More Group 1 action to feast upon out west, with the 2020 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) the feature race on a big Ascot card.
Will Pikey take out another Group 1 on hot favourite Trekking? Let’s take a look at each and every runner in the 2020 Winterbottom Stakes…
1 – Trekking – $2.40 👀🏆💰
The obvious class galloper in the race and the clear one to beat. Has been travelling well this prep placing in both the Moir Stakes and the Manikato Stakes, as well as a massive finish in The Everest. Has had a tick over trial out west and with luck in transit should be winning this. The price is the biggest query; it is a very short quote.

2 – Rock Magic – $21 💰
A great story to see an 11-year-old contesting a Group 1, and this old boy is actually in reasonable touch and could definitely run a hole at the odds, can be included in exotics.
3 – Malibu Style – $126
Another old-timer at 9 years of age, but he would really have to turn back the clock to have a chance. Price tells the tale.
4 – Valour Road – $15 💰
Draws to get a nice suck run behind the speed and returns to a Good surface which will suit, well worth including in exotics.
5 – Durendal – $151
Would have to start running now.
6 – Vital Silver – $21
Class horse on its day, but hasn’t come back well this preparation, and would need to lift to be in the finish.
7 – Red Can Man – $18💰
On the quick backup from the Railway Stakes last week, with this looking like a far better setup, is worth including in exotics.
8 – Stageman – $12 💰
Running well this prep but this is a big step up to Group 1 company. The 1200m will suit, but will need to find a few lengths.

9 – Carocapo – Scratched
10 – Laverrod – $71
Not running well enough to compete here, price is about right.
11 – Mankind – $201
12 – Indian Pacific – $8 👀💰
Progressive type who will enjoy getting back on top of the ground, and can certainly come into play if the track is favouring those on speed, or if Trekking finds trouble in the run.

13 – Elite Street – $16 👀🏆💰
Lightly-raced progressive type who looks overs at the current price. Has a booming turn of foot and could surprise here if Trekking is having an off day. Goes in all exotics.
14 – Flirtini – $31
Didn’t look near it first up and this looks too tough.
15 – Essential Spice – $61
Price tells the story.
16 – Celebrity Queen – $8.50 💰
Beat home Stageman and Indian Pacific despite still doing some things wrong, this is a big step up to Group 1 level though.
17 – Condor Heroes – $126
Will set a cracking pace early but will become a roadblock late.
👀 = Must Watch
🏆 = Big Winning Chance
💰= Worth Including in Exotics
