Despite facing a sharp class rise, Southern Lad is the short priced elect for the feature at Randwick this Saturday, the Carrington Stakes (1400m).
The John O’Shea trained galloper steps up to 1400m after bolting up over 1200m two weeks ago at Randwick. Good test for him but is fancied in early markets, sitting as a $2.60 favourite.
Redouble and Sambro, with the latter already scratched from the Sunshine Coast, are on the second line of betting at $7.50. Passage Of Time has eased half a point from $8.
