2014 WJ Adams Stakes Betting Odds: Top Three Hard to Split

The bookmakers are having a hard time separating the top three in WJ Adams Stakes 2015 betting ahead of Monday’s Australia Day showdown at Sandown-Hillside.

The Quarterback

The opening black-type on the program, this year’s $120,000 Listed Mal Seccull W.J. Adams Stakes (1000m) has attracted a small field of just seven sprinters.

Four of those are under $10 to win in the current WJ Adams Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au including a dominant trio batting for top spot in the markets.

Currently winning the fight for favouritism at $2.70 is The Quarterback who shoots for his third win on the trot.

Drawn the outside gate for jockey Matthew Allen, Robbie Griffiths’ promising Street Boss four-year-old gets in with just 54kg which is a drop from the 55.5kg the gelding carried to victory in the Listed Kensington Stakes (1000m) last start at Flemington on January 10.

Before that the 2015 Newmarket Handicap-bound galloper won over the same track and distance nine days earlier, Monday seeing him shoot for his third win from four starts over the 1000m.

It will be his first look at Sandown but he’s in flying form and has a $1 million Group 1 target in his sights this Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

Hot on The Quarterback’s heels are then the rails-drawn Shamal Wind ($3.20) and Peter Moody’s multiple Group 1 winner Moment Of Change ($3.50).

Dwayne Dunn rides Robert Smerdon’s Dubawi mare Shamal Wind from barrier one in this with the five-year-old looking to break a succession of four straight third place finishes going back to last September.

The closest of those was when she ran a nose away third to Miracles Of Life in a blanket finish for the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m) on Caulfield Cup Day.

She was last seen running at Flemington on November 6 in the Group 3 G.H. Mumm Stakes (1100m), won by Vain Queen, so is first-up here.

Her record fresh is imposing with four wins from five runs and she also boasts three wins from four starts over the distance so with the right run on the inside she could be hard to hold out.

The class horse of the race is the also-resuming Moment Of Change, Luke Nolen with the ride on Peter Moody’s Barley A Moment six-year-old from gate three.

A triple Group 1 champ, it’s been a while between drinks for Moment Of Change who lumps a hefty 61.5kg top weight on Monday in his first run since finishing sixth to Magnifisio in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) in Perth in late November.

The last of the single figure hopes at $9 is then Sumakaray in barrier two and coming off a close second when only a neck off The Quarterback in the Kensington Stakes.

43-start veteran The Vatican then follows paying $13 before Klishina ($31) and Canali ($51) round out this year’s WJ Adams Stakes field and betting markets.
