The field for this autumn’s Group 2 $200,000 Expressway Stakes (1200m) is down to just seven runners after the early withdrawal of the Bjorn Baker-trained Goodfella (7).

Updated Expressway Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au have dual Group 1 winning Star Witness mare Global Glamour at $2.80 and firming to return to winning form.

The four-year-old hasn’t saluted since the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) last October and comes off a lead-up sixth at the Gold Coast on January 13 in the $1 million Magic Millions Fillies & Mares (1300m) when allocated a hefty 60.5kg.

The team have made a number of notable gear changes hoping to recapture the former top form of this $1.39 million earner and that could prove the difference.

The other best in Expressway Stakes betting are Baker’s remaining runner, returning Savabeel colt Addictive Nature ($3.20) to be ridden by Jason Collett first-up, and the Gerald Ryan-trained Golden Rose winner Trapeze Artist ($3.90) who recently won a trial ahead of the likes of Winx and Redzel.

So will the best in betting salute or is there an upset Expressway Stakes result pending from the likes of Jason Coyle’s last start Summer Sprint winning mare Memes ($7) or even VRC Derby champ Ace High ($18) who will likely find the 1200m too short?

1st

#8 Addictive Nature ($3.20)

Fancy the returning three-year-old here who is lightly-raced, untapped and boasting all the upside. He is a dual winner from four career starts including the Group 3 Ming Dynasty here at Rosehill last August. Third at the track last time out in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes and should find the 1200m suitable first-up. Goes well fresh and has been impressive in his two lead-up trial wins, the latest by 2.5 lengths at Rosehill (900m) on January 22 with Collett in the saddle. Ticks a lot of boxes at WFA in a small field.

2nd

#5 Trapeze Artist ($3.90)

Flew home for the emphatic, all-the-way Golden Rose upset last time in before the Flemington straight got the better of him in the Coolmore Stud Stakes. Tipping the resuming three-year-olds in this year’s Expressway and think this son of Snitzel, an impressive hit-out winner in the star-studded heat here last month, can finish right up there.

3rd

#3 Memes ($7)

This four-year-old daughter of Time Thief might just be the Expressway pace-setter on Saturday and if she’s good enough, can hold for placing. Consistent winning strike rate in easier company and should be ready for 1200m (7:1-3-1) after a lead-up win over 1000m at Randwick from January 20.
