Mr. SNEAKY to chase GROUP 1 GLORY for DREAM THOROUGHBREDS
Posted: 29th Sep 2017
Mr. Sneaky has drawn perfectly in barrier 5 as he tackles the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes at Caulfield this Sunday.
We expect the son of High Chaparral to be ridden off the pace midfield, allowed to settle, on what looks to be a very strong pace. This will suit him much better than last start and much like the conditions he faced in his first up win.
The likely leader will be Charmed Harmony is he runs, (he maybe unlikely to run on a good track) and our old mate TheAnswerMyFriend. Grande Rosso and Scales ofJustice also can race forward on the pace, so it is likely to be a good genuine pace.
We will want to hold our position from the barrier and sit midfield. We would expect him to blend in late off a strong speed.
Brenton has not ridden him before, but he is a Group 1 jockey, and he doesn't lack for experience in these big races.
He has come up as $7.50 on the fixed odds market on TAB, and expect him to be good each way odds on the day. We think he can be very competitive, but certainly it will be a very hard race to win with 3 previous Group 1 winners in the race.
Group 1 races are very hard to win, and it's just exciting to be involved with a runner, and I have no doubt Mr Sneaky will give us 100% effort again for his loyal bunch of owners!
