2011 Frank Packer Plate Field, Barriers & Weight

April 20th, 2011

The 2011 Frank Packer Plate will kick off the Group racing action early on Saturday with a 2000m contest for the best three-year-olds the country has to offer jumping second on the card.

There are 12 horses expected to line up for the trip and plenty of them are coming off good results.

Gai Warehouse has a host of chances throughout the entire card at Randwick this Saturday and this is probably her best hope with two of the best backed runners.

They are a genuine chance of a quinella with Fast Clip having six runs this year for four wins and two second placings.

The other runner, Needs Further, has performed better than most expected with three victories from three starts in 2011 to bring him well and truly into contention.

His name is fitting as well with the 2000m not expected to be an issue with this horse touted as a future two miler.

Michael Moroney also has two hopefuls in this race however their form couldn’t be more different.

Both Muirfield and Quarterbar are coming off last start ninths and before that they both crossed the line in fifth.

They do have good rides with Kerrin McEvoy and Glyn Schofield respectively with the kiwi Muirfield the best chance out of gate 1.

The biggest contingent though belongs to Anthony Cummings who will saddle up three runners in the Frank Packer Plate who are not without hope.

Shadows In The Sun is the best rated and is coming off a last start third but Craig Williams will have to deal with gate 12.

For that reason Hard Liquor is probably the best chance out of barrier five coming in off a win and a tight second.

His final runner is one of the two fillies,  Song Shan, which will be ridden from gate seven by Glen Boss.
