2015 All Aged Stakes Odds Update: Chautauqua Eases

Odds on the Team Hawkes-trained flyer Chautauqua to win back-to-back Group 1s at Randwick this autumn are on the drift with the All Aged Stakes 2015 favourite easing in the markets for this afternoon’s classic.

There are 13 gallopers lining up in the Group 1 Schweppes All Aged Stakes (1400m) at 3:45pm (AEST), which brings a close to Group 1 racing this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Ultra-consistent Encosta De Lago four-year-old Chautauqua, one of 10 individual Group 1 winners in the weight-for-age major, opened as short as $3 in the All Aged Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au earlier in the week.

He is now out to $3.20 however with some concerns that barrier one isn’t the best starting gate for the race.

Co-trainer John Hawkes however remains confident that Chautauqua, to be ridden by Tommy Berry, is the horse to beat and he won’t have any worries staying out of a traffic jam from the inside alley.

The Soft (6) track is of some concern to a number of the All Aged Stakes runners this year, but not Chautauqua who ran well on a rain-affected Randwick course last time out to win the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m).

The horse with the best finishing burst on the scene this autumn, Chautauqua now looks to join Bentley Biscuit (2007) and Shamekha (2005) as the other TJ Smith Stakes – All Aged Stakes double winners in the past decade.

Occupying the second line of All Aged Stakes betting at a firm $6 is then Terravista from the stable of Joe Pride, the Captain Rio five-year-old drawn one outside of the favourite in gate two.

Last time out the Darley Classic winner suffered his first loss from five runs at Randwick when third in the TJ Smith Stake but he should improve on that going out over 1400m, a distance that also looks to suit Chautauqua.

Along with the top fancy, the other big hopes to drift out in the markets are then William Reid Stakes winner Lucky Hussler ($6 out to $7) who could struggle to feature from the outside alley (13) and the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Caulfield Guineas winner Shooting To Win ($7.50 out to $8).

Also paying $8 for the win is fellow three-year-old Wandjina ($8).

The Snitzel colt won the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington last time out on March 7 so should have no issues over the distance, but will need to be on his toes from barrier 12.

Still, three-year-olds have a good recent record in the All Aged Stakes winning two of the past three editions with Atlantic Jewel (2012) and All Too Hard (2013).

Wandjina, to be ridden by Damien Oliver today, also boasts the Waterhouse factor with Gai having trained four previous All Aged Stakes winners.

The next best in betting just outside those at single figures are then Peter Moody’s retiring four-time Group 1 winner Dissident ($8.50 out to $10) looking to win his swansong at his pet distance and the third three-year-old in the mix Scissor Kick ($15) who should get a lovely run from barrier four.

The only other major All Aged Stakes market move of note is the price on Chris Waller’s roughie Weary who has been backed in from $61 to $41.

The five-year-old French import hasn’t won a race since the Group 2 Expressway Stakes (1200m) on a Soft (5) at Rosehill back in late January, his three subsequent runs all being on Good-rated tracks.

He was very disappointing last time out when 13th, beating home just one runner when six lengths off the winner in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m).

However with Randwick rated a Soft (6) today he’s tipped to appreciate the give out of the ground and run better than his outsider price suggests.
