Beaded to Bounce Back in 2012 William Reid Stakes?

Ace Sydney horseman Peter Snowden has his fingers crossed that his champion mare Beaded can bounce back after a career worst run in the Newmarket Handicap last start and bring some stiff competition to Hay List in the William Reid Stakes 2012 at Moonee Valley tonight.


Beaded is looking to bounce back in the 2012 William Reid Stakes tonight after a career worst run in the Newmarket

Six-year-old Lonhro mare Beaded finished outside the top four for the first time in her ultra-consistent 24 start career to date a fortnight ago when she got lost in the big 22 horse Newmarket Handicap field at Flemington and finished four and a half lengths off the winner Hay List in 11th.

The Newmarket was her ninth elite level test, Beaded having won just one of those when holding on in a tight finish over Love Conquers All to take out the Doomben 10,000 last May.

Whether she has what it takes to become a dual Group 1 winner tonight is iffy, but Beaded should certainly be able to finish much closer than she did last start.

“Beaded worked great at Moonee Valley on Monday morning,” Snowden said.

“She galloped on her own but worked really well. She’s a seasoned campaigner now and knows what it’s all about.

“She’s fit and well but this is a great race.

“You will need the right run to win this race.”

Running as Moonee Valley Race 6 at 9:15pm, the $400,000 Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) field features eight hopefuls with Hay List odds-on at $1.45 to win.

The major market mover having been backed in from $12 to $9 over the past 24 hours is then Newmarket runner-up Buffering.

Beaded can be found a fair bit further down the William Reid Stakes betting markets at paying $16 after her unexplainable Newmarket effort.

Those punters willing to forgive and forget that run, however, could be laughing come Saturday morning if Beaded does step up and finish off in the winning William Reid Stakes trifecta.

Are you backing or sacking the favourite Hay List? Whatever your predictions for the weekend’s racing, make sure you don’t settle for second-best odds.
