In-Depth runner by runner preview + Tips

1.BUFFERING

Champion old timer, now 9, who is a previous winner of this race in 2013.

Given no peace at all in front in the Moir and was unable to lead so that was the end of his chances. Wound up running a battling 5th.

Stable says he’ll be fitter for this assignment and there doesn’t look much speed on paper to challenge him for the lead.

Always a winning chance if able to dictate.

ODDS: $11.00 — BACK NOW

manikato_732x249

2.CHAUTAUQUA

The world’s best sprinter.

Plenty are lining up to knock him because of his 1st up effort and perceived bad barrier draw of 1. If you look closely at his Moir run though he was steaming home the last 50m and just couldn’t go with the speed over 1000m, he was run off his legs.

He gets to 1200m now with a run under his belt and is perfectly suited.

Jockey will just need to get clear galloping room when the times right and he’ll power over the top of them.

ODDS: $2.50 — BACK NOW

3.LUCKY HUSSLER

Multiple Group 1 winning 7 year old including winning the Group 1 William Reid over this track & distance.

Wound up ok late 1st up from well back in a pleasing effort.

Doesn’t usually figure 2nd up but he loves the track and flies over the 1200m.

Master trainer Darren Weir is sure to have him primed and is certainly a winning hope.

ODDS: $12.00 — BACK NOW

racing_d400g600_728x210

4.UNDER THE LOUVRE

Won the Group 1 Stradbroke earlier this year with a big pull in the weights vs Black Heart Bart to shake off the “non winner” tag.

His three Spring runs have been good but rather typical, running on well without winning, and they’ve been in easier grade than this.

I think he’s had his birthday in the Stradbroke and I for one would be very surprised if he won again here.

ODDS: $23.00 — BACK NOW

manikato_732x249

5.REBEL DANE

Still as honest as ever but his winning days are a thing of the past. Can’t have him especially in this grade of race.

ODDS: $51.00 — BACK NOW

racing_d400g600_728x210
6.THE QUARTERBACK

Brilliant return win in the Group 2 Gilgai, this bloke has really taken his game to a whole new level since his Autumn campaign that was highlight by a terrific win in the Newmarket Handicap where he beat all comers including Chautauqua.

Drawn out but that won’t matter as he’ll drift back from the gate anyway.

He’s top shelf now and a win wouldn’t shock. Keep him in all your multiple betting!

ODDS: $15.00 — BACK NOW

img_4429

7.JAPONISME

Multiple Group 1 placegetter whose two runs back this prep have both been very average in easier class.

Waller wouldn’t have him here if he wasn’t going better than what he showed in those two outings, I’m sure but he needs to go to a career best rating to even be competitive in this.

Happy to risk.

ODDS: $31.00 — BACK NOW

manikato_732x249

8.FELL SWOOP

Very good running home 1st up in the Group 2 Schillaci.

He’s clearly very talented as his race record indicates but he’s yet to stamp himself as a genuine Group 1 WFA horse at this stage of his career.

Expecting him to put in his usual honest effort but he’ll he to take his rating to a clear career best rating to be winning or even getting close here, but he’s early a crack at the big time.

Place only.

ODDS: $11.00 — BACK NOW

9.HOLLER

Flies fresh.

His form in the Autumn was terrific winning a Group 2, a Group 1 and finishing a nostril 2nd in another Group 1.

The form out of those races isn’t what I’d say is A grade but he beat what was presented to him on the day.

Has since been to Royal Ascot where he flopped but as many can attest to travelling to the other side of the globe for a race isn’t easy. So I’d put that down as a forget.

Loves the Valley. Definitely in with a winning chance.

ODDS: $11.00 — BACK NOW

10.ENGLISH

Terrifically talented mare who was brilliant in the Autumn, highlighted by a Group 1 WFA win in the highly rated All Aged Stakes at Randwick, beating home Black Heart Bart.

Two runs back have been pretty average for mine and I don’t think she’s going as well as she was in the Autumn.

On her best you’d have to include her but she’d have to turn it all around to be a player in this.

ODDS: $9.50 — BACK NOW

racing_d400g600_728x210

11.CAPITALIST

Magic Millions / Golden Slipper winning champion 2 year.

Has had two runs back and has been only very average on both occasions in 3 year old grade.

Huge doubts linger over how well he’s come back as a 3 year old in my mind and I’ve been a massive fan of the horse since the outset.

