Yesterday’s Songs ($3.70) has returned to racing in typically competitive form this time and maintains position on the top line of 2015 DC McKay Stakes betting with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of Thermal Current ($5) Streetcar Isabelle ($5.50) and Minaj ($6).

Will Yesterday’s Songs justify favouritism and win the 2015 DC McKay Stakes, or will one of his talented rivals in the line in the clear?

1st

Thermal Current ($5)

Thermal Current returned to competition for an impressive second behind Politeness in the Listed Bel Esprit Stakes (1100m) and has been confirmed to be partnered by leading jockey Dwayne Dunn, and is therefore more than worth consideration for a 2015 DC McKay Stakes bet at current odds. securing a career total of two wins and eight minors through his 18 competitive starts, the Exceed And Excel gelding is a proven performer over track and distance, and while needing some luck from barrier 11, is weighted well for success at just 56kgs.

2nd

Spirits Dance ($13)

Spirits Dance performed well in a talent-rich barrier trial last week and arguably offers punters the best value for money in 2015 DC McKay betting markets at current $13 for success or $3.90 to finish in the first three. Posting five wins and three minors through 16 career starts, the Statue Of Liberty mare is sure to relish the conditions of the Morphettville track, is likely to receive the run of the race from the ideal barrier 2 and has been confirmed to be partnered by renowned hoop Craig Williams.

3rd

Minaj ($6)

Minaj has quickly built to the task over her two starts this time in and is a great chance of finishing in the first three in the 2015 DC McKay Stakes. Winner of the Listed Redelva Stakes (1050m) most notably through the 2014 Adelaide Autumn Carnival, the Commands mare has placed fourth in the 55 Second Challenge (955m) and second in the Mitsubishi Superscreen Handicap (1100m) so far this time and will carry a race-low 55kgs on Saturday.
