A.D. Hollindale Stakes 2018 Betting update: Comin’ Through the solid pick

The Chris Waller trained Comin’ Through remains the firm favourite for the 2018 Group 2 $358,000 Attwood Marshall A.D. Hollindale Stakes (1800m) at the Gold Coast on Saturday.

Comin’ Through is one of five Waller runners to line up in the weight for age feature and sits at the top of the betting at $2.90 with Ladbrokes.com.au.

The Fastnet Rock four year old is coming off a four run Sydney Autumn Carnival campaign that produced a win in the Group 2 $200,000 Hyland Race Colours Ajax Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill, a second to Happy Clapper in the Group 1 $3m The Star Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick and a fifth to his glamour stablemate Winx in the Group 1 $4m Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick.

Robbie Fradd takes over from Michael Walker on Comin’ Through who will jump from barrier four following the early scratching of Payroll who had drawn in close at two.

Waller has given Comin’ Through three weeks to get over his Queen Elizabeth Stakes run and prepare for his Winter Carnival assignment in the Hollindale Stakes.

“Comin’ Through was very good in the Doncaster where he raced three wide and he backed it up with a good run seven days later behind arguably the four best weight-for-age horses in the country in Gailo Chop, Happy Clapper, Humidor and Winx,” Waller told The Courier-Mail.

“There’s no better form.”

“I think three weeks between runs, coming back to 1800m is just the perfect race for him.”

Waller is not dismissing the chances of Tom Melbourne who is also well in contention in the betting at $5 with Corey Brown in the saddle from barrier 3.

Tom Melbourne had a tough run in the Doncaster Mile for a fifth placing and then ran eighth to Trapeze Artist in the Group 1 $600,000 Schweppes All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on April 21.

“Tom Melbourne was very unlucky from his wide gate in the Doncaster and he got run off his feet in track record time in the All Aged Stakes,” Waller said.

“I wouldn’t be too concerned about that. I look back to his Doncaster form and 1800m from a soft draw with Corey Brown aboard he will be a close second.”

Last year’s winner It’s Somewhat is marked as a $4.60 chance to win back to back Hollindale Stakes and the James Cummings trained seven year old is going into the race second up following his first up sixth in the All Aged Stakes.

The Mick Price trained Oregon’s Day at $8.50 and Waller’s third runner Egg Tart at $9 are the only other runners under the $10 mark while Waller’s Japanese import Satono Rasen has been keep safe at $14 and stablemate One Foot In Heaven is the roughest of the stable’s runners at $20.
