Watermans Bay has been backed into 2015 Winterbottom Stakes odds of $7.50 and trainer Daniel Morton is confident that the talented sprinter will be suited by the hot speed in the early stages of the Group 1 event at Ascot on Saturday.

Watermans Bay finished his autumn campaign with a strong win in the Group 3 Victoria Handicap (1400m) at Caulfield on April 4 and he showed that he was ready for the Winterbottom Stakes when he finished a close second behind Rock Magic in the Group 3 Colonel Reeves Stakes (1100m) at Ascot on November 3.

The Eternity Range gelding was allocated barrier 11 at the Winterbottom Stakes barrier draw earlier this week, but Morton told Sky Racing HQ that could suit the seven-year-old and he is hopeful his star sprinter will get the last crack at them in the $1 million race.

“He is back where we need him,” Morton said.

“It was a good run first-up and he has tightened up a little bit from the run.

“He will be competitive.

“It is probably not the worst gate for him to be honest.

“It looks like there is good speed inside and if he can slide in somewhere midfieldish or a bit further back, he tends to wind up from a long way out.

“If he can nab some clear running he should be able to get home good.

“We have had him out to 1400 metres and he has won a couple of times for us, so he can wind up and sustain a good 700 or 800 metre run.

“The horse is fit and well and we are looking forward to the race.

Jockey Steven Arnold rode Watermans Bay when he finished second behind Magnifisio in the Winterbottom Stakes last year and he has been booked to take the ride on the veteran sprinter in the 2015 edition of the race.

Morton believes that Arnold knows exactly how he needs to ride Watermans Bay and he is delighted to have acquired the services of the Cox Plate winning hoop once again.

“Steven won on him in Melbourne for us and he just got narrowly beaten by him in the Winterbottom last year,” Morton said.

“He has a good understanding of the horse and hopefully that is a nice fit for us again.”

Watermans Bay is currently available at 2015 Winterbottom Stakes odds of $7.50 with Ladbrokes and he is on the third line of betting behind Buffering ($4) and Fast ‘N’ Rocking ($5.50).

    Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with
    hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me
    in the direction of a good platform.

    Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating
    it but, I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing.

    Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it develop over
    time.

    Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you
    download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few
    simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out.

    Please let me know where you got your design. Appreciate it

  7. timex watches make

    Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the easiest thing
    to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries
    that they just do not know about. You managed to hit
    the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without
    having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    Today, I went to the beach 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!

    I have been surfing on-line more than three hours as of late, yet I by
    no means found any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material
    as you probably did, the web will be a lot more helpful than ever before.
