Malaguerra Leads 2016 Star Kingdom Stakes Field & Odds

The super-consistent Lee & Anthony Freedman-trained Malaguerra is early favourite to take out the Star Kingdom Stakes 2016 at Rosehill Racecourse in Sydney on Easter Saturday.

Set to run as Race 4 at 2:30pm (AEDT) on The BMW Day, this year’s $150,000 Group 3 Star Kingdom Stakes (1200m) features a final field of 11 sprinters.

Coming up trumps with barrier one for jockey Blake Shinn is Magnus four-year-old Malaguerra who has won his past three starts, all at Flemington, dating back to last Melbourne Cup Day.

His latest win was a first-up success in the Listed Bob Hoystead Stakes (1000m), the gelding racing in Sydney for the first time this weekend.

Already he is well supported to handle his maiden run this way of going sitting top of the Star Kingdom Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $3.20 for the win, despite going up from 54.5kg last start to 57.5kg on the weekend.

He is nominated for a shot at the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick Saturday week on Day 1 of ‘The Championships’ and is at a pre-field price of $26 to win the elite level.

Following in Star Kingdom Stakes betting this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival at $4.40 is Alberto Magic who is also on a winning streak and drawn a treat one outside the favourite in gate two.

Prepared at Wyong by Allan Denham the Magic Albert five-year-old has a top Rosehill record of two wins and a second from three starts to date, the latest a narrow effort on March 12 to take out the Group 3 Maurcie McCarton Stakes (1100m).

He had a nice inside alley draw for that black-type success and Jason Collett retains the ride on the weekend as the horse goes up one kilo to 56.5kg.

The other three single figure hopes in the markets are the 59kg top weight Target In Sight ($7) who returns to racing here, Bachman ($7) with the outside alley to overcome and Angels Beach ($8.50).

Joe Pride’s Nadeem six-year-old Target In Sight gives the weight away to his rivals, but is a first-up flyer boasting four wins and two seconds from six previous first-up wins so far.

His last start was way back in June last year at the Gold Coast when runner-up to Dothraki in the Group 3 WJ Healy Stakes (2000m), and he has had two trials since.

Twelve months ago Target In Sight finished runner-up in the Star Kingdom Stakes behind Generalife (2015), who placed third in both the Doomben 10,000 and Stradbroke Handicap in Brisbane that winter, and is out to go one better off the lengthy let-up this season.

Bachman has work to do from barrier 11, Kerrin McEvoy retaining the ride on the Gerald Ryan-trained All American four-year-old who ran third to Alberto Magic in the Group 3 lead-up a fortnight ago.

Angles Beach is also prepared by Ryan, Tim Clark booked to partner the Bel Esprit mare second-up after her Maurcie McCarten Stakes second when returning.

At more generous odds but not without claims to win are the likes of Sebring five-year-old Coolring ($10) and the John O’Shea-trained Maurcie McCarten fourth placegetter Barbed ($12) drawn favourably in barriers five and three respectively.
