Strolling home to win the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) at Doomben last time out, Brazen Beau has opened as and maintained clear favouritism in betting markets for success in the 2014 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes, currently offered at a quote of $2.20 ahead of Pressing ($6), Looks Like The Cat ($6.50) and Time For War ($9.50).

Can Brazen Beau make it two from two on Queensland tracks, or will one of his talented rivals find the Sires’ Produce line in the clear?

1st

Brazen Beau ($2.20)

Debuting with an impressive near five length victory amongst classy competition in the Australian Turf Club Handicap (1100m), Brazen Beau has continued to stamp his claims as one to watch throughout major two-year-old events this season; overcoming two early checks to finish a fighting fifth in the Listed Lonhro Plate (1100m) prior to his Champagne Classic triumph last time out. Allocated the ideal barrier five, the I Am Invincible colt has been confirmed to be partnered by leading jockey Nash Rawiller and is more than worth a wager at current odds, despite having already cut in from an opening quote of nearly $3.

2nd

Pressing ($6)

Aiming to continue a perfect career start which has so-far delivered a record of two comfortable victories from as many starts, Pressing offers punters sensational value for money at $6 for success in the 2014 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes, or $2.20 to run a place. Confirmed to be partnered by champion jockey Damien Oliver for the first time this weekend, the Sebring colt debuted with an impressive victory in the Mindy Green 2.y.o Plate (1200m) before repeating the dose when stepping up in class to the Listed Sky High Mt Dandenong Stakes (1200m) last time out. Trainer Mick Price has been thrilled with the condition of Pressing since arriving in Brisbane last week, and is confident of another polished run from Pressing in what is without doubt his biggest test to date.

3rd

Time For War ($9.50)

While unable to handle the late pace of the Champagne Classic and tenth last time out, Time For War has otherwise registered an impressive career start; winning a minor event of 1100m first-up in November before returning to racing with an impressive turn of foot to claim the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) on March 29th. Overcoming poor position and a heavy track to run on for fourth in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) prior to the Champagne Classic, the Snitzel colt has drawn ideally and arguably offers punters the best value for money of any horse entered in the 2014 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes at current odds.
