2013 Stradbroke Handicap Barriers 2 – 7 Ideal for Streama

Sydney horseman Guy Walter has his fingers crossed for a good gate for his dual Group 1 winning mare Streama in the Stradbroke Handicap 2013 barrier draw which will take place at 11am (AEST) today.

One of the top 10 chances in the pre-field markets for this Saturday’s $1.36 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm sitting at a quote of around $17 earlier in the week with betting led by Peter Snowden’s Doomben 10,000 winner Epaulette, Streama will be vying for her third elite level trophy in the Queensland classic.

Her biggest turf triumphs to date have been in the 2011 Flight Stakes which she won by a commanding six and a half lengths and her close victory over the mile and a half at Randwick in last year’s Australian Oaks.

The now four-year-old daughter of Stratum was also in good form during the autumn in Sydney this April when a length away third to Appearance in the Queen of the Turf Stakes and fourth to Sacred Falls on a Heavy (10) track at Randwick in the famous Doncaster Mile.

She races for the first time since this Saturday making her Queensland debut at career start number 23 in the Stradbroke Handicap.

After a credible third in a 1050m barrier trial at Randwick late last month, Walter has decided to put the blinkers on Streama for the 1400m race this weekend in an attempt to sharpen her up.

Walter opted not to put Streama in the spotlight at Eagle Farm yesterday where many of the race’s top chances were on display.

Instead the mare had a quite workout in the morning showing her trainer she was ready to race, Walter now sweating on a good barrier for her grand final.

“She made the trip to Brisbane on Sunday so I just wanted her to have a canter,” Walter said.

“She is fine form and all I want now is for her to draw a good barrier, preferably between two and seven.”

Interestingly barrier two has produced no Stradbroke Handicap winners in the past 30 years.

The only other thing of concern for Walter is the blistering form of the three-year-olds this season.

In the Doncaster Mile the three horses home ahead of Streama were all a year younger the Chris Waller-trained winner Sacred Falls, the since retired star colt Pierro (2nd) and Bart Cummings’ Vinery Stud Stakes winner Norzita (3rd).

Three-year-olds dominate the betting again for this weekend with favourite Lonhro colt Epaulette followed in the Stradbroke Handicap odds by the likes of local hope Better Than Ready, Queensland Guineas winner Sizzling and BTC Cup winner Your Song.
