The Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes will run at Moonee Valley Racecourse tonight March 16, 2012, and here we have put together the hottest tips and form for the race.
We are backing Proliferate to win the 2012 Alister Clark Stakes, who is the market mover and $3.50 favourite for the race at bookmaker.com.au.
Proliferate finished seventh in his last start in the group 1 Australian Guineas, with trainer Mick Price admitting it was bad decision to send him to that race.
The More Than Ready colt has won three of his four race starts and has earned more than $160,000 in prize money.
For second, we are backing Sangster, who won Group 1 Victoria Derby last spring.
Trainer Tent Busuttin is hoping Sangster can prove he is up to running in the 2012 Australian Derby with a win in tonight’s 2012 Alister Clark Stakes.
Sangster finished last first-up this spring in the Group 1 Waikato Draught Sprint, before finishing 15th of 16 runner in the Australian Guineas earlier this month.
“He was definitely very disappointing last start,” Busuttin said.
“He obviously wasn’t a winning chance second-up but we would have liked to see him running on.
“We couldn’t find anything wrong with him after the Australian Guineas, we are just putting it down to just one of those days.
“He has done it before in Sydney where he threw in a bad one out of the blue then bounced back and we are just hoping that he will do the same (tonight).
“I can’t fault him. He’s galloped well, worked well and I’m happy with his condition but he really has to run in the first three in the Alister Clark to justify getting up to Sydney for the (Rosehill) Guineas and Derby.”
Highly Recommended is our pick to finish third in the 2012 Alister Clark Stakes and is paying odds of $5 at bookmaker.com.au.
