The 2011 Spring Stakes field has assembled a handy group of three year olds with a cracker of a race sure to ensue at Newcastle this Wednesday.
It’s far from being the largest Spring Stakes ever run however there is enough talent in the field to make it worthy of its Group 3 status.
There’s little doubt the favourite for the race will come from the Peter Snowden yard with Amidexter winning so strongly last time out.
In that run he took care of Darci Be Good who was in outstanding shape before running into him last time out.
There’s also plenty of talk about the Gai Waterhouse entry Just The Tonic which at the moment is unbeaten from two runs.
Sure this may be a step up in grade but with two convincing performances on the board this campaign who’s to say he can’t take that next step.
Others well worth a mention in the 2011 Spring Stakes field include Rekindled Alliance for Paul Messara as well as the consistent if not brilliant Boys On Tour for John Thompson.
Remember that odds for the race will be open at Luxbet tomorrow meaning you can get in early and grab the best possible fixed price quotes before the big money starts to flow in.
That means you’ll be getting bigger payouts and guaranteeing your return rather than relying on often hard to judge tote prices.
