Stealing the show as Race 7 at 3:40pm (local) on Saturday in Queensland’s major meeting, this year’s $358,000 Group 2 All-New Jaguar F-Pace A.D. Hollindale Stakes (1800m) field features 14 runners.

Heading the latest AD Hollindale Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au at a firming $2.80 for the win, backed in early from $3.50, is the John O’Shea-trained four-year-old Hauraki.

The Reset gelding is a triple Group 1 placegetter having run second in the ATC Derby last year, third in the Chipping Norton to Winx this February and second to The United States in the Ranvet Stakes two back.

His latest run was in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick on April 9 when seventh to Lucia Valentina, but he drops in class and distance here and should get a gun run from gate two with James McDonald retaining the ride.

The only other single figure fancies in AD Hollindale Stakes betting currently are stablemate of the favourite Old North ($5.50) jumping from barrier one and the Steven O’Dea-trained Sir Moments ($9) looking to improve on his second to Leebaz in the race last Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

So will the well-backed Godolphin runners finish one-two on the day like they sit in the markets or is there an upset AD Hollindale Stakes result on the cards from the likes of Gai Waterhouse’s Melbourne Cup performed import Excess Knowledge ($10) or the Chris Waller-trained French expat Spiritjim ($10) in his Australian debut?


#5 Sir Moments ($9)

Going for a Queenslander and think this Brisbane-based galloper has what it takes to hold them off here and salute at a still very backable price. The five-year-old crossed a close second last year and is out to go one better. He has good form at the track (6-2-2-0) where he was last seen running second in the Gold Coast Stakes in March. Last start ran third over the mile in Black-Type company at the Sunshine Coast with 61kg. Comes back to 59kg at WFA here and the form is right.


#1 Volkstok’n’barrell ($15)

A genuine weight-for-age hope, this Kiwi raider is also no stranger to racing down under. The Donna Logan & Chris Gibbs-trained Tavistock four-year-old thrived in the Sydney autumn races as a 3YO when third in the ATC Derby on the back of a Rosehill Guineas win. Hit and miss since, but flying at home winning two Group 1s in February and March. Ran 10th to Winx in the Doncaster Mile in Sydney last start, will appreciate the extra metres here and can atone.


#14 Old North ($5.50)

The bookies better fancy the stablemate Hauraki, but this O’Shea-trained Lonhro colt has genuine claims. The three-year-old won the Group 2 Tulloch Stakes (2000m) two back before his last start second in the Group 3 Frank Packer Plate (2000m) in mid-April. Dropping in distance, up against a similar class, can surprise.
