Roman Consul Stakes Betting

When getting ready to have a bet on the Roman Consul Stakes at a trusted online bookmaker such as bookmaker.com.au or Ladbrokes.com.au, one of the top tips is to check out the form of the runners in earlier three-year-old races at the Carnival.

Good lead-up races to the Roman Consul Stakes that can serve as an excellent betting and form guide include the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Randwick in early August and the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1400m) in September.

Some of the better performing Roman Consul Stakes runners may continue their spring campaigns by heading interstate for the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and feature three-year-old events such as the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington in October.

Watching the odds available online for Roman Consul Stakes’ winners and placegetters backing up with a run in the Coolmore Stud Stakes can prove profitable.

For example, in 2009 Shellscrape won the Roman Consul and then went on to finish third in the Coolmore Stud Stakes during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Another Roman Consul Stakes betting tip is to bet against the favourite as the past two winners have gone out at generous odds. In 2009 Shellscrape was at $5 and the favourite Rothesay finished fourth, while in 2008 Montana Flyer started at $6.50 and went on to win with the $1.95 favourite Snow Alert coming in fifth.
