Tosen Stardom has opened the favourite to take out the first Group l of 2018 in Australian racing, the CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield this Saturday.
The Darren Weir trained former Japanese galloper hasn’t raced since Melbourne Cup Week when scoring a devastating Group l win in the Emirates Stakes (2000m). His work has been good and from all reports is forward enough to win on Saturday. He is the $4.80 top elect.
He just holds the call over stablemate and proven Caulfield 1400m performer Black Heart Bart at $6. He has the barrier draw advantage and worked sensationally recently at Terang. He sits alongside Hartnell in betting.
The thrill seekers have bet early, with a couple of punters backing Jester Halo in from $101 to $81.
