Ladbrokes Tip: The Tulloch Stakes is a good betting guide to the ATC Derby in Sydney each autumn
The Tulloch Stakes is a Group 2 support race on the Tancred Stakes Day card at Rosehill Gardens on a Saturday in late March each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. Two elite levels headline the bill with the Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2400m) run at weight-for-age and the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) for the three-year-old fillies.
Also run over the 2000m is the Tulloch Stakes for three-year-old colts and geldings that face off at set weights vying for $200,000 in total prize money. The Tulloch Stakes is a traditional lead-up race to the following weekend’s Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) over the mile and a half at Randwick during ‘The Championships’ and the double was last achieved by Starcraft (2004) followed by Jon Snow (2017).
The latest edition of the Tulloch Stakes ran on Saturday March 31, 2018 .

Tulloch Stakes Betting & Odds
Official Tulloch Stakes betting markets open after the field of final acceptances is announced the Wednesday before the race but all-in odds are available once nominations are out.
Three-year-olds coming off a good lead-up in an earlier Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival event like the Phar Lap Stakes dominate the Tulloch Stakes odds.
Previous form up to at least 1500m or further and experience at the Rosehill track also help determine the order of the Tulloch Stakes markets each autumn.
2018 Tulloch Stakes Odds
The Tulloch Stakes 2018 betting odds will be updated below throughout race week so make sure you stay tuned to see the market movers and shakers ahead of the ATC Derby final lead-up this autumn.
Tulloch Stakes Field
The Tulloch Stakes field attracts a quality line-up of three-year-old colts and geldings with staying ambition and potential.
It is run a week before the Australian Derby and is a last minute option for youngsters to make the Group 1 field over 400m further the following Saturday at Sydney’s other leading race track.
Many runners in the Tulloch Stakes field come off an earlier March run at the track in the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m). In 2016 Old North ran fourth in the Phar Lap Stakes before his Tulloch Stakes win and the previous year Tulloch Stakes winner Hauraki (2015) came off a Phar Lap Stakes second. Hauraki also backed up to run second in the 2015 ATC Derby.
Tulloch Stakes nominations are taken on the Monday before the race runs on the Saturday followed by the release of the final field and barriers on the Wednesday.
2018 Tulloch Stakes Field
The official Tulloch Stakes 2018 Field & Barriers will be announced the Wednesday prior to Tancred Stakes Day and published in full below so bookmark this page to see the young staying types that are in the mix.
The 2018 Tulloch Stakes Final Field is down to 15 hopefuls after the early withdrawal of Epic Rant (7) and all the money in early Tulloch Stakes betting is on the in-form Kiwi raider Mongolian Marshal. Levendi is also high up the markets drawn in barrier six and out to go one better than his lead-up second to Cliff’s Edge at The Valley in the Alister Clark Stakes.

2018 Tulloch Stakes Nominations
The early 2018 Tulloch Stakes Nominations are taken by Racing NSW on the Monday of race week with the full list of potential Australian Derby horses to be published below once announced.
The Tulloch Stakes 2018 Nominations drew 19 hopeful young stayers including the in-form Kiwi raider Mongolian Marshal looking to go back-to-back in the race for the NZ horses after the success of Jon Snow in 2017. Trainers Murray Baker & Andrew Formsan have also nominated Weather With You, the spring’s Geelong Classic winner unplaced since.
Tulloch Stakes Tips
Taking the three-year-olds coming off a top three run in the Phar Lap Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill a fortnight earlier is a top Tulloch Stakes betting tip. The Phar Lap Stakes form has stacked up in the Tulloch Stakes a number of times in recent years and runners that finished top three in their lead-up run have a top strike-rate in the Group 2 feature.
Looking at locking in a three-year-old out of the Tulloch Stakes for a top three run in the following weekend’s ATC Derby is another tip that has paid dividends in recent years for punters.

- 1st: #2 LEVENDI ($5)
- 2nd: #8 AUGUSTUS ($18)
- 3rd: #3 BELFAST ($8)
Happy to give LEVENDI ($5) a shot here after the second to Cliff’s Edge in the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m). Cliff’s Edge failed to frank the form when unplaced in the Rosehill Guineas last Saturday, but this son of Pierro should go the Sydney way from a good gate. AUGUSTUS ($18) looks overs from the Chris Waller stable after the Snitzel colt’s lead-up win over the Warwick Farm mile. This is a class rise and there’s a query at the distance, but think he’ll be fit and can surprise. BELFAST ($8) was good in the Alister Clark Stakes third, form that can stack-up here in Sydney now.
Tulloch Stakes Form Guide
The Tulloch Stakes form guide details all the crucial information for punters like the saddlecloth numbers, jockeys, trainers, barriers and lead-up form to follow into the race.
Looking at the form guide for three-year-olds that finished first, second or third in their lead-up run in Sydney is important, and those higher up the markets have a good strike rate in the race.
The Tulloch Stakes form has stacked-up in other three-year-old staying races a number of times in recent years including the ATC Derby that the 2017 Tulloch winner Jon Snow won next race.
