Autumn Stakes 2019

Saturday February 9, 2019

Ladbrokes Tip: The Autumn Stakes makes a good lead-up into the Australian Guineas each autumn

The Autumn Stakes is one of the first Group 2 races held during the annual Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival and runs at Caulfield Racecourse on C.F. Orr Stakes Day in mid-February.

The meeting’s card is headlined by the season’s first elite level race – the Group 1 Ladbrokes C.F. Orr Stakes (1400m), and the Autumn Stakes for three-year-olds is one of three Group 2 support acts on the bill. Run over 1400m at set weights plus penalties, the Autumn Stakes offers a total of $200,000 in prize money and young horses often kick off their autumn campaigns in the race.

It also serves as a key early lead-up into the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington the following month and the double was recently achieved by Light Fantastic (2008).

Autumn Stakes Field

The Autumn Stakes field attracts a quality line-up of three-year-old gallopers each year, many racing first-up for the autumn. If not resuming in the Autumn Stakes, runners may come off a lead-up run in something like the Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1300m) in January.

Autumn Stakes Tips

Autumn Stakes tips include looking for a runner under $10 for the win with proven Melbourne form in similar company.

Runners proven over the distance (1400m) or further also make a good Autumn Stakes betting tip, with Thunder Fantasy winning the race first-up in 2014 after a third in the previous year’s Victoria Derby (2500m).

The winning strike rate for favourites is only fair, but they make excellent place bets and shouldn’t be left out of Autumn Stakes tips more often than not.

Autumn Stakes Form Guide

The Autumn Stakes form guide details all of the must know info like the jockeys, trainers and lead-up form of the runners in the field along with their barriers. Looking at the form for first-up runners that have a good strike rate when resuming who have winning form over 1400m or further is important.

The Autumn Stakes form has also stacked up in the Australian Guineas in recent years including 2014 Autumn Stakes winner Thunder Fantasy running third in the Group 1 next start. Heart Of Dreams (2009) also ran third in the Autumn Stakes before winning that year’s Australian Guineas.

In 2013 Autumn Stakes runner-up Fiveandahalfstar went on to run second in the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) two runs later and second in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) in Sydney after that before a win in the Group 1 The BMW (2400m) that autumn at Rosehill Gardens.
