The Melbourne Mail - September 22

The Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes is one of the best betting races on the calendar and this year there is a bumper betting card around it.
As always, the chances run deep in the Rupert Clarke, with the vast majority of the field coming off strong last start efforts.
A mix of formlines, including a little bit of international flavour, make it a truly interesting race that is sure to have a wide range of opinions going
That leads to great betting and one that we are keen to have running for us at the early quote is Fastnet Tempest.
He posted a cracking effort first-up in a high-rating race and the form has been working out well. A win over leading market chance Land Of Plenty at the course and distance just a couple of starts back is another positive and we don't need to many ticks to be having something on him at quotes around 25-1.
For our best on the card we will roll back to race five, an 5 1⁄2 f handicap, where Whypeeo appeals second-up off a return run that was probably better than it looked.
There he matched motors with Ball Of Muscle who has since gone to Sydney and won The Shorts - so the form has a warm look about it - and he looks really well handicapped back to much lesser company now.
His second-up run last time around was a cracker behind Champagne Cuddles in a Group 3 in Brisbane and a repeat of that would see him take a power of stopping from the minimum here.
