Ladbrokes Tip: Four-year-olds have the best recent record in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes results

The Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes is a handicap clash for middle distance sprint types held at Caulfield Racecourse in late September. Having previously been run on Underwood Stakes Day each Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, the Ladbrokes-sponsored race is now the feature on its own Caulfield race meeting that also features two Group 3 support acts.

Raced over 1400m and worth $500,000 in prize money it serves as a good lead-up into the Toorak Handicap held back at the track over 1600m. Trust In A Gust (2014) was the last galloper to complete the popular Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes – Toorak Handicap double.

Inaugurated in 1951 when Jovial Lad scored the race was originally known as the Invitation Stakes and it has held Group 1 status since a 1979 upgrade. It was renamed in honour of former Victorian Amateur Turf Club chairman Sir Rupert Clarke after his death in 2005. Many notable horses have won the race including Stratum Star (2015), Moment Of Change (2012), Exceed And Excel (2003), dual Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes champ Testa Rossa (1999 & 2000) and Encosta De Lago (1996).

The latest edition of the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes ran on Saturday September 21, 2019 and was won by the favourite Begood Toya Mother.

Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes Odds

Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes betting odds are usually dominated by in-form four-year-old horses in the field with four-year-olds winning all seven editions of the race from 2010 – 2018. Wide barriers are a non-issue but a good lead-up run ensures a shorter price in the markets, especially for graduates of the Group 2 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m) at Flemington, which is the traditional Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes lead-up producing four winners from 2007 – 2018.

Favourites in Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes betting have a solid recent record in the race winning three times on the trot from 2012 – 2014, but there have also been notable upsets including Santa Ana Lane ($26 in 2017) and the European raider Jungle Cat ($11 in 2018).

In 2019 the favourite in Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes betting Begood Toya Mother saluted on the back of a lead-up sixth in the Memsie Stakes.

Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes Field

The Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes final field has a capacity of 18 starters, a number the race has run at a number of times in recent years, most recently in 2015 when Stratum Star beat home 17 rivals from a wide barrier 15 draw.

Horses may come into the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes field via an earlier Group 1 spring run in the season’s opening elite level race, the Memsie Stakes. Begood Toya Mother (6th in 2019) was the last Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes winner to come out of the Memsie, held at the same track and distance, while Regal Roller (2014) was the last to do the double.
