Ladbrokes Tip: The Herbert Power Stakes is a good Spring Cups lead-up guide

The Ladbrokes Herbert Power Stakes is a Group 2 staying race for Spring Cup hopes run on Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day at Caulfield Racecourse in mid October each Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. The meeting features four Group 1 races including the Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas (1600m) and Thousand Guineas (1600m) for three-year-olds.

The other two majors on the card are the Group 1 Ladbrokes Caulfield Stakes (2000m) and the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m). Along with the four elite levels there are also two Group 2 support acts with the Schillaci Stakes (1100m) for sprinters and the Herbert Power Stakes run over the mile and a half (2400m).

Offering a generous $400,000 in total prize money, the race is a quality handicap clash that serves as a traditional lead-up to the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) over the same track / distance later in the month. The last horse to complete the Herbert Power Stakes – Caulfield Cup in the same season was Master O’Reilly (2007).

The latest edition of the Herbert Power Stakes ran on Saturday October 12, 2019 and was won by New Zealand galloper The Chosen One.

Many runners contest the Herbert Power Stakes after a run in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington earlier in October, which last produced a winner of the Group 2 with Amralah (7th) in 2015.

The other key lead-up is Moonee Valley’s Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m) in late September, which last produced a winner with Big Memory (8th) in 2014.
Runners may back-up from a Herbert Power Stakes run in the Group 3 Lexus Stakes (2500m) on Victoria Derby Day, a race the 2015 runner-up Excess Knowledge won before his seventh in the Melbourne Cup.

The 2014 Herbert Power Stakes winner Big Memory ran second in the Lexus Stakes that year after a 10th in the Caulfield Cup, the Lexus won by Signoff who improved on a Herbert Power second two runs earlier. Signoff also went on to run fourth to Protectionist, who crossed fourth in the event in his Australian debut, in that year’s Melbourne Cup.

Herbert Power Stakes nominations close the Monday before the race runs on the Saturday and final acceptances are out on the Wednesday.

2019 Herbert Power Stakes Field

The official Ladbrokes Herbert Power Stakes 2019 Final Field & Barriers on the Caulfield Cup lead-up will be provided in full below once announced on the Wednesday of race week so stay tuned to see the list of stayers set to face off in the mile and a half feature.

Fifteen stayers make-up the 2019 Ladbrokes Herbert Power Stakes field this season including last year’s third placegetter Prince Of Arran who also ran third in the Melbourne Cup trifecta.

Scratchings: #6 True Self (15) has been scratched with connections of the Irish-trained mare hoping that enough horses higher up the Caulfield Cup ballot order for next weekend’s $5 million classic are non-acceptors so she can still make the field without having to win the ballot exemption on offer in the Herbert Power Stakes.
