The field for the Group 2 $250,000 Inglis Villiers Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on Saturday has been reduced to sixteen runners with the early scratching of Kenjorwood.

The Darren Weir trained Kenjorwood will join the other Villiers Stakes scratching Loyalty Man and run at Flemington in the $90,000 Chanteclair Handicap (1600m).

The betting for the Villiers Stakes at Ladbrokes.com.au is virtually unchanged with the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Fabrizio at the top of the market order at $3.20 ahead of Victorian galloper Hazzabeel at $8.50 and James Cummings’ High Midnight at $9.

Kenjorwood has plenty of weight to carry in the Chanteclair Handicap with his allocated 60kg reduced to 58.5kg courtesy of apprentice Jye McNeil’s 1.5kg claim and is well in the betting at $6.

The Lindsay Park trained Mihany heads the market order for the Chanteclair Handicap at $3.50 just ahead of the well supported Burning Front who has formed in from $5 to $4.80 while Loyalty Man is listed as a $7 chance.

Weir was keen to head to Sydney with Kenjorwood but a wide barrier draw at sixteen has influenced the premiership winning trainer to stay in Melbourne with the seven year old gelding and he has also scratched Lucky Paddy, Hijack Hussy and Lord Van Percy from their Randwick engagements.

“Lord Van Percy and Hijack Hussy will run in Melbourne because they look more suitable races and the main one is Kenjorwood. He drew wide and we are going to wait and run him in Melbourne as well,” Weir told racing.com.

“If he had drawn a gate I would have went but it is just hard when you draw out.

“Those three are going run in Melbourne instead of Sydney and Lucky Paddy will wait for the Koroit Cup at Warrnambool.”

Kenjorwood ran his best race this campaign at his third run in when second to Mihany in the $90,000 Memorial Handicap (1600m) at Pakenham on December 3 and has drawn barrier eight in the eleven horse Chanteclair Handicap field.

    First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I’d
    like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how
    you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted
    simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

  3. James Frazer Mann

    My family members all the time say that I am wasting my time
    here at web, except I know I am getting experience daily by reading thes pleasant articles or reviews.

    alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you
    could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours as of late, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s beautiful price enough for me. In my view, if all website owners
    and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web can be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time deciding
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I
    ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  18. Melva

    This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to keep a reader
    entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!)
    Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    Hi, every time i used to check webpage posts here in the early hours in the daylight, for the reason that
    i love to learn more and more.

  20. Lelio Vieira Carneiro Junior

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
