Temple Of Boom Tops George Moore Stakes 2015 Odds

Despite failing to win a previous race from a dozen starts at Doomben Racecourse the markets for Saturday’s 2015 George Moore Stakes in Brisbane are led by Tony Gollan’s Group 1 winner Temple Of Boom.

Veteran Piccolo nine-year-old Temple Of Boom, a winner of over $1.9 million in prize money over his 61 start career to date, is one of 12 sprinters lining up in this summer’s $200,000 Group 3 Channel 7 George Moore Stakes (1200m).

Due to run as Doomben Race 7 at 4:17pm (QLD time), the George Moore Stakes is the opening leg of the Brisbane Summer Racing Series Triple Crown and features an imposing five from the local Gollan stables.

Temple Of Boom leads both the field and the current George Moore Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, who are offering Best Tote or SP + 20% on the Queensland Group 3 on Saturday, paying $4.80 to break a notable winning drought.

The gelding, winner of the 2012 Group 1 The Galaxy in Sydney, hasn’t won a race since April last year in Eagle Farm’s Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m) and has had a dozen starts at Doomben for zero wins.

His latest run at the track was a brave fourth to Ciaron Maher’s top mare Srikandi in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) in early June.

Since then he has had two starts for a first-up third in Group 2 company at Randwick before a failed 14th of 15 runners in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) in Melbourne, an effort the bookies suggest he can atone for as the class horse here.

Two runners are equal $5.50 second picks in George Moore Stakes betting for Saturday with Gollan’s fittest runner Didntcostalot in barrier five and the Kelly Schweida-trained mare Miss Cover Girl on the move in the markets despite drawing the outside alley.

Tegan Harrison rides Gollan’s $3,000 bargain buy, Danerich seven-year-old Didntcostalot boasting a top Doomben record of three wins, a second and a third from five runs.

That trio of wins at the track come within his past four stars and including a smart two and a quarter length effort over 1100m over Saluter on October 31.

Monashee Mountain four-year-old Miss Covergirl has the outside alley so will need luck with Glen Colless retaining the ride, but is in flying form having last ran a quarter length away third in a Randwick Group 3 over the distance from another double digit barrier (10 of 13) in late October.

She has won a subsequent Deagon trial over 800m by two and a half lengths and looks ready to fire at Doomben where she has had nine previous runs for two wins, two seconds and two thirds.

Third favourite at $7 is Gollan’s rails-drawn Fontelina who is set to improve on two unplaced runs interstate, while Architect follows closely at $7.50 in barrier six.

Prepared locally by Sherrie Lawlor, Bel Esprit five-year-old Architect has run top three in his four most recent runs including a third to Didntcostalot last time out.

He was runner-up to Miss Cover Girl in a recent trial with Robbie Fradd in the saddle who stays on for the Group 3 run on the weekend.

Rounding out the single-figure fancies for the George Moore this season at $9, in from $10, is then Charge Account drawn a treat in gate four.

A winner of two of his past three runs, the Doug Roberts-trained six-year-old took out a race at the track and distance from the same barrier earlier this month by nearly three lengths and is looking to repeat the feat in tougher company on Saturday.

Runner-up in the same lead-up race, Feltre, meanwhile is at a juicier $15 to turn the tables despite dropping from 57.5kg to the 54kg minimum.
