2011 Karrakatta Plate Form Guide

#1 – Benny’s Halo (Barrier – 8) (56kgs)

  • Trainer: Neville Smith
  • Jockey: Jeffrey Berry
  • Career Stats: 3s – 2w – 1p
  • Last Start: 2nd at Ascot

Only just missed out making it three from three last start in the Perth Stakes. A better barrier and equal weights could be enough to turn the tables on Rebel Call.

#2 – Rebel Call (Barrier – 15) (56kgs)

  • Trainer: Joe Byrne
  • Jockey: Paul Harvey
  • Career Stats: 1s – 1w – 0p
  • Last Start: 1st at Ascot

Beat Benny’s Halo on debut but his task is even tougher this week. An extra 2kgs, a wide gate and 100m more length could definitely turn the tables.

#3 – Fort Courage (Barrier – 14) (56kgs)

  • Trainer: Neville Parnham
  • Jockey: Brad Parnham
  • Career Stats: 4s – 1w – 1p
  • Last Start: 1st at Ascot

Comes into this race on the back of a win on this track over this distance. He’s been at great value odds in previous runs and could be worth a go if it’s the same again.

#4 – Fighters Second (Barrier – 9) (56kgs)

  • Trainer: Donna Riordan
  • Jockey: Troy Turner
  • Career Stats: 2s – 1w – 1p
  • Last Start: 1st at Bunbury

Second on debut at Ascot with a last start win at Bunbury. Tough form to read so don’t write him off.

#5 – Western Fever (Barrier – 10) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: David Harrison
  • Jockey: William Pike
  • Career Stats: 5s – 2w – 2p
  • Last Start: 2nd at Ascot

Debut was a shocker but has been brilliant since then. Had two wins leading into a second in the Gimcrack Stakes last start.

#6 – Single Spice (Barrier – 19) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: Simon Miller
  • Jockey: Peter Knuckey
  • Career Stats: 5s – 2w – 0p
  • Last Start: 14h at Ascot

Looked like a good chance in the Gimcrack but was blown off the track. The type of horse that unsettles punters but the wide gate should rule her out.

#7 – Night War (Barrier – 16) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: Simon Miller
  • Jockey: Patrick Carbery
  • Career Stats: 3s – 1w – 1p
  • Last Start: 5th at Ascot

Has finished behind Western Fever in last two runs. Can’t see her turning it around this time from barrier 16.

#8 – Flying Affair (Barrier – 13) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: Lindsey Smith
  • Jockey: Ben Kennedy
  • Career Stats: 2s – 2w – 0p
  • Last Start: 1st at Ascot

Despite barrier 13 this will be the favourite. Two from two and has beat some of these runners convincingly in the process.

#9 – Miss Safari (Barrier – 11) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: Shane Edwards
  • Jockey: Jason Brown
  • Career Stats: 4s – 1w – 1p
  • Last Start: 1th at Ascot

Won two starts back but based on last run its hard to see her competing here.

#10 – Classic Blitz (Barrier – 1) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: Mike Santich
  • Jockey: Takahide Ikenushi
  • Career Stats: 3s – 1w – 0p
  • Last Start: 9th at Ascot

Another one with a win two back but poor last start. Always be wary the horse in gate 1.

#11 – Internationalist (Barrier – 20) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: Darren Mcauliffe
  • Jockey: Shaun O’Donnell
  • Career Stats: 4s – 0w – 4p
  • Last Start: 2nd at Ascot

Form is good enough to suggest a solid run but the barrier draw has killed her.

#12 – Irma La Dane (Barrier –7) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: Ben Pearce
  • Jockey: Daniel Staeck
  • Career Stats: 2s – 1w – 0p
  • Last Start: 8th at Ascot

Won on debut but faltered in the Gimcrack. Does have better barrier and drop in weight.

#13 – Saxabelle (Barrier – 3) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: Trevor Andrews
  • Jockey: Shaun Mc Gruddy
  • Career Stats: 3s – 1w – 0p
  • Last Start: 10th at Ascot.

Yet another in the winning club on debut, but doesn’t have the speed to match this field despite an ideal barrier.

#14 – Valley Girl (Barrier – 17) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: Lou Luciani
  • Jockey: Jason Whiting
  • Career Stats: 2s – 1w – 1p
  • Last Start: 1st at Ascot

Third on debut and last start winner. Barrier makes it very tough but she’s a strong filly.

#15 – In Eden’s Honour (Barrier – 5) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: Jeremy Easthope
  • Jockey: Damian Lane
  • Career Stats: 5s – 1w – 1p
  • Last Start: 7th at Ascot

Won first up but you feel it’d take something very special to see her run away with this race.

#16 – Bim Bom Bay (Barrier – 4) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: Joe Byrne
  • Jockey: Kyra Yuill
  • Career Stats: 4s – 1w – 1p
  • Last Start: 5th at Ascot

Has won over this distance on this track but that’s the case for plenty of other runners too. Ran fifth in a much weaker race last start.

#17 – Public Perception (Barrier – 6) (54kgs)

  • Trainer: Craig Wright
  • Jockey: Duncan Miller
  • Career Stats: 3s – 1w – 1p
  • Last Start: 1st at Ascot

Hasn’t had a lot of attention but won last start and jumps from gate 6. Potential value each way bet.

  • Trainer: Daniel Morton
  • Jockey: –
  • Career Stats: 3s – 0w – 2p
