Australia’s premier online bookmaker Sportsbet have opened their betting markets for this Saturday’s $200,000 Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield.
The 2010 Herbert Power Stakes odds are dominated by the three runners fighting for a spot in the Caulfield Cup field Saturday week with Moudre, Precedence and Linton at the shortest prices.
The Ciaron Maher-trained Moudre has opened at Sportsbet as the odds-on favourite to win the Herbert Power Stakes and gain the 2010 Caulfield Cup ballot exemption.
Moudre (barrier nine) is paying $2.50 to win following their consistent spring form that has seen the five-year-old win three straight races before finishing third in the Naturalism Stakes last start.
Following closely at a quote of $3 is the Bart Cummings-trained Precedence.
Zabeel gelding Precedence has come up trumps in the barrier draw for Saturday with gate one and is coming off an impressive win in the JRA Cup at Moonee Valley.
The other Caulfield Cup hopeful at single figure odds for the Herbert Power Stakes showdown is the Lloyd Williams-owned Linton paying $4.80.
Galileo four-year-old Linton has also come up with an ideal barrier three draw, is tipped to improve following his gallant third to Precedence in the JRA Cup and is an excellent lightweight chance with just 53.5kg to cause an upset on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Apprehend could prove another value pick at the generous price of $11 through Sportsbet.
The Tony Vasil-trained five-year-old is also vying for a spot in the Caulfield Cup field and ran a promising fourth in the Naturalism behind Moudre, but is best for a Place bet.
The 2010 Sportingbet Herbert Power Stakes is scheduled as Race 3 at Caulfield for Saturday and is due to start at 1:15pm.
