2011 Cameron Handicap Form Guide

September 13th, 2011

The 2011 Cameron Handicap form guide is a tough one to read with a string of 13 entries pretty much all with claims over the 1500m trip at Newcastle tomorrow afternoon.

As we mentioned earlier in the week there is an interesting mix of runners in the race with out and out sprinters stepping up in trip and more natural stayers trying to get going over a shorter journey.

That’s what’s going to make the race so interesting and why it pays to read the 2011 Cameron Handicap form guide below outlining the main hopes in the race.

2011 Cameron Handicap Form Guide

All Silent

First out of the blocks is All Silent, an eight year old gelding that needs to really show form here or risk retirement very soon. His last start was a 10th in the Tramway Handicap but to be fair it was first up and he was less than five lengths form Sincero at the end. At his best he wins this race and from two trips at 1500m he has won once, don’t forget the old boy.

Ginga Dude

He hasn’t raced since April 23rd when eh struggled on a wet track to finish nearly 12 away from My Kingdom Of Fife in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes. Not only has he never won over 1500m he’s never run over it before, the same story with the Newcastle track. He’s been specked in the betting but it’s tough to see him with enough get up and go to worry them here.

Neeson

He’s the Luxbet favourite for the race but he’s been near enough to favourite in all three starts this prep. In those he’s run two fourths and a third, his last start a fourth in the Tramway two lengths behind Sincero. He can handle all surfaces which is a big plus but if he is a genuine spring Group 1 hope he has to win here.

Izababe

This six year old gelding won the Moree Cup last start over 1400m and as a result has come well into play here. The start before that he was fourth in the Show County Handicap in a rare trip to metro level. This horse has an imposing career record, he’s won ten from 14 starts and the New South Wales country cup’s circuit is his for the taking. If we get some rain at Newcastle you’ll know who to back, he’s five and zero on slow surfaces.

Raspberries

This four year old mare was poor first up when she finished third last at Rosehill on August 13 but last start she was back with a gutsy win over this trip of 1500m. That alone makes her a big player, so too the fact she has just 53kg alongside her name. She’ll jump from gate two and pick up a gun run, with four wins and four seconds from 11 runs watch out for her late.

These are the top picks for the 2011 Cameron Handicap and the ones we think you should be following tomorrow afternoon.
