2011 CF Orr Stakes Field to Feature Veterans Danzylum & Zipping

Danzylum earned a shot at the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes after winning the Listed John Dillon Stakes

Two veterans of the Australia racing scene are set to contest the 2011 C.F. Orr Stakes with nine-year-old Zipping and seven-year-old Danzylum both heading towards the Group 1 showdown at Caulfield on Saturday February 12.

On Australia Day, Wednesday January 26, Robbie Griffith’s Danzero gelding Danzylum earned a shot at the $400,000 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) scoring an impressive 1 ¾ length win in the Listed John Dillon Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield.

Before their Australia Day success, Danzylum also won their second successive Chester Manifold Stakes at Flemington and will now head towards the CF Orr.

Last year Danzylum finished a close second in the John Dillon Stakes behind Joku before running a sincere fourth to superstar Typhoon Tracy in the 2010 CF Orr Stakes.

Since then the evergreen galloper has continued to show their preference to Caulfield and the 1400m distance making them a genuine chance in this year’s CF Orr Stakes showdown.

Zipping is expected to resume in the CF Orr Stakes

Meanwhile the ever-persistent and impressive Danehill gelding Zipping is expected to resume in the CF Orr Stakes following a sensational spring for the nine-year-old.

Zipping has been rested since November 13 when he ran and won his fourth successive Sandown Classic (2400m).

His other spring successes including another fourth in the Melbourne Cup (3200m), second place finish behind So You Think in the Cox Plate (2040m) and Group 1 victory in the Turnbull Stakes (2000m)

The main aim for the Lloyd Williams-owned weight-for-age champ is the $1 million Australian Cup (2000m), where Zipping will seek back-to-back wins having stormed home in the race last autumn.

Currently Zipping is the $6 favourite in the early 2011 Australian Cup odds at Luxbet followed closely by equal $6.50 second elects Shocking and Whobegotyou.

Last year’s CF Orr Stakes winner, the Peter Moody-trained Typhoon Tracy will also be back to defend her title this year, the five-time Group 1 winner resuming this Friday night in the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley.

Currently Typhoon Tracy is the red hot favourite in the Australia Stakes odds paying $2.25 at Luxbet, having shortened in from her opening quote of $2.40 earlier today.

Another of Moody’s Group 1 winners, Reward For Effort, is also set to resume racing shortly with the Exceed And Excel four-year-old tipped for a strong campaign.

The 2009 Blue Diamond Stakes champion charged home to win an 800m barrier trial at Cranbourne on January 24 by a half-length and will start first-up in the $100,000 Listed JRA Stakes (1000m) at Caulfield on February 5.
