Azkadellia has undoubtedly found career-best form to date in 2016 and remains sole occupant of the top line of 2016 Stradbroke Handicap betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au; having firmed into a quote of $3.60 for success.

Capping a breakout 2015 campaign third in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m), Azkadellia returned to racing this year for second in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) before taking out the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m) on February 27th,

Running a close second in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) on March 12th, the Shinko King mare ran a handy third in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on Day 1 of The Championships before posting a maiden win at the highest level in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) only one week later.

Having arrived in Brisbane for second in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) a fortnight ago, Azkadellia is positioned for success in barrier 5 and will be partnered by champion hoop Damien Oliver in the 2016 Stradbroke Handicap.

Black Heart Bart has remained firm on the second line of 2016 Stradbroke Handicap betting following Wednesday’s barrier draw and arguably offers punters the best value for money at current $6 odds for success.

A former Perth galloper, Black Heart Bart has been a standout performer through his entire racing career so far, but has undoubtedly kicked up a gear since transferring to the care of Darren Weir this year.

Given little chance of success in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) first-up, Black Heart Bart mustered a huge late turn of foot to finish a close second, and returned to winning form in the Group 3 Victoria Handicap (1400m) a fortnight later.

Running on for second in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) on April 16th, the Blackfriars gelding delivered a classy field a comfortable defeat in the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) last time out on May 21st.

Counterattack has drawn awkwardly in barrier 14, but has been confirmed to be partnered by Joao Moreira and is worth consideration for a bet at 2016 Stradbroke Handicap odds of $7.

Running third in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at the conclusion of his strong 2015 campaign, Counterattack returned this time for third in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) on February 6th.

Running fifth in the Listed Darby Munro (1200m) on March 19th, the Redoute’s Choice colt ran an agonizingly-close second in the Group 2 Arrowfield Sprint (1200m) and arrived in Brisbane for a scintillating win in the Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) three weeks ago.
