2016 Gimcrack Stakes Field & Betting Odds: Jorda Favourite

A field of unraced two-year-old fillies will take to the track for the first time on Saturday in the Gimcrack Stakes 2016 at Royal Randwick with Jorda favourite to break her maiden status on debut.

Kicking off the Epsom Handicap Day card as Randwick Race 1 at 12:20pm (AEST), this season’s $150,000 Listed Keenland Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) has attracted nine hopeful debutants.

Drawn in barrier four with ace Sydney hoop James McDonald booked for the ride is the John O’Shea-trained daughter of Exceed And Excel Jorda.

She leads the post-field Gimcrack Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $2.45 for the win after a smart two length Randwick trial win over 850m on September 19.

The close second favourite in the latest Gimcrack Stakes betting markets is the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Chain Of Fools ($3.80) drawn the outside alley (9 of 9).

Adam Hyeronimus rode the More Than Ready filly for a runaway 7.3 length trial victory at the track over 850m last week and retains the ride for her first start under race conditions on Saturday.

Waterhouse & Bott have also accepted for Mystic Empire ($17) drawn one on the inside of her better fancied stablemate in gate eight with Tim Clark riding the All Too Hard filly.

Mystic Empire also trialled at Randwick on September 19 over 850m on a Soft (7) course and finished an eye-catching third when under a length off Tiki Bar with Tommy Berry aboard.

Berry’s mount in the Gimcrack Stakes field on Saturday is the Michael Freedman-trained local daughter of Snitzel Grasslands.

He also rode her for a third in an 850m trial at the track on September 19 when 2.6 lengths off Greater Good, Grasslands at a current quote of $11 to win first-up.

The winner of that hit-out, the John Thompson-trained Fastnet Rock filly Greater Good, is another Gimcrack Stakes acceptor out to prove her potential on debut.

She was smart in the winning trial with Blake Shinn in the saddle and is a top fancy at $6.50 on Saturday to bring that form to race day with Shinn retaining the ride.

The other best fancied the bookies have rated as a genuine winning hope include the Gerald Ryan-trained Didn’t Mention It ($10) who has trialled twice including a Rosehill win on Monday and Chris Waller’s rails-drawn Madame Moustache ($13) who will need to work to stay out of trouble from the inside alley at Randwick on the back of a winning Warwick Farm trial from September 23.
