Brown’s Need for Speed – Ajax Stakes 2012 Betting

Despite having a nasty wide draw to overcome on Saturday, top hoop Corey Brown is confident his mount Speediness has what it takes to beat home a crack field in the 2012 Ajax Stakes at Rosehill Gardens.

Colin Scott’s Testa Rossa four-year-old Speediness is the third favourite to take out the $175,000 Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) even though they came up with barrier 16 of 18.

They will come into 15 of 17 with the early scratching of Knot Out, but it is still a tough assignment for the gelding as they face some quality rivals.

Ajax Stakes odds at are led by Gai Waterhouse’s up-and-comer Niagara ($4.60) who will jump from barrier 10 with Tommy Berry aboard.

The next best fancied in the Ajax Stakes betting markets is then Peter Snowden’s crack colt Pied A Terre ($5.50) out wide with barrier 13 (into 12).

Speediness then follows paying $6 in the markets, a good price according to Brown who reunites with the galloper for the first time since last May.

Brown was aboard for their two mid-season runs last year when Speediness ran a first-up second to Pimpala Secret in the Listed Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) and then their next-up second to subsequent dual Group 1 winner Sincero in the Inglis 3YO Guineas (1600m) at Scone.

For their three runs this year Speediness has been ridden by Glen Boss who will be aboard Ajax Stakes rival Al Dhafra ($26 in the far outside gate on Saturday.

A winner of four of their 10 starts to date, Speediness stepped up to Group company for the first time last time out when they ran a good fourth to imported stayer Green Moon in the G.2 Blamey Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on March 10.

They are yet to race at Rosehill, but the 1500-metres is sure to suit.

Having watched Speediness win back-to-back races in February and then their Blamey Stakes performance, Brown is more than happy to be back in the saddle on Saturday.

“I’ve ridden him a couple of times before for a couple of close seconds,” Brown said.

“I thought we had Sincero’s measure in the Scone Guineas last year but it wasn’t to be, but he’s a lovely horse.

“His runs in Melbourne have been really good although he bombed the start last time and has just started to play up a bit in the barriers.

“Craig Williams put a big wrap on him early on and when he came here last year he did nothing wrong.

“I’m looking forward to getting back on him and expect him to run well on Saturday.”
