2016 Breeders’ Plate Field, Barriers & Betting Odds

The second Black-Type on the Epsom Handicap Day card in Sydney on Saturday sees a field of unraced two-year-old colts and geldings take to the Royal Randwick track for the Breeders’ Plate 2016.

Due to run as Randwick Race 2 at 12:55pm (AEST), this year’s $150,000 Listed Newgate Breeders’ Plate (1000m) originally attracted a final field of 14 young hopefuls.

Thirteen are left in the mix for the set weights sprint after the early scratching of the John O’Shea-trained Inquiry (13) who drew wide.

O’Shea and the Godolphin stable are still represented in the Breeders’ Plate field by Piracy, also drawn double-digits in barrier 12 with top Sydney jockey James McDonald booked for the ride first-up.

Exceed And Excel colt Piracy comes off an 850m Randwick trial win from September 19 with McDonald in the saddle, when one of just three official trial winners to break a time of 51 seconds over the distance, and currently pays $4.20 in the Breeders’ Plate odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

The only runner shorter than him in the current Breeders’ Plate betting markets at $2.45 is the Gerald Ryan-trained Not A Single Doubt colt Condor Heroes.

He too enjoyed a winning hit-out leading to his first run under race conditions, blitzing the line-up of fellow two-year-olds by over nine lengths at the Randwick track in the morning’s quickest time.

Condor Heroes is out to bring that blistering trial form to his debut and Tim Clark retains the ride on the $190,000 Magic Millions Yearling.

Just two other up-and-comers are under $10 for the Breeders’ Plate win this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival with the rails-drawn Khan ($7) and The Mission ($8.50) also drawn nicely in barrier four.

Blake Shinn is booked to ride the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained son of Exceed And Excel Khan, a $260,000 Magic Millions Yearling buy, who won his 850m Randwick lead-up trial by a narrow margin.

In the hit-out Shinn had him settled back off the speed before he accelerated nicely late to take the win, the inside alley a big advantage for his debut on Saturday.

Team Snowden have a total of three starters in the Breeders’ Plate this season with Khan joined by stablemates Invader ($13) and roughie hope Opulentus ($71) drawn in barriers nine and eight respectively.

The Mission meanwhile is prepared by Newcastle’s Paul Perry and has globetrotting hoop Craig Williams in the saddle on debut after a second to fellow Breeders’ Plate rival Piracy in his official hit-out.

A bargain buy for $32,000 at the Magic Millions Yearling sales, Choisir colt The Mission is drawn a treat in barrier four and with the top hoop aboard gets the chance to atone for the trial loss where he copped a check leading into the turn costing him the win.
