Eagle Farm Race 9 Victory Stakes Group 2 1200m Originally known as the Sir Byrne Hart Stakes and run over varying distances, this race has found a niche at the beginning of the Brisbane winter carnival as a Group 2 WFA sprint in recent years. Buffering won twice, as did Swiss Ace, Rough Habit won in 1991 and Kingston Town’s little brother Private Thoughts was victorious in 1981. Impending won in 2018. Without stating the bleedin obvious, Redzel at his best is a class above his opposition in this race. However, his form has tapered off this Autumn and there are definitely question marks whether he is capable of winning at this level going on his recent form. Doubtful the Snowdens would bring him to Brisbane unless they thought he was ready to fire, and McEvoy would have had a full book of rides at Hawkesbury had he wanted to go there, and he has chosen to stick with his Everest Champ. Always had a huge opinion of WInter Bride, she is very good and her last run behind Sweet Moss at Randwick was outstanding coming from well back to run third. She beat Spright on merit first up there and if Redzel was not running, she would look a good thing in this race. I’m A Rippa is just that and should set the pace first up since a successful summer campaign winning two from three. Fitted for this with a solid barrier trial, he may just find the 1200m against this opposition a bridge too far first up, nevertheless, a multiples chance. Stella Victory won that Deagon trial and did win three races in easier grade last preparation, she might be ready to fir first up. Fiery Heights has been well held in Sydney at his past couple, won’t find this any easier. Havasay looks completely out of form and would need to improve. Jonker an intriguing runner. Always thought he had a good race in him and his last effort behind Classique Legend was very good and that form should stand up here. He has only won twice from nine attempts and can do a few things wrong, however if he does everything right, he can figure in the finish. Blake Shinn appears to ride I Am Excited who it must be said was a tad disappointing during the Sydney Autumn. On her run in the Sapphire Stakes, she cannot beat Winter Bride, however she was okay in The Galaxy and had placed in the Triscay prior. Maybe a place hope. 1 #1 Redzel 2 #6 Winter Bride 3 #7 Jonker 4 #2 I’m A Rippa
