Gilgai Stakes 2012 – Preview and Tips

We have already seen some quality sprint events this spring and the action continues this weekend at Flemingtion with the Group 2 2012 Gilgai Stakes (1200m).

Spirit Of Boom

Spirit Of Boom is the Races.com.au tip to win the Gilgai Stakes

Among the 11 horses contesting the Gilgai are a mixture of in-form runners and a number who are competing for the first time this spring.

Heading the market is McEwen Stakes winner Bel Sprinter ($2.60) and in-form Queensland sprinter Spirit Of Boom ($4.80).

But there is plenty of quality and also set to be challenging on Saturday are Group 1 winners Mid Summer Music ($6.00) and King’s Rose ($7.00) as well as the Gai Waterhouse-trained Hallowell Belle ($11.00).

Unsure where to head with this one? Don’t worry as the Races.com.au team have been been hard at work to bring your our very best Gilgai Stakes selections.

The Winner

#2 Spirit Of Boom $4.80

The Tony Gollan-trained five-year-old is third-up here which is generally where he performs his best.

Has two genuinely impressive runs under his belt including a first-up second down the straight to We’re Gonna Rock who has since gone out and finished second in a Group 1 race.

Back down the straight here and attempting to mirror brother Temple Of Boom who won this race last year.

The Placings

#7 King’s Rose $7.00 and #8 Sistine Angel $18.00

This is nowhere near the grand final for King’s Rose but you can’t deny the Peter Moody-trained mare is quality.

A Group 1 winner in New Zealand and multiple Group 1 placegetter here and she generally goes well fresh.

Also with a good first-up record is Sistine Angel who has form down the straight with a runner-up finish in this race last year.
