Ken Russell Memorial Classic 2014 Field & Odds

The third race on the program for Saturday’s early Queensland Winter Racing Carnival meet, this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Moreton Hire Ken Russell Memorial Classic (1200m) features a final field of 15 two-year-olds.

Many of the Ken Russell hopefuls were also nominated this week for the upcoming $500,000 Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) at Eagle Farm on Stradbroke Handicap Day, June 7.

Current favourite in the Ken Russell Memorial Classic odds at $3 is Exceedingly Good filly Aimee.

She’s won three from five to date, her trio of wins all in a row leading up to this where she sees a Group class field for the first time.

After back-to-back wins in Brisbane Aimee returned home in mid-March and enjoyed a two length win over 1200m in the Sky Racing 2YO Plate.

Since then she’s kept fit with a winning trial at Deagon on April 24 and now looks prime for her weekend assignment.

The next best in betting at a quote for $5 is then Sagatona with a nice gate three draw and Damian Browne to ride.

Liam Birchely’s Brisbane-based Real Saga filly has Group 3 form from the summer when third to Unencumbered in the BJ McLachlan at Doomben, and was also an eye-catching sixth in the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic here in January.

She ran again at Eagle Farm on April 19 but could only manage to finish seventh to Shinji in a run she’s tipped to improve on second-up in the Ken Russell.

Also under double figures to win are then the rails-drawn Grapevine ($6.50), Sarisara ($7) and Ryan’s Rogue ($9.50) coming off a win on debut last tart.

Another top local hope, the Bryan Guy-trained Denman filly Grapevine will get the run of the race here as she looks to improve on her sixth at Eagle Farm to Shinji a fortnight ago.

Toowoomba-based Sarisara also ran in that same two-year-olds’ handicap, the Rex Lipp-trained Red Dazzler filly doing well for their fourth.

Three others then also sit under $20 in the latest Ken Russell Memorial Classic betting markets with Hollywood Barbie ($15) last seen winning her debut at home at Murwillumbah in late December, the Pat Duff-trained Our Rock O’Reilly ($18) with the far outside barrier to overcome and Choc Mountain ($19) for Beaudesert trainer Ben Ahrens.
