WJ Adams Stakes 2013 Betting Preview and Tips

A small but reasonable field will line up in the Listed 2013 WJ Adams Stakes (1000m) on Saturday which takes place as one of four stakes races at Caulfield.

Just seven horses will contest the sprint with First Command a $2.70 favourite as he attempts to score a third consecutive victory.

Adelaide mare Avoid Lightning ($3) again travels east while Gary Portelli’s gelding Eight Bills ($6), Group 2-place gelding Canali ($7) and Kensington Stakes runner-up Light Express ($8) are all under double figures.

For those who like to take the big prices Cardinal Virtue returns from a spell as a $26 chance while Anthony Cummings’ filly Diamond Earth is the long-shot outsider at $51.

The Winner

#4 Avoid Lightning $3

This Adelaide mare is a genuine winner. Has five wins from eight starts and looks well placed here.

Running second-up after a strong second at Moonee Valley in late December and gets in well on the 54kg minimum.

Will have top jockey Craig Williams in the saddle to guide her into the best position.

To Place

#6 Light Express $8

With just seven horses in the race there’s no third dividend and we are tipping Light Express to fill second spot.

The Fastnet Rock mare was second to First Command in the Kensington Stakes but will carry just 54kg compared to the 60kg the favourite will be forced to lug.
