WJ Adams Stakes Winner Avoid Lightning Oakleigh Plate 2013 Chance

David Jolly’s progressive Adelaide mare Avoid Lightning is showing all the signs of being a genuine Group 1 prospect this Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival with the 2013 Oakleigh Plate on the cards after her nice win in the $120,000 Listed W.J. Adams Stakes (1000m) at Caulfield on the weekend.

Avoid Lightning is a 2013 Oakleigh Plate chance after her weekend win at Caulfield

The unremarkable looking four-year-old daughter of Blevic, a stakes winner back home last winter, improved on her first-up second at Moonee Valley when carrying a hefty 58kg, relishing her 54kg light-weight in the WJ Adams Stakes on Saturday.

With top jockey Craig Williams in the saddle Avoid Lightning ($3.50) was able to put a quarter length on runner-up Canali ($7) and take out the race with the $2.70 favourite First Command a close third just a long neck further back to finish off the trifecta.

“She’s not a very big mare and she’s got a bit of a sway back on her. She’s not a very pretty horse,” Goolwa-based Jolly said.

“(But) she loves winning, she knows when she’s won.”

Jolly is hoping Avoid Lightning continues to race well in Victoria this time in and is tentatively eyeing a start in the $400,000 Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) back at the track on Blue Diamond Stakes Day, February 23.

“We did have in the back of our mind that she may contest an Oakleigh Plate, where she would be down in the weights,” he said.

“She goes all right at Caulfield. The trip won’t hurt.

“I will have a chat to Craig. She will have nothing on her back and not being a big mare that tends to suit.

“We planned to run her in some better handicaps down in the weights.”
