2014 Junamo Stakes Field & Odds – Srikandi & Miniature Do Battle

Two smart fillies are currently battling for favouritism in one of the support Doomben Cup Day races on Saturday with Srikandi and Miniature both well backed to win the Junamo Stakes 2014.

The fillies and mares quality handicap clash runs as Doomben Race 4 at 1:55pm (AEST), the field for the $100,000 Listed Designline Graphics Junamo Stakes (1200m) down to 13 following the early scratching of #12 Urgent Bells (8).

Currently leading the tight Junamo Stakes betting battle at $2.50 is the Ciaron Maher-trained Caulfield raider Srikandi.

The daughter of Dubawi is drawn to perfection in barrier two with Glen Boss to ride.

Boss replaced Craig Williams on the ultra-consistent filly last start and the pair enjoyed a two and a quarter length win over La Pieta in the Listed Silk Stocking (1200m) on the Gold Coast on May 3.

That was Srikandi’s fourth win from five career starts, her only loss being a close second first-up at Moonee Valley in February.

She’s won three straight since then on all types of ground from a Good (3) to the Heavy (8) on the Gold Coast last time out.

Srikandi certainly has the class and form to win again in her Brisbane debut but she’s going to have to be at her best to hold off the $3 second favourite and Junamo Stakes market mover Miniature.

Jumping from barrier six with Kiwi expat James McDonald aboard, John O’Shea’s Exceed And Excel filly races in the sunshine state for the first time here off some promising Sydney form.

A winner of three of her eight starts so far, most recently at Kensington back in December, Miniature has had two Group 3 runs this time in at Randwick.

The first produced a close third behind Politeness in the PJ Bell Stakes (1200m) run on a Heavy (9) track on April 12.

She was then last seen finishing further back in the James Carr Stakes when sixth to Estonian Princess on April 26 when stepped up to 1400m.

Dropping back to 1200m then on Saturday should see her sharp and the bookies are tipping a tight finish.

The two other single figure Juanmo Stakes chances are then She’s Clean ($8) with the rails run from barrier one and She Can Skate ($9.50) jumping from five.

Chris Waller’s Redoute’s Choice mare She’s Clean has plenty of experience but has been out of form of late including her last start 10th when well beaten by stable mate Catkins in the Group 3 Wiggle Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm in March.

She Can Skate then represents Deagon-based Brisbane trainer Vicki Chalmers, the Bradbury’s Luck four-year-old racing for the first time since her Melbourne raid in the winter – spring that finished on a low but produced some good runs including a Moonee Valley victory in June.

She’s had two recent Deagon trials however, winning them both, so is ready to strike first-up here.

The only other hope under $20 is then Single Style ($11) to be ridden by Craig Newitt who is bound for Malaysia next month, Gary Portelli’s Not A Single Doubt mare last seen running fifth at Randwick three weeks back.

The full Juanmo Stakes 2014 field, barriers and fixed win odds are all listed in the table below.

The prices are current now and available for you to lock in online at Ladbrokes.com.au who are also offering an exclusive $3 market on Srikandi for the first 1000 customers only so hurry!
