2011 Silver Slipper Form Guide

#1        Diamond To Pegasus (Barrier – 7)    (56.5kgs)

Trainer – Tony Sergi    Jockey – Nathan Berry(a)

Career Stats – 3s         2w       0p

Last Start – Won at Randwick

A last start winner over this distance at Randwick and having won two from three this horse will certainly be there or there abouts. Look for him to try and work his way to the front from barrier seven and hold on from there. The weight is 2kgs more than he’s ever carried.

#2        Bossdon City (Barrier – 9)     (56.5kgs)

Trainer – Brett Cavanough      Jockey – Brenton Avdulla

Career Stats – 2s         1w       0p

Last Start – 5th at Caulfield

Has won at this track over this distance when on debut in January. Has an outside barrier draw but the bonus of having carried more weight than this previously. He’s likely to get out quick but won’t be ridden to the front unless the pace was very slow.

#3        Danger Lurks (Barrier – 11)   (56.5kgs)

Trainer – Alan Scorse              Jockey – Joshua Parr

Career Stats –  2s         0w       2p

Last Start – 3rd at Rosehill

With two starts for places this horse cannot be overlooked. Especially considering both races were won by the very impressive Karuta Queen which isn’t in this line up. The outside barrier is a worry but the weight isn’t an issue. Look for him to settle towards the back and make a move on the turn.

#4        Wild And Proud (Barrier – 12)   (56.5kgs)

Trainer – Gai Waterhouse        Jockey – Tommy Berry(a)

Career Stats – 2s         0w       2p

Last Start – 3rd at Randwick

He has had two third placing from two starts but both came against excellent quality opposition. His last start third was in the race won by Diamond To Pegasus. From the outside gate there will be no choice but to settle back and hope for a run.

#5        Straight Gold (Barrier – 2)     (56.5kgs)

Trainer – M, W and J. Hawkes            Jockey – Darren Beadman

Career Stats – 1s         1w       0p

Last Start – Won at Canterbury

Carried this weight over this distance to a first up win in his maiden race at Canterbury. The excellent barrier draw will give him every chance and the weight shouldn’t be an issue. Ridden by Dareen Beadman this horse should get the plum position one out one back.

#6        Huegill (Barrier – 13)   (56.5kgs)

Trainer – Peter Moody             Jockey – n/a

Career Stats – 1s         0w       1p

Last Start – Third at Caulfield

Third in the Blue Diamond Prelude on debut behind in form galloper Sepoy was a very impressive effort. Guaranteed to be presented well by Peter Moody Huegill was not helped by the barrier draw. Will have to wait and see if he’s ridden hard to the front or decides to settle back and hope.

#7        Alkie (NZ) (Barrier – 3)     (56.5kgs)

Trainer – Kathy O’Hara           Jockey – Jim Pender

Career Stats – 1s          0w       1p

Last Start – 3rd at Canterbury

Coming third on debut on the same race won by Straight Gold this horse will need to step up its form to challenge against this field. It does have the advantage of a good barrier draw though so will likely go to the front to give itself every chance.

#8        Karma Force (Barrier – 5)     (56.5kgs)

Trainer – Gillian Heinrich        Jockey – Glen Colless

Career Stats  –             1s         0w       0p

Last Start – 9th at Randwick

After an absolute disaster at Randwick there’s nothing to show that this horse could cause an upset in the Silver Slipper. The barrier draw has helped and there’s a good jockey on board but it would be a massive surprise if this horse figured in the placings.

#9        Satin Shoes (Barrier – 6)     (54.5kgs)

Trainer – Clarry Conners         Jockey – Hugh Bowman

Career Stats – 2s          2w       0p

Last Start – Won at Randwick

The undoubted favourite in the race after winning the Widden Stakes this filly looks in tremendous touch. She got a decent enough barrier draw and will carry a slightly smaller weight so there’s no reason this horse can’t make it three from three.

#10      Aerobatics (Barrier – 10)   (54.5kgs)

Trainer – Peter Snowden         Jockey – n/a

Career Stats –  1s         1w       0p

Last Start – Won at Randwick

Coming off a debut win the horse has done everything it could do in the shortest of careers. The step up in class will be noticeable and there’s the issue of a wide gate. The horse will drop to the tail of the field and try and run home over the top of them, something that if achieved will have many people talking.

#11      Elite Falls (Barrier – 8)     (54.5kgs)

Trainer – John O’Shea              Jockey – Christian Reith

Career Stats –  3s         1w       1p

Last Start – 2nd at Randwick

After being beaten by Satin Shoes in the Widden Stakes this is the re-match the connections were after. She’ll be starting form a similar barrier with same weight it’s anyone’s race. She’s likely to drop back deep in the field and run home strongly.

#12      Al’s Magic Miss (Barrier – 1)     (54.5kgs)

Trainer – David Payne             Jockey – n/a

Career Stats – 1s          1w       0p

Last Start – Won at Randwick

Any horse starting from barrier one with a perfect record has to be in your calculations. Sure it’s just from the one start but everything is lining up in this horses favour. Where it sits in the field is completely up to the jockey but it’ll no doubt be near the pace.

#13      Crystal Rock (Barrier – 4)     (54.5kgs)

Trainer – Anthony Cummings             Jockey – n/a

Career Starts –             0s         0w       0p

Last Start – n/a

This filly is on debut in a Group 2 so Anthony Cummings certainly see’s a lot of talent in this horse. With no form to speak of it’s always a brave man who doesn’t at least throw it in their box trifectas.
