SIR DRAGONET SHORT PRICED FAVOURITE FOR ORR STAKES

But the big question is will the 2020 W.S Cox Plate winner be entering the barriers on Saturday with bigger goals for the Stallion in mind

Sir Dragonet was one of ten acceptors for the $500,000 Group 1 CF Orr Stakes on Saturday and it will be the first chance for punters to see the import run since a triumphant spring where he won the Cox Plate and finished 6th in the Melbourne Cup. 


Currently $2.90 in betting Sir Dragonet definitely has the class on the field but rider Glenn Boss who is resuming his relationship with the Maher and Eustace trained runner has said he would have no issue if he sat in the sheds at 4.55pm on Saturday.

“The only way he’s going to run is if he gets conditions to suit,” Boss said. “He has to get the conditions. If we get a good (3), he won’t be running.”

Sir Dragonet’s goal for the Autumn has always been the All Star Mile and the CF Orr Stakes has always been an addition to the program with the $5m prize in March at The Valley the main goal.

“It doesn’t matter to me because eventually he’s going to run in two races with nine million bucks then he’s going to be back here (in Melbourne) in the spring,” Boss said.

“He was only going to have a light autumn, with the All-Star Mile and the Queen Elizabeth (Stakes), then he was going to get ready for next year’s Cox Plate because he’s going to be around a bit longer.

“If they (conditions) are not to suit, they’re not to suit. He’s a valuable colt and you don’t run valuable colts unless you think they can win.”

Sir Dragonet showed no ill effects from his spell in the paddock after coming back to win a 1200m trial at Geelong last week. 

The current Cox Plate Champion  is $2.90 in betting for the race with Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig runner Crosshaven second favourite at $4.00 and Chris Waller trained Imaging at $7.

Should Sir Dragonet avoid the race we can expect heavy deductions on the markets leading into the race.
