Autumn Watch: Runners from 24th and 26th of March

After a bumper Golden Slipper card and a Monday morning of sizzling trails at Randwick there are two runners who look bomb-proof moving forward in their respective campaigns.

As the Autumn carnival draws closer, Saturday racing is heating up. We will look to give you an early edge by identifying key runners for the upcoming big races and suggest plays in early markets where available.


Gailo Chop – Rosehill Race 4: 1st ($2.05F): The Melbourne raider came down to Sydney as a clear-cut favourite boasting some top-line form. The French import kicked off his campaign with two painless 1.25L wins at Group 2 and 3 level before being narrowly beaten as a $2.60 favourite in the G1 Australian Cup. A quality type in the yard, he looked head and shoulder above his rivals and took the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes out by a whopping 3L on the line.


Given the rich form of the gelding, OTI and the Weir stable have openly stated they are keen to back the gelding up in this weekend’s Tancred Stakes (formally BMW Stakes). He would tackle the 2400m for the first time in that event but looks ideally set-up to do so fourth-up after attacking the line strongly over the 2000m. If there is rain it’ll only be a bonus given his 9:7-1-0 record with the sting out.


Record: 27:13-3-3


Targets: Tancred Stakes: 31/03: $2.50, Queen Elizabeth: 14/04: $12.


Redzel – Randwick Trial 1:1st: Racing fans were treated this morning as Australia’s premier sprinter stepped out to trial. The gelding scorched the turf running the 1000m in 58.03s with a final 600m of 33.50s romping in the heat by 3L without being asked to let down. He looks well-poised to take out Sydney’s premier sprint race in the TJ Smith stakes.


Some have speculated he was travelling better last preparation which saw him put together 4 wins on the trot including the Everest and the G1 Darley Classic. However, it’s taken a straight racing freak and subsequent G1 winner in Redkirk Warrior to dismantle his winning streak and last start in the Challenge, Super Too’s incredible early/mid-race speed didn’t give him the chance to open up on the field. 


Record: 23:12-5-1


Targets: TJ Smith Stakes: 07/04: $2.50


Suggested Plays:

Both runners are well-found in their respective markets. Gailo Chop is as short as $2 with some corporates at the time of writing, giving good indication of the Weir camp’s intention to back him up this weekend.


Suggesting a good bet on the multi; Gailo Chop ($2.50) in the Tancred Stakes into Redzel ($2.50) in the TJ Smith at odds of $6.25. It looks an obvious play, but these are good odds about two gallopers that are hard to fault.
