Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes 2019

Saturday February 9, 2019

Ladbrokes Tip: Look for horses that ran top three in their Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes lead-up run

The Ladbrokes C.F. Orr Stakes is the opening Group 1 race of the calendar year and an early highlight of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival. Contested at Caulfield Racecourse in mid-February the weight-for-age race is run over 1400m and offers a total of $500,000 in prize money plus prime betting opportunities for the punters.

A race dominated by the favourites in recent years the Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes is traditionally contested by middle-distance hopes that come out of the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley in January. Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes runners usually back-up at the same track and distance in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m). The race has been won by a host of turf greats and recent Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes winners include Dissident (2015), Moment Of Change (2014), All Too Hard (2013) and mighty mare Black Caviar (2012).

The last horse to complete the Australia Stakes – CF Orr Stakes double was Black Caviar (2012), while the popular CF Orr Stakes – Futurity Stakes double was last achieved by the likes of All Too Hard (2013), Moment Of Change (2014) and Black Heart Bart (2017) who improved on a lead-up second in the Australia Stakes. Backing the CF Orr Stakes winner to run top three in the Futurity Stakes is a great autumn racing tip.

This autumn’s Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes takes place on Saturday February 9, 2019.

2019 CF Orr Stakes Results

The 2019 C.F. Orr Stakes results and finishing order are revealed on Saturday February 9, 2019 when the classic runs as the sole Group 1 race on the Caulfield card that day. The CF Orr Stakes winner, trifecta and margins are just some of the details you’ll find listed below.

The Tony McEvoy trained Manuel caused an upset by taking out the first Group 1 of 2019 when he held off a wall of horses. First-up last prep the five year old gelding ran third at Balaklava so it has been quite a rise through the grades for him and owners. The judge couldn’t split Kementari and Land Of Plenty and they dead heated for second place.

Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes Tips

Ladbrokes C.F. Orr Stakes tips are based on the recent race history and statistics that reveal the hot streak of favourites in the race.

Along with backing the favourite another Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes betting tip is to look at horses that finished in the money in their lead-up run with just two runners in the past 10 years saluting off a worse than third lead-up. Mares also have a top record making them a favourite in Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes tipping with the most recent to win being Suavito (2016).

Horses drawn in double digit barriers have a poor recent record in the race, so another good tip for picking the CF Orr Stakes winner is to look for the WFA horses with a good gate.
