Hill Stakes 2013 Betting Tips

Running one race after the George Main Stakes at Randwick on Saturday, the 2013 Hill Stakes is shaping up as another intriguing spring carnival feature where some talented staying types are set to strut their stuff.

Scheduled as Race 7 at 4:35pm (AEST) this year’s $200,000 Group 2 Bacardi Hill Stakes (2000m) field is down to nine hopes following yesterday’s withdrawal of three runners.

Scratched from the Hill Stakes 2013 were the Chris Waller-trained duo Beaten Up (tendon injury) and Kelinni (colic attack), as well as his Caulfield Cup-bound four-year-old Hawkspur who will be kept to the mile in Group 1 company for the George Main.

Waller still saddles up the Hill Stakes favourite though with market mover Moriarty dominating betting now into $2.90.

The Clodovil six-year-old, winner of the Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2400m) in June, resumed with a Warwick Stakes before improving to finish fourth to Hawkspur in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) here on September 7.

Set to appreciate the distance increase on the weekend the Irish-bred gelding is not without their claims.

Others high up the Hill Stakes odds are then Waller’s other remaining runner Bayrir ($4.40) who was sixth in the Chelmsford in the French import’s second start in Australia, the John O’Shea-trained ATC Derby minor placegetter Kingdoms ($4.80) and Group 1 winning import Glencadam Gold ($7.50).

So will one of these gallopers get the job done for the punters on Saturday?

Or is there a real roughie in the mix out for a boilover?


#5 Glencadam Gold ($7.50)

Quality Gai Waterhouse-trained hope who is better than their first-up eighth in the Chelmsford. Winner of the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) here 12 months ago which was also their last victory. Were definitely in better form last spring but this isn’t out of their reach if they can get back to their best not having done a lot of racing over the past year.


#4 Moriarty ($2.90)

Deserving favourite whose two first-up runs were just warm ups as they go up to a more suitable distance. They get that here and they were able to win the Lord Mayors Cup over the 2000m third-up last time in, so could be hard to hold out under the same circumstances. Brisbane Cup winner in Queensland back in June over the mile and a half so has class, also took out some good stakes race in Sydney during the summer including the Gosford Cup.


#9 Ironstein ($31)

Really generous price on this veteran Zabeel eight-year-old scratched from Thursday’s Newcastle Cup to run in this. It’s a much tougher field but this old warhorse can surprise. Their two resuming runs weren’t fantastic but last start at Rosehill they were a very close second to Less Is More in the Listed Premier’s Cup (1800m) which has been a credible spring guide over the years. Hasn’t won a race since the Queen Elizabeth Stakes in the spring of 2011 but is a genuine stayer that always brings something this time of year who the 2000m is going to suit.
