Is It Finally Buffering’s Turn? Stradbroke Handicap 2012

With superstar mare Black Caviar in England and Hay List out with health concerns, Saturday’s 2012 Stradbroke Handicap provides Buffering with one of his best chances yet to claim a first Group 1 victory.

The Robert Heathcote-trained stable star has placed behind the pair on a number of occasions and heads into Saturday’s race at full fitness.

A son of Mossman, Buffering came back terrifically from a stone bruise injury to come within a neck of impressive winner Sea Siren in the Doomben 10,000.

Injury will be no excuse this weekend but the four-year-old will have to overcome some challenges including the top weight of 58kg and a wide barrier 18 draw.

Unsure whether to back Buffering this weekend? Keep reading for out analysis of the stats that matter as well as some arguments as to why he can and why he can’t win the Stradbroke Handicap.
