Stratum Star Leads 2016 Blamey Stakes Field & Betting

Melbourne Cup winning trainer Darren Weir makes a four-pronged attack on the Blamey Stakes 2016 field at Flemington on ‘Super Saturday’ including the early favourite Stratum Star.

A total of 11 milers are in the mix for this year’s $200,000 Group 2 Incognitus Blamey Stakes (1600m), four of which are prepared by Weir.

Leading early Blamey Stakes betting through at a short $2.90 for the win is the stable’s last start Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) runner-up Stratum Star.

The four-year-old Stratum stallion is best known for his own elite level win in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Melbourne last September, after which he ran third in the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m).

He has had two runs this time in including the improved Futurity Stakes second, form the bookies are tipping to stack up in easier company this weekend when Stratum Star jumps from gate seven with Mark Zahra in the saddle.

Weir also prepares the 59kg top weight Trust In A Gust, a $5 chance in the markets, the Keep The Fait five-year-old also a Futurity Stakes graduate having run sixth beaten under two lengths.

He hasn’t won a race since the Toorak Handicap in October of 2014 however, which followed his Sir Rupert Clarke win in the same year, so it has been a long time between drinks for the injury-prone galloper.

Rounding out Weir’s contingent are Brad Rawiller’s mount Lidari who has a solid Flemington record (7-1-3-0) and the rails-drawn Manndawi who pay $26 each for an upset Blamey Stakes win on Saturday.

The other single figure fancies aside from Stratum Star and Trust In A Gust are the Lloyd Williams-owned The United States ($4.40) and Lindsay Park’s He Or She ($5.50) drawn alongside each other in barriers three and four respectively.

Robert Hickmott prepares Galileo stallion The United States who won the Group 2 Moonee Valley Cup (2500m) last October defeating subsequent $101 Melbourne Cup winner Prince Of Penzance.

He was 14th in the two mile classic next-up before returning a fortnight ago for a fifth under two lengths from the winner in the Futurity Stakes, which could prove the form line to follow into the Blamey.

The David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Kendal Star five-year-old He Or She meanwhile comes out of the Group 2 Peter Young Stakes (1800m) when 10th to Saturday’s Australian Cup favourite Bow Creek.

The step back down to a mile should see improved form, the gelding boasting two wins from three previous runs at the distance and he was also only beaten two and a half lengths by Turn Me Loose in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) at the track and distance during November’s Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The best of the double figure hopes is the market mover Kenjorwood ($15 into $11) prepared by Peter Moody who has a good Flemington (7-2-1-1) and 1600m (7-2-3-0) record in easier company.
