Complacent more than stamped his claims as a horse to following through the 2015 Spring Carnival when posting a huge upset in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) last start and remains outright $3.40 favourite in 2015 Hill Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au as a result.

Complacent was a standout amongst his own age group through the 2013 edition of the Spring Carnival; his campaign highlighted wins in the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes (1800m) and Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) and a close second in the Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m).

While clearly needing the run when 12th in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) first-up this time, the Authorized entire’s most recent performance suggests he will be very hard to beat in the Hill Stakes.

Godolphin’s second entrant in the 2015 Hill Stakes, Magic Hurricane is yet to herald much interest in 2015 Hill Stakes betting markets but remains outright $5.50 second-favourite for success.

Posting four wins and as many minors through 14 career starts so far, Magic Hurricane has found great condition leading into the 2015 Hill Stakes; returning for success in the Randwick City Council BM94 (1400m).

Having progressed third in the Canterbury Hurlstone RSL Handicap (1400m) on August 15th, the Hurricane Run gelding will carry winning form into the Hill Stakes after taking out the Listed Premier’s Cup (1800m) last time out.

Punters have so-far rallied around talented Chris Waller-trained stayer Who Shot Thebarman; seeing the gelding in from an opening quote of $8.50 to current rest as outright $7 third favourite and Hill Stakes market mover.

Winner of the 2014 Group 1 Auckland Cup (3200m) before crossing to Australia for a standout spring campaign, the Yamanin Vital gelding won the Group 3 The Bart Cummings (2520m) on October 4th, and while unable to match the late pace in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) responded well when third in the Melbourne Cup (3200m).

Returning in autumn this year for fifth in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m), Who Shot Thebarman continued to impress in running fourth in both the Group 3 Sky High Stakes (2000m) and Group 1 The BMW (2400m) before running an agonizingly-close second in the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m).
