Chocolate Holic Tops 2016 Carbine Club of W.A. Stakes Odds

Grant & Alana Williams’ Northam Cup winner Chocolate Holic is clear favourite in Carbine Club of W.A. Stakes 2016 to take out the Listed showdown on Railway Stakes Day this weekend in Perth.

A final field of 12 gallopers aged four-years-old or above take to the Ascot track in Race 6 at 3:35pm (local) this Saturday in the $100,000 Carbine Club of W.A. Stakes (1400m) as part of the Railway Stakes Day program.

Drawn just worse than midfield in barrier eight with former local hoop, the now Victorian-based Damien Oliver booked for the ride is Chocolate Holic.

Team Williams’ smart Blackfriars four-year-old currently sits top of the Carbine Club of WA Stakes odds at paying $3.20 for the win.

Two back the gelding won the Listed Northam Cup (1600m) over the mile before his sixth in last Saturday’s Listed Ascot Gold Cup (1800m) carrying 58kg.

He drops to 57.5kg at set weights plus penalties this weekend and also drops back sharply in distance, Chocolate Holic boasting a smart record of three wins and a second from his four previous runs over 1400m.

In an open top half of the markets a further five runners are also at single-figures including three equal $6.50 second favourites: Great Shot, Universal Law and Special Delivery.

Drawn a treat in barrier two, the Rhys Radford-trained Magnus four-year-old Great Shot is out to improve on his fifth to 2016 Railway Stakes hope Scales Of Justice at the track in last weekend’s Group 3 RJ Peters Stakes (1500m).

Before that the consistent galloper ran second to Heart Starter in the Group 3 Asian Beau Stakes (1400m).

This weekend he chases his first win since the Listed Belmont Guineas (1600m) over the mile during the winter and his sixth win from 12 career starts overall.

Universal Law is drawn wide with the outside alley (12) for ace Hong Kong hoop Douglas Whyte to overcome on the Team Williams’ runner.

A four-year-old son of Beneteau, the horse comes off a string of minor placings in easier company this campaign.

Third in the Belmont Guineas on June 25, his latest run was a brave second over the Ascot mile in a Benchmark 72+ last Saturday carrying 58kg.

Special Delivery meanwhile has William Pike in the saddle again after his first-up second at York over 1500m on November 6.

The Testa Rossa five-year-old has won just one of his eight starts at Ascot, but has stellar form over the distance (4-3-0-1) and should be improved off his resuming run.

Rounding out the hopes under $10 are distance specialist Coming Back ($8) and the Jason Pateman-trained mare Showy Chloe ($8.50) who is the last of three emergencies and unlikely to gain a run in Saturday’s $1 million Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m).
