5 to currently featured as clear $3.20 market mover and second-favourite.
Performing well over five black type starts over the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival, arguably highlighted by a strong second in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) and third in the Group 2 Bill Stutt Stakes (1600m), Cluster has returned to the tack in exceptional form this time in; winning each of his first two starts before finishing a close second in the Hyland Race Colours 3.y.o+ (1200m) last time out on August 30th.
Allocated the ideal barrier 4, Cluster arguably offers punters the best value for money at current odds for success in the 2014 Theo Marks Stakes.
While yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of wagers for success in Theo Marks Stakes betting markets, Group 1 winner Kirramosa has maintained status as outright $5 third-favourite.
Beginning her career abroad in New Zealand, Kirramosa arrived in Australia for an impressive 2013 spring campaign; finishing fourth in the Listed Reginald Allen Quality (1400m) on September 28th and continuing to build in form and class on her way to back-to-back victories in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) and Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m).
Pleasing when sixth in the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m) first-up on August 9th, the Alamosa mare was the biggest winner at Wednesday’s Theo Marks barrier draw; allocated the ideal gate 1.\
