TJ Smith Stakes Betting Odds 2021

The Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) will be run at Royal Randwick on Saturday, April 10. Here are the TJ Smith Stakes odds for 2021.

Defending champion Nature Strip is favourite to win back-to-back TJ Smith Stakes as he looks to add another Group 1 win to his name this preparation. The Chris Waller-trained six-year-old gelding proved too good in the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) first up from a spell at Flemington. He then was narrowly beaten in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) by Eduardo.

The Joseph Pride-trained seven-year-old gelding Eduardo was a dominant winner of the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) as he led throughout and romped away with a 3.5-length victory. That win followed his Challenge Stakes victory against Nature Strip and a rematch in the TJ Smith Stakes will be a highlight of The Championships Day 1.

Godolphin’s four-year-old entire Bivouac has been costly for punters with a pair of unplaced performances in the Black Caviar Lightning and Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) won by stablemate Savatiano.

Bivouac won the Group 1 Darley Sprint Classic (1200m) during the spring and was runner up in the $15 million The Everest (1200m).
