Faster Son potential giant killer in W.J. Adams Stakes

Faster Son

Can Faster Son defeat more fancied rivals and win the 2011 W.J. Adams Stakes?

The vast majority of attention and hype before this weekends W.J. Adams Stakes at Caulfield has been reserved for big names Crystal Lily and Reward For Effort. Given they have won a Golden Slipper and a Blue Diamond Stakes title respectively, the attention is certainly well deserved.

However before it is deemed a two horse race, there is an up and coming Gold Coast sprinter which is certainly worth some consideration.

The Trevor Bailey trained Faster Son has a near impeccable record, beaten just once from his seven starts.

Jockey Craig Williams rode the four year old to back-to-back wins in the spring as well as guiding him to a last start victory.

However, he is under no illusions the W.J. Adams Stakes will be a big leap in class.

“The next step is to take on these better sprinters on Saturday and find out where he fits in the mix,” he said.

If Faster Son can hold on to the form he displayed through the spring campaign there’s no doubt he’ll have a shot, but it’s a query given the short lead up.

“I trialled him last week and I was really happy the way he has come up this preparation,” Williams said.

His chances were greatly improved after drawing barrier five, with most of the big names jumping from wider gates.

This will give him an easier run to the front with his best shot to sit on or near the pace.

Punters looking for value have backed him into the $6.50 with Luxbet, but with just 53kg and a near faultless history, Faster Son is shaping as a genuine threat in this years $100,000 event.

“There will still be improvement after Saturday but I am happy with him,” Williams said.
