While unable to reach the racing highs assumed of his autumn campaign so far, Deep Field has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in 2015 The Galaxy betting markets; currently available at a quote of $3.90 for success with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Stamping his claims as a serious racehorse through his maiden competitive calendar in 2014, Deep Field debuted for back-to-back victories in minor winter events before returning to the paddock.

Taking out the Hyland Race Colours Handicap (1100m) upon resuming in spring, the Northern Meteor entire made a successful transition to black type racing in taking out bot the Listed Lightning (1100m) and Group 2 Salinger Stakes (1200m).

Having placed third in the Group 1 Lightning Stakes (1000m) and second in the Group 3 Maurice McCarten Stakes (1100m) despite jumping clear favourite in each this time in, the conditions of The Galaxy appear likely to play into the hands of Deep Field this weekend.

Group 1 winner Miracles Of Life returned to racing for an impressive win in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) a fortnight ago and currently registers as second-favourite for success in The Galaxy betting markets at a quote of $6.

Taking out the 2013 edition of the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m), Miracles Of Life was purchased and moved to the care of Peter and Paul Snowden prior to her 2014 spring campaign, which began with an impressive dead-heat for first alongside Bel Sprinter in the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m).

Allocated the wide and awkward barrier 14, punters may find value in adding the Not A Single Doubt mare as a selection in a 2015 The Galaxy quinella or trifecta bet.

Talented three-year-old Rubick is a proven performer amongst open competition and over the course and distance, and as a result occupies the third line of The Galaxy betting at generous $6.50 odds.

Winning each of his first two competitive starts including the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m), the son of Encosta De Lago faded late for fourth in the Blue Diamond Stakes, but returned in spring for success in the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes (1000m) first-up.

Having run a credible third in the Challenge Stakes first-up this time, Rubick will carry just 53.5kgs in The Galaxy and is a leading chance for success.
