March 10th, 2016

A talent-rich field of fifteen has been confirmed to line up at the barriers for Saturday’s 2016 Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Generalife has returned to racing in typically competitive form this time and remains sole occupant of the top line of 2016 Ajax Stakes betting with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au at a quote of $5.50.

Capping a strong autumn and winter campaign third in each of the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) and Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m), the Lonhro gelding continued to impress through a short spring campaign and returned to the paddock after placing second in the Group 3 Kevin Heffernan Stakes (1300m).

Resuming this time for fourth in the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes (1200m) on February 13th, Generalife was unlucky late when fourth in the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m) last time out.

Generalife will leave from the ideal barrier 5 in the Ajax Stakes with leading Godolphin hoop James McDonald in the saddle.

Good Project has continued to receive the most attention in 2016 Ajax Stakes betting markets this week and has registered as clear $6 market mover as a result.

Failing to finish outside the first three through six starts in spring, Good Project capped his year with a maiden win at the highest level in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at Perth’s Ascot course on November 21st.

Trialling well in the lead-up to his 2016 return, Good Project attacked the line for third in the Liverpool City Cup first-up but will need luck in transit on Saturday from the outside barrier 15.

Rock Sturdy has drifted in 2016 Ajax Stakes betting markets this week but interestingly remains sole occupant of the third line of betting at a generous quote of $7.50 for success.

Posting four wins and nine minors through 20 career starts so far, Rock Sturdy capped a typically strong spring campaign an impressive third in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) on November 7th.

Unlucky not to win the Liverpool City Cup first-up, the Fastnet Rock entire arguably offers punters the best value for money in 2016 Ajax Stakes betting markets at current odds.

It’s Somewhat ($9) interestingly figures as the only other runner currently available at Ajax Stakes odds of less-than $10, while Puccini ($12), Big Money ($14) and Rudy ($16) all represent terrific value.
