Alister Clark Stakes 2012 Odds – Proliferate Narrow Favourite

Mick Price’s up-and-coming colt Proliferate has been forgiven for their last-start loss and installed by the bookies at the top of the odds for the 2012 Alister Clark Stakes at Moonee Valley this Friday night.


Sabrage is the close second favourite in the 2012 Alister Clark Stakes markets for this Friday night

More Than Ready three-year-old Proliferate, winner of the Listed Myer Spring Fashion Stakes (1800m) at Flemington during last year’s Melbourne Cup Carnival, resumed racing with an eye-catching second to Peter Snowden’s Pied A Terre in the Group 2 Autumn Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield last month.

They failed in their maiden Group 1 appearance, however, running eight lengths away seventh behind Mosheen in the Australian Guineas over the Flemington mile on March 3.

They drop back in class again for Friday night’s clash, Proliferate drawn in barrier four of 10 for the $200,000 Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) which is due to run as Moonee Valley Race 6 at 9:15pm.

In the latest Alister Clark Stakes odds at, Proliferate leads the way as the narrow $4 favourite.

Close second-elect is then last year’s Victoria Derby third placegetter Sabrage paying $4.40 to win.

Michael Moroney’s Charge Forward colt will enjoy getting back up to the 2040-metres for the Alister Clark after two Flemington runs over 1410m and 1600m, the last being a sixth in the Australian Guineas, so far this season.

The last time Sabrage was at this distance they beat home subsequent Victoria Derby winner Sangster, also engaged for the Alister Clark on Friday night as a $21 chance through, to win the Group 3 Norman Robinson Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield.

While confident in his decision to keep Sabrage in Melbourne for the Alister Clark and not take on Mosheen again in the $500,000 Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) in Sydney on Saturday, Moroney does have some concerns over how Sabrage will go from his barrier eight of 10 draw.

“The barrier draw is a bit of a question, he’s had no luck with barrier draws this time in,” Moroney said.

“Hopefully he’ll draw better when he gets to the Group Ones I suppose.

“He’s a horse who can go forward when he draws a barrier but when you draw out there it makes it a bit hard as you get a bit dictated to.

“We just have to hope that there’s speed on.”

In a wide open affair for the punters four other three-year-olds are at single-figure in the Alister Clark Stakes betting markets with the Peter Moody-trained Fastnet Rock colt Highly Recommended ($5.50) coming off an Australian Guineas fifth, Michael Kent’s chance at back-to-back Alister Clark wins following the success of Domesky last year in Dany The Fox ($6.50), shock Australian Guineas third placegetter Mister Milton ($8) and the Anthony Freeman-trained grey Specter ($8.50).
