The Steven O’Dea trained Sir Moments will be set for the Group 1 $1.5m AAMI Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 11 after missing a run at the Gold Coast last Saturday.

Sir Moments was set to take his place in the Group 2 $358,000 All-New Jaguar F-Pace A.D. Hollindale Stakes (1800m) at the Gold Coast but was a race morning scratching after succumbing to a minor foot problem.

“It wasn’t that bad but just enough so he couldn’t run on Saturday,” O’Dea told AAP.

“We will freshen him up and hopefully set him for the Stradbroke.”

O’Dea was undecided if he was to target the Stradbroke Handicap or the Group 1 $650,000 Hardy Brothers Doomben Cup (2000m) at Doomben on May 21 but after missing the run at the Gold Coast, the 1400m of the Stradbroke Handicap is a more suitable target.

Sir Moments ran second to Leebaz in the 2015 version of the Hollindale Stakes and O’Dea was looking forward to getting the five year old back to a middle distance following his fast finishing third last start to Bewhatyouwannabee in the Listed $100,000 Montrose Therapy & Respite Services Tails Stakes (1600m) at the Sunshine Coast on April 23.

At his previous start Sir Moments was able to produce his trade mark finishing burst to win a $60,000 1350m Handicap at Doomben on April 9.

Sir Moments is the winner of eight of his twenty-two starts with his best win being the 2014 Group 2 $350,000 Sky Racing Queensland Guineas (1400m) at Eagle Farm.

In early Stradbroke Handicap betting at Ladbrokes.com.au Sir Moments is listed as a $34 chance in a market order that has the Ciaron Maher trained Azkadellia the favourite at $4.80.

The Lee and Anthony Freedman trained Malaguerra is next in the betting at $6 ahead of Darren Weir’s Black Heart Bart at $7 and Victory Stakes winner Fell Swoop, John O’Shea’s Ghisoni and last start Hall Mark Stakes winner Music Magnate all at $11.
