Reldas has returned to racing in typically competitive form this year and is undoubtedly over the All Victoria Sprint Series Final odds at his current quote, for a return to winning form at Flemington Racecourse on Saturday.
Reldas has been a strong and largely consistent performer for trainer Robert Smedon through his entire racing career so far; posting seven wins and as many minors through twenty-five starts since his debut in 2014.
Returning to the paddock for a brief freshen-up after placing second in the Listed Christmas Cup (1200m) on Boxing Day, the Testa Rossa gelding placed sixth in the Listed WJ Adams Stakes (1100m) on February 6th before a gutsy performance for fifth in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) second-up.
Savaging the line for success sin the Listed Abell Stakes (1200m) on March 18th, Reldas was against unlucky to finish just off the pace when fifth in the Listed Hareeba Stakes (1200m) on April 2nd.
Having placed sixth in the Jezabeel Handicap (1000m) before a luckless run in the Midwest Bellarine Handicap (1100m) most recently on June 25th, Reldas opened at All Victorian Sprint Series Final odds of $14, but has already been backed into a quote of $10.
Voodoo Lad carries winning form into the sprint feature, and is a justifiable occupant of the top line of 2016 All Victoria Sprint Series Final betting markets.
Beginning his career under the guidance of Rod Northam before being transferred to the care of Darren Weir prior to his current preparation, Voodoo Lad returned to racing this time for a slick two length win in The Standard BM78 (1100m) on May 5th.
Running second in the A Sheppard Constructions Handicap (1250m) on May 20th, the I Am Invincible gelding savaged the line for a comfortable win in the Di Office Design Handicap (1200m) last time out and should relish the conditions of the All Victorian Sprint Series Final with only 55kgs in tow.
Rich Jack is yet to herald much interest in All Victorian Sprint Series Final, but the conditions of the race suggest the six-year-old will be tough to beat on Saturday.
Trialling well in the lead-up to his return this time, Rich Jack placed fifth in the Phillip Schuler BM84 (1200m) on April 25th; progressing to second in the Brett And Mark Wilson BM90 (1100m) before a credible performance for sixth in the Midwest Bellarine Handicap a fortnight ago.
Rich Jack could very well receive the run of the race from barrier 4 and will have no issue in performing for a high standard with only 54kgs in tow.
The Danerich gelding currently sits tied on the third line of All Victorian Sprint Series Final betting, alongside Alberto Magic at a quote of $7.50 with Ladbrokes Australia.
