2011 Kensington Stakes Nominations – Saturday Racing at Flemington

While there are no Group races planned for this weekend, punters can still get in on the Australian racing action with the 2011 Kensington Stakes running at Flemington Racecourse on Saturday January 22, which is the feature event of the week.

The $125,000 Listed Kensington Stakes (1000m) is one of eight races scheduled to take place at Flemington this Saturday, a good early season event before the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival kicks off at Caulfield on February 12 with the 2011 CF Orr Stakes Day.

An open sprint feature, the Kensington Stakes has attracted 18 nominations before the final field featuring a capacity 16 runners is announced Thursday January 20.

Top rated entry among the 2011 Kensington Stakes nominees is Grand Duels.

The Byron Cozamanis trained seven-year-old last ran at Caulfield on Boxing Day when claiming an impressive win in the Christmas Stakes (1200m) from a wide barrier 15 draw carrying 59kg and is vying for their third straight win on Saturday.

With a good barrier and even if allocated a hefty weight, Grand Duels will likely start at the top of the Kensington Stakes odds based on their recent good form.

Talented filly Warm Love is one of the other top-liners in this year’s Kensington Stakes entries, coming off three consecutive wins.

Prepared by owner-trainer David Brideoake, the promising Octagonal three-year-old has now won five of her 10 career starts most recently scoring a tidy three length victory in the Nouvelle Star Handicap (1000m) at Flemington on January 15.

Already a stakes winner having claimed victory in the Listed Queen Adelaide Stakes back in February last year, Warm Love has a brilliant turn of foot and natural gate speed so down the Flemington straight could be hard to beat.

Other notable runners nominated for the Listed Flemington feature include the David Payne-trained Cardinal Virtue and top stablemate Winter King who placed second to the magnificent Black Caviar in the Schillaci Stakes during the spring, Leon Corstens’ last start winner Silver Bullion, consistent Mossman gelding Stirling Grove and Crystal Mile runner-up Trader who will be ridden by Glen Boss if accepted.
