2017 AD Hollindale Stakes Betting: It’s Somewhat Favourite

Last start Doncaster Mile champion It’s Somewhat is the firming favourite in AD Hollindale Stakes 2017 betting to continue his winning streak this weekend at the Gold Coast Racecourse.

The John O’Shea-trained son of Dynaformer is one of 11 remaining hopefuls facing off in Saturday’s $358,000 Group 2 A.D. Hollindale Stakes (1800m) after the early scratching of the Les Kelly-trained Shoreham (10).

Drawn in barrier three with Tye Angland coming aboard for the ride, It’s Somewhat has been well supported firming in from $3.70 to $3.50 in the latest AD Hollindale Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

The Sydney galloper has won his past two on the trot, including the Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) under the weight-for-age conditions he returns to this weekend after carting 55kg to victory last time out in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m).

A subsequent Warwick Farm winning hit-out has the gelding in full fitness and ready to run a big race on Saturday as he tracks towards a Brisbane start on May 20 in the $650,000 Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m).

It is an open top half of the AD Hollindale Stakes markets this winter with a further five single-figure fancies including the Chris Waller-trained McCreery ($5) in barrier five.

A first-up winner of the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m) back in late February, Waller’s Big Bad Bob five-year-old has been running consistently in elite level company all autumn.

He ran sixth to It’s Somewhat two back in the Doncaster Mile from a wide alley before crossing under two lengths back four fourth to Tivaci on April 15 in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m).

Set to appreciate the step back in grade, McCreery has winning form up to 2000m so should see out the 1800m at the Gold Coast no worries and will get every chance from the alley with Jeff Lloyd in the saddle.

The next best in betting are in-form mare Single Gaze ($5.50) and the consistent Sense Of Occasion ($6.50).

Nick Olive’s four-year-old daughter of Not A Single Doubt Single Gaze comes off a Doomben win in the Listed Tails Quality (1600m) on April 22 carrying 58kg to victory.

She comes back to 57kg in the Hollindale Stakes and is a dual placegetter at the Gold Coast track including most recently her second in the 2016 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas.

Newcastle’s Kris Lees saddles-up Street Sense six-year-old Sense Of Occasion, who is another horse set to enjoy coming back in grade off some impressive Group 1 runs in Sydney.

After his third in the Doncaster, the gelding was last seen finishing in the money behind the world’s best Winx as a $101 roughie in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) and will be suited to the 1800m third-up.

Rounding out the hopes under $10 for the win in the traditional Doomben Cup lead-up are the Brisbane-trained Cylinder Beach ($8.50) who has won three of his past four starts including the Toowoomba Cup on April 8 and Waller’s rails-drawn Zabeel stallion Preferment ($9.50) who hasn’t posted a win since the 2016 The BMW.
