Race 7 - INGLIS VILLIERS STAKES


Race Card  |  Speed Map    

Our feature for the day, the G2 Villiers Stakes over the Randwick mile. Tempo from CABEZA DE VACA, DARK EYES along with perhaps TESTASHADOW, RED EXCITEMENT (listen for tactics) and HOPFGARTEN should make sure it's a FAIR temp, on the steady side if anything. INTERLOCUTER is a good horse that finally has a good horse's handicap rating, the mark of 99 which he runs off here a full 3.5kg higher than last start. That brings him back to a field that is already very even. TESTASHADOW and MISTER SEA WOLF were good over 1500m last start, but both liked the soft conditions, RED EXCITEMENT running on impressed and MIGHTY LUCKY not far off. Queenslanders CRACK ME UP (tough, hits the line) and HOPFGARTEN in the mix. EMBLEY has the weight and barrier to sneak into the finish too. [updated Saturday 9am]

Ran on for another 2400m win last start in the City Tatts Cup before a freshen, rating 109 [RACE RATING 113]. Only 10th of 10 in recent trial. Maybe not here.
This DISTANCE on a GOOD track is not the right conditions for him now he is on such a high weight.
Here for a warm-up not a win.

Adaptable type that ran on well for 3rd to TESTASHADOW in G3 Festival Stakes on SOFT over 1500m, rating 107 [RACE RATING 113]. Talented miler in the mix.
Coming to a GOOD track is a positive for him, a horse that is racing well with cover in the run. Can improve on last run and win this.
G Ryan is a genius trainer and he is liking this guy. In the Quaddie.

Found the box seat and fought on OK when 2nd to Cantbuybetter over 1600m last start, rating 107 [RACE RATING 115]. Sydney form generally stronger, but can figure.
Had a pefect POSITION IN RUN, which probably won't be matched from barrier 14 this time. Will need luck.
He ran 5th in this race last year from the same barrier. Trifecta player.

Fought on best to win Festival Stakes over 1500m on SOFT, rating 104 [RACE RATING 112]. Up in weight coming to drier ground. In the mix.
Has an ability to tough it out at this stage in his career so back to firm GOOD track may not be ideal. Perhaps a place.
Got the win last time by a fraction. Would need a good price.

Led, stayed to the inside (bias against) and well beaten for 8th to TESTASHADOW last start over 1500m. Previous win good, rating well. Can win.
A better POSITION IN RUN and perhaps a more senior JOCKEY are both positives for this horse who must still have some SCOPE to improve.
Reckon Rach King had a shocker last start. Getting on with Joshie Parr.

Solid performer that wasn't far off TESTASHADOW last start over 1500m, rating 101 [RACE RATING 113]. Right around the mark. Each-way or place.
Back to GOOD may be a positive for a horse that is usually quite RELIABLE. Getting deep into STAGE OF PREP though, which is some concern.
Legend of a horse you've got to put a couple of bucks on.

Ran on solidly for 4th to Cantbuybetter over 1600m, rating 101 [RACE RATING 114]. G3 winner from last prep that is weighted to go very close. Big chance.
He has a good SURGE and should enjoy a stronger tempo than last start. Gets a nice POSITION IN RUN and does have SCOPE to improve too.
Love his toughness, he's got some mustard this fellow. In all the bets.

In flying form this prep, running on best for 1900m win before freshen, rating 96 [RACE RATING 109]. Quiet trial since (3rd). Needs to step up again.
He has always had great SCOPE to keep improving, perhaps some slight signs last start he is reaching his mark. Remains a good hope back to 1600m DISTANCE.
Boom horse that the handicapper has lumped on. Too short.

Solid win at Goulburn over 1600m when bias was in his favour. Previous form was best over 1800m+ and this is much harder. Others preferred.
He may lack the SCOPE of others to win a G2 over 1600m. Tough and RELIABLE when fit, however more a place than winning hope.
Got the luck and the prize in an easier race. No win bets from me.

Racing in consistent form, running on for 4th to Dark Eyes over 1600m last start at Goulburn. Drawn to be right in the mix for a place.
Tough, RELIABLE, GENUINE and a good place hope also. He can be ridden aggressively from the inside and still finish off.
Ready to lump a big bet on this bloke for $7 or more a place. That's value.

Nice effort first-up in Australia running on for 2nd to TESTASHADOW over 1500m, rating 99 [RACE RATING 113]. Just needs some improvement and luck from barrier.
He clearly has SCOPE to get better, the risks are the wide POSITION IN RUN and back to a firm GOOD Australian track, which he won't have seen before.
I bet he's gonna run home hard down the outside. In the Quaddie.

Not far off TESTASHADOW over 1500m last start on SOFT, rating 96 [RACE RATING 112]. Well weighted here if stays the 1600m.
The GOOD track is a positive for him, the DISTANCE is a risk. Hasn't been hitting the line lately like others have.
He's a big bet back to 1400m soon I reckon. Way down in the weights.

Got the nice inside run when 2nd to DARK EYES in the Goulburn Cup. Draws well again here, but up in grade. Place best.
The DISTANCE is a risk for this horse also, only 1 win over 1600m and not in this grade. Expecting his run to peak.
Hasn't won for a few preps now and this isn't easy.

Gets back and runs on, making ground out wider (bias helped) when not far off TESTASHADOW last start. Previous form a level below these.
His POSITION IN RUN worked out very well last start. The GOOD track may help, however it is hard to see him doing much better.
Gets back and needs luck. Not my style.
