Hollindale Stakes Odds & Betting

AD Hollindale Stakes betting markets are usually dominated by interstate-trained raiders coming off good lead-up runs in tougher and or similar class races in Sydney earlier in the autumn. Gallopers with proven form at the distance and further sit high up the Hollindale Stakes odds and the markets often favour runners dropping back in class out of a lead-up like the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) in Sydney over more distance during April’s ‘The Championships’ or the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) also held at Royal Randwick. The Doncaster Mile – AD Hollindale Stakes double was recently achieved by It’s Somewhat (2017).

Favourites in AD Hollindale Stakes betting only have a fair recent record in the event however, but the winner will be at a firming price in markets for the upcoming Doomben Cup in Brisbane two weeks on.
