Weekly Expert Betting Tips - Join our free mailing listIn the pick of Saturday's horse racing is the $125,000 Group Three Bletchingly Stakes at Caulfield - and one horse in particular is attracting plenty of positive vibes.
I Am Invincible has been given a thumbs-up by Betfair's Kristen Manning and a strong seal of approval by trainer Peter Morgan.
If the sprinter gets a win on Saturday it will be his fourth victory in five starts, and could see his odds shrink between now and race day.
Appearing at Caulfield on July 18, he won the 1,100m Monash Stakes after flagging at one stage of the race.
Quoted by AAP, Morgan said: "He's had 11 starts and hasn't had any problems apart from last start when he was just a bit fresh and moving his head around," the trainer said.
"When they are being held they think `do I go or not' and he's a quiet horse."
The five-year-old should "gain the lead easily from barrier four and it will be very hard for his rivals to catch him" Betfair's Manning adds.
Saturday's field will also include the likes of Bel Mar, Mr Baritone and Orange County.
Earlier this week Peter King said he was happy with his ride Let Go Thommo, also appearing on Saturday.
The race will be the first time jockey and horse have appeared together since the pair won the 1,200m Group Two Carlyon Stakes, Moonee Valley, in January last year.
Betting on Thursday sees I Am Invincible at 3.00, Berl Mer at 3.65 and Orange County at 5.50 with Centrebet.
