2012 Peter Young Stakes Form Guide


Ninth of nine in the CF Orr but you couldn’t expect much more of the old boy over such a short journey, he’ll be better suited here but needs a good result to set up his autumn.


Few will forget his Ranvet win as a $101 chance last year, he hasn’t run since April so he’s fresha nd ready to get stuck in.


Won the Bart Cummings, ran second in the Mackinnon Stakes and third in the Zipping Classic. He’s won over the trip before but doesn’t have the best first up record.

Glass Harmonium

Assuming he jumps with the pack he’ll be on the pace early and he’ll be hard to run down. Was fourth in the Underwood over this trip during the spring.


Won the Carlyon Cup first up over a mile which sets him up perfectly for the 1800m on Saturday.


Got out to 1700m last start and surprised plenty when he ran second as an $81 chance at Caulfield. Will need to surprise again if he’s to win against this field.


Only beat Efficient home in the CF Orr but like the rest of them this is the journey where we can start to judge him properly.

Extra Zero

Was solid first up when fifth over 1400m at Caulfield, this trip suits him better and he’ll take fitness from that run.

Lucas Cranach

First up since running third in the Melbourne Cup, plenty of expectations regarding this horse over the autumn.


Dominated in Perth but was a well beaten fifth last start in the Carlyon Cup.

King Diamond

Fourth in the Carlyon Cup but has a win and two seconds from three goes at this trip.


Ran ok when fourth in the CF Orr Stakes, yet to show his German form but this might be the race.

Southern Speed

Only Black Caviar stopped her going two from two to start this prep, she’s the horse to beat and the race favourite.
