Underwood Stakes Odds 2018 - Darren Weir duo favoured in early markets

  • Darren Weir has leading chances in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes 
  • Is a Mick Price runner a contender? 
Humidor favourite for the 2018 Underwood Stakes.

The Darren Weir duo of Humidor and Gailo Chop have been installed favourites for the Group One Underwood Stakes (1800m) at Caulfield on Sunday, September 30.

Humidor, who came so close to defeating Winx in the 2017 Cox Plate, is likely to resume in either the Memsie Stakes or Makybe Diva Stakes, before competing in the Underwood Stakes on her way to the Caulfield Cup. 

Seven horses have won the Underwood Stakes-Caulfield Cup double, whereas 14 horses have done the Underwood Stakes-Cox Plate double, most recently it was superstar So You Think in 2010.  

Gailo Chop stamped himself as a weight for age star over the Autumn Carnival, winning the Group 1 Ravnet Stakes (2000m), the Group 2 Peter Young Stakes (1800m) and finished with a close-up second in the Group 1 Australia Cup (2000m) behind Harlem. 

Last Spring, Gailo Chop went to the Makybe Diva Stakes first-up before attacking the Underwood Stakes, then through to the Caulfield Stakes. I would expect Weir to follow a similar path again this year. 

Horses such as Johannes Vermeer, D’Argento, Black Heart Bart, Unforgotten and Egg Tart will all be major players if they line-up in the race, however, a horse I believe is sneaking under the radar is the Mick Price-trained Hiyaam. 

Mick Price has said that he thinks Hiyaam is an ideal Caulfield Cup prospect and will get into the race as a lightweight chance. Keeping this in mind, it makes sense that Price would run Hiyaam in the Underwood and at $15 with Crownbet, I believe she represents some value.
