Warwick Farm hosts tomorrow’s Sydney meeting and one of the key support races on the 2012 Villiers Stakes Day card is the Listed $100,000 2012 Razor Sharp Handicap (1200m).
A solid 11-horse field will contest what is the last race of the day and dual Group 2 winner Whitefriars heads the bookmaker.com.au market at $4.60 in what will be his first race since winning the Australia Stakes in January 2011.
Jostling for favouritism with the seven-year-old is Riva De Lago ($4.80) while Adebisi ($7), Bound To Blush ($7), Stratford ($7) and Skytrain ($7) all also fall under double figures.

#4 Adebisi $7
This Queensland gelding has speed to burn and makes the trip south after two solid lead-up runs. A likely leader who has drawn well in barrier three, Adebisi won by three-lengths at Doomben first-up before finishing 1 1/2 lengths fifth in a solid field in the Group 3 George Moore Stakes.
Has shown quality throughout his career with three stakes-level wins and has chalked up three victories over the Razor Sharp distance of 1200 metres.
Whitefriars has to carry a big weight of 61.5kg and is returning from a lengthy lay off but he is by far the classiest runner in the field.
Has won twice at Group 2 level, knows the track well, has won twice at the distance and has won two barrier trials in the lead-up.
Darley mare Skytrain is another who has shown the ability to win at stakes level and looks well weighted with 56.5kg to feature near the front of the field.
Drawn well in barrier one with Kerrin McEvoy to ride, the seven-year-old can add to her successful record of seven wins and nine minor placings from 27 outings.
