2012 Stradbroke Handicap Odds Update – Sea Siren Second Pick

Despite her record breaking BTC Cup win at Doomben over the weekend John O’Shea’s talented Sydney filly Sea Siren is still playing second fiddle to another Sydney raider with Mental retaining their spot at the top of the Stradbroke Handicap 2012 odds.


Buffering is fourth favourite in the latest 2012 Stradbroke Handicap odds after missing the BTC Cup

Fastnet Rock three-year-old Sea Siren broke the race record held for over a decade by an impressive 0.29 seconds on Saturday when she beat an exciting field of older rivals under weight-for-age conditions in the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m).

The victory has her on track to continue onto the $650,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) on May 26.

O’Shea originally bought Sea Siren to Queensland to target the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival’s headline event, the $1 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday June 9.

Her maiden elite level success in the BTC Cup certainly strengthened her Stradbroke claims and she firmed in from over $20 in the bookmaker.com.au markets to $9.

What her BTC Cup win also did however is see Sea Siren likely incur a weight penalty from the handicappers for the Stradbroke, which will be added to should she continue on to win the Doomben 10,000.

If she is over-weighted in O’Shea’s eyes then she won’t go to the Stradbroke, so there are certainly no guarantees for the punters that take her on in the futures markets at $9.

Topping the Stradbroke Handicap odds at $8 is the Peter Snowden-trained Mental.

The three-year-old Lonhro gelding resumed at Hawesbury on May 5 and scored an eye-catching three length victory over 1200m in a Benchmark 85 Handicap.

Based on that performance the bookies installed them as the Stradbroke Handicap betting favourite, and they get a chance to prove themselves again this Saturday as they make their interstate debut at Doomben in the $125,000 Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) on Doomben Cup Day.

If Snowden isn’t 100 per cent impressed with Mental on Saturday then he will likely abandon Stradbroke plans and focus on the $350,000 Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1600m).

“Racing against his own age in the Guineas would be much easier,” Snowden said.

“He has to really impress us in the Fred Best to earn a Stradbroke run.”

The other early fancies are then the Tim Martin-trained Gosford Guineas winner Pampelonne ($10), scratched BTC Cup favourite Buffering ($11) and Anthony Freedman’s Group 3 winner Smokin’ Joey ($13).
