The nominations suggest that the PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield this Saturday will be a race in two between Black Heart Bart and Hartnell, and the all in market at Sportsbet.com.au reflects that.
The proven champ at the Caulfield 1400m is Black Heart Bart and he is the top pick with the bookies at $3, ahead of Hartnell, the more brilliant of the pair, at $3.70. Don’t be surprised to see those two swap places.
Lankan Rupee is the $6.50 third choice and given he hasn’t had much racing for two years, he needs to win to ensure a start in the Memsie due to low prizemoney over that time.
The big watch is clearly the Australian Cup winner Humidor, heading down the Caulfield Cup path. He is at $11.
