William Reid Stakes 2017 Field

Race Time: 8:00 pm
March 24, 2017

1200m Race at Moonee Valley racecourse

1. Rebel Dane (7)
J: Ben Melham
T: Gary Portelli
W: 58.5kg
Prediction: 6th
Odds: $9.50
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: High class sprinter that wasn't due to race until the TJ, but has come back so well they had to run here. If the breaks go his way, he'll be a tough one to hold out.
2. Flamberge (1)
J: Brad Rawiller
T: Darren Weir
W: 58.5kg
Prediction: 3rd
Odds: $15
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Won this race last year. Forget his Oakleigh Plate run because the seven day back up was against him. Draws a lovely gate here, Rawiller remains on and he loves the Valley.
3. The Quarterback (12)
J: Matthew Allen
T: Robbie Griffiths
W: 58.5kg
Prediction: 12th
Odds: $21
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Only way he will win is if they go stupid in front and he ambushes. I don't see that happening here. Too much to do from the gate.
4. Japonisme (2)
J: Glyn Schofield
T: Chris Waller
W: 58.5kg
Prediction: 10th
Odds: $18
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Here dodging the wet in Sydney. First up run behind Le Romain was just so so, but he draws to get a suck run behind them, and on his day, we know he is high class.
5. Hooked (11)
J: Craig Williams
T: Robert Smerdon
W: 58.5kg
Prediction: 11th
Odds: $35
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: 1400m back to 1200m...don't think so, even though the fresh effort was more than encouraging.
6. Rock Magic (6)
J: Jarrad Noske
T: Chris Gangemi
W: 58.5kg
Prediction: 9th
Odds: $9.00
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: WA visitor who has a lethal turn of foot when produced. The worry I have with him is the weather. If we get a rain affected track, his chances are pretty much done.
7. Kuro (13)
J: Corey Brown
T: Joseph Pride
W: 58.5kg
Odds:

COMMENT: Scratched
8. Illustrious Lad (8)
J: Hugh Bowman
T: Peter Gelagotis
W: 58.5kg
Prediction: 2nd
Odds: $13
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Bashed inside and out in the Newmarket so forget he went around. Sticky gate for him, but gets the services of Bowman which is a big tick.
9. Kaepernick (4)
J: TBC
T: Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes
W: 58.5kg
Prediction: 7th
Odds: $19
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Not sure if WFA is his go, but I thought there was alot of merit to his effort in the Oakleigh Plate against the tempo. He draws to stalk and perhaps have the last say.
10. Hellbent (5)
J: Damian Lane
T: Darren Weir
W: 58.5kg
Prediction: 1st
Odds: $7.00
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Dodged the Newmarket to be saved for this. Oakleigh Plate run was enormous and Sheidel franked that in the Newmarket. Bursting to win a Group l and he gets his chance here.
11. Sheidel (9)
J: Blake Shinn
T: David & B Hayes & T Dabernig
W: 56.5kg
Prediction: 4th
Odds: $5.00
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: A Moreira special got her home in the Oakleigh Plate. Then went to the Newmarket and ran a beauty behind stablemate Redkirk Warrior. Maps well here and will take some stopping.
12. Silent Sedition (10)
J: Ms Katelyn Mallyon
T: Andrew Noblet
W: 56.5kg
Prediction: 8th
Odds: $8.00
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: 1500m to 1200m is a near impossible task at Group l level. I'm going to assume this will clean the cobwebs out for the Coolmore Legacy. Happy to watch her.
13. Star Turn (3)
J: TBC
T: Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes
W: 56kg
Prediction: 5th
Odds: $4.40
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: He isn't going to get many more chances to snare that Group l. Had his chance in the Newmarket but still ran a beauty behind Redkirk Warrior. He draws to lead/stalk Sheidel.
