Sadler’s Lake ($3.40) has returned to racing in exceptional form this time and has maintained status as clear favourite in 2015 Grand Prix Stakes at Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of Worthy Cause ($6.50) and Master Of Arts ($7.50).

Will Sadler’s Lake justify favouritism and win the 2015 Grand Prix Stakes, or will one of his talented rivals find the line in the clear?

1st

Inauguration ($12)

One of two leading chances for success for Peter Moody in the Grand Prix Stakes, Inauguration has steadily built to the task this time, will be partnered by Hugh Bowman and is sure to receive a good ride from barrier 7. Running third in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) first-up on April 6th, the Authorized gelding was unable to make anything of an impact when ninth in the Group 3 Gunsynd Classic (1800m) but ran on for a credible fifth in the Group 3 Rough Habit Plate (2000m) a fortnight ago. Sure to relish the track conditions, Inauguration offers exceptional value for money at current odds.

2nd

Bachman ($9)

Posting two wins and a further three minors through eleven career starts so far, Bachman is likely to receive the run of the race from barrier 2 and will be partnered by Michael Cahill. Posting several commendable results through spring, including a close fourth behind the likes of Shooting To Win and Scissor Kick in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m), the All American colt has steadily built to the task over two starts this time and is sure to relish a step-up to 2000m after placing third in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) on May 9th.

3rd

Upham ($14)

Peter Moody’s second Grand Prix Stakes entrant, Upham has finished a close second in each of his two most recent starts and arguably offers punters the best value for money in 2015 Grand Prix Stakes betting markets at current $14 for success or $4.30 to finish in the first three. Finishing outside the first three only once in seven starts, the son of Mastercraftsman won the Lakes Podiatry Handicap (1600m) on April 9th; progressing to second in the Gunsynd Classic and Rough Habit Plate over the last month.
