Chetwood has been backed into $3.10 favouritism in 2016 Cameron Handicap betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of Le Romain ($3.20) and His Majesty ($7).

Will Chetwood justify his resounding favouritism amongst punters and win the 2016 Cameron Handicap, or will one of his rivals post an upset?

1st

Mount Nebo ($13)

Consistent performer Mount Nebo should relish the conditions of the race and represents terrific value for money at current 2016 Cameron Handicap odds of $13 for success. Returning to racing this time for second in the Listed June Stakes (1100m), Mount Nebo has continued to impress on his way towards consecutive third place finishes in the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Show County Quality (1200m) most recently. The Dubawi gelding appears as though he will relish a step up to 1500m and is drawn well with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle, particularly with only 54kgs in tow.

2nd

Chetwood ($3.10)

Chetwood is another runner that is weighted well and carries strong form into the Cameron Handicap, but has drawn wide and may require some luck in running on Friday. Capping a short debut preparation third in the Listed Gosford Guineas (1200m) on March 24th, the Exceed And Excel gelding is yet to taste anything but success this time, having taken out each of the #TheRaces BM72 (1250m) and TAB Rewards BM78 (1350m) in August. In-form hoop Tim Clark will take the ride on Chetwood third-up and will only add to the four-year-old’s claims on the Cameron Handicap crown.

3rd

Le Romain ($3.20)

Le Romain has been charged with carrying a race-high 59kgs in the Cameron Handicap, but his class suggests that he’ll be right in the finish of the Group 3 race; particularly after drawing barrier 3. Running second in each of the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) upon debuting to black type racing in autumn, the Hard Spun gelding broke through for a maiden win at the highest level in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) on March 5th. Le Romain has placed second in each of the Group 3 Show County Quality (1200m) and Group 2 Tramway Handicap (1400m) this time and will be partnered by Christian Reith on Friday.
