TJ Smith Stakes Odds
TJ Smith Stakes Betting Odds 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.
