February 11, 2017

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) and Moment Of Change (2014).
