2015 Fred Best Classic Field & Odds: Najoom Clear Favourite

Gai Waterhouse’s in-form filly Najoom has opened red hot favourite to score her second Group 3 on the trot when she debuts in Brisbane in Saturday’s Fred Best Classic 2015 on Saturday.

Bringing the Doomben 10,000 Day action to a close as Race 9 at 4:32pm (AEST), this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Suez Environment Fred Best Classic (1350m) features a field of 16 three-year-olds.

The best fancied in the latest Fred Best Classic odds at Ladbrokes.com.au is the Waterhouse-trained Northern Meteor filly Najoom at $3.60 who has already been well backed in from an opening price of $4.50.

She is drawn out wide in barrier 15 but that hasn’t stopped the punters coming for the Tommy Berry mount, Najoom having won four of her past six starts to date including the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) run at Rosehill on May 9 last time out.

Three other runners are also under $10 to win the Fred Best this Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival including current second pick in the markets, Rekindled Power ($5.50).

The bookies definitely aren’t shying away from the widely-drawn runners here with the Paul Messara-trained Redoute’s Choice colt Rekindled Power drawn the extreme outside (16).

Third two back behind Delectation in the Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) in the wet, the visiting Sydney galloper comes off a close fourth when under a length off the winner in the Listed Mick Dittman Plate (1200m) at the track last time out and has won his only other start over Saturday’s distance.

Rounding out the single figure hopes are then Sarajevo ($7) and Traveston Girl ($8.50).

Representing John O’Shea and the Godolphin racing operation, Lonhro gelding Sarajevo ran sixth in the Golden Rose last September and comes off a half-length away second in the Mick Dittman, which is shaping up as the form line to follow heading into the Fred Best.

Traveston Girl meanwhile is locally trained by Tony Gollan and drawn in gate nine for jockey Zac Purton this weekend, the in-form Flying Spur filly Group 1 placed when runner-up in Melbourne’s Thousand Guineas over the Caulfield mile last October.

This time in she has run third in both her lead-up runs when beaten a length in the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) on April 25 and just over half a length in the Listed Juanmo Stakes (1200m) at Doomben on May 9.

Outside of those at double figures with genuine claims for the upset are the likes of Kelly Schweida’s recent Group 3 PJ Bell winner in Sydney Miss Cover Girl ($10), the Matt Laurie-trained Staviva ($11) and Lloyd Kennewell’s visiting Adelaide raider Silent Whisper ($12).
