The 2011 Coolmore Stud Stakes features one of the biggest draw cards of the entire program at Flemington on Derby Day with Sepoy out to defend his winning streak.
If not for a hiccup prior to the Golden Slipper when beaten by Smart Missile Sepoy would still be undefeated but as it stands it’s only the single second place on an otherwise perfect record.
He’s shown it’s not just the three year olds he can beat either after rising to the Manikato Stakes and putting a space on an open field before then going to the Caulfield Sprint and doing it all over again.
Back to his own age in the Coolmore Stud Stakes then you’d expect this to be a walkover but there’s a strong whisper going around that his rivals feel they can get him.
Sepoy won but wasn’t quit as convicting the last time he went to the straight track at Flemington so in a good race he could be under pressure.
They certainly haven’t run away from him as you can see in the Coolmore Stud Stakes form guide below.

2011 Coolmore Stakes Form Guide
Won the Caulfield Sprint, won the Manikato Stakes and won the Danehill up the straight. The form says he’ll win and his odds reflect that.
Consistent horse that seems to always just fall short. He’ll be somewhere around the money though, he’s never run a bad race.
Hugely impressive first up last start and if something can put pressure on Sepoy early it’s certainly him.
O’Shea reckons he’ll suit the straight and he is coming in off a win, every time he faces these class horses though he comes off second best.
Horrible first up which was disappointing given how much talent he has. Needs to turn it around here.
The import with big raps, he’s the second pick on form and he’s only ever dropped the one race as well, he’s also three form three up the straight back in Hong Kong.
Won at Caulfield last start and deserves his place stepping up in grade to face the big boys.
Third behind Sepoy up the straight in the Danehill and was less than a length and a half off him. As we said, this favourite is no certainty.
Filly with bags of speed and she’ll get to the front early. If they think she’ll just let them past they’ve got another thing coming.
