That’s A Good Idea has continued to receive plenty of support in 2016 WJ Healy Stakes betting markets and has firmed into outright $4 favouritism with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Posting a commendable career total of nine wins and a further twelve minors through thirty-five competitive starts, That’s A Good Idea trialled well in the lead-up to his 2016 return but clearly required a run when eighth in the Listed Bel Esprit Stakes (1100m) first-up.

Progressed to third in the Listed Ortensia Stakes (1100m) at Scone on May 14th, the son of Flying Spur delivered a talented field defeat with 61kgs in tow in the Wilson Asset Management Handicap (1100m) on May 28th and should prove tough to beat from barrier 2.

Mogador has interestingly drifted in 2016 WJ Healy Stakes betting markets but remains sole occupant of the second line at a generous $4.40 quote.

Running second in the Listed Blue Sapphire Stakes (1200m) and fifth in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) most notably last spring, Mogador returned to competition this year for seventh in the Group 3 Zeditave Stakes (1200m) on February 27th.

Responding well with a strong performance for fifth in the TAB.com.au Handicap (1100m) on April 23rd, the Lonhro colt placed fourth in the Isuzu Ute Scone BM77 (1100m) before running second behind Kamacite in the Listed Queensland Day Stakes (1200m) on May 28th.

Mogador has been charged with carrying only 54kgs, will leave from the rails draw and has been confirmed to be partnered by in-form local Robbie Fradd in the WJ Healy Stakes.

Odyssey Moon has returned to racing in excellent form this time and arguably offers punters the best value for money at current WJ Healy Stakes odds of $5.50 for success.

Placing fourth in the Zeditave Stakes first-up, the Snitzel colt progressed to third in the Listed Bendigo Guineas (1400m) and second in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) on Day 1 of The Championships.

Running on for third despite an early check in the Listed Straight Six (1200m) on May 21st, Odyssey Moon will carry winning form into the WJ Healy Stakes after taking out the Ladbrokes Cash In Handicap (1300m) at Sandown on June 4th.
