Stratum Star Leads 2016 Glasshouse Handicap Odds

Despite being allocated the hefty 61kg top weight for Saturday’s Glasshouse Handicap 2016 the Darren Weir-trained Group 1 winner Stratum Star is favourite for the Caloundra Black-Type.

Due to run as Sunshine Coast Race 6 at 3:17pm (AEST) on Caloundra Cup Day, this year’s $175,000 Listed HMR Projects Glasshouse Handicap (1400m) features a quality line-up of 12 sprinters.

Heading the field and weights is Weir’s Stratum four-year-old Stratum Star, the stallion best known for his Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) win at Caulfield in September last year.

He has run two subsequent Group 1 placings when third in the 2015 Toorak Handicap and second in this year’s Futurity Stakes.

Stratum Star also ran well in Brisbane last time out on June 11 in the Group 2 QTC Cup (1300m) when beaten under half a length for third carrying 59kg.

He goes up two kilos for the weekend and runs over more distance, but he’ll eat up the metres and has the class to overcome the kilos according to the bookies as he sits top of Glasshouse Handicap betting at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $3.90.

The next best fancied in the Glasshouse Handicap odds this Queensland Winter Racing Carnival at a current quote of $5.50 is the Robert Heathcote-trained Saluter in barrier three.

Brad Stewart rides the in-form Commands six-year-old who won at the track over less distance two back in mid-May before a close second at Eagle Farm last Saturday.

Saluter was just nosed out of the Group 3 W.J. Healy Stakes (1200m) win by Into The Red and is on the quick back-up into the Glasshouse Handicap where he drops from 55kg to 54.5kg.

Occupying the third line of betting at $6 is the rails-drawn Sacred Star who is allocated 59kg, a big rise in weights for Tony Pike’s multiple Group 1 winning New Zealand raider.

The Flying Spur six-year-old had just 54.5kg as a $61 roughie in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) last time out, but did enough to impress his trainer with the fifth place effort in his third run in Queensland’s richest race.

Also high up the markets in an open edition of the Glasshouse are Ninth Legion ($7) who is set to be scratched from the line-up in favour of a run at home in Sydney’s Listed Civic Stakes (1350m) at Rosehill and Flamboyer ($7.50).

Early money is coming for Kelly Doughty’s Gold Coast-trained Clang five-year-old Flamboyer who comes off a big 2.8 length win over the distance at Eagle Farm last Saturday.

He drops from 58kg to the 54kg minimum on the weekend and has Jeff Lloyd coming aboard for his shot at back-to-back victories.
