WJ Healy Stakes 2016 Betting Tips & Update

One of three Group races on the Tattersall’s Tiara Day program in Brisbane this weekend is the 2016 WJ Healy Stakes, betting tips for the sprint found below.

That's A Good Idea

Running as Eagle Farm Race 9 at 3:57pm (AEST) on the extended 10-race card, this year’s $175,000 Group 3 W.J. Healy Stakes (1200m) originally drew a final field of 13.

The line-up is down to a dozen after the early scratching of Robert Smerdon’s last start Sandown winner Odyssey Moon (13) who was drawn the outside alley.

Sitting top of the updated WJ Heal Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au is the rails-drawn Mogador ($3.80) for Godolphin and John O’Shea.

An in-form Lonhro colt, the smart three-year-old comes off a second at Doomben from late May in the Listed Queensland Day Stakes (1200m) and is also Group 1 performed having crossed fifth to Japonisme at Flemington in the Coolmore Stud Stakes in the spring.

Hot on his heels in WJ Healy Stakes betting at $3.90 is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained top weight That’s A Good Idea carrying 59.5kg from barrier two with Hugh Bowman aboard.

The Flying Spur six-year-old ran third when unsuccessfully defending his Listed Ortensia Stakes (1100m) title at Scone on May 14 before a last start victory over 1100m at Randwick a fortnight later.

He carted a hefty 62kg to victory in that non-Black Type, so is more than capable of saluting in tougher class with 59.5kg this weekend.

The other best in betting are the Kelso Wood-trained multiple stakes winner Into The Red ($6.50) and Tony Gollan’s smart four-year-old mare Tina Melina ($6.50), but can they score an upset WJ Healy Stakes result this Queensland Winter Racing Carnival?


#1 That’s A Good Idea ($3.90)

That’s A Good Idea may be giving the weight away to his rivals, but he’s the class sprinter in this field and can come good under the kilos. He had more weight on his back winning at Randwick last time out and has a top 1200m record (16-4-2-2). Gets the run of the race from barrier two with Bowman aboard and this is a pretty easy field of rivals so his previous stakes’ winning form can hold.


#3 Saluter ($11)

Nice price offered for the local hope Saluter prepared by Robert Heathcote and coming off a 1000m Sunshine Coast win from mid-May. The six-year-old carted 60kg to victory that day and drops five kilos to 55kg for this run. Brad Stewart is aboard, the son of Commands runs well fresh and has plenty of experience at Eagle Farm (12-2-4-2).


#11 Mogador ($3.80)

Mogador is the current favourite and is firming with barrier one and the 54kg minimum. Has raced against some of the best of his age and stacked-up okay, but needs to handle the older horses here. That said he’s got a bit of class and the weight relief after carting 57kg to a devastatingly close second over this distance at Doomben last time out.
