Victory Stakes 2020 Tips

The Victory Stakes is one of the key lead in races to the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival. 

First run in 1980, it's been run as a group two since 1992 and from 2006, has been a six furlong event after being run over 1400m prior to that and with champions such as Swiss Ace, Rough Habit and Buffering on the honor roll, it's a race that attracts quality.

A fine field has been assembled for the 2020 Victory Stakes where Vega One is the $4.85 favourite at Sportsbetting.com.au

Victory Stakes 2020 Best Bet - Vega One @ $4.85

With a highly controversial Sunshine Coast return on April 25 and following that, a fourth placed effort in the BRC Sprint at Doomben now under his belt, this four-year-old has a nice flatform to now launch off here and in the Group One Stradbroke.

He's already qualfied for that June 6 feature via taking out "The Gateway" in 2019 and with this race carrying no weight penalty towards that, the Tony Gollan camp won't be flirting with form now and a win leading in would be ideal 

The bigger expanses of Eagle Farm are much more to Vega One's liking and with star veteran Queensland hoop Jim Byrne taking the reins, Vega One can pounce as the best bet in the 2020 Victory Stakes.

Victory Stakes 2020 Value Bet - Freddie Fox Trot @ $24.00

I'm a little suspect on his class here versus such a strong field, however all you can do is win and that he has done with back-to-back victories at the Gold Coast in the lead-up to the Victory Stakes and the form has stood around I Love You Lucy from two back, who won at listed level last week.

Versus many of these that don't exactly win out of turn, fitness and confidence could take this son of Foxwedge a long way here and right now, he's going as well as he ever has.

Freddie Fox Trot drops 2.5kg off them recent efforts and drawing to lob handy from barrier two, he's well worth consideration for the roughie or exotic players.
