2011 Apollo Stakes Betting And Favourites

February 19th, 2011

The 2011 Apollo Stakes is offering punters plenty of value in current betting markets.

Current favourite with online bookmaker Luxbet is Hot Danish at a $3.50 fixed price. Impressively the mare hasn’t missed a placing in her last nine starts, dating all the way back into 2009.

With an overall 80 percent place rate from 30 career starts you’d be crazy not to at the very least have her firmly pencilled in for your trifectas and quinellas.

Challengers will come thick and fast with punters fancying Love Conquers All as second favourite only just outside the fixed price of Hot Danish, currently $4.40.

The stallion has won six of his 12 career races and notably a gallant second in the Expressway Stakes on this track last start. Two things putting doubts in the punters minds are no doubt the wide barrier 8 combined with this horse never having won over 1,400m.

The third main contender in the 2011 Apollo Stakes has to be Danleigh. While he’s without a win since early 2010 any horse boasting nearly $2 million in prize money has to come into calculations. Last start in the Expressway Stakes he finished just outside a placing in fourth but will be a lot better after the first up run. He also offers tremendous value with an $8 fixed price very generous for a horse of this calibre.

The other chances in the Apollo today at Rosehill are, Melito ($4.80 fixed) one of the most consistent runners and of course the winner of the Expressway Stakes, Centennial Park.

Amazingly after winning the Group One last start punters are yet to be convinced with the New Zealand gelding so there’s still plenty of value about him. Currently you’ll get $6 fixed and more than $10 on the fluctuations.

If the roughies are your go than at longest odds today is Run For Naara, which is deservedly paying more than $100 after never placing in four first up races.

To get in on the action with today’s Apollo Stakes sign up to Luxbet now. There are plenty of runners with a chance and they are all at decent value. Boxing up a trifecta could be the go here as it’ll no doubt pay quite handsomely whatever the result.

Remember if you join now Luxbet will match your initial deposit, so you could have up to $400 of free money riding home a winner today!
