Cameron Handicap 2011 Field & Betting

Tomorrow Newcastle Racecourse will host a bumper day’s racing headlined by the $150,000 Group 3 Patinack Farm Cameron Handicap (1500m) and its top field of spring carnival hopefuls including short-priced favourite Neeson.

Scheduled to run as Newcastle Race 7, one event after the $175,000 Group 3 Spring Stakes (1600m), the 2011 Cameron Handicap field attracted 13 gallopers with the Joseph Pride-trained Neeson topping the odds at Luxbet.

Drawn in gate nine and due to be ridden by Hugh Bowman, Mossman five-year-old Neeson is paying $3.20 in the Cameron Handicap betting at Luxbet after their three strong first-up runs around Sydney this season.

Last start they finished within two lengths of Group 1 winner Sincero when fourth in the Group 3 Tramway Handicap (1400m) at Warwick Farm on September 3, a race they took out in 2010.

“Neeson is in good shape, I won’t be making too many excuses if he doesn’t win,” Pride said.

“I’ve never won a feature race at Newcastle so it would be nice to win the Cameron with this horse.”

Following Neeson in the Cameron Handicap 2011 odds are:

  • Peter Snowden’s last-start Rosehill winning Lonhro mare Raspberries ($5)
  • Dubbo galloper Izababe ($8) coming off a win in the Moree Cup where they carted 61.5kg to victory
  • The Gai Waterhouse-trained Redoute’s Choice four-year-old Light Brigade ($9.50) who is out to return to the form that saw then run third to last year’s Cameron Handicap winner Ilovethiscity in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas back in March

Of the Peter Nestor-trained Izababe, the Zariz six-year-old broke a 20 year track record when winning the Moree Cup on September four, but their trainer is worried the far outside barrier on Wednesday may hamper their chances of going back-to-back.

“There’s nothing you can do and we’ll have to take what we’ve been given,” Nestor said.

“Whether he is a Group Three horse I don’t know but if he turns up he’s not out of it.”

It is a star-studded Cameron Handicap field this year, other notable longer-priced entries including Grahame Begg’s dual Group 1 winner All Silent ($11) who is out to improve their claims for the 2011 Epsom Handicap at Randwick next month, gallant Kiwi raider Ginga Dude ($11) and the Chris Waller-trained veteran Syreon on $13.

Begg, who won the feature last year with Ilovethiscity, believes eight-year-old All Silent is ready to hit back after finishing out of the money in every race since he won the 2009 Patinack Farm Classic nearly two years ago.

“The Cameron looks a nice race for him and gives him a chance to get some confidence back,” Begg said.
