Happy Clapper was a standout through the recent Autumn Carnival and remains an outright $4.60 favourite in 2016 Tramway Handicap betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Capping his 2015 campaign with a gutsy win in the Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m), Happy Clapper returned to racing this year for a credible fourth in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) on March 5th.

Progressing to fifth in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m), the Teofilo gelding ran a close second to Winx in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) before finishing third in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) only one week later.

Having trialled well in the lead-up to his competitive return, Happy Clapper will leave from barrier 2 with regular hoop Brenton Avdulla in the saddle on Saturday.

Dibayani has drifted in 2016 Tramway Stakes betting markets, but interestingly remains sole occupant of the second line at a $6 quote.

Resuming this year for fourth in the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m), Dibayani arguably produced the best performance of his Australian tenure when second behind Winx in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) on February 27th.

Placing a credible fourth in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m), the Shamardal gelding ended his campaign ninth in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, and returned this time for second in the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap (1200m) on August 6th.

Drawn well in barrier 8, Dibayani will be partnered by Blake Shinn and has been charged with carrying only 55kgs in the Tramway Handicap.

Le Romain is sure to have taken plenty of benefit from his first-up run and arguably offers punters the best value for money in 2016 Tramway Handicap betting markets at a $6.50 quote for success.

Making a strong transition to black type company when third in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) on February 6th this year, the Hard Spun gelding placed second behind Press Statement in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) before turning the tables in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m).

Returning to the paddock after running seventh in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m), Le Romain ran a close second to Tycoon Tara in the Group 3 Show County Quality (1200m) first-up a fortnight ago and should prove tough to beat in the Tramway Handicap.
