William Reid Market Suggests Gr1 Wide Open

Friday, 27th March 2015

With connections opting not to run Trust In A Gust in tonight's Gr1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley (see above report), bookmakers and punters are having plenty of trouble settling on a favourite for the dash around the tight Melbourne circuit. Rebel Dane and Angelic Light share top billing at a $5 quote, while Vain Queen, who put up a great run in the Gr1 Oakleigh Plate, is a $6.50 chance. Former Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes heroine Earthquake has come in for support, trimming up from $8.50 to $7. The William Reid has an imposing Hall Of Fame with recent winners including Spirit Of Boom (2014), Black Caviar (2013), Foxwedge (2012), Black Caviar (2011), Turffontein (2010) and Apache Cat (2009 & 2008).
