Japonisme Leads 2016 Concorde Stakes Betting

The Chris Waller-trained Japonisme has opened favourite in Concorde Stakes 2016 betting to kick off his four-year-old campaign with a Group win at Randwick Racecourse on the weekend.

Closing a nine-race card in Sydney for Chelmsford Stakes Day, this year’s $125,000 Group 3 James Boag’s Premium Concorde Stakes (1000m) jumps at 5:10pm (AEST) on Saturday.

The field is made up of a dozen sprinters with the field, weights and Concorde Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au led by Japonisme.

The now four-year-old Choisir gelding carries 60kg at set weights plus penalties with Hugh Bowman booked for the ride from gate eight first-up.

Winner of the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington last Derby Day, Japonisme’s sole win since was in the Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Stakes (1200m) at Randwick in April.

His last start produced a close third in the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) at Doomben in mid-May and he comes off two subsequent Randwick trials.

Despite giving the weight away to his rivals, Japonisme is being kept safe at $3.20 for the win after those promising hit-outs and his good effort first-up at Flemington last time in when a neck away third in the Group 1 Lighting Stakes (1000m) over this distance.

Four other runners are under $10 in the Concorde Stakes betting markets for the win including Kinglike ($5.50), a fellow first-up four-year-old who has a wide gate 10 draw to overcome.

Kerrin McEvoy is back on the Gerald Ryan-trained Exceed And Excel stallion after partnering him for a fourth to Japonisme in the Arrowfield at the track during ‘The Championships’.

Kinglike’s resuming run in the autumn saw him chase home English for a close second in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes at the same track and distance as the Concorde this weekend and he only needs the luck from the alley to feature in the money again.

The equal $6.50 third favourites are Federal and Hidden Pearl drawn at opposite ends of the field with barriers 12 and two respectively.

Star Sydney hoop James McDonald rides Federal for Godolphin, the John O’Shea-trained Medaglia D’Oro five-year-old last seen running second in the Group 2 QTC Cup (1300m) at Eagle Farm on Stradbroke Day.

His winning form first-up is strong with two wins and a third from four efforts, and he is a winner of two of his three Randwick runs so far.

Hidden Pearl is drawn to get the run of the race with apprentice Bridget Grylls riding the in-form Barry Lockwood-trained mare.

The six-year-old daughter of Hidden Dragon has won her two latest starts over the 1000m at home at Eagle Farm, giving her an outstanding record over the distance (9-6-1-0) ahead of her Randwick debut.

Rounding out the single-figure hopes for the Concorde this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival is the market mover Boss Lane ($9.50 into $8) who lines-up at the track for the 19th time.

Ron Quinton’s local Dubawi six-year-old has won here five times and has an excellent Randwick record over 1000m (3-2-0-1).

His first-up run produced a fifth when 2.6 lengths off the winner in the Group 3 Show County Quality (1200m) a fortnight back, which he could improve on second-up dropping back in metres.
