Having returned to the track in peak condition this season, Junoob has opened as and maintained status as clear favourite in betting markets for success in the 2014 Hollindale Stakes, currently offered at a quote of $2.50 ahead of Streama ($4.80), Moriarty ($5.50) and Angel Of Mercy ($6.50).

Will Junoob continue his sensational run of form and win the 2014 Hollindale Stakes, or will one of his talented rivals find the line in the clear?

1st

Junoob ($2.50)

Securing an impressive total of nine wins and seven places from 25 competitive appearances so far, Junoob has contested a particularly long and successful preparation this time in and has arguably hit career best form over his three most recent races; finishing third in the Listed Parramatta Cup (1900m) on March 1st before claiming back to back victories in the Listed Randwick City Stakes (2000m) and Group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes (2000m) most recently. Confirmed to be partnered by leading jockey Nash Rawiller, Junoob is a proven performer over distance and will be particularly difficult to beat on the expected firm racing surface.

2nd

Streama ($4.80)

A standout performer in each of her racing preparations since debuting at the beginning of 2011, five-year-old mare Streama is a three time Group 1 champion and offers punters exceptional value for money for success this weekend at current $4.80 odds. Contesting a particularly strong and consistent 2013 spring carnival which included a victory in the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m), the Stratum mare is yet to break through for a race win in five starts this time in, but has continued in typically competitive form; finishing sixth in both the Group 1 Canterbury Guineas (1300m) and Group 1 George Ryder Stakes, and fourth in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) most notably. Allocated the ideal barrier 4 for the Gold Coast Guineas, Streama poses a serious threat this weekend with in-form jockey Blake Shinn on board.

3rd

Precedence ($15)

Arguably offering punters the best value for money at generous $15 odds to win the Hollindale Stakes, well-trialled gelding Precedence has won 10 races and finished in the places in a further eight over 56 competitive starts and will line up as undoubtedly the most experienced runner in the Hollindale Stakes final field. While yet to appear on track in 2014, Precedence has priceless experience in ‘big name’ races and be offered great opportunity to find ideal running position after claiming the central barrier 7 for this weekend’s feature race.
