The 2018 Sirenia Stakes betting tips given by Horsebetting.com experts say the progressive Quiet Endeavour is worth a wager to land the 6f Group 3 juvenile event at Kempton Park on Saturday, 8 September. Konchek is the top-rated in the line-up, so feared most for Clive Cox, while Junius Brutus looks each-way value. Read our 2018 Sirenia Stakes betting tips preview for more on this competitive two-year-olds only race.You could be Ontoawinner with Quiet Endeavour in Sirenia StakesIn-form Lambourn handler Archie Watson has an improving type on his hands in Quiet Endeavour, so he looks worth backing to land the Group 3 Sirenia Stakes for juveniles over 6f on the all-weather at Kempton this Saturday (16:25). This colt is by Society Rock out of an Exceed And Excel mare and boasts an impressive four wins from five outings over the trip.
Quiet Endeavour was only fifth on debut over the flying 5f at Beverley, but it looks a useful little race given the runner-up Vange came out and won by seven lengths next time out. The third home Moojim, meanwhile, was beaten just a neck by tough juvenile cookie Ginger Nut in the Newbury Super Sprint Stakes and that gives the form a solid look.
Given Quiet Endeavour has also been out and won three times on the all-weather, including over course and distance, plus a nursery handicap at Chester, he has certainly come on for his debut run. The penny dropped at the third time of asking when he landed a novice auction stakes by 3 1/4 lengths at Chelmsford and followed-up at the same venue by an even bigger winning margin.
The Ontoawinner syndicate clearly have a progressive type on their hands here. Regular jockey Edward Greatrex missed the ride on Quiet Endeavour when he ran out a 2 3/4 lengths in another nursery handicap here at Kempton when last in action, but returns in the saddle and is in decent form himself.
Those are an obvious pluses and, with only 5lb to find on official ratings with Konchek, he looks a real value bet to land a five-timer here. Although this demands more, Quiet Endeavour thus appeals most among our 2018 Sirenia Stakes betting tips for a yard that continues to be among the winners.Konchek sets standard and feared on downgradeClive Cox also has his yard in fine fettle and the aforementioned Konchek has been mixing it in Group 2 company of late, so commands respect and is feared most now eased in grade. This son of Lethal Force landed his debut in a 5f Newmarket maiden before going down just half-a-length when third to Vintage Brut in a Listed contest at Sandown.
Connections then sent Konchek to Royal Ascot where he was a two-length fifth to Shang Shang Shang and never a true threat to the leaders. He was then bested by red-hot favourite Advertise in the July Stakes at Newmarket, but chased him home and the winner has since landed a Group 1 over in Ireland to give the form a solid look.
Konchek was bidding to make it third time lucky at Group 2 level when last in action, but was only fourth and beaten 1 1/2 lengths by smart Aidan O’Brien colt Land Force in the Richmond Stakes at Glorious Goodwood. You can see how he has been knocking on the door and a drop in grade may bring about the win sought.
On what he has actually achieved, however, a mark of 106 is plenty for Konchek to live up to. Regular partner Adam Kirby is booked to ride at Haydock, leaving a change of jockey with Hector Crouch taking over in the saddle.
While the juvenile form Konchek brings to the table sets a clear standard, there are reasons enough to think he may be vulnerable to an improver. Although he’s feared, we’re taking him on in our 2018 Sirenia Stakes betting tips.Junius Brutus an each-way alternativeOne such type could be Ralph Beckett’s French import Junius Brutus, who looks unexposed at the trip after a sole win over it last time out. Having won his first two career outings, this Cockney Rebel colt came over to contest the Listed 5f Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot when in the care of Matthieu Palussiere and was far from disgraced when a 3 1/2 lengths sixth to Soldier’s Call.
He was bought by King Power Racing and sent to his current handler. Connections then decided to make the big jump from 5f to 7f straight away and pitched Junius Brutus into Group 2 company for the Vintage Stakes, yet this looked too much too soon as he was beaten over 15 lengths when 10th to Dark Vision.
Junius Brutus should get that trip in time on breeding but, when dropped back to the 6f of this in the Hornblower Conditions Stakes at Ripon, it was no surprise to see him resume winning ways. He led two from home and was driven out to score decisively by 1 1/2 lengths.
As with Quiet Endeavour above, this does demand more but the assessor has had his now and awarded Junius Brutus an opening mark of 99 that shouldn’t be beyond him. It puts him in the mix here, so he rates an each-way alternative to those rated above him.Your Next Bet
