Off the back of a last start second in a Group ll, Sircconi is the Sportsbet favourite to take out the Heatherlie Stakes (1700m) this Saturday at Caulfield.
The Nick Ryan trained gelding was huge in defeat two weeks ago when pipped in the PB Lawrence by Savatiano, who goes around as the second favourite in the Group l Memsie Stakes. Fitter and up to 1700m, Sircconi looks hard to beat here where he is the $3.50 favourite.
The other key chance on paper is Game Keeper, who was very good fresh in the Aurie’s Star but jumps to 1700m from 1200m. He’s at $4 and rock solid as a second pick in betting. There has been a couple of each way bets roll in for a couple of $71 chances, that are now into $67; Cape Of Good Hope and Minola.
