Single Gaze Leads 2017 Tails Stakes Field & Betting

Nick Olive’s Group 1 winning mare Single Gaze is tipped to return to winning form leading the Tails Stakes 2017 field and odds for the Doomben showdown this Saturday in Brisbane.

A field of fourteen milers face off in Doomben Race 7 at 3:47pm (AEST) in this year’s $100,000 Listed Mandate Tails Stakes (1600m).

In an open Tails Stakes betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au six of the hopefuls are under double-figures for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival lead-up including the current $4.80 favourite Single Gaze.

At her peak the daughter of Not A Single Doubt took out last year’s Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill, before she fell in the Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m) next time out.

She has raced three times since the fall, improving on two unplaced Rosehill runs earlier this autumn when finishing just a length away third on March 25 in the Group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes (2000m).

Olive drops the mare back to a mile on Saturday for her third run at the Doomben track, which Single Gaze hasn’t seen since May of 2015.

The distance is a possible issue, but she is up against an easier field of rivals four runs in and looks the class runner to beat in the stakes’ race.

At an equal $6.50 co-occupying the second line of Tails Stakes odds are Too Good To Refuse and early market mover Sheiswhatsheis drawn in barriers six and twelve respectively.

Desleigh Forster’s four-year-old Rothesay stallion Too Good To Refuse is a genuine miler, but hasn’t won a race since Eagle Farm’s Listed Keith Noud (1200m) last November.

He has been competitive in plenty of races since however, most recently running second to brazen Moss on April 1 over the 1615m at Doomben under 56kg as the beaten favourite.

Too Good To Refuse gets the chance to atone this weekend returning to the track and distance, but dropping a kilo to 55kg.

Getting in on the 54kg minimum is Tony Gollan’s in-form Bernardini mare Sheiswhatsheis who has won three of her four runs over the mile to date.

She enjoyed back-to-back Doomben wins over the distance in March before her credible third behind Cylinder Beach in the Toowoomba Cup (2000m) a fortnight ago.

Returning to her preferred track and distance will work in the five-year-old’s favour on the weekend and the money is starting to come in for her to win.

The next best fancied chasing a third win on the trot is the fellow Gollan-trained Brazen Moss ($7.50) who Jim Byrne rides from gate ten.

The Mossman five-year-old won over 1400m at the Gold Coast in March before defeating Too Good To Refuse here at Doomben on April 1.

Gollan’s third Tails Stakes chance on the weekend is Pindan Pearl who has the outside alley to overcome and recent poor form to atone for, explaining the $34 odds on offer.

Carting the hefty 60.5kg top weight meanwhile is the Steven O’Dea-trained Sunshine Coast Cup winner Sir Moments who is still being kept safe in betting at $9.50 to win the race for a second time after success back in 2015.

At the same price in the second widest alley is Jeff Lloyd’s mount Cantbuybetter, the Ben Currie-trained galloper coming off a win at home at Toowoomba on Cup Day under far more weight.
