CF Orr Stakes Runners: Leading contenders for the Group 1

  • Who will win the CF Orr Stakes?
Divine Prophet will be among the main hopes

The Group 1 CF Orr Stakes will be run at Caulfield on Saturday. 

The track is expected to be great and fair.

The race is over 1400m and worth $500,000.

Here are the Top 5 hopes in the big race in saddlecloth order.

1. BLACK HEART BART ($3.90 Unibet)

Outstanding galloper and this is probably his pet trip. Ran bravely when 2nd this grade first up and when last in work was a picture of consistency this class. Drawn awkwardly this time around and there is genuine 1400m pace on his inside which means he may need to drop out and charge late. Which he can do.

3. LUCKY HUSSLER ($7.00 Sportsbet)

This is the dark horse. He excels this trip and last start up on the Gold Coast he was a certainty beaten, held up several times at vital stages. Has struggled this grade in the past but I sense he might actually be in career best shape.

4. MALAGUERRA ($4.00 bet365)

Has an awkward draw to deal with. Does he drive forward and if so he will be met by pure speed underneath him so he could get posted three wide all way? If he drops out he can find a slot but he has to give class gallopers a start over a trip he's never really been top draw at. Saying all that, he won like a superstar this grade last start when resuming.

8. ECUADOR ($12 Luxbet)

Sydney galloper who has no option but to hunt forward here. Which actually should suit him. He is fit and fast enough to find the fence and they will know he's in this race as they come to the home bend. He's a caged lion and refuses to yield. If they leave him alone in front, he will lead them all the way at good odds. Very dangerous here.

12. DIVINE PROPHET ($9.00 bet365

Baby of the field but by no means the least. Has a Gr 1 win this track to his record already and he trialled great in Sydney recently. Should be close enough to strike down the running and is highly gifted.

PREDICTION: 1. ECUADOR ($12 Luxbet), 2. Divine Prophet, 3. Black Heart Bart
