One of the three Group 1 features on a bumper AJC Australian Derby Day programme at Randwick for Saturday is the $500,000 Group 1 Inglis Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) and below are essential form guide facts and field statistics on the two-year-olds’ feature.
The 2011 AJC Inglis Sires Produce Stakes will run as Randwick Race 6 at 3:00pm (AEST) and following the early scratching of #1 Smart Missile from the field, there are 11 promising juveniles engaged to face off.
Anthony Cummings’ colt Smart Missile was also the favourite of the AJC Sires Produce field.
Following his withdrawal from the race, Bart Cumming’s last-start winner Do You Think firmed in from $5.50 to the $3.70 favourite.
Closing in on Do You Think in the Sires Produce Stakes odds is Golden Slipper third placegetter Elite Falls whose price has been slashed from $6 into $3.90.
Other runners at a single-figure price to become this year’s AJC Sires Produce Stakes winner are Peter Snowden’s Exceed And Excel colt Helmet ($7 into $5.50) and the Gai Waterhouse-trained filly Shared Reflections ($13 into $9).
It is important to look at the field and form guide facts and stats to reveal where the best value is at in the markets for the AJC Sires Produce as well as assess the chances each runner has of success by evaluating their recent runs, barrier draw and the historical data on the race.
