Emirates Stakes 2011 Field – Jimmy Choux Top Weight & Wide

One of the top fancies to win the 2011 Emirates Stakes on the final Flemington Melbourne Cup Carnival meeting this Saturday, John Bary’s gun Kiwi galloper Jimmy Choux has both the 58kg top weight and now an awkward barrier 13 draw to overcome if they are to add a sixth Group 1 title to their record.

The Thorn Park four-year-old, who has won five Group 1 races back home in New Zealand as well as Australia’s Rosehill Guineas in the autumn, is one of the capacity number of acceptors for the $1 million Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) this year.

Of the 16 starters and four emergencies engaged in the Emirates Stakes 2011 field, Jimmy Choux will wear the No. 1 saddlecloth.

“He’s rated on 118 points, which is the highest in the field and has won two Group 1 races on his way through so I’m quite happy that we didn’t get more (weight),” Bary said of Jimmy Choux who had a lovely gallop in Melbourne on Tuesday.

Last seen running a very brave second in the Cox Plate to upset winner Pinker Pinker, Bary is hoping the ‘Choux’ can salute in one more thoroughbred major before heading to the paddock back home for a well-earned rest.

Another Kiwi visitor racing in this year’s Emirates is defending champion Wall Street, Jeff Lynds‘ always consistent seven-year-old coming off three straight fourth place finishes at Group 1 level, most recently in the Cox Plate.

Back to the mile they look very competitive, Wall Street to jump from gate two with Hugh Bowman to ride at 56kg.

It is a truly star-studded Emirates Stakes field set to line-up on Saturday which includes four last-start winners with Love Conquers All (Group 3 Betfair Stakes, 1400m, Caulfield, 15/10/2011), Brisbane raider Woorim (Group 3 tab.com.au Stakes, 1400m, Flemington, 29/10/2011), veteran eight-year-old Pinnacles (Sale Cup, 1600m, Sale, 23/10/2011) and the Mick Price-trained Testa My Patience who earned their shot at Emirates Stakes glory with an upset win in the Group 2 Crystal Mile (1600m) at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day.

Four mares will also strut their stuff against the boys in the Emirates this year, the top fancy of which is Dubawi four-year-old Secret Admirer.

Grahame Begg’s recent Epsom Handicap winner enjoyed a nice early advantage coming up trumps with gate four as she races for the first time since her fast finishing fifth in the Cox Plate.

Two of the other females in the field are Peter Moody’s former New Zealander King’s Rose, a winner of two of her four starts in Australia, and triple Group 1 champion Yosei who has had a few recent injury setbacks.

Other notable 2011 Emirates Stakes acceptors include the Chris Waller-trained trio of Danleigh, Albert The Fat and Red Tracer, the fourth mare in the field who ran third in the Epsom last-start.

Below is the full Emirates Stakes final field, barrier draw, jockeys, weights and emergencies for Saturday’s showdown.
