2011 Kindergarten Stakes Form Guide

#1 – Hot Snitzel (Barrier – 3) (56.5kgs)

  • Trainer: Gerald Ryan
  • Jockey: Brenton Avdulla
  • Career Stats: 4s – 1w – 1p
  • Last Start: 12th at Rosehill

Didn’t make an impact in the Golden Slipper but the fact he was there proves his worth. Big drop in class so expect to see him in the final 400m.

  • Trainer: John P Thompson
  • Jockey: Jim Cassidy

Just missed out on the Golden Slipper after coming second in the Pago Pago Stakes. Looks in good touch and has barrier 1 to boot.

  • Trainer: Chris Waller
  • Jockey: Glyn Schofield
  • Career Stats: 1s – 0w – 1p

Just the one start for a tight second placing at Warwick Farm. Gets barrier four and like all novices expect the unexpected.

#4 – Queenian (Barrier – 6) (56.5kgs)

  • Trainer: David Payne
  • Jockey: Michael Rodd
  • Career Stats: 2s – 0w – 1p
  • Last Start: 3rd at Randwick

Last start third was on the first of January so this may as well be considered a first up run. He looks out of his depth unless David Payne has worked wonders in the last three months.

#5 – Conroy’s Gap (Barrier – 2) (56.5kgs)

  • Trainer: Gerald Ryan
  • Jockey: Hugh Bowman
  • Career Stats: 0s – 0w – 0p
  • Last Start: –

Yet to run so who knows what will turn up on race day. Good habit to always include these in your exotics to avoid any nasty surprises.

#6 – Jackpot Queen (Barrier – 9) (54.5kgs)

  • Trainer: Mathew Dale
  • Jockey: Mathew Cahill
  • Career Stats: 3s – 1w – 2p
  • Last Start: 1st at Wellington

Three starts for two seconds and a win makes for pretty good reading, especially when she was beaten by quality names You’re Canny and Pane In The Glass. Tough to judge her jump in class so maybe just a place hope.

#7 – Anise (Barrier – 8) (54.5kgs)

  • Trainer: Peter Snowden
  • Jockey: Kerrin McEvoy
  • Career Stats: 3s – 1w – 1p
  • Last Start: 4th at Rosehill

Won on debut and was beaten by Foxwedge second up. Last start in the Reisling Stakes she was fourht behind Satin Shoes and Elite Falls. One of the main contenders here.

#8 – Fox (Barrier – 7) (54.5kgs)

  • Trainer: Adam Duggan
  • Jockey: Joshua Parr
  • Career Stats: 1s – 0w – 1p
  • Last Start: 2nd at Canterbury

She was only second to Do You Think first up so this is a horse with plenty of potential. Lesser known trainer and underused jockey, good story in the making.

#9 – Aubazine (Barrier – 5) (54.5kgs)

  • Trainer: Gai Waterhouse
  • Jockey: Corey Brown
  • Career Stats: 1s – 0w – 0p
  • Last Start: 5th at Randwick.

She’d need to be at her absolute best and all the others at their worst for her to have any hope of sneaking a place in this race.

#10 – Shadow West (Barrier – 10) (54.5kgs)

  • Trainer: Anthony Cummings
  • Jockey: Glen Boss
  • Career Stats: 3s – 0w – 1p
  • Last Start: 5th at Rosehill

Fifth in the Magic Night Stakes but only two lengths off the winner. Doesn’t look like a threat on paper but Anthony Cummings is due for some good fortune..
