One of Australian racing’s toughest campaigners, Godolphin’s eight-year-old will be looking to add a fifth Group 1 crown to his bulging trophy cabinet. A strong second placing in the inaugural All Star Mile showed that the old boy still has what it takes to mix it with younger and perhaps more fancied rivals.

shillelagh.jpeg

Just one of many stars in the Chris Waller mega-stable. Has won over the mile at Group 1 level in each of the last two Melbourne Cup Carnivals. These include the Cantala Stakes in 2017 and the Empire Rose Stakes in 2018. Has what it takes and knows how to get it done at the highest level. Drops back from 2000m to 1600m which Waller has done many a time to win a big Randwick mile. Terrific in Australia Cup, that form is superb. Ran the fastest last 800m/600m/400m/200m in the Group 1 Epsom carrying the exact same weight of 53kg. Goes on top at a great each way quote.

Patrick Payne’s five-year-old gelding hasn’t been tested at Group 1 level but is an ultra-consistent type who is rarely uncompetitive no matter where he races. Illustrated by his 22 finishes in the first three across 29 career starts. Solid form this prep including a strong win at Listed grade at Flemington.

Another one of Chris Waller’s stars, Unforgotten won the Group 1 Australian Oaks at the Championships last year. Has been impressive this prep without winning, with her best result a close third behind Winx in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes. Also has form behind Avilius with a fourth in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes.

lifelessordinary.jpeg

Chris Waller’s seven-year-old gelding is something on an enigma, often being difficult to get a line on. Last win was the 2018 Wagga Cup at Listed level, and before that a city win at Caulfield a further twelve months back. Comes into the Doncaster first-up from a spell.

 

 

12.Eckstein

A brave campaigner from Kurt Goldman’s stable at Goulburn, Eckstein has put plenty of impressive wins and more than $1 million in prize money on the board at five years of age. Won at Group level in the Southern Cross Stakes at Rosehill this preparation, its a big chance to take this out too.

 

 

13.Aloisia

Four-year-old mare for Ciaron Maher and David Eustace who has seen a lot of action in a relatively short career. A Group 1 winner after taking out the Thousand Guineas at Caulfield last season, Aloisia comes into the Doncaster with some patchy form, though she did run a close second in the Group 2 Villiers Stakes at Randwick.

 

 

14.Siege Of Quebec

Fastnet Rock stallion for Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott. Won at Group level in the spring, defeating the likes of Pierata to take out the Bill Ritchie Handicap over 1400 metres at Randwick. Hasn’t impressed hugely in this preparation to date.

 

 

15.Fifty Stars

A couple of fantastic wins this prep has made punters sit up and take notice of the four-year-old from the Lindsay Park stable. His prep got off to a slow start in Melbourne, but he’s arrived in Sydney in stunning style, winning the Group 2 Blamey Stakes and the Group 2 Ajax Stakes.

High rated by Chris Waller (he would know!), with the trainer marking this five-year-old mare as a potential Group 1 winner. Fared poorly in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic, finishing well down the field, but is generally a very consistent type who cannot be discounted.

 

 

17.So Si Bon

One of Australian racing’s perennial bridesmaids! So Si Bon is a regular starter in high-quality racing but unfortunately is simply a non-winner. He’s saluted the judge just twice across a 36-race career (including zero wins from twelve Group 1 starts). Having said that, he did have success relatively recently when winning the Listed Lord Stakes at Caulfield on Boxing Day.

A high-quality filly from the Lindsay Park stable. The three-year-old comes into the Doncaster with a lightweight and has had a very consistent preparation. Has finished second at Group 1 level in both her last two starts, both by less than half a length. The Doncaster will be a tough task, but she could just be due.

eldoradodreaming

Superb three-year-old filly for Kris Lees and the winner of the ATC Sires Produce at The Championships in her two-year-old season. Hugely consistent type who has placed nine times across a twelve-race career. Another who’ll hit the Doncaster full of confidence and with little weight on her back.

The Hawkes’ three-year-old colt seems to have really snuck up on the Doncaster, and only just made it into the final field. Ran second behind Winx in the George Ryder Stakes at Rosehill… and there’s no better form than Winx form. A genuine winner who has saluted three times in just six career starts.

rinerdingding.jpeg

This Edward O’Rourke trained son of Sebring lived up to his impressive trial performances by winning on debut at Rosehill in February 2018, and in doing so lowered the boom on Godolphin’s juvenile colt Wagner. The colt was then well beaten in the Group III Pago Pago Stakes before getting back on track with a decent run at Rosehill when he was never on the track but was beaten less than 2 ½ lengths by Irukandji. O’Rourke has always felt the 1400m of the Group I Inglis’ Sires would be an ideal race for the youngster and that race has been his main autumn Sydney target in 2018.
