Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes Form Guide

The Sir Rupert Clarke form guide has been easy in recent years given favourites have made a habit of taking out this event. 

In the last five years three favourites have registered wins in the race, and Victorian champion jockey Craig Williams has made this race his own.

The man they call "Willo" has recorded five wins in the last decade in the Sir Rupert Clarke, which means backing Williams is a solid investment in this Group 1.
