Raceday focus: Stawell

DARREN Weir towers over the Stawell meeting day with 14 runners spread across eight races.

Of the 91 acceptors for the program, Weir has almost 13 per cent of the entries.

He has at least one runner in every race, with four in the 1300m maiden — Kragle, Midas Prince, Westham and Amon.

Darren Weir has a powerful contingent at Stawell on Tuesday.Source:AAP


DUNMAM (Race 3, No. 10)

Possibly the pick of the Weir army after logging placings at Ballarat. Ran on strongly on debut and then just beaten from a wide draw last start. Perfectly suited by the jump to 1600m.


DON’T WAIT (Race 1, No. 2)

Prime for this after three positive trials, the latest last week when third at Cranbourne over 800m. Has good speed and should be suited by the small field here.

ZELSIGNORET (Race 8, No. 7)

Racing well. Not beaten far last time at Pakenham when hunted to the lead. Won previous start nicely when held up before running on strongly. Hard to beat.


A full book for Yendall — and all for Darren Weir. They are: FAIRY SONG (Race 1, No. 5), ANYTHINGS POSSIBLE (Race 2, No. 1), DUNMAM (Race 3, No. 10), MIDAS PRINCE (Race 4, No. 6), ALLSPICE (Race 5, No. 7), SPICER (Race 6, No. 5), STAR SEARCH (Race 7, No. 4) and ZELSIGNORET (Race 8, No. 7).
