Underwood Stakes Betting Preview & Betting Tips

Old warhorse the one to beat Sunday’s Group One.

Thu, 26 Sep, 12:00 AM

Race Shape:

The speed horses are Trap For Fools (2), Gailo Chop (12) and Homesman (13) so there could be a bit of pressure on early. Expecting to see Hartnell (1) smoking the pipe just off them from the good draw while The Chosen One (3) and Gatting (7) could be next in line.

The Key Runners:


1. HartnellH Bowman: $4.80*:

Made up good ground in the Makybe Diva Stakes at his second run back from a break. Will strip fitter now and is drawn perfectly in gate one. Expect Hughie to have him two or three pairs back. If he gets clear air, watch him motor home.


12. The Chosen OneD. Lane: $12*:

Did a stack of work first-up in the Feehan when three-wide for the whole race. Despite that, finished fifth to Homesman and has won second-up in the past. Should get a far better run from gate three this time around. Will be there at the finish.


5. HarlemD. Dunn: $81*:

The two-time Australian Cup winner is capable of springing a surprise. Interestingly, his two Cups have come third-up and that is where he is at this time in. Drawn 10 so expect him to be midfield or a little worse but he is now getting out to a more suitable distance and the firm surface helps his cause.



  1. • Hartnell $4.80*
  2. • Gatting – $4.80*
  3. • The Chosen One $12*
  4. • Homesman – $2.80*


Betting Plan:

Risking Homesman at the price simply because of the barrier. Our betting play is for Hartnell because he will get a cosy run just off the speed so he is worth putting a large slice of the bank on. Outside of him, Gatting’s win at $101 last start was no fluke so we’ll save on him while The Chosen One and Harlem are worth specks at the odds for a chop out.



  • • 50% of the bank on Hartnell to Win ($4.80*)
  • • 25% of the bank on Gatting to Win ($4.80*)
  • • 15% of the bank on The Chosen One to Win ($12*)
  • • 10% of the bank on Harlem each-way ($81*)
