Cadogan Ticking 2016 JJ Atkins Boxes

Warwick Farm’s Bjorn Baker has a trio of Group 1 runners set to line-up at Eagle Farm Racecourse on Stradbroke Handicap Day including Cadogan who is ticking plenty of boxes ahead of the JJ Atkins 2016.

In the rescheduled $500,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) Baker hopes the three weeks between runs won’t hamper the chances of his smart filly Imposing Lass.

He also has his last start Doomben 10,000 winner Music Magnate spot on for the day’s feature race, the $1.5 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).

Baker’s third elite level runner on the final Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival race day is two-year-old Cadogan in the $600,000 Group 1 BMW J.J. Atkins (1600m).

The set weights mile showdown has a capacity of 18 starters and nicely-bred Smart Missile colt Cadogan is assured of a start sitting 16th on the latest JJ Atkins order of entry.

After breaking his maiden status at start number three at Randwick over 1400m on May 18, Cadogan was last seen running a luckless ninth in the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) a fortnight ago.

Drawn the outside alley (13 of 13) in the traditional JJ Atkins lead-up, Cadogan was caught deep throughout in the BRC Sires’ and pleased Baker finishing only 2.6 lengths off the winner Attention.

Peter & Paul Snowden’s BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes winning Stratum colt Attention is after a double last achieved by Sizzling (2012) on Saturday and pays $7 in the pre-field JJ Atkins odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Those futures JJ Atkins betting markets are led by Tony Pike’s New Zealand raider Sacred Elixir ($4) who has the VRC Derby in the spring on the radar.

The other best fancied JJ Atkins hopes this season include the John O’Shea-trained Souchez ($5) chasing his first win since the Group 2 Pago Page Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill in March and his lightly-raced stablemate Archives ($8) coming off a win in Doomben’s Listed Hampden Stakes (1200m) at just his second start on May 21.

Cadogan meanwhile is just longer in the markets at $10 for the win and Baker is confident with a clearer run he is a big hope in the mile showdown.

“I thought his run last time was excellent, he was caught deep and wide and it was a toss-up whether we run in the Sires’ Produce or wait a week for the Phoenix,” Baker told Racing Victoria.

“Thankfully we did run there, even though the race wasn’t run to suit, it probably wasn’t mathematically possible for him to finish much closer than he did.

“He worked very well this morning and the thing about him that suits a mile, two-year-old race is that he does relax well and we have got (Hugh) Bowman on, so that has got to be a plus on Saturday.”
