Prince Of Brooklyn has experienced huge attention from punters in 2015 McNeil Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au and remains clear $3.20 favourite as a result, ahead of Ready For Victory ($4.40) and Stream Ahead ($6.50).

Will Prince Of Brooklyn justify favouritism and win the 2015 McNeil Stakes, or will one of his many talented rivals find the line in the clear?

1st

Top Me Up ($11)

Top Me Up has returned to racing in great condition this time, will relish a step-up to 1200m and is more than worth consideration for a bet at 2015 McNeil Stakes odds of $11. Running second in the Listed Blue Diamond Preview (1100m) on debut, the Exceed And Excel gelding returned to the paddock after placing fourth in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m), and will carry exceptional form into the McNeil Stakes after placing second in the Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield a fortnight ago.

2nd

Prince Of Brooklyn ($3.20)

Prince Of Brooklyn is yet to taste anything but success through his short racing career so far, but may need a run to find full condition this time. Debuting to racing for success in the Group 3 National Stakes (1200m) on May 16th, the Magnus colt returned to the paddock after taking out the Elvstroem Classic (1300m) three weeks later. Having trialled well in the lead-up to his racing return, Prince Of Brooklyn will leave from the ideal barrier4 on Saturday.

3rd

Stoker ($14)

Stoker has been luckless in his two starts since returning to competition this time, and offers exceptional value for money at current $14 odds to win the 2015 McNeil Stakes, or $4.10 to finish in the first three. Performing well amongst notable company upon debuting to racing in autumn, Stoker beat a handy field to the line in the $250,000 Inglis Premier (1000m) on February 7th before placing a credible seventh in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) after missing the jump. Having run on for fifth in the Vain Stakes, Stoker will leave from barrier 6 with Blake Shinn aboard on Saturday.
