2016 All Aged Stakes Form Guide & Preview

A small but classy field of just eight gallopers faces off in this year’s $600,000 Group 1 Schweppes All Aged Stakes (1400m), which is due to run as Randwick Race 7 at 3:45pm (AEDT).

It is a wide open All Aged Stakes betting market this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival with five of the eight all at single-figures and under $7 for the win.

Leading the current All Aged Stakes odds at $3.60 is the Chris Waller-trained Hinchinbrook colt Press Statement chasing his second Group 1 success after the Caulfield Guineas win in Melbourne last spring over the mile.

He won again first-up in the Hobartville Stakes before his Randwick Guineas second as the beaten favourite and his last start third to Winx in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m).

Hugh Bowman is back on the youngster here after James McDonald had the mount last time out, and chases his second winning All Aged Stakes ride after success aboard Racing to Win (2008).

Second favourite and the early All Aged Stakes market mover is Malaguerra ($4.60 into $4.20), who is also leading all-in betting for Brisbane’s Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) in June.

Lee & Anthony Freedman saddle-up the Magnus four-year-old who chases his fifth straight win, and who is just ahead of the Gai Waterhouse-trained filly English ($4.60) in the markets.

Waterhouse is the race’s most successful trainer having prepared four previous All Aged Stakes winners with: All Our Mob (1997), Arlington Road (2003), Shamekha (2005) and Bentley Biscuit (2007).

So will one of the top three fancies salute, or does the All Aged Stakes 2016 form guide reveal value further down the markets from the likes of the Darren Weir-trained Black Heart Bart ($6) or Waller’s other runner Kermadec ($6.50)?
