ATC Sires Produce 2021 Preview

Track: Soft   Weather: Fine

There is a field of 10 runners for the $1,000,000 ATC Sires Produce Stakes with seven colts and three fillies. Four of the runners had their last start in the Group 1 Golden Slipper, two in the Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes and two in a 1200m 2YO maiden handicap at Warwick Farm. The other two runners came via the Group 2 Sires Produce at Flemington and the Mornington Sires’. The clear early favourite is Anamoe who was impressive when he came from well back in the field to grab 2nd in the Golden Slipper with excellent race sectionals. Second favourite is Four Moves Ahead who won her first two races before a solid 4th in the Golden Slipper. Third favourite is Tiger Of Malay who chased hard for 0.1 length 2nd in the Pago Pago last outing.

Captivant ran 3rd in the Group 2 Skyline Stakes then 5th in the Golden Slipper. Lightsaber has won his last three starts in a row in Melbourne, including the G2 Sires Produce. Hilal had the best overall race sectionals when he ran on strongly for 1.8 lengths 7th in the Pago Pago. Daily Bugle won the Mornington Sires by 1.25 lengths while Queen Of Wizardry was 13th in the Golden Slipper. The other two runners are both still maidens and are currently at triple figure odds.

2021 ATC Sires Produce Runner by Runner

1. Anamoe

This Street Boss colt trained by James Cummings was 3rd in the Group 1 Blue Diamond, won the Group 2 Todman Stakes and was 2nd in the Golden Slipper. He has already amassed a million dollars in prizemoney and looks the one they have to beat.

2. Captivant

He ran 3rd in the G2 Skyline Stakes then 5th in the Golden Slipper. In both of those races he had to be steadied off heels so perhaps could have finished closer. One for the multiples.

3. Lightsaber

This Zoustar colt trained by Peter Moody has won three of his four starts and is the only runner to have won over the distance (not once but twice). He won by 2.25 lengths over 1400m at Sandown Hillside then won the G2 Sires Produce over 1400m at Flemington by 1.5 lengths. I like this colt and expect to see him in the finish.

4. Tiger Of Malay

He was hampered at the 150m when 1.9 lengths 5th in the G2 Silver Slipper Stakes, and should have finished closer, then was a very close 2nd in the Pago Pago. One of the chances.

5. Daily Bugle

Finished 4.15 lengths 11th in the Sires Produce at Flemington then won the Mornington Sires over 1500m by 1.25 lengths. Rough hope.

6. Hilal

Ran on strongly from well back for 1,8 lengths 7th in the Pago Pago. Not the worst.

7. Lease

One of two runner for Anthony Cummings (the other is Chill) this Choisir colt is still a maiden and is aiming too high.

8. Four Moves Ahead

This Snitzel filly trained by John Sargent has two wins from three starts. She won on debut then was a 0,3 length winner of the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes before chasing well for 4th in the Golden Slipper. Should be in the finish.

9. Queen Of Wizardry

She debuted with a win in a 2YO handicap then ran  4th in the $2M Magic Millions 2YO Classic at the Gold Coast. She only finished 13th in the Golden Slipper after being checked of  heels at the 700m and not running on. Could surprise.

10. Chill

Has had three races and was 0.2 lengths 2nd in a mid-week 2YO maiden handicap last start. Will win $10,000 here even if she finishes 9th or 10th.
