All Too Hard to Forget – Talindert Stakes 2012 Odds

Black Caviar’s unraced half-brother All Too Hard has opened the narrow second-elect for their debut run in the 2012 Talindert Stakes at Flemington on Saturday, the Team Hawkes-trained youngster trailing only Peter Snowden’s Exceed And Excel colt Forget in the early markets.

Black Caviar

Black Caviar has left big boots to fill for her half-brother All Too Hard in his debut at Flemington this Saturday

Serving as an appetiser to the 2012 Lightning Stakes where the unbeaten Black Caviar and the resuming Hay List will renew their rivalry, Flemington Race 1 – the $100,000 Listed Talindert Stakes (1100m) is sure to draw plenty of support also.

While it is the Snowden-trained Forget, running for their first time since their disappointing 10th on debut behind 2012 Golden Slipper-bound Pierro in the Listed Thoroughbred Breeders Plate (1000m) at Randwick last October, who tops the Talindert Stakes odds, punters have been lining up to get behind the next ‘Black Flash’.

Forget in barrier eight pays $3.20 to break their maiden status on Saturday through Luxbet, Casino Prince colt All Too Hard following at a quote of $3.90.

Sharing the same dam, Helsinge, as the mighty Black Caviar the pressure most certainly is on for All Too Hard as they go to the races for the first time.

Purchased for over $1 million as a yearling at the Sydney Easter Sales by mining magnate and Patianck Farm owner-operator Nathan Tinkler, All Too Hard is prepared by father-and-sons training team John, Michael and Wayne Hawkes.

“The most important thing is that All Too Hard doesn’t know who he’s related to,” Wayne Hawkes said.

“He doesn’t have to be as good as Black Caviar to be very successful.

“You can have all the comparisons, all that sort of stuff and he’s going to be scrutinised big time, but it’s not fair to the horse.

“If he’s successful they’ll say so he should be, but if he’s not people will say I told you so.”

Whatever the future holds for All Too Hard, whether it is stardom like their superlative half-sister Black Caviar or the backburner like it has been for Black Caviar’s full brother Moshe also prepared by the Hawkes who won three of their opening four starts before injuring themselves last April, as it stands now he looks promising.

“He’s a lovely quiet horse with a great attitude,” Hawkes said.

“He does everything right, just what you need in a two-year-old.

“He’s a natural, an absolute natural.”

Not expected to be quite as dynamic as their famous older sibling, All Too Hard will still be a drawcard on the Lightning Stakes Day program.

Two other Talindert Stakes 2012 hopes are at single-figures in the Luxbet markets with Peter Moody’s nice looking colt Liberty Rock ($5) who won their race debut at Kyneton a fortnight ago, and the Mathew Ellerton & Simon Zahra-trained filly Lil Red Corvette ($8.50) coming off a smart win at Moonee Valley.

So kick off your Saturday on the punt with a bet on the Talindert Stakes, and make sure you stick around to get behind Black Caviar next race in the Lightning!
