Tramway Stakes 2014 Tips

The last of the five Group races on the Randwick program this Saturday is the 2014 Tramway Stakes where the likes of Joe Pride’s Group 1 winner Tiger Tees and Chris Waller’s French import Weary look good chances to back.

A full field of 16 gallopers is engaged to face off in the $175,000 Group 2 Tattersalls Club Tramway Stakes (1400m) with markets at led by the Astronomer Royal five-year-old Weary ($3.60).

Third in the Doncaster Mile over the 1600m here in the autumn and runner-up in the All Aged Stakes also at Group 1 level, the gelding has the fitness edge over the bulk of this field that resume racing ahead of the spring riches.

First-up in the Missile Stakes Weary ran fifth to Sweet Ideal just 1.5 lengths off the winner and then was last seen back at Randwick on August 23 when sixth behind Tiger Tees in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m).

Racing over the same track and distance this weekend he gets a chance to turn the tables on his last start conqueror with Group 1 The Galaxy winner Tiger Tees the $5 second pick in the markets and the only other runner under double figures to win.

So will one of the two single figure hopes get the job done for the punters in the Tramway?

Or is an upset result possible from a longer priced hope such as the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Not A Single Doubt mare Gypsy Diamond ($12), ATC Derby third placed Hooked ($14), Crown Oaks winner Kirramosa ($14) or fellow Group 1 winning mare Lucia Valentina ($14) who took out the Vinery Stud Stakes before an ATC Oaks third to Rising Romance in April?


#1 Tiger Tees ($5)

Surprised Pride’s Group 1 sprint winner isn’t favourite after the Dubawi seven-year-old won his opening two races this time in. Took out the Group 3 Aurie’s Star down the Flemington straight first-up and then went up to 1400m for a win at this track and distance in the Warwick Stakes against a very good field defeating the likes of Royal Descent and Criterion. A known mudlark that will thrive on another rain affected track, in-form with elite class facing an easier assignment than last time out. Easy money.


#16 My Sabeel ($15)

My Sabeel is up in class here after catching the eye with a victory over Bennetta in the Group 3 Toy Show Quality (1300m) at Randwick late last month. Two weeks between runs looks ideal for this Savebeel mare, now seven-years-old, who is a veteran of 38 starts before this. She’s only won six but loves a wet track so if more rain falls will be right up there. Can’t ignore a mare in form and she’s had three top three runs in August leading up to this and deserves a shot again.


#6 Weary ($3.60)

Class import and the market mover, don’t think there will be much in it but think the favourite will be rolled. Gets a two kilo weight advantage over Tiger Tees with 56kg here and Hugh Bowman to ride. Is fit racing third-up and is another known wet tracker that will feature on the rain-affected course.
