Phelan Ready Stakes 2013 Betting Preview

Some important lead-up races to the bigger summer features in Queensland run at Brisbane’s Doomben Racecourse on Saturday including the 2013 Phelan Ready Stakes where Vienna Royale is the odds-on favourite.

Tony Gollan’s Falvelon colt may have drawn the far outside barrier in the 11-horse field for this year’s $100,000 Listed Walker Technical Phelan Ready Stakes (1010m) but that hasn’t stopped the bookies installing them at the top of the markets at a short $1.75.

They are one of just two in the male juvenile’s race with a previous race win on their record after they destroyed their rivals on debut here back in October.

After a seven and a half length trial win at the track in September Vienna Royale bought that same form to the races winning by five and a half over the same distance as Saturday’s assignment.

They may be odds-on but there’s plenty against Vienna Royale here as in the past three years, only one horse has won at Doomben over 1010m from barrier 11.

That’s an imposing stat and one jockey Michael Cahill, retaining the ride, will be out to overcome.

There is then only one other runner under double figures in the Phelan Stakes betting markets with Eljetem at $3.90.

Drawn in gate six the Bruce Hill-trained Gold Coast galloper debuted at Doomben on November 30 over 1110m on a Heavy (8) track.

They seemed to relish the muddy conditions that day and ran a good second to Celestial Dragon in the handicap showdown.

A barrier trial win at home followed this Tuesday with the Jet Spur colt out to break their maiden status when they return to Doomben this weekend.

Third pick at a more generous $12 is the unraced Kelly Schwedia-trained Lacada Rain.

The Manhattan Rain colt has no trial form to go on but should get a nice trail in behind Eljetem drawn one on their inside in barrier five with Timothy Bell to ride.

It’s then a battle for the next line of betting with three youngsters all at $13 with the rails-drawn Goluana, Gold Coast-trained Jet Spur colt Speedshow and Bassillique.

Wearing blinkers for their first-up run, Toby Edmonds’ I Am Invincible colt Bassillique is another runner coming up from the glitter strip on the back of two trials.

They ran fourth in both the first over 900m at home in November and then fourth at Doomben over 830m this week.

The Phelan Ready Stakes is a race worth tuning in for as the better performers could graduate to the $2 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) next month.

The best of the Phelan Ready hopes in the Magic Millions 2014 Classic odds, currently led by smart fillies Oakleigh Girl from Brisbane and Echo Gal from Sydney, is Vienna Royale at a quote of around $11.

To get behind your favourite two-year-olds either in one of the Doomben lead-ups this weekend, or the Gold Coast classic on January 11, make sure you’ve got an account open at where your first deposit will be matched dollar for dollar as a bonus bet up to $250 this summer!
