2012 William Reid Stakes Form Guide & Preview

The latest race of the Melbourne Autumn Carnival will run under the lights at Moonee Valley this Friday night, the Races.com.au team’s exclusive William Reid Stakes 2012 form guide and betting preview found below.

Woorim

Woorim is one of four horses in the 2012 William Reid Stakes to have won over the track and distance before

Won 12 months ago by the best sprinter in the business Black Caviar, the $400,000 Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) is this year dominated by another, Black Caviar’s perennial whipping boy Hay List.

Odds-on favourite paying $1.35 in the William Reid Stakes odds at bookmaker.com.au, Hay List will certainly relish meeting a similar field to that he defeated in the Newmarket Handicap last start, this time at weight-for-age.

There has only been one small setback with the news John McNair’s stable ace has some minor bruising, but other than that Hay List looks fit and ready to score thoroughbred major number four.

While Hay List is the definite horse to beat he must still defeat seven quality rivals on Friday evening in order to salute for the punters.

So can he do it? Or will there be an upset William Reid Stakes result by one of the others such as Newmarket runner-up Buffering or resuming Cox Plate third placegetter Rekindled Interest?

The crew of form analysts at Races.com.au have gone over the 2012 William Reid Stakes field, form and betting history to come up with the need to know facts on the Friday night feature.
