2016 Lord Reims Stakes Field & Betting: Signoff Odds-On Favourite

Signoff from the Melbourne Cup winning stables of Darren Weir is the odds-on favourite to take out the Lord Reims Stakes 2016 at Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide this weekend.

Heading the South Australian racing action on Saturday, this year’s $120,000 Group 3 James Boag’s Premium Lord Reims Stakes (2600m) originally drew a final field of 15 stayers.

The early scratching of Dane Hussler (10) leaves 14 to fight it out for the $76,800 first prize, the favourite to take out the winnings being Weir’s classy gelding from Ballarat Signoff.

The Authorized six-year-old is very short in the current Lord Reims Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $1.35 to secure his second win from as many starts at the track.

His last victory was on Boxing Day at Caulfield when saluting with 60kg as a $21 roughie in the Listed Lord Stakes (1700m) before a first-up second at Moonee Valley.

On February 19 he was beaten a nostril-flare by Swacadelic in the Listed Torney Cup (2500m) carting a hefty 61.5kg, and he drops to a more manageable 57kg with apprentice Harry Coffey staying on this weekend.

There are just two other runners in this year’s Lord Reims Stakes field and markets under $10 for the win with Gamblin’ Guru and Jim’s Journey equal in betting at $8.50 each.

Prepared locally by gun training duo Leon Macdonald & Andrew Gluyas, New Approach five-year-old Gamblin’ Guru has had 20 previous starts at the track for a strong five wins, seven seconds and two thirds.

His latest was just two weeks ago in the Listed Birthday Card Stakes (2000m) when third beaten a neck in a blanket finish behind Go Dreaming.

He’s yet to be tested over the 2600m but ran a competitive fourth as a three-year-old in 2014’s Group 1 South Australian Derby (2500m) defeated under a length.

He also drops from 58kg last time out to 57kg here with jockey Jason Holder retaining the ride.

Also well weighted carrying 56.5kg is the Peter Blanch-trained Good Journey four-year-old Jim’s Journey.

He only goes up a kilo from the weight he had when nosed out of the Birthday Card Stakes win last time out on February 20 finishing second at his 10th Morphettville win.

The up-and-comer has won four times at the track and has winning form over the distance from last October, but has the outside barrier to overcome this weekend as he steps up into Group company for the first time.

The Lord Reims Stakes is a traditional Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival lead-up to the $400,000 Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) over the two miles, so many in the former are gearing up for a longer distanced run explaining the good odds on offer.

The next best in betting include the Tony McEvoy-trained ATC Cup runner-up in Sydney last November Lucky Lucky Lucky ($12), the aforementioned Birthday Card Stakes winner Go Dreaming ($18) and the Richard Laming-trained stallion Wales ($13).
