After a game second over the Randwick mile last time out, the Pat Farrell trained Alliterate has been the best backed runner with Sportsbet.com.au to take out the Wakeful Stakes (2000m) this Saturday at Flemington.
The daughter of Al Maher ran along in front that afternoon at Randwick and she gave a really good kick in the straight, but couldn’t quite hold out the finish of Bezel, who goes around as a leading contender in the Carbine Club. Alliterate opened at $15 before punters stepped in backing her into $9.00, and the support should be respected.
Favourite for the race is Tiamo Grace at $3.80 and has been slightly easy. Sebring Dream ($4.40-$5.00) has been an early drifter while Pretty Punk ($5.50-$5) has been met with some support.
