Star Rolling after 2015 CF Orr Stakes Upset

Co-trainer Craig Widdison is hoping a leg injury that undid Star Rolling’s spring campaign won’t be an issue when the gelding resumes in a crack CF Orr Stakes 2015 field at Caulfield on Saturday.

Kicking off elite level racing for this year’s Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival, the $400,000 Group 1 C.F. Orr Stakesf (1400m) runs as Caulfield Race 8 at 5:50pm (AEDT) this weekend.

An imposing field of 15 will face off in the weight-for-age classic, the $3.10 favourite of which in the latest CF Orr Stakes odds at is the Peter Moody-trained Dissident in barrier seven.

Star Rolling meanwhile is a genuine CF Orr Stakes betting market mover.

After opening at $34 the bookies have slashed the price on the Casino Prince five-year-old who is now into $19 to win first-up.

The last time the galloper was in the winner’s stall was back in August last year when he narrowly defeated the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Spillway, a $12 chance in the CF Orr this weekend, in the Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield.

Four unplaced runs followed that preparation including two 10th place finishes in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) in Sydney behind He’s Your Man and the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) in Melbourne behind Happy Trails.

After the Mackinnon Widdison said they discovered a pulled muscle in the horse’s hindquarter that he has hopefully now recovered from.

“We’re hoping that doesn’t pose a problem again,” he told AAP this week.

Widdison and co-trainer Peter Morgan have given Star Rolling one official trial since when eighth over 800m at Cranbourne on January 29, hoping he runs well fresh as they’re predicting he will.

“We think he might be a bit of a fresh horse,” Widdison said.

“At this stage we’ve got it in our minds we might space his runs and keep him a bit fresher.”

The team opted to test Star Rolling in the CF Orr Stakes instead of a resuming run in the $150,000 Group 3 Carlyon Cup (1600m) and is hoping the decision pays off with a place in the top three.

“There doesn’t seem to be as much pace in the CF Orr so we thought we might as well have a go,” Widdison said.

“There’s a few stayers resuming so he might be able to get away with running a place in a Group One.”
