Wakeel Ready for Class Rise in Zeditave Stakes 2013

Sam Kavanagh’s recent stable addition Wakeel will be stepped up in class this Saturday when they take on just four rivals in the 2013 Zeditave Stakes at Caulfield’s Australia Day meeting.

Morphettville-based Kavanagh is the third trainer to prepare the three-year-old Shamardal colt in their six start career so far and is hoping to unlock a black type victory or two from them this time in.

A bargain $10,000 buy from last year’s William Inglis Great Southern Bloodstock Sale, Wakeel began their career with David Hayes in Melbourne having had three disappointing runs initially.

They were sent to Stephen Theodore for starts number four and five, both of which they were successful in winning over 1100m at Ballarat in September beating General Amour by four lengths and then Al Maisan by a long neck respectively.

Another trainer and stable change was to follow however with the youngster sent to Kavanagh at the end of last year, Wakeel debuting for them at Morphettville Parks on January 12 finishing four lengths away fifth to the Fred Meuring-trained Spoilsport.

Nominated for a trio of races this weekend across three states, Wakeel has now been confirmed as a Zeditave Stakes starter on Saturday after the race drew just four other runners, Kavanagh keen to see how they will handle the challenge.

“It’s a massive class rise but with only eight in the race (at nomination stage) we thought we’d roll the dice,” Kavanagh said.
