Ladbrokes Tip: The Talindert Stakes is the best guide to the VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes

The VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes, formerly the Henry Bucks Sires’ Produce Stakes, is a Group 2 support act on ‘Super Saturday’ at Flemington Racecourse during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

Open only to two-year-olds and run over 1400m at set weights, the VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes runs on a Saturday in early to mid March and takes place at the same meeting as the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) and Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m).

2018 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ insider VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes 2018 betting tips on the two-year-olds to back and sack in the race will be detailed below heading up to the race so stay tuned.

  • 1st: #6 TIN HAT ($5.50)
  • 2nd: #2 SANCTIMONIOUS ($5.50)
  • 3rd: #5 SEBERATE ($7.50)

A wide open edition of the VRC Sires’ and happy to take the firming price on the market mover TIN HAT ($5.50) who gets the run of the race from barrier three. Good on debut just beaten to the line by OUTRAGEOUS before improving on February 25 carrying 58kg to victory at Ballarat over 1200m. His time in that was good and should have enough upside to win going up to 1400m. SANCTIMONIOUS ($5.50) is at the same price near the top of betting and benefits from having Craig Williams jump back aboard. The Tony McEvoy-trained Foxwedge colt won at The Valley with  Williams in the saddle two back before a narrow Sydney loss in the Inglis Classic running the best of that field. SEBERATE ($7.50) looks the danger for Lindsay Park, the Blue Diamond Prelude fourth placegetter reeling off an outstanding final furlong there with the 1400m to suit.
