Race 6 – WA Sires Produce Stakes – This Group 3 feature race over 1400 metres will see $200,000 in prize money on the line. Valour Road will be the narrow favourite here after scoring wins in both of his career races thus far, both of which were over 1200 metres. Stepping up in distance and field quality here but looks to be very much capable of scoring a win in this feature race. Lady Cosmology had a first up win before running second by half a length in her second career race last start, behind the favourite here. Conditions suit her nicely in this and she is a very strong chance of a win. Lordhelpmerun has had 3 career starts, featuring in all three. He opened with a narrow second place before winning his second race. He finished third last start. Comfortable on this track and looks to be racing strongly. Hard to ignore in current form. Will be in the mix.
Valour Road $2.65; Lady Cosmology $2.80; Lordhelpmerun $6.00; Global Reset $9.00; Bam’s On Fire $9.50; Red Snitz $13.00; Nocelle $15.00; Platoon $23.00; Ionyx $51.00; Wild Galah $101.00.
