Southern Cross Stakes Field & Barriers 2012

February 22nd, 2012

The 2012 Southern Cross Stakes final field features 10 horses and Chris Waller can account for nearly half of them.

The premiership leading Sydney trainer boasts four entries in the 1200m race and he’s well in with a chance of winning it.

The likes of Neeson for Jo Pride, No Evidence Needed for John Thompson and Latin News for David Payne will all prove hard to beat but Waller has the team to do it.

First off he has Triple Elegance, a horse that certainly doesn’t win out of turn but often runs in the top grade against field stronger than this.

The next is Firebolt, a rocks or diamonds type originally trained by Roger James in New Zealand who ran with success during the Brisbane winter carnival last year.

Snow Alert is there as well, another that doesn’t win out of turn but can put itself in a good position from barrier three.

Finally it’s Beijing Boy, a horse that might be coming towards the end of his career but on the form of old he’s well in here.

You could do worse than backing Chris Waller in just about every race he competes in and this event certainly fits the mould.
