Russian Camelot will only shorten if is he is to win or run well first-up in the Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) while a horse such as Master Of Wine will keep improving as he steps up in trip throughout his prep.

2020 Turnbull Stakes Tips

Turnbull Stakes 2020 Best Bet - Russian Camelot

He is the up and coming star of Australian racing, already having won a Group One in emphatic fashion in Adelaide last prep.

He is a Northern Hemisphere bred horse so he is still six months behind our 4YOs, but has more ability than most of them.

He managed to win second-up over 1600m last prep before stepping up to 2500m at his next start at Group One level to take out the Adelaide Derby when sitting three wide out the back and launching over the top of them.

There is some major x-factor about him and he is the horse that many punters will have on top throughout his preparation as well.

His only chink is his barrier manners, having been scratched at the gates and bombing the start multiple times.

Turnbull Stakes 2020 Next Best Bet - Master Of Wine

Another exciting prospect in the Australian staying ranks, rising to all-star class last prep when taking out the Sky High Stakes by over three lengths and running fourth to Addeybb at WFA class in the Queen Elizabeth.

I do not think he can beat the likes of Russian Camelot in this race, as I am sure the stable are not wanting to punish his Handicap as he heads to a Caulfield Cup with a low weight, but as a 1x3 bet this looks good.

His first-up run in the Winx was okay, wide and forward over 1400m did not suit, so we will get a much better guide on him over a mile at Flemington in the Makybe Diva Stakes.

Turnbull Stakes 2020 Roughie - Harlem

The two time Australian Cup winner returned well in the Memsie Stakes when finishing just over three lengths off Behemoth.

He put in a great performance second-up last prep, when arguably unlucky not to have won the Peter Young Stakes at Caulfield before finishing fourth in his third successive crack at an Australian Cup third-up.

He has always been just that one rung below the best in these big races, especially during the Spring, but at odds, he can find his way into a place when assumably third-up into the prep.
