2011 Colin Stephen Quality Handicap Betting & Odds

September 23rd, 2011

All week we’ve pointed out just how tight the 2011 Colin Stephen Handicap is shaping as and the betting markets are certainly reflecting this attitude.

While there are four horses in single figures there are another four not far behind and only the one real blowout across the entire field.

Such is the makeup of the 2011 Colin Stephen Handicap that nobody is really sure as to just what will happen  come Saturday.

Take a look at the odds below and you’ll see there’s plenty of value on offer right now at Luxbet.


Here’s the favourite and while he may look short he’s no guarantee. First time beyond 2000m against a field we know can run it, he opened at $2.50 but has since drifted to $2.70.


This horse is the firmer and we picked him earlier in the week as a real chance. He opened at $8.00 and that’s been crunched now into $6.00.

Rebel Soldier

Not a lot of interest around this horse at the moment, he opened at $21 and is unchanged.


Little bit of a nibble about Hume but not too much, $16 open now into $15.


Same story for Praecido, he opened at $9.00 and he’s been nudged slightly now into $8.50.


Steady and unchanged for Galizani, $13 open and that’s where he stays.


Roughie with a real hope here but punters are yet to prove that, he’s $14 now out to $15.

Red Eye Special

He’s taken money but not enough to move his quote, $11 open, $11 now.

Two For Tea

Probably the drifter of the field with the money for others, opened at $21 but now worth $26.

Splendid Honours

Here’s your roughie, he was $61 to start the day and he’ll finish on the same mark.


Here’s the number one market mover of the race and the one tipped to challenge the favourite. After a very generous $7.00 opening quote he came in as far as $4.80 in record time. After that he was pushed back out to $6.00 but he’s been crunched once more, now into $4.60.
