Shea Shea A Clear Favourite Against Shamexpress – 2013 King’s Stand Stakes Odds

If Aussie hope Shamexpress is to be any hope of tasting success at Royal Ascot, he is going to have to overcome some quality sprinters.

Of those the Newmarket Handicap winner is taking on in the 2013 King’s Stand Stakes (1000m), none have a bigger reputation than Shea Shea.

The South African speedster will chase a third straight win when he lines up at Royal Ascot after a successful stint in Dubai.

Wins in the Meydan Sprint and the Group 1 Al Quoz Sprint have seen the Mike De Kock-trained gelding installed as a $3 favourite in the early King's Stand Stakes market, with Shamexpress rated an $8 chance.

Shea Shea certainly boasts an imposing record, with the son of National Emblem a triple Group 1 winner. From 19 starts he has won 10 times and placed on another five occasions.

The lightly-raced Shamexpress will be having his first start since his emphatic Newmarket win when steps out on the opening day of the Royal Ascot Carnival on Tuesday.

Flemington trainer Danny O’Brien gave him two jump-outs prior to departure to top him off for his international debut and he has reportedly settled in well to his new surrounds in the UK.

Apart from Shea Shea, the only other runner considered a better chance than Shamexpress in the King’s Stand Stakes is British colt Reckless Abandon.

The three-year-old is at $7 and has impressed so far in his career with five wins from six starts including scoring Group 1 honours as a two-year-old in the MIddle Park Stakes at Newmarket.

Others considered strong chances in the King’s Stand Stakes include Sole Power ($9), the John Gosden-trained Swiss Spirit ($10) and last-start Group 2 winner Kingsgate Native ($14).
