I Am Invincible two-year-old Brazen Beau continues to dominate betting for this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Tatts Group J.J. Atkins (1600m), running as Race 6 at 2:20pm on Stradbroke Handicap Day.

A winner of two of their four starts to date, including the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) two back at Doomben, Brazen Beau is now teetering on the edge of odds-on territory in from $2.05 to $2.

They were beaten last time out by JJ Atkins rival Time For War in the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) but they missed the kick that day and with a better jump on Saturday should win running away over the mile.

The second pick in the JJ Atkins betting markets meanwhile is on the drift with the Gai Waterhouse-trained Almalad out from $4.60 to $5.

Drawn in gate nine of 11 with Tommy Berry booked for the ride, there’s a question of both class and distance here for the Sydney based Al Maher gelding.

Almalad may be undefeated but they’ve only had two runs, both over much shorter distances (1000m and 1200m) and both in Sydney.

They’re also untested in stakes company let along elite level, but Waterhouse is confident they’re ready for the challenge and will handle all of the above in the JJ Atkins.

Mick Price’s Victorian stakes winner Pressing meanwhile has remained steady at $8.50 as has the only other single figure chance with the Tony Gollan-trained Looks Like The Cat, coming off a second in the Champagne Stakes and third in the BRC Sires’ Produce, at $9.

The genuine JJ Atkins market mover though is the horse that beat Brazen Beau home last start, Time For War in from $15 to $10 over the past couple of days.

Gerald Ryan’s Snitzel colt Time For War won the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) in the mud at Rosehill in late March before their credible fourth in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce (1400m) also run on a Heavy track.

They can handle the rain if it falls as predicted in Brisbane then for Saturday, and also have Group 1 experience unlike the bulk of their rivals.

After a below par 10th in the Champagne Classic they atoned in the BRC Sires’ Produce for their upset win, but they’ll need to be improving when going up to the mile to hold off Brazen Beau this time if the favourite doesn’t miss the jump.
