2015 Bletchingly Stakes Nominations Released

Nominations are now out for Saturday’s Bletchingly Stakes 2015, the weight-for-age feature at Caulfield Racecourse the final Black-Type of the season.

Early entries feature 11 sprints for this year’s $150,000 Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m), nominations now extended until 10am (AEST) on Tuesday morning.

Easily the top-rated hopeful in the current list of nominees is the Robbie Laing-trained Lord Of The Sky who ran fourth in the feature last year on the back of a Group 3 Sir John Monash Stakes win at the same track.

The four-year-old Danerich stallion was on fire in April and May of this year running second in both Sydney’s Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) behind superstar Chautauqua and then the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) in Adelaide.

He failed to reproduce that same great form however when running a disappointing seventh, unsuccessfully defending his Monash Stakes title on July 4.

Laing though is confident of an improved run in the Bletchingly on Saturday where Lord Of The Sky will face a similar field of rivals to that which got the better of him in the Monash Stakes on the back of a solid 600m gallop between races at Cranbourne on Sunday.

The most notable omission though is Monash Stakes winner Miss Promiscuity who was set to back-up this weekend.

Co-trainers David Hayes & Tom Dabernig however have not nominated for the mare, their sole Bletchingly Stakes entry being Petrology.

A three-year-old Fastnet Rock colt, Group 2 Sandown Guineas winner Petrology hasn’t raced since running 12th to Wandjina in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington in early March.

He is one of just two three-year-old taking on the older horses if accepted for Saturday’s feature along with the Danny Curran-trained filly Written Dash whose latest run was a ninth over 1400m at Caulfield on April 4.

Best out of the Monash Stakes with the winner out of the mix is the Peter Moody-trained mare Angels Beach, the five-year-old daughter of Bel Esprit crossing second last time out.

She is set for the breeding barn and Moody is hoping for a second Black-Type win to put on her record before retirement following her victory in a Listed Adelaide race earlier in her career.

There are three last start winners among the Bletchingly Stakes nominations this year with Jersey Whistler, the Mick Price-trained Pilly’s Wish and Rich Jack who has won two out of his past three starts.

Other top entries include Robbie Griffiths’ Group placed Nadeem Lass and returning seven-year-old mare Platinum Rocker.
