Boban Leads 2014 Memsie Stakes Odds

After three horses opened equal favourites to win the new racing season’s opening Group 1 race this weekend money has come hard and fast for the Chris Waller-trained Boban to win the Memsie Stakes 2014.

Heading the Caulfield card in Melbourne on Saturday, this year’s $400,000 Group 1 New Zealand Bloodstock Memsie Stakes (1400m) features a field of 11 top gallopers including six individual Group 1 winners who you can back at Ladbrokes.com.au and get your money back up to $50 as a bonus bet if they run second!

One of those comes from the four-time Sydney premiership winning stables of Waller who saddles up his three time elite level champ Boban from gate nine on Saturday with Glyn Schofield to ride.

Last seen in the winner’s stall when securing his hat-trick of Group 1s in the Chipping Norton Stakes over the mile in early March, Boban ran first-up this time in on August 9 when fourth in the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m).

It was a brave run after he got blocked during the run and resulted in the Bernardini gelding crossing under a length off the winner Sweet Idea.

Originally the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Randwick last Saturday was going to be his second-up run this campaign, however a Heavy track saw Waller scratch him from the race in favour of being saved for the Memsie.

Memsie Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au feature five single-figure fancies including the market mover and current favourite at $4.60 Boban.

He’s followed in the markets then by Messene ($5) and Moment Of Change ($5.50).

The Team Hawkes-trained Cox Plate hope Messene is another Warwick Stakes scratching looking for a Group 1 win second-up after a nice run in the Missile Stakes.

The Lonhro six-year-old, to be ridden by Dwayne Dunn from barrier four on the weekend, crossed second in the Missile Stakes and is set to improve going up to the 1400m.

It’s a distance he has had four starts over for three wins and a second, but Saturday will be a genuine test as he races at Caulfield for the first time in weight-for-age – conditions he is relatively untested at.

Moment Of Change meanwhile is also a 1400m specialist but has the Caulfield record to back it up as well.

Peter Moody’s Barley A Moment gelding is undefeated over this track and distance and has three Group 1 wins over the 1400m at Caulfield, most recently the CF Orr Stakes and Futurity Stakes back-to-back in February.

That’s an imposing record and one he is looking to add to this weekend after getting rolled first-up under handicap conditions when carrying 62kg to winner Hard Stride’s minimum 54kg in the Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield a fortnight ago.

Also under $10 in Memsie Stakes betting with genuine claims are then Gai Waterhouse’s Missile Stakes winning mare Sweet Idea ($6.50) to be ridden by Craig Newitt for the first time and four-time Group 1 champion Silent Achiever ($9.50).

Prepared by Roger James in New Zealand, O’Reilly mare Silent Achiever was an autumn revelation down under last season with wins in the Ranvet Stakes and The BMW in Sydney.

She’s favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au to win the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) on October 25 but is focused on Melbourne Cup bid in November, but a first-up win here wouldn’t surprise too many.

Other notable hopes at more generous prices then include one-time Melbourne Cup favourite Puissance De Lune ($11) with the rails run, Moody’s Randwick Guineas winner Dissident ($15) kicking off his campaign and last year’s Cox Plate runner-up Happy Trails ($16) who will be better over more distance.