3 year olds have been terrific against the older horses in Stakes grade so far this season, suggesting it’s a strong crop. But he needs to find his Golden Slipper winning form to be any factor here.

ODDS: $6.50 — BACK NOW

GROUP 1 CHAIRMAN’S SPRINT PRIZE TRACK WORK NOTES

BUFFERING (AUS)

Galloped 1200m on the turf course under work rider Melanie Sharpe in 1m 25.6s (400m splits: 33.0, 29.1, 23.5).
Trainer Robert Heathcote said: “Very happy with his work. Nice blow out and Melanie (Sharpe) gave him the thumbs up. It was a bit warm out there and we galloped quite late in the morning, after waiting for the trials to finish, but it didn’t bother him. Coming from Queensland, he’s used to the humidity.”

 

 

CHAUTAUQUA (AUS)

Galloped 1000m on the turf course under work rider Britt McDonald in 1m 02.3s (200m splits: 15.4, 13.2, 12.4, 10.9, 10.4)
Co-trainer John Hawkes said: “He worked really well. I’m sure the sectionals will be quick but really the time is immaterial with a horse like this. We know he can run time. He’s got a massive stride and he really lowers himself, like a Ferrari, when he’s at full stretch. It’s more about how he pulls up; he had a bit of a blow but he’s fine, perfect. He sweated up but that’s no issue. It’s a natural function of exercise in the warm weather. It’s only a worry if they sweat up and they’re all revved up but he’s perfectly relaxed.”

 

 

DIVINE BOY (HK)

Big-race jockey Derek Leung partnered Divine Boy in a 1050m all-weather (wet/slow track) barrier trial this morning and passed the post three lengths in front in a time of 1m 01.77s.
Jockey Derek Leung said: “He felt good, he’s fit and everything’s well. It was an easy trial, he was better than them and it was all smooth. It was a good work out for the weekend, so hopefully he will run well.”

 

 

GOLD-FUN (HK)

Galloped 1200m on the all-weather track in 1m 24.0s (33.4, 27.4, 23.2), in company with Shining Champion.

 

LUCKY BUBBLES (HK)

Worked 400m (turf track) in 24.6s under Brett Prebble.

 

 

MONGOLIAN SATURDAY (USA)

Jockey Douglas Whyte galloped the gelding yesterday morning.
“I sat on him yesterday and he worked nicely. He likes to do things his own way; he wants to do everything a bit quickly. But he’s settled in nicely and I’m glad he came in early – he’s gelled into the place.”

 

 

NOT LISTENIN’TOME (HK)

Trainer John Moore said: “He’ll work on grass Thursday morning. You just don’t know after a horse travels, he’s given every indication since Dubai that he’s fine but you just don’t know until they race.”

INTERVIEW: Tommy Berry on Chautauqua’s hopes

TOMMY BERRY GETS INTERVIEWED ABOUT THE CHANCES OF CHAUTAUQUA!

 

TRACK GALLOP VIDEOS: Chautauqua & Buff in great shape

Chautauqua and Buffering, Australia’s representatives for the Chairman’s Sprint Prize in Hong Kong, continue to thrive ahead of the race.

Chautauqua has allayed any fears his trainers might have had over his ability to cope with his first overseas trip.

Michael Hawkes is in charge of the champion sprinter in Hong Kong while his father John and brother Wayne look after the stables at home in Australia.

 

 

Chautauqua is the world’s highest-ranked sprinter after his second TJ Smith Stakes win earlier this month.

He arrived in Hong Kong last week to prepare for the Chairman’s Sprint Prize on Sunday and Hawkes said he had settled in well.

“It’s great to see him so relaxed,” Hawkes said.

“He does have a mind of his own and he likes to be left alone.

“He’s that sort of horse and he can be a bit on edge at times but here he’s really settled.

“The biggest thing is the climate but it was cooler the first couple of days after he arrived and I think that helped.

“Having the extra week here has been beneficial.”

Chautauqua had a light canter on the all weather track on Monday ahead of a gallop a day later.

Among his opponents on Sunday is Buffering who is now an old hand at the travel caper.

The veteran sprinter has made many trips from his Brisbane home to Melbourne and Perth and more recently travelled to Dubai where he won the Al Quoz Sprint in March.

His trainer Robert Heathcote said he had maintained his fitness and everything had gone smoothly.

“He’s feeling good,” Heathcote said.

“He pranced on to the track this morning so you know he’s full of himself.

“We’ve just got to keep him ticking over.”
