There are nine promising types facing off in this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Smithfield RSL Club San Domenico Stakes (1100m) the favourite of which is Nostradamus at $3.80 through Ladbrokes.com.au.

The Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes-trained Medaglia D’Oro colt is after his first win since a successful Flemington debut back in February.

He’s run twice since at Caulfield including a good run for seventh beaten under four lengths by talented filly and subsequent Golden Slipper runner-up Earthquake in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).

Nostradamus runs in Sydney for the first time then on the weekend but did trial well with a winning 760m Hawkesbury hitout to bring them up to standard on Monday.

There are four other single figure hopes in San Domenico Stakes betting then including the Gerald Ryan-trained Kindergarten Stakes runner-up Washington Heights ($4.20) and early market mover Ygritte ($5) also prepared by Ryan who heads towards the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) back at the track on September 13.

So are the first three in betting the trio you should lock in for the San Domenico Stakes trifecta?

Or should punters check out the hopefuls at more generous odds for an upset such as the Chris Waller-trained Law ($11) debuting for his new trainer or even Sheer Style ($14) out to improve on a last start second behind Inkling at Kensington on July 26?


#1 Law ($11)

Former Gai Waterhouse-trained Denman colt with Waller now and eager to kick off their 2014 Golden Rose campaign with a nice run here, two attempts at the track but out of the money both times when fourth in the Silver Slipper Stakes and then dead last (16th) behind the same filly Mossfun in the Golden Slipper, before that won back-to-back Randwick races including the Listed Breeders’ Plate so fresh form is good, expect that to come out first-up here on the back of a nice couple of trials. Has good gate speed, which he’ll need from barrier seven, but could be ridden back this time by Glyn Schofield.


#3 Nostradamus ($3.80)

Deserving favourite with nice barrier four draw and James McDonald, aboard the Group 1 performer for a winning Hawkesbury trial this week, staying on. Good during the Melbourne Festival of Racing, looks to handle the other way of going too and first-up winner at Flemington last season so should be right up there for the return. Wide barriers hampered their autumn prep so expect a better effort in bette races this time in start in on Saturday.


#5 Windjina ($9)

One of the likely pacemakers, Waterhouse’s widely drawn galloper has gate nine so work to do but smart enough to stay in it. Tommy Berry rides this Snitzel colt who should be ready to strike after two smart Randwick trials including a last start second when nudged out over 1050m on August 1, Todman Stakes fourth at Group 2 level last time out at the track, and Warwick Farm winner over 1000m in February so can win and can race well fresh.
