Under The Louvre has returned to racing in typically excellent form this season and remains outright favourite in 2015 Moonga Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au at a quote of $2.50.

Posting eight wins and a further ten minors through 23 career starts so far, Under The Louvre returned to racing this year for a close second in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m); progressing to success in the Listed Hareeba Stakes (1200m) on March 28th.

Running second in the Listed Anniversary Vase (1400m) on April 18th, the Excellent Art entire returned to the paddock after running on for third in the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) on May 16th.

Running fifth in the Group 3 TheShark.com.au Stakes (1100m) first-up this time, Under The Louvre has since placed second in the Group 2 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m) and third in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m), and will relish a step-back in class on Saturday.

Godolphin runner Vashka is yet to herald much interest in 2015 Moonga Stakes betting markets but remains outright second favourite for success at generous $7 odds for success.

Posting five consecutive wins through an impressive summer campaign, Vashka failed to make anything of an impact in a solitary autumn start, but returned this time for third in the Group 3 Show County Quality (1200m) on August 22nd.

Unlucky to be blocked late when seventh in the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes (1300m) on September 12th, the son of Exceed And Excel will carry winning form into the Moonga Stakes after taking out the Group 2 Shannon Stakes (1500m) a fortnight ago.

Rock Sturdy has continued to receive steady support in 2015 Moonga Stakes betting markets this week; firming into outright third favouritism at current $8 odds for success or $2.60 to finish in the first three.

Performing well through a Brisbane Winter Carnival campaign highlighted by a strong run for second in the Group 3 BRC Sprint (1350m) and credible seventh in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m), Rock Sturdy returned this time for fifth in the Group 2 The Shorts (1100m) before placing seventh in the Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) last time.

Charlie Boy will need plenty of luck in running from barrier 11 but represents excellent value at 2015 Moonga Stakes odds of $9.50.
