Yesterday’s Songs Leads 2015 Regal Roller Stakes Field & Odds

This weekend a bumper field of sprinters will face off in the Regal Roller Stakes 2015 at Caulfield Racecourse on PB Lawrence Stakes Day including narrow favourite Yesterday’s Songs coming off a Flemington win last time out.

Set to run as the penultimate event on the Caulfield race card on Saturday, this year’s $120,000 Listed Winslow Group Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) jumps as Race 8 at 4:40pm (AEST) and features a capacity field of 16 starters plus an emergency in the Mick Price-trained Pressing.

Current favourite at $5 for the win through Ladbrokes.com.au is the Michael Moroney-trained Henrythenavigator five-year-old Yesterday’s Songs who comes off a 1400m win at Flemington from June 13.

The Group 3 placed, Group 1 performed gelding has had just the one previous run at Caulfield for a third back in July last year, but after the smart win last time out the bookies are taking no chances here.

Second pick in the tight Regal Roller Stakes betting odds at a current quote of $6.50 is the returning Iffraaj mare Sardaaj, the four-year-old well fancied to continue her good record despite drawing the outside alley for her hoop Dwayne Dunn to overcome.

Yet to finish outside the first two with two wins and two seconds from her four starts to date, the lightly-raced Kiwi expat makes her Australian race debut this weekend having run exclusively back in New Zealand so far.

The widely-drawn Hawkes Racing representative’s two summer runs back home were both impressive when runner-up in a Group 2 event over the mile on Boxing Day last December and then her second to Gaultier in the Group 1 Levin Classic (1600m) on January 17.

There are another seven single figure fancies in the Regal Roller Stakes markets this weekend paying between $8 and $9 starting with the emergency runner Pressing ($8).

Drawn in gate four if he gains a run, Price’s four-year-old Sebring stallion hasn’t raced since Cox Plate Day last October when seventh in the Group 3 Red Anchor Stakes (1200m), but looks set to resume racing after a nice trial win at Cranbourne on Monday in the mud over 990m.

Third in the 2014 JJ Atkins in Brisbane, Pressing is undefeated at Caulfield with two previous wins at the track including the Listed Redoute’s Choice Stakes (1200m) in May last year.

The next best in betting at $8.50 is then the consistent Stratum Star drawn awkwardly in barrier 15 for Darren Weir’s returning stallion.

A four-year-old son of Stratum, Stratum Star has run top three in 11 of his 15 starts so far including a brave third to Wandjina in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) in March.

Saturday’s distance is likely to be a little short, but after a second to Chill Party last start in the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) he can’t be ruled out completely in an open market.

Other notable single figure fancies include the Group 1 placed rails-drawn top weight Fast ‘N’ Rocking ($9) who carries 60kg with Damian Lane riding from barrier one, the David Brideoake-trained market mover Griante ($9) running first-up this weekend in her first start since placing second in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m) at Randwick in April on the back of a Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) third at Moonee Valley in late March and the John O’Shea-trained Canny Lad gelding Barbed ($9) drawn well in gate two.
