Can Pierro Score Upset Inglis Sires Produce Stakes Result 2012?

There are really only two horses in the 2012 Inglis Sires Produce Stakes at Royal Randwick this Australian Derby Day that punters need to consider, one of which is Gai Waterhouse’s Golden Slipper winner from last Saturday Pierro.

Nash Rawiller

Nash Rawiller retains the ride on Pierro in the 2012 ATC Inglis Sires Produce Stakes

They may have won the world’s richest race for two-year-olds but undefeated Lonhro colt Pierro won’t jump the favourite for the $500,000 ATC Inglis Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) on Saturday.

The honour of top spot in the Inglis Sires Produce Stakes odds at bookmaker.com.au instead belongs to Black Caviar’s brilliant half-brother All Too Hard.

All Too Hard may have bypassed the Slipper but all the money says the odds-on favourite will salute in their maiden Group 1 this weekend and take their impressive career record to four straight for owner Nathan Tinkler who forked over $1 million for them as a yearling.

So does Pierro, paying a more attractive $2.40 at bookmaker.com.au, stand any kind of chance of an upset?

Having gone over the field and form the Races.com.au team take a good look at the pros and cons of backing an upset Inglis Sires Produce Stakes result with Pierro on Saturday.

Why Pierro Can Win the 2012 Inglis Sires Produce Stakes Winner

  • Not just any two-year-old wins a Golden Slipper
  • Waterhouse and Rawiller are on fire, looking to combine for another Group 1 in Sydney in just seven days
  • Will get the run of the race from barrier two
  • Defeated 15 rivals in the Slipper last Saturday and face just six this time
  • Is unbeaten in four career starts to date, one more than All Too Hard
  • Have won close to $2.4 million in prize money already thanks to the Slipper
  • Has run and won at Randwick back on debut last October

Why Pierro Will Get Beaten in the Inglis Sires Produce Stakes 2012

  • Three words – All Too Hard
  • Also the distance, they are yet to see it while All Too Hard destroyed his rivals over it two back in Melbourne
  • On a seven day back-up, All Too Hard is fresh

If All Too Hard wasn’t in this race Waterhouse would have herself the quinella with Pierro to finish first ahead of their up-and-coming stablemate Raceway ($19).

As it stands All Too Hard is in this race and they really will be hard to beat.

Pierro backs up from the Slipper, runs the extra 200-metres and wins, then they win.

If not All Too Hard will be there.
