Galilee Series Final 2021 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Showers

Eleven three year-olds have accepted for the $150,000 Galilee Series Final.  There appears limited chances on paper here however three year-old staying events have been known to produce some rough results!  There are seven geldings and four fillies in this years field.  Cindy Alderson and team Maher/Eustace both have two runners in the race.  The early favourite in the betting is Liqueuro.   He is one of the Alderson runners and has won three of his four starts including the St Leger trial on Bendigo Cup day by .75 length and is a talented stayer in the making.  The second favourite is Through Irish Eyes.  The son of Tavistock broke his maiden in good style at Sale last start and has always raced like a horse looking for 2400m.

Reuber is the second of the Alderson runners and was a nice Werribee maiden winner at the start of March.  Olivia’s Game comes through the St Leger trial where she finished fifth behind Liqueuro and started single figures in the betting.  Furioso tackled the older horses first up and hit the line well.  He is another racing like a horse looking for this trip.  The remaining runners are longer than $20-1.

Galilee Series Final Runner by Runner

1. Liqueuro

This son of Fiorente has won 3 of his 4 career starts.  He got the cash after being heavily backed on debut at Mornington, then won impressively at Flemington.  He returned from a let up at Sandown where he worked home well over 1600m, then relished stepping up to 2200m last start at Bendigo.  He is perfectly drawn in barrier 6 and despite some extra weight looks clearly the one to beat here.

2. Reuber

Stable mate of the favourite Liqueuro.  He was safely held last start at Bendigo but was good prior winning his maiden at Werribee and then finishing fourth at Moonee Valley.  Has a great place chance in a thin race.

3. Storm’s Colours

Was able to get the job done at Kilmore 3 starts ago in a benchmark 58 after enjoying a great run in transit.  Ran better than market expectation at Sandown last time when finishing fourth in a strong benchmark 64 over 1800m.  Out beyond 2000m for the first time is an unknown.

4. Mystery Bad Guy

Has won 2 of his last 3 but both of those wins came at Yarra Valley which is a long way from Caulfield.  He was beaten 10 lengths in the Tasmanian Derby at his only try at listed level.

5. Furioso

Saved from Sale on Wednesday to run here.  He worked to the line very solidly first up in a benchmark 64 at Terang.  Doubt he can win but it wouldn’t surprise to see him finish in the top 4.

6. Through Irish Eyes

Has shown good ability at all 4 starts.  He finally put it all together last start to break his maiden over 2200m at Sale.  The 2400m won’t worry him.  An each way chance and a must for multiples.

7. Silicon Valley

Still in his first racing preparation.  Comes here off the back of back to back high weight wins at Terang and Colac .  That doesn’t seem the right form for this but this stable is lethal when they get out over a trip.

8. Olivia’s Game

Winkers first time.  She impressed winning a strong Cranbourne maiden 2 starts ago, then finished fifth in the St Leger trial.  Hard to see her turning the tables on the favourite here given she was beaten 7 lengths but she does get a 3kg weight swing in her favour.  Daniel Stackhouse is riding well!

9. Secret Sheema

Did a good job to come from last to break her maiden at Bendigo.  This is harder.

10. Yankee Diva

Yankee Diva is a big striding horse who keeps improving with every run.  Didn’t beat much at Kilmore but it wouldn’t shock to see her run in the top half of the field here.

11. Don’t Rush Ruby

Started $101 in the St Leger Trial and was beaten some 19.5 lengths.  Unlikely.
