Kensington Stakes Form Guide, Tips and Betting Odds can Grand Duels Defend Flemington Turf

Can 2011 Kensington Stakes winner Grand Duels defend his title, or will Group 1 winner First Command make this Weekend Special?

These are among the key questions facing racing fans and punters when previewing the 2012 Kensington Stakes.

Kensington Stakes

The Kensington Stakes is a 1000 metre Group 4 handicap event open to horses of any age and gender.

Set to jump off this Saturday the 21st of January at 4:10pm Sydney time as race 6, the 2012 Kensington Stakes offers prize money totaling $125,000.

The featured event at the famous Flemington racecourse this weekend, the 2012 Kensington Stakes has attracted a field of eleven gallopers. A group that includes 2011 race winner the Byron Cozamanis trained Grand Duels, and the Anthony Freedman trained Commands gelding, First Command.

Kensington Stakes Odds

First Command is the Kensington Stakes odds favourite priced to win in the $4.60 range, followed by the Mark Kavanagh trained Weekend Special priced to win in the $6.00 range, and the David Balfour trained Obsidian Dragon who rounds out the top three priced to win in the $7.00 range.

As such, a free $300 ‘win bet’ available through exclusively arranged Punters Paradise Free Kensington Stakes Bets, would be worth a whopping $1,380.00 at a $4.60 price should First Command be declared the first horse past the winning Kensington Stakes post.

- The Michael Rodd ridden Weekend Special owns a 100% place-rate in seven career starts (3-4-0), is carrying 2kgs less than First Command and his trainer believes he’s in form to earn his first signature win.
