September 21st, 2010

This Saturday as part of the action of Randwick’s George Main Stakes Day, four Group race features will take place including the $125,000 Group 3 Colin Stephen Quality Handicap (2400m).

Thirteen quality gallopers have been nominated for the 2010 Colin Stephen Quality Handicap, including five horses owned by Lloyd Williams worth checking the odds for.

Gai Waterhouse’s Herculian Prince is the top early pick at Ladbrokes.com.au to win the Colin Stephen

Top runners Alandi, C’est La Guerre, Martial Law, Mourayan and Muir, all trained by Robert Hickmott, have been entered for Saturday’s showdown on way to the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups later in the carnival.

A number of Williams’ contingent are also among the entries for Friday night’s Group 3 JRA Cup at Moonee Valley, with a decision on which race they will target to be made later in the week.

Other notable nominees for the Colin Stephen Quality include Kingston Town Stakes winner Herculian Prince and Chris Waller’s improving gelding Snow Alert.

The headline race at Randwick on Saturday will be the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) where Gai Waterhouse’s star mare More Joyous, stablemate to Herculian Prince, is likely to start the favourite.
