Sydney’s flying mare Super Too has been the big market mover in the pre-post betting for the Listed $120,000 SAJ Fruit Supply Carlyon Stakes (1000m) at The Valley on Saturday.
Since the final field for the Carlyon Stakes was released on Wednesday, Super Too has firmed in from $8.50 to $5 with Ladbrokes.com.au and is now on the third line of betting behind Hey Doc at $3.90 and Faatinah at $4.80.
The Tony McEvoy trained Group 1 winner Hey Doc remains a solid favourite, firming from $4.20 while Lindsay Park’s Faatinah has been hovering around the $6 – $6.50 mark.
Super Too has drawn the outside barrier in the thirteen horse Carlyon Stakes field but trained Marc Conners can see the Hinchinbrook mare exploding out of the gates with Damien Oliver aboard and crossing the field to set up her catch me if you can tactics.
“She’s going to fire off from the outside gate and get across, that’s what she does,” Conners said.
“She runs along and we’ll see if they can catch her.”
Super Too will be stepping out for the first time since finishing third to Sunday Escape in the $100,000 Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge Heat 16 (955m) at The Valley on March 23 and has had two recent 800m Warwick Farm barrier trials in preparation for her return to the race track.
The five year old mare ran second to the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained The Everest contender Invincible Star and then beat her rivals by ten lengths on August 10 and Conners is expecting a very forward showing in the Carlyon Stakes.
“I’ve been really happy with her trials,” Conners said.
“She had a pretty solid hit-out in the first one and in the second she was able to just lob around at her own speed and she had a fair bit up her sleeve.”
“The field has come up probably how we expected and I think it’s a race that she’s definitely up for.”
“We thought we’d get in before the big boys get going.”
