2011 Gloaming Stakes Form Guide

September 15th, 2011

The 2011 Gloaming Stakes form guide is listed below and as we pointed out earlier in the week as far as we’re concerned it’s going to be a battle of the top five.

Sure a roughie could storm home late and blow us to bits but based on what we’ve seen of these horses we’re confident that they’ll be the ones filling the placings at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday.

2011 Gloaming Stakes Form Guide

Cocky Raider

This horse promises a lot and there’s more than a few punters out there sticking strong with him not wanting to miss out when he finally does go bang. It could be this weekend as well, he was solid at best first up when fourth in the Ming Dynasty, with a run under his belt and first time out to the 1800m though this could be the one for David Payne and Corey Brown.

Win For Wilson

He likes to get out in front and that’s what always puts him in the race. You don’t have to worry much about luck or barrier draw, he’ll plod along and play catch me if you can. First time over 1800m who knows if they will?

Strike The Stars

He’s the favourite as far as we’re concerned even if he is one of the only ones without a win next to his name.  He’s performed so well against the older horses last start at Warwick Farm  and back to his own grade a win for Strike The Stars, Anthony Cummings and Hugh Bowman seems to be a massive possibility.


This horse has raps and he has them from some smart minds. He was a tight second last start in the Ming Dynasty after holding on narrowly to win the start previous at Warwick Farm. Ignoring the result it was certainly an improved run as well so if it continues he’ll be in this one. Does need to step up but he’s heading the right direction.


Our fifth pick for the Gloaming Stakes is actually another maiden, he’s yet to win despite nine attempts. That being said he’s placed in six of them and run fourth in another so he’s very consistent. His last four starts have been at metro level in Brisbane for a second and three thirds. This is a step up for him but an honest type like this just can’t be ignored.
