Mare Has Admirers in 2011 Tramway Handicap Betting

Grahame Begg will be heading into Saturday’s $125,000 Group 3 Tramway Handicap (1400m) with an added boost of confidence after his Group one winning mare Secret Admirer opened favourite in the Warwick Farm race eight odds.

Secret Admirer

Secret Admirer has opened favourite to win the 2011 Tramway Handicap

Despite the 2011 Tramway Handicap field having drawn the acceptance of Stradbroke Handicap winner Sincero, early Luxbet betting markets have Dubawi four-year-old Secret Admirer as the $4.60 top elect.

Secret Admirer gets her chance on Saturday to enter the winners stall for the first time since her gritty final-stride success in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at Randwick last October as a $16 outsider.

She kicked off her spring preparation on August 20 at Warwick Farm, returning in fine style with a promising second to Red Tracer in the Listed Toy Show Quality (1300m).

It was an excellent first-up run for Secret Admirer after a lengthy spell, and having made up a lot of ground late, would likely have gotten the better of the winner with another 100 metres.

Secret Admirer gets that extra distance on Saturday stepping up to 1400 metres in the Tramway Handicap, and she will again jump from barrier one having had the run on the rails first-up also.

Sincero is the Tramway Handicap second favourite at a quote of $5 through Luxbet.

Drawn well in barrier five, Stephen Farley’s impressive Umatilla gelding resumes after an upset win in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm where he defeated Peter Snowden’s ultra-consistent mare Beaded.

The now four-year-old Sincero, winner of six straight races last season, sees Warwick Farm for the first time on Saturday but is a multiple winner at Randwick and so has metro racing form in Sydney.

He also boasts an excellent record over the Tramway distance having won three of his four starts over 1400m, his only loss being on a Slow Rosehill track when 13th to Skilled in the Listed The Schweppervesence (1400m) in April last year.

Equal third favourites installed at a Tramway Handicap quote of $6.50 through Luxbet Thankgodyou’rehere and Neeson.

The Joe Pride-trained Mossman gelding Neeson has fitness on their side as they come into the Tramway third-up and on the back of a nice third at the track a fortnight ago in the Listed Show County Quality (1200m).

The Patrick and Wayne Webster-trained Thankgodyou’rehere also looks ripe for improvement after their first-up fifth in the Show County, the Secret Savings gelding having performed consistently over their entire career that is highlighted by a Group 1 second to Atomic Force in The Galaxy and a win in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) last November.

The only other hopeful at single-figure odds is the Bruce Hill-trained Startsmeup ($8), but as the fourth emergency for the Tramway is set to contest the $175,000 Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at the meeting instead.

One Tramway Handicap candidate that looks over-priced in the market and that could prove a good value tip to add into exotics on Saturday is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Tullamore at $31 to win and $8.50 to place through Luxbet.

Drawn in gate eight with Tommy Berry engaged for the ride, Savabeel five-year-old Tullamore resumes after a short winter break having won the Group 2Brisbane Cup (2400m) at Eagle Farm last start on June 11.

The trip will be a little short for Tullamore’s best this weekend, the galloper not having started at a distance shorter than a mile since February, but class can go along way and that is something this horse has plenty of.

“I’m over the moon with Tullamore, he’ll run a super race on Saturday,” Waterhouse said.

“He’s really an exciting stayer in the making.

“The 1400 metres is short of his best but it’s a nice race for him to start off in.”
