Buffering Short Favourite in Rescheduled 2012 Victory Stakes

Queensland sprinter Buffering is odds-on favourite to take top honours in the rescheduled 2012 Victory Stakes at Eagle Farm on Wednesday.


Buffering is odds-on favourite to win the rescheduled Victory Stakes at Eagle Farm tomorrow

Wet weather forced the abandonment of the original race on Saturday and it will now run as the Coca-Cola Amatil Weight for Age with a reduction in prize money from $175,000 to $100,000.

The changes mean Buffering can not record a second consecutive Victory Stakes title but it comes as a much needed hit-out ahead of Saturday week’s BTC Cup at Doomben.

Currently paying $1.35 at bookmaker.com.au, the son of Mossman is by far the most credentialed runner in the six-horse field.

Trained by Robert Heathcote, the four-year-old is yet to record a Group 1 victory but has been a victim of strong fields and has placed on numerous occasions behind star sprinters Black Caviar and Hay List.

Buffering is trailed in the betting by fellow local product Adebisi ($3.60) who is fresh off a 2.5 length victory in a Listed race last start at Doomben on April 14.

The four-year-old gelding has seven victories from 24 starts and will be ridden by well-known Brisbane jockey Chris Munce from the outside barrier.

He is the only horse given a chance by the bookies outside of the favourite with the next best Scenic Blast at $15.00.

The Daniel Morton-trained gelding will be having his first run of 2012 after a disappointing sprint that saw him return to Australia with two back-field finishes after a long stint overseas.

The seven-year-old is a three-time Group 1 winner but all of those victories came during a purple patch of form in 2009.

Rounding out of the field for tomorrow’s rescheduled Victory Stakes are Captain Clayton ($26.00), Moneysaver ($34.00) and Starstreamed ($67.00).
