Inglis Nursery 2012 Field & Barriers – Villiers Stakes Day

It might not hold black type status and only five of the field have had a previous start but the 2012 Inglis Nursery at Warwick Farm Racecourse on Villiers Stakes Day this Saturday is still shaping up as an intriguing event.

Worth a lucrative $250,000 in prize money the Inglis graduates event is scheduled as the third on the card with 15 acceptors, including a single emergency, accepted to face off in the two-year-olds’ sprint over 1000m.

Four of the five youngsters in the field that have previous race experience have suffered an early blow with wide barrier draws including one of the early favourites Standard Bearer.

Noel Mayfield-Smith’s Choisir colt has gate 14 when they race for the second time having run a close second to Regimental Pride, a flop in Thursday’s Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic, in an 1100m race at Rosehill back in October.

Others with wide gates to overcome include Canberra visitor Chasing Charlie (13) who blitzed their debut back home in late November, Strada filly Sweet Kiss (11) coming off a 3.5 length over 9000m at Newcastle, and unraced Haradasun filly Sunshine Royale (12) coming off a trial win from last Friday.

Without much form to drive the markets there are plenty of live-wire chances in the race with other notable hopefuls including David Hayes’ Encosta De Lago filly Blue Palace (barrier 10), and the Bjorn Baker-trained duo of Snippetson colt Fuerza (barrier five) who killed a Warwick Farm trial last week by two lengths and Twilight Royale (barrier six).

Another unraced hopeful in the mix likely to start at generous odds is Jeff Brasch’s $7,500 bargain buy from the Scone Yearling Sale in May Nuclear Snip from Mudgee who won their Narromine trial earlier in the month.

“He’s actually a very professional horse and has got a great nature,” Brasch said.

“Obviously, he’s being thrown into the deep end in what looks a good quality field but the thing is he’s done everything right in his barrier trial and trackwork so we just felt it was worth a crack and we’ll see how it goes.

“It’s the biggest race, prize money-wise, I’ve ever had a runner in.

“And I think if he did manage to do really well it would certainly give me a boost.”
