The Auries Star Handicap over 1200 metres is on at Flemington Melbourne tomorrow (August 9 2008), and all the talk is about Stavka chasing his 4th straight victory. Can anyone throw me another opinion?!
Now whilst I think he is a great campaigner, who is certainly in a bit of a purple patch at the moment, I think there are plenty of other chances in the race. Take Translate for instance, I really like this fella, and first up from 5 starts he has 2 wins and a second – and at $9.50 fixed odds, I think he is a great chance to cause a boilover, and take out the Aurie Star. The Aurie Star Handicap is in my opinion, WIDE OPEN. Who’s with me in betting against the favourite Stavka?
