Taxmeifyoucan Heads Villiers Stakes Odds 2013

Up-and-coming four-year-old Taxmeifyoucan has opened narrow favourite to break their black type maiden when they race in Sydney’s 2013 Villiers Stakes at Kensington this Saturday.

It’s a wide open market on the 14 runners engaged in this year’s $175,000 Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1550m) with all but two of the acceptors under $20 in the current odds.

Heading Villiers Stakes betting for now at a quote of $6 is Gregory Hickman’s Ad Valorem four-year-old Taxmeifyoucan, drawn in gate eight with Tim Clark to ride for the first time.

They get in on the 53kg minimum with Coup Ay Tee ($10) and Western Symbol ($14) heading the weights on 59kg.

While Taxmeifyoucan hasn’t won a race since the Inglis 3YO Guineas at Scone back in May, they are tipped to break the drought when they go up in class this weekend.

They come off two decent runs including a close third when defeated under a length by Secessio in an open handicap over 1500m at Rosehill on November 2.

Their last start looked to be a dead heat in the Goulburn Cup with Any Day Will Do.

However the judge’s decision was to award them second in the mile feature, a controversial one that many believe should have been overturned.

Still it’s one that has helped them get in on a nice light weight this weekend, Absalon having carried 57kg last start.

There are then three other single figure chances in the Villiers Stakes odds with:

  • #11 Sysmo ($6.50) – Was originally set to run in the ATC Cup a fortnight ago but ruled out of that with a hoof injury, has bounced back and is ready for this Group 2 after a Seymour Cup win over the mile two back and a last start third at Flemington over the 1600m as well on Emirates Stakes Day
  • #8 Ninth Legion ($8.50) – John Hawkes-trained Fastnet Rock four-year-old on the improve howefully after an 11th behind White Sage in the Festival Stakes over 1500m on November 30, excuses that day however and tipped to bounce back to the form that saw them defeat Said Com in the November Stakes before that
  • #7 Strike The Stars ($9) – Anthony Cummings-trained gelding won at Randwick in October before a third at Flemington behind speedster Smokin’ Joey on Derby Day, two latest runs have been below par however including their Festival Stakes ninth so need to be at their best here

There are then a host of other hopefuls all fighting for next best in betting.

Among the other top fancies are the likes of Chris Waller’s Hawkesbury Cup winner Coup Ay Tee ($10), their always honest stablemate Said Com ($11) and Jason Coyle’s Scream Machine ($12) coming off a Goulburn Cup fourth.
