A typcially competitve Stradbroke Handicap field has been assembled for 2021 which will see this famous Queensland feature return as a $1.5 million dollar race following the temporary prize money reductions in 2020.

Mr Quickie will carry the top wieght of 56.5kg and will jump from gate one under James McDonald.

Goodwood winner Savatoxl has (barrier 13) accepted for the Stradbroke following an even performance in the Kingsford-Smith Cup on May 29 which was taken out by Vega One (barrier four).

Other runners coming out of that same 1300m event include So Si Bon (barrier nine), Niccanova (barrier 14), Victorem (barrier eight), Signore Fox (barrier 19) along with two of the emergencies in Outback Barbie (barrier 20) and Blazejowski (barrier two).

Wild Planet (barrier 15) and The Harrovian (barrier 11) arrive straight from the Doomben 10,000 with both runners placing behind the speedy Eduardo who had strong autumn form lines.

2021 Stradbroke Handicap Tips

Stradbroke Handicap 2021 Best Bet - Victorem

I loved the run of this gelding in the Kingsford-Smith Cup when running fifth, really finding the line over the final 100m and looking as if he will be ready to peak in this event.

Although Vega One showed the sharper turn-of-oot, I do feel Victorem gets closer if the race is run an extra half furlong.

Victorem gets in with 54kg and is a two time winner at Eagle Farm, so I have no doubt with him in this race and especially at the current price

Stradbroke Handicap 2021 Next Best Bet - Apache Chase

This galloper comes through the Fred Best Classic where he beat potential star Ayrton, rating through the roof from all reports. 

He loves the Eagle Farm circuit with five wins from his nine goes and gets in so light as a three-year-old with 49.5kg.

We know Apache Chase is going to be either riding or making the speed as always, and from a great barrier (seven) with that light weight, he should be in this for a long way.

Stradbroke Handicap 2021 Value Bet - Signore Fox

This son of Exceed And Excel is another arriving from the Kingsford-Smith Cup last start when running third at a big price behind Vega One.

Again, compared to the favourite, this horse looks good value now getting in very light at the weights with 52kg, but the issue now is having drawn wide in 19 making things difficult.

With luck in running off a strong speed and a performance like he showed last start, Signore Fox should be included in the longer exotics.
