The 2011 Spring Champion Stakes is set to take place at Royal Randwick on October 1 as part of the elite Sydney Racing Carnival action of Epsom Handicap Day and the latest futures markets on the three-year-old showdown are lead by last-start Rosehill winner Strike The Stars.
Australia’s leading online bookmaker Luxbet readjusted their betting odds for the $400,000 Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) following the dominant victory of the Anthony Cummings-trained Strike The Stars last weekend.

An improving Savabeel gelding, Strike The Stars broke their maiden status six runs into their promising career with a strong three quarter length victory over Doctor Doom in the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes (1800m) at Rosehill on Saturday.
The Gloaming Stakes success came just one start after Strike The Stars showed good form in finishing a close third behind Trusting in the Group 2 Chelmsford stakes (1600m) and showed their ability to step up in distance.
Strike The Stars is now the Spring Champion Stakes betting favourite at a firming quote of $4.40.
The other 2011 Spring Champion Stakes hopefuls at single-figure odds are:
- Rekindled Alliance ($4.80 Luxbet): Well-bred Paul Messara-trained colt related to Group 2 winner Rekindled Interest, has had three starts for three placings including a close second in the Group 3 Spring Stakes (1600m) at Newcastle on September 14
- Ambidexter ($6.50 Luxbet): Peter Snowden’s Commands colt won the Listed Ming Dynast Handicap (1400m) at Warwick Farm at the start of the month, ran third in the Spring Stakes last start, no excuse, perhaps better suited to Randwick track
- Darci Be Good ($7.50): Generous price for Bede Murray’s colt who beat many of their Spring Champion rivals in the Spring Stakes last Wednnesday, is a dual stakes winner over the mile and should step up in distance well
- Just The Tonic ($8.50): Gai Waterhouse-trained Redoute’s Choice gelding with plenty of potential, ran fourth in the Spring Stakes but was drawn awkwardly, distance a query at this stage of their prep but has breeding and class
