Green Roller Out To Defeat Males in 2013 Alister Clark Stakes

Green Roller will be out to upset the males when she makes her Group-level debut in the Group 2 2013 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

The David Hayes-trained galloper is the only filly in a seven-horse field that includes a number of runners coming out of the Group 1 Australian Guineas.

Green Roller is at the top of her game for the hit-out, having begun her campaign in December.

The daughter of Flying Spur has been in terrific form recently, winning the Listed Strutt Stakes (2100m) in February and running second at Moonee Valley earlier this month.

The Strutt Stakes win, which saw her finish two lengths in front of the next best runner, holds her in good stead ahead of the 2040m Alister Clark test.

She may be an outsider at $18 but jockey Stephen Baster believes she is not without a chance.

“There’s only two horses in there that have won up to this trip and she’s one of them,” Baster said.

“She’s drawn well in barrier one.”

Baster returns from suspension after he won the Group 1 Australian Guineas aboard Ferlax on March 2.

Green Roller is one of the more experienced horses in the field, having won twice and placed on two other occasions from nine career outings.

Current favourite for the Alister Clark Stakes is Hvasstan who is at $3.20.

The Peter Gelagotis-trained colt was fourth in the Australian Guineas and showed his staying potential last year when running fourth in the Victoria Derby.

Others in the Alister Clark Stakes field include Mick Kent-trained colt Philippi ($3.30), Australian Guineas third Sheer Talent ($3.80) and Green Roller’s stablemate Bass Strait ($5).
