Sistema Stakes Form Guide & Tips


1. Dynastic (Best Bet – $2.10) Bet @ Sportsbet

Te Akau could have a mortgage on the Sistema Stakes and leading the charge is last-start winner Dynastic.

The two-year-old colt by Almanzor finished second on debut before winning impressively at Ellerslie in the Karaka Million.

That form stacks up well at this level and he gets every chance off the inside draw with Opie Bosson in the saddle.

2. Alabama Gold ($13) Bet @ Sportsbet

Alabama Gold scored a breakthrough win at Matamata last start and he has been specked at odds.

The son of Turn Me Loose did it comfortably by 3.8 lengths, so he clearly has a fair amount of gas in the tank.

He’s facing a harder field here, but we wouldn’t leave him out of first four selections.

3. Sacred Satono ($51) Bet @ Sportsbet

It’s tough to back a runner who has yet to win a race. He’s facing a stellar field at Group 1 level, so he’d need to improve to win.

He finished 11.7 lengths behind Dynastic in the Karaka Million, and although he should finish closer on Sunday, he shouldn’t make an impression.

4. Desert Lightning ($51) Bet @ Sportsbet

The son of Pride of Dubai scored a narrow win on debut at Ruakaka before running 5.3 lengths behind Alabama Gold.

We’re not sure if that’s the right form line to be winning at Group 1 level, so we’re prepared to leave him out of selections.

5. Maven Belle ($2.30) Bet @ Sportsbet

Maven Belle is the biggest danger to stablemate Dynastic and it’s a must-include in selections.

The Richards-trained filly is unbeaten after three starts and she was too tough for them when winning by 2.5 lengths at Matamata.

She hasn’t been tested about horses like Dynastic, so facing the boys is harder. However, she’s a smart filly who demands respect.

6. I Choose You (Best Each Way – $10) Bet @ Sportsbet

I Choose You is the third Richards-trained runner and we like the double-figure odds available.

The filly by I Am Invincible ran third behind Maven Belle last start and she’s good enough to bridge the gap.

Her effort to finish third behind Wolverine is an excellent form guide and she can’t be left out at the price.

7. Lickety Split (Best Roughie – $14) Bet @ Sportsbet

Lickety Split won narrowly on debut when the track played into her hands, but it was still a tough effort.

She could kick on with the job and run a big race, so the odds are worth taking on an each-way basis. It could also pay to watch for late betting moves.
