2024 JJ Atkins Tips


2024 JJ Atkins Best Bet - Broadsiding

Punters weren't put off by the wide draw or the gap between runs, with Broadsiding coming from the rear to take out Group 2 BRC Sires' Produce Stakes (1400m) on June 1.

The Godolphin colt was back in trip following his Champagne Stakes triumph on the last day of the Sydney Autumn Carnival and he's expected to improve from his Brisbane debut.

His winning run started when stepping up to a mile and while all of his victories have been on rain affected tracks, arguably the most brilliant of those was on a drying Soft 5.

While a wide alley wouldn't have put too many off here, he can settle closer from a low draw and despite having a platform to spike, even a slight regression has him winning this.
2024 JJ Atkins Next Best Bet - Mr Artemisia

Chris Waller is aiming for his fourth JJ Atkins victory and the champion trainer prepares both Imperialist (barrier 12) and Mr Artemisia (barrier 3) for the 2024 edition.

While the former also has different form to the Sires', having upset Aemelius in last Saturday's Phoenix, Mr Artemisia looks to be the more talented of the two Waller contenders.

Emirate would've been a clear second market elect had he come north for this feature and this colt was the eye-catcher behind that stablemate when charging home at Rosehill.

The Autumn Sun was Waller's last JJ Atkins winner and Mr Artemisia is a son of the five-time Group 1 winner and like may of his progeny, this youngster should eat up the extra distance.
2024 JJ Atkins Value Bet - Barbaric Lad

The Anthony & Sam Freedman stable always have to be respected in grand finals and this is the clear target race for Barbaric Lad, who contests the Group 1 JJ Atkins third-up.

The son of Brutal was put away after a 1200m breakthrough at Pakenham back on February 22, with that second outing following a strong debut performance at Sandown.

While he's been competitive in both Brisbane attempts, I'm not convinced that he's relished wet tracks in those runs and yet he continued to surge in the Sires' when specked at long odds.

A youngster who looks suited up to a mile third-up, Barbaric Lad could be one of the big improvers from that key lead-up race, especially now that he gets a firm surface.
