February 9th, 2017

Black Heart Bart and Malaguerra both recorded smart first-up performances in the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) first-up a fortnight ago and the pair remain locked on the top line of CF Orr Stakes betting at Ladbrokes.com.au, at generous $4 quotes.

Black Heart Bart has been a revelation since transferring to the care of Darren Weir last autumn and the gelding appears on track for more Group 1 success this season.

Resuming in spring for a strong win in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m), the Blackfriars gelding placed second to Palentino in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) before returning to winning form in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m).

Running second to Winx in the Group 1 Ladbrokes Stakes (2000m) before failing to fire and handle the conditions in the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m), Black Heart Bart is sure to have taken plenty of benefit from his first-up run for second in the Australia Stakes and will be partnered by regular hoop Brad Rawiller.

Malaguerra has so far received the greatest share of attention in Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes betting markets; firming into his current $4 odds after opening at a $4.50 quote.

Breaking through for a maiden win at the highest level in the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) at Doomben in May last year, the Magnus gelding went to another level during the Spring Carnival; running second in the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes (1100m) and winning the Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) most notably.

Having savaged the line to win the Australia Stakes first-up, Malaguerra is primed for a big second-up run on Saturday, however there is something of a query at the distance and he will have to overcome the outside barrier.

Lucky Hussler will relish the conditions of the Ladbrokes CF Orr Stakes, is drawn ideally in barrier 4 and is more than worth consideration for a bet at current $6.50 odds.

A multiple Group 1 winner, Lucky Hussler was unlucky not to win the Orr Stakes in 2016 after being beaten by the bob of a head by Suavito.

Divine Prophet is interestingly the only other runner currently available at Labrokes CF Orr Stakes odds of less-than $10, while the likes of Arod ($18) and Turn Me Loose ($26) are more than worth consideration for a bet at current quotes.
