Fat Al Heads 2012 Carbine Club Stakes Odds & Betting

Sydney’s red hot trainer Gai Waterhouse will saddle up a number of top chances on Australian Derby Day at Randwick this Saturday including the pronounced favourite for the Carbine Club Stakes 2012Fat Al.

Coming off a scorching first-up win in the Albury Guineas over 1400-metres on March 23, Al Maher three-year-old Fat Al has opened top of the bookmaker.com.au odds for the $125,000 Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m).

Running as Randwick Race 2 at 12:25pm on Saturday the 2012 Carbine Club Stakes field originally featured 11 hopefuls but the early scratching of #11 Tavarnelle, who had the inside barrier draw, has left 10 contenders.

Coming into gate two with Nash Rawiller to ride Fat Al pays $2.15 in the Carbine Club Stakes betting markets to win their fourth race from just six starts.

They have been to the mile once before when a close second in an Inglis 3YO Bonus at Warwick Farm last November, and had they drawn a gate better than 13 (of 14) they would likely have won.

The two other best fancied three-year-olds in the Carbine Club Stakes odds at bookmaker.com.au are then Peter Snowden’s market mover Galah ($4.20) and the Peter Moody-trained Brambles ($4.60).

To jump from barrier eight as the 58kg topweight, Redoute’s Choice colt Galah was one of last spring’s better three-year-olds winning three on the trot including the Group 3 Inglis Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on Derby Day before their close third in the Group 2 Sandwon Guineas (1600m).

They haven’t been as good this time in finishing near the back of the field in all three of their starts so far including a distant 14th behind Laser Hawk in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas over 2000-metres last time out.

Savabeel gelding Brambles, meanwhile, races in Group company for the first time on Saturday having earned a shot against a better field with their good first-up second over 1400m at Hawkesbury on March 22.

Other notable chances at juicer odds include Danny O’Brien’s last-start Moonee Valley winner Now You Know ($10), the Anthony Cummings-trained Imperial Grand ($14) who is out for their third straight win, and John O’Shea’s progressive Anabba gelding Showpony Express ($17).

Now You Know (Elusive City – Triassic) is a half-brother to dual Cox Plate champion So You Think and O’Brien is confident that the Carbine Club Stakes is the right race for them to make their Sydney debut in.

“We think he’s pretty well suited,” O’Brien said.

“He’s had a nice preparation.

“Last start he came back to the mile and won a nice race there at Moonee Valley.

“We wanted to give him a trip away before he went for a break before the spring and the Carbine Club is a nice race for him.

“We do think he’ll be a better horse as a four-year-old but this is a nice way to round out his three-year-old season.

“We would love to get some black type on the board with him and this is the right sort of race for him.”
