Petracca Heads 2015 Anzac Day Stakes Field & Odds

The nicely-drawn Darren Weir-trained grey Petracca is favoured to break his maiden status when he jumps top fancy in the Anzac Day Stakes 2015 at Flemington Racecourse this weekend.

Based at Ballarat, the Starcraft gelding is one of 15 two-year-olds accepted to face off in the $120,000 Listed Phillip Schuler Anzac Day Stakes (1400m) on VRC St Leger Stakes Day in Melbourne on Saturday.

Drawn on the rails with barrier one and Brad Rawiller riding, Petracca has his fourth career start and shoots for his first win following a brave second to The Grey Flash in the Group 3 SA Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Morphettville on April 11.

The latest Anzac Day Stakes odds at have Petracca installed as the narrow $5 favourite, followed closely by two $6 hopes in Lizard Island and More Than Most who are also both yet to taste success.

Chris Parnham rides Pat Hyland’s Sebring colt Lizard Island from barrier 10, the chestnut having just his second career start after a second on debut at Caulfield over 1100m at the start of the month with Parnham also aboard for that.

More Than Most has an awkward barrier 13 of 15 draw for him and jockey Michael Walker to overcome, the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained More Than Ready colt having his third run.

Two back he was sixth to Thurlow in the Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes (1000m) at Sandown-Hillside in February then on April 4 he ran in the same two-year-olds’ handicap that Lizard Island graduates from.

Also at single figures to win the major support race at Flemington on Saturday are the widely-drawn My Poppette ($7) and Zarabeel ($9.50) jumping from barriers 14 and 15 respectively.

Colin & Cindy Alderson prepare Snippetson filly My Poppette out of their Cranbourne base, the up-and-comer shooting for her second win at start number three and coming off a third over the 1200m at Flemington on April 11.

Stephen Baster rides the Leon & Troy Corstens-trained, New Zealand-bred Savabeel filly Zarabeel who also comes off the Black Vanquish-won Flemington race that produced My Poppette having run one further back in third.

Other longer priced hopes with genuine claims for an upset then include Shaune Ritchie’s visiting New Zealand-trained filly Let Her Rip ($10) drawn well in barrier three for her first run in Australia, the Greg Eurell-trained Street Sense colt Four By Four ($12) in gate two for jockey Dwayne Dunn and local Danzero gelding Zero Red ($14) who ran fifth in Morphetville’s Sires’ Produce last time out.
