Stradbroke Weights Released

Tuesday, 26th May 2015

The weights for the Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) to be run at Doomben on 6 June were released yesterday with rejuvenated galloper Boban allocated top weight of 58kg for the $2 million race. The Chris Waller-trained Boban claimed the fourth Gr1 victory of his career when landing the Gr1 Doomben 10,000 last weekend after an absence from the winner's circle of more than a year. Next is Swettenham Stud's stallion-in-waiting Trust In A Gust who will carry 56.5kg, last year's winner River Lad has 56kg, Gr1 BTC Cup winner Hot Snitzel will carry 55.5kg, while Goodwood winner Flamberge and dual Gr1 winning Kiwi Sacred Star have each been allotted 55kg. Top Sydney mare Catkins, who has a string of Group victories to her credit, will have to cope with an impost of 54.5kg if she is to break through for that elusive Gr1 success.
