Tannhauser Tops 2023 JJ Atkins Field & Betting Markets

The Ladbrokes JJ Atkins 2023 is the key support act on Stradbroke Handicap Day in Brisbane this weekend and the Chris Waller-trained Tannhauser is tipped as the two-year-old to beat in the Eagle Farm feature.

Punters are treated to a double-shot of elite level racing on the biggest day of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival on Saturday including the juveniles doing battle in the Group 1 $1 million Ladbrokes J.J. Atkins (1600m).

Seventeen final acceptances were taken for the mile showdown this season and early JJ Atkins betting at race sponsor Ladbrokes.com.au is led by Waller’s progressive Dundeel colt Tannhauser.

Jockey James McDonald has the ride on the young favourite from a favourable barrier six draw as Tannhauser chases a second win on the trot after breaking his maiden status in Sydney last time out.

The up-and-comer was a narrow and upset winner over 1400m at Randwick on May 27, and he is tipped to improve on that heading to the sunshine state for a rise in class on the weekend.

Waller chases his fourth JJ Atkins success having prepared three previous winners with Pressday (2010), Press Statement (2015) and most recently The Autumn Sun (2018).

Along with the current $4.20 favourite Tannhauser Waller has also accepted for Chrysaor ($13) and the undefeated Congregation ($8) drawn at opposite ends of the JJ Atkins field in barriers 15 and five respectively.

Better Than Ready colt Chrysaor was last seen running a close third at the track only 1.22 lengths beaten in the Group 2 BRC Sires’ (1400m) but has work to do from the wide alley.

Stablemate Congregation is better fancied by the bookies at single figures to make it three wins from as many career starts with Kerrin McEvoy aboard the Snitzel colt who makes his Brisbane debut in the Group 1.

Two other youngsters are currently under double figures in the JJ Atkins betting markets with the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Maurice filly Azula and Make A Call at an equal $7.

Azula chases her third win on the bounce and was last seen saluting in the Listed Phoenix Stakes (1500m) at the track for a narrow victory from out wide on June 3.

She is on the quick back-up here returning to Eagle Farm with the confidence of that stakes win and Tim Clark aboard.

Waterhouse & Bott combined to win the event two years ago with Converge, while Waterhouse also prepared back-to-back JJ Atkins winners with Romantic Touch (2013) and Almalad (2014) as a solo trainer.

Peter Snowden chases a third JJ Atkins win and second in as many years in partnership with his son Paul after their 2022 victory with Sheeza Belter.

The stable saddles-up well-tried Extreme Choice colt Make A Call and Snapback ($10) from barriers 13 and 10 respectively.

Make A Call is Group 1 performed having run fifth to Militarize in the Champagne Stakes over the Randwick mile back in mid-April and is out to atone for his sixth in Brisbane’s Sires’ here a fortnight back.

Snitzel colt Snapback has been super consistent with two second and two thirds from his four starts to date and chases his maiden win on the back of a close second in the Sires’.

Other notable hopes in the mix include Paul Messara’s lightly-raced Dundeel filly Miracle Of Love ($12) coming off a 1350m Doomben win from May 31 and New Zealand raider Solidify ($15).
