BRC Sires Produce Stakes 2021 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

A near capacity field of seventeen two year-old’s have accepted for the $1,000,000 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes.  Five had their last start in the Spirit Of Boom, three in the Ken Russell Memorial, two in the Vinery Handicap and two in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes.  Seven are last start winners.  Trainers Chris Waller and Chris Munce both have two runners entered in the race.  The early favourite in the betting is the unbeaten gelding Prince Of Boom.  He has won his two race starts by a combined total of nearly eight lengths and is a deserved favourite.  The second favourite is Ranch Hand.  He resumed with a nice second in the Ken Russell Memorial and has likely been set for this race.

Port Louis was far from disgraced when finishing fifth in the Champagne Stakes at Randwick – Hugh Bowman sticks with him.  Overpass is attempting to make it four in a row here and can settle handy in the run from barrier 3.  Converge has bolted in, in a trial since placing in the Champagne Stakes.   Gleneagles and Tiger Heart have won their last two starts.  Giannis was only plain first up while Cotehele is a potential improver stepping back onto firm ground.  The remaining runners are $20-1 or longer.

BRC Sires Produce Stakes Runner by Runner

1. Subterranean

Won a Group 3 on the Gold Coast last start but the times weren’t great out of the race.  Nash Rawiller sticks which is a positive but think he needs to improve to play a role here.

2. Converge

Converge comes back from 1600m after finishing third in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes at Rosehill 5 weeks ago.  Draws wide here but he is a go forward horse and has a good front running rider in Tim Clark aboard.  If he can cross with out doing too much work he has an each way chance.

3. Prince Of Boom

Unbeaten son of Spirit Of Boom trained by Robert Heathcote.  He won his maiden by 4.8 lengths on the Sunshine Coast then progressed to win a Group 2 last start by 2.5 lengths.  These efforts have been backed up on the clock.  Only slight query is that he sees a good track for the first time but he is clearly one of the main players here.

4. Baby Wong

Safely held in the Ken Russell Memorial last time as a $13 chance – needed to see more to be recommending here.

5. Gleneagles

This colt now with David Payne has returned with two Hawkesbury wins.  Up in class here but has always shown good ability.

6. Tiger Of Malay

Three wide the trip at Doomben last time where he fought on fairly well considering.  Had supporters in the Sires Produce at Randwick prior but didn’t fire.  Not sure where he is at?

7. Ranch Hand

Well fancied first up in the Ken Russell where he was only collared late by Subterranean.  Looks a likely improved here second up out to 1400m.  Respect the Waller / McDonald combo!

8. Overpass

Overpass is attempting to make it four on the trot here.  Liked the versatility he showed at Gosford last time to take a sit and still be able to finish over the top of them.  Maps to get a nice run here!

9. Tiger Heart

Has won two of his three starts.  Latest he lead and kicked clear to win by 2.3 lengths at the Sunshine Coast.  Times weren’t flash out of the race but he is proven at the distance and has the advantage of his home track.

10. Port Louis

Loved the run at Canterbury two back behind a subsequent winner in Billiondollarbaby.  Then ran well in the Champagne when stepping from 1200m to 1600m.  Comes back to 1400m.  Concerns are synthetic hoof filler first time and a wide barrier.  Does have the connections to over come!

11. Dark Rebel

Powered home over the top of them on a heavy track at Warwick Farm on debut.  This looks a big ask at start two but does get Jamie Kah in the saddle!

12. Cotehele

Easy debut winner at Newcastle, then started very short on a heavy track at Warwick Farm where he finished third.  Gets back onto firmer footing here which looks to suit.

13. Giannis

Another of the Chris Waller runners.  Plain last time but was found to be lame after the race.  Drawn well!

14. Miss Hipstar

This daughter of Star Turn has won three of her six starts.  She won well first up at Eagle Farm, before failing at Doomben.  Tongue tie goes on suggesting there may have been excuses last time.

15. Rhapsody Rose

Last start Doomben winner.  She looks set to peak here third up, onto her home track and has drawn well in barrier 8.  In the mix.

16. Invinsible Tears

Will be looking to go one better after running second at her last three starts.  Think Eagle Farm suits.

17. Berdini’s Girl

Glen Boss takes over from Justin Huxtable aboard Berdini’s Girl.  She is never far away and maps to get a soft run on the fence.  Consider for multiples.
