All Too Hard Tops 2012 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes Odds

Black Caviar’s undefeated half-brother All Too Hard has opened as the early favourite to maintain their unblemished career record with a win in the VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes 2012, the two-year-old clash to run as race three of nine at Flemington for the autumn Super Saturday of Racing.

All Too Hard

Talindert Stakes winner All Too Hard will shoot for win number two-from-two in the 2012 VRC Sires' Produce Stakes on Saturday

The $250,000 Group 2 Henry Bucks VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) drew a full field of 16 starters plus three emergencies, first reserve Ekibuuka set to get a run following the early scratching of #16 Meditrina.

In the horse racing betting markets for the event at the bookies, just four of the young hopefuls are under $10, the favourite of which is All Too Hard.

Drawn in barrier 10, coming into nine if second emergency My Dancing Duel fails to gain a run, the Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes-trained Casino Prince colt shares the same dam (Helsinge) as the mighty Black Caviar and connections are hoping he enjoys the same second-up result as his famed older sibling.

Paying around $3 in the VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes odds, All Too Hard debuted at Flemington on February 18 and beat home a similar quality field by one and a half lengths in the Listed Talindert Stakes (1100m).

Their main dangers on Saturday look to be fellow stakes winner Jimando ($5.50) last seen running fourth in the Blue Diamond Stakes, and the Jason Warren-trained Pronto Pronto ($6).

Promising Snitzel colt finished an eye-catching fourth behind the David Hayes-trained filly Mama’s Choice in the Listed Chairman’s Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield on February 4 and showed good improvement to win their next start over 1200-metres at Sandown beating Shamexpress.

Shamexpress also backs up in the Henry Bucks Sires’ Produce Stakes on Saturday, Danny O’Brien’s O’Reilly colt the next best-fancied paying around $8 in the markets.

Coming up trumps with barrier three, Shamexpress will be ridden by Craig Williams for the first time on Saturday, the up-and-comer looking to return to the form that saw them score a four length win over 1200-metres at Flemington on debut before encountering a Slow (7) track last start.

Other longer-priced chances that could claim an upset, a common result in these two-year-old clashes, include the Peter Snowden-trained Elusive Quality colt Rusambo ($12) who ran fifth in the Blue Diamond, Snowden’s untapped Hussonet colt Tatra ($14), Chairman’s Stakes winner Mama’s Choice ($14) and the Ricky Maund-trained Timely Truce ($19) coming off a third to All Too Hard in the Talindert.

While it may not be of the same caliber as next month’s 2012 Golden Slipper in Sydney, the VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes is still worth a punt on this weekend so don’t miss out on your chance to back a winner, head to now and open an account using the code BONUSBET to also receive a $300 bonus bet!
