General Truce Chasing Back-To-Back Wins In W.J. Adams Stakes

Trainer Ricky Maund is confident that tough sprinter General Truce can record his second straight win when he contests the Listed W.J. Adams Stakes (1000m) at Caulfield on Saturday.

General Truce returned to racing with a narrow win over Pocket Rockets and Kaiser Sun in the Listed Kensington Stakes  (1000m) at Flemington on January 18 and, despite being available at odds of $19, Maund believes that the son of Brief Truce is good enough to score back-to-back wins for the third time in his career.

“I’m as confident going into this as what I was going into his first-up run the other day,” Maund told AAP.

“The only query I had last start was the inside gate at Flemington but he overcame that and was too strong for them after getting a good ride.”

Robbie Laing-trained Lord Of The Sky is a clear favourite in W.J. Adams Stakes betting markets at odds of $2.10 and the resuming African Pulse ($4.60), Robert Smerdon-trained Shamal Wind ($8), Doveton Stakes winner Vatican ($13) and classy filly Kiss A Rose ($15) have all been backed to beat General Truce.

Maund admits that Lord Of The Sky is the horse to beat in the Listed event, but believes that General Truce is excellent value at his current price of $17.

“On paper this race doesn’t look any harder than the Flemington race last start, but there is the standout horse of Robbie Laing’s that makes his own luck by going forward,” Maund said.

General Truce’s win in the Kensington Stakes was his first victory since he took out the Group 3 McKay Stakes (1100m) at Morphettville in April last year, but he raced fairly without winning during the 2013 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

The six-year-old resumed with a fourth place finish in the Listed Carlyon Stakes (1000m) and finished third behind Kuroshio and Moment Of Change in the Group 2 McEwen Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley on September 14.

He failed to fire when ninth behind Samaready in the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1200m) and was sixth in the Apache Cat Classic (1000m) at Cranbourne before finishing his campaign in the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m) on October 19.
