Eleven classy fillies and mares have been confirmed to take to the barriers for Saturday’s Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) at Doomben; a race that has been won by a number of standout performers through recent seasons, including Srikandi.
Exciting filly Ghisoni will make her Brisbane racing debut in the Glenlogan Park Stakes and remains a clear $1.75 favourite in betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of the Chris Waller-trained Amicus ($4.60).
Will Ghisoni justify her resounding favouritism and win the 2016 Glenlogan Park Stakes, or will one of her talented rivals claim a major upset?
Godolphin filly Ghisoni is arguably the class horse of the 2016 Glenlogan Park Stakes field, and while requiring luck in transit from barrier 10, will be partnered by James McDonald and should prove very difficult to beat. Taking out a pair of Sydney minors on debut in November, the Lonhro filly resumed this year for success in the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) before running on for a pleased sixth in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m). Freshened-up prior to her run for fifth in the Group 2 Arrowfield Sprint (1200m) during The Championships, Ghisoni has trialled well in the lead-up to the Glenlogan Park Stakes and should be well-suited to the conditions of the race.
Cradle Me ($12)
Cradle Me is a proven performer at the class and distance, has drawn ideally in barrier 6 with notable hoop Zac Purton in the saddle, and arguably offers punters the best value in 2016 Glenlogan Park Stakes betting markets at $12 to win or $3 to finish in the first three. Capping an impressive 2015 campaign with consecutive wins in the Listed Razor Sharp Handicap (1200m) and Listed Canterbury Classic (1200m), the Easy Rocking mare returned this time for fifth in the Group 3 Wenona Girl Quality (1200m) before running fourth in the Group 3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m). Having placed third in the Listed Luskin Star Stakes (1400m) a fortnight ago, Cradle Me is a leading contender for a first three finish this weekend.
Traveston Girl ($21)
Traveston Girl will relish the front-running conditions of Doomben, but will need luck early to find the speed from the wide barrier 11 in the Glenlogan Park Stakes. A strong and consistent performer for Tony Gollan through her entire racing career to date, the Flying Spur mare produced a number of typically slick efforts over a summer campaign, highlighted by wins in each of the Listed Recognition Stakes (1600m) and Listed Brisbane Handicap (1640m). Sure to have taken plenty of benefit from a first-up run in the Listed Silk Stocking (1200m) on May 7th, Traveston Girl will relish a step-up in distance this weekend.
