Walter Tips Streama Over Toydini in 2013 Warwick Stakes

Local Warwick Farm-based horseman Guy Walter is preparing to saddle up two of the main dangers to the odds-on favourite in Saturday’s Warwick Stakes 2013, but despite an early betting trend for his younger hopeful Toydini he’s sticking with dual Group 1 winning mare Streama as his pick of the two.

Joe Pride’s first-up Missile Stakes winning speedster Rain Affair is the $1.80 favourite to win successive races and continue his nice Warwick Farm record in the weekend’s $175,000 Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m).

Stratum five-year-old Streama then is the only other horse under double figures in the Warwick Stakes odds paying $6 to upset Rain Affair.

She hasn’t run since her brave second behind the Chris Waller-trained Red Tracer in Brisbane’s Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara in June which came on the back of a number of other good runs including her Doncaster fourth and Stradbroke Handicap third.

Boasting two Group 1 titles of her own, Streama is an experienced runner and should get one of the better runs of the race drawn in gate five of 14 with triple Melbourne Cup winning jockey Glen Boss on her back.

She has run second three times and third twice from her five first-up runs before, and comes into this on the back of a winning Rosehill trial from the start of the month.

Walter then is confident she’s got what it takes to be competitive against Rain Affair and upstage her young stablemate Toydini who has seen early love from the punters for their four-year-old debut.

“Toydini is a young, up-and-coming horse who still has to prove himself at this level,” Walter told the Herald Sun.

We’ve done a lot of work with him, he goes well fresh, but I’m leaning towards the mare. She’s quite forward fitness wise, and she puts herself anywhere in a race.

“She can be first, she can be last, and while I have a big opinion of Toydini, I’m leaning towards Streama.”

Bernardini gelding Toydini proved themselves one to watch last season winning the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) by two and a half lengths, and the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) by four lengths over subsequent Queensland Derby winner Hawkspur.

That nice form and their gate six draw one outside of Streama has seen Toydini backed into $12 in the Warwick Stakes betting markets.

While Walter likes this horse and believes them worthy of a shot at the $500,000 Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) on October 10, which Streama is also targeting, he doesn’t think they’ll be able to win on Saturday.

And as for Streama beating Rain Affair?

“Do you think she can win?” he replied when asked.

“She’s a class mare, she’s fit, and she’s got ‘G Boss’, which is a big bonus.”

Whether you’re sticking with the favourite Rain Affair, or fancy an upset from one of Walter’s duo, head over to for all the best Warwick Stakes odds.
