Leading form analyst Adam Blencowe has Sir Moments on top of his 2014 Villiers Stakes tips, but believes that Strawberry Boy represents the best value in the Group 2 event at Royal Randwick on Saturday.

Strawberry Boy made his debut for the Chris Waller stable when he took out the Listed Toyota Ladies Day Cup (1400m) at Hawkesbury on November 6 and he was only run down late by I’m Imposing and Estonian Princess in the Listed Festival Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens on November 29.

Blencowe told RSN that he rated Strawberry Boy’s Festival Stakes effort as one of the best performances of his racing career to date and he is happy to back the Redoute’s Choice gelding at his current Villiers Stakes odds of $7.

“The way that the current market sits I thought that Strawberry Boy was a little bit over the odds,” Blencowe said.

“He is two from at the mile and this sets up well for him.

“His Festival effort was terrific, as good as he has gone on our figures, and in that sort of form he comes here with a better than a $7 or $8 chance.

“I think that he is the one that I would like to have running for me.”

Blencowe believes that the Festival Stakes is the key form guide to the Villiers Stakes and was impressed with the performances of Estonian Princess and Sir Moments in the Listed event, but he is not ruling out Helen Page-trained Rudy, who stamped himself as a Villiers Stakes contender when he recorded a fast-finishing win in the Listed Recognition Stakes (1630m) at Doomben on November 29.

“It is a good old classic mile handicap at Randwick, which always produce good betting options,” Blencowe said.

“I think that Sir Moments is going to be really hard to beat and I think that he ran a really nice trial for the race in the Festival Stakes.

“I thought Estonian Princess was good there as well and Rudy off the Listed win up in Brisbane measure up on our figures as well.”

Sir Moment has been backed into 2014 Villiers Stakes odds of $4.80 and is currently a clear favourite from Rudy ($7.50 out to $6.50), Team Snowden-trained Rose Of Choice ($7.50 into $7), Strawberry Boy ($5.50 out to $7) and Estonian Princess ($8 into $7).

I think this has more to do with someone sitting on the floor of a busy retail store, during the beginning of the peak shopping season rather than an attack on a breastfeeding mother. Not every incident of someone being asked to move while breastfeeding is an “attack” on breastfeeding itself. I think you all are looking for a reason to get your panties in a wad.

    he was “under attack” when he said that and was having it rough that day… That was after I was accused and defamed for telling AK about the remark… I did not back down and stood my ground until JF admitted he said it. ES and JR were in the TMP office when JF said the comment and said nothing about it as far as I know. Why? Did they assume JF “had ahold of it in God”? That thought never crossed my mind. Though I was duped in other situations.. and just by me being in the group for so many years is evidence that I did not stand up every time. Yes, deep regrets over that. John

    Hey, great video. However, I’m pretty sure Daft Punk didn’t sample Chic. As a long time Daft Punk fan I’ve never heard that, it’s not in the liner notes, so do you have any source for that other than your ears? The line has some similarities but it’s most likely created from scratch, especially considering the B part of the song.Otoh, in a liberal intepretation of the terms “remix” and “sampling”, inspiration could count…

Thanks for the great recipe!
