Chelmsford Stakes 2011 Betting Plays on a Fife

My Kingdom Of Fife continues to drum up support ahead of their opening season run in the 2011 Chelmsford Stakes at Warwick Farm on Saturday, Chris Waller’s resuming Group 1 champion well-backed to kick off their spring campaign with a win.

My Kingdom Of Fife resumes at Warwick Farm this Saturday in the Chelmsford Stakes

The former Queen-owned Kingmambo gelding is the Luxbet market firmer for the $175,000 Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m), scheduled to run as Warwick Farm Race 6 tomorrow, having shortened in from $3.80 to $3.60 in the past day.

A winner of three of their four starts last preparation, which was the now six-year-olds’ first in Australia after joining Waller’s stables, My Kingdom Of Fife is already an elite level winner down under thanks to their strong win in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick in April.

Saturday will be the 2011 Cox Plate-bound stayer’s first run at Warwick Farm, but they have had plenty of money come in for them having won first-up over the mile when taking out their Australian race debut as a 150-1 shot in the Group 3 Doncaster Mile Prelude (1600m) back on April 9.

There will be no such odds on them for their second go at the mile this weekend, however, two of Waller’s three other Chelmsford Stakes hopefuls are triple figure roughies in the markets.

My Kingdom Of Fife’s stablemates Hawk Island, Stand To Gain and Illustrious Blue are also all set to face off in the Warwick Farm feature on Saturday, Hawk Island the shortest-priced of the trio at $21 through Luxbet.

Sydney Cup winner Stand To Gain is the $151 long-shot of the field, the genuine stayer unlikely to be competitive over the mile trip, while recent acquisition Illustrious Blue is paying $101 to win and $24.53 to place.

Of eight-year-old Illustrious Blue, who failed in their opening three runs for the stable in the autumn, Waller rates them as a progressive chance throughout this year’s spring carnival.

“For an old horse he looks to be in good shape,” Waller said.

“He’s got good form in the UK so if we got that out of him he could be competitive in a race like the Metropolitan.”

The $400,000 Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) runs at Randwick on October 1 as one of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival’s biggest events.

Despite My Kingdom Of Fife’s dominance in the betting, the galloper favoured to beat the likes of dual Stradbroke Handicap winner Black Piranha and Melbourne Cup runner-up Maluckyday, Waller isn’t buying into the hype too much just yet.

“His work is similar to what it was prior to his first run for the stable but he only works like an average horse, not a superstar,” Waller admitted.

“It seems to e under race conditions that he does his best.

“Be beat weaker grade last time (in the Doncaster Mile Prelude) and whatever he does he will improve on.

“If he could finish in the top five that would be ideal.”
