2017 RN IRWIN STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Not a lot of speed for an open sprint so it may be up to I Am Gypsy and Petits Filous to show the way.

ILLUSTRIOUS LAD is a high class sprinter who has been racing in G1 races in Melbourne this campaign. Beaten less than 1L in the Lightning Stakes first up and was a G2 winner last spring so looks well suited back to this grade having won two from thee runs at this course.

VIDDORA is finding it hard to win of late with seconds at her past three but she is a capable mare who can improve second up and goes well at the course and the distance.

SOOBOOG didn't fire when resuming but usually improves second up so look for a better showing while CASINO WIZARD was close up last time after winning a Listed race when resuming.

R6 MORPHETTVILLE 22 April 2017
R N Irwin Stakes , 1100m
Race Synopsis: The Lloyd Kennewell-trained mare Viddora maintained her consistent form with a deserved Group success here, her second at stakes level and her sixth win in 19 starts. She settled in fifth place on the rails from her inside barrier (1), got through to third on straightening and then finished too well for score a smart win. The favourite Illustrious Lad settled back in seventh place, trapped deep from his outside barrier (9). He went widest of all at the home turn, put in a good run, going to fifth at the 100m and kept finished well for a good run, his wide barrier proving costly. I Am Gypsy showed good early pace and soon went to the front. She was challenged rounding the home turn but kept fighting back and did well in holding on for third. Casino Wizard was a handy third but trapped deep and held on nicely for (2 lengths) fourth while Petits Filous raced outside the leader (I Am Gypsy), looked dangerous at the home turn but tired over the closing stages to finish (2.4 lengths) fifth.
