The William Reid Stakes is run at Group One level over 1200m where we see one of the stronger fields we have seen in some time with the likes of September Run and Swats That down the bottom, as well as Oakleigh Plate winner Portland Sky, Moir Stakes winner Pippie, Newmarket runner-up Indian Pacific and two-time Manikato winner Hey Doc.

September Run disappointed last start in the Newmarket when favourite but did have excuses while Swats That on face value was not at her best.

Brooklyn Hustle has been a good thing beat at her last two starts, but now back to her favourite course, she looks a player.

Masked Crusader comes back down from Sydney after an unlucky third in the Canterbury Stakes while Portland Sky draws the pole after his Oakleigh Plate win.

2021 William Reid Stakes Tips


William Reid Stakes 2021 Best Bet - Swats That

She is the map horse of this race where from barrier four she can sit off the likes of Pippie and Portland Sky then hopefully explode as she approaches the bend in clear galloping room.

Her Newmarket run was okay with the inside four horses all finishing in the top six in the race, so she was on of the better performers on the outside of the track.

Swats That was brave in the Lightning prior to that performance, so as long as she handles Moonee Valley okay, she shapes as one of the clear horses to beat.

Williams Reid Stakes 2021 Next Best Bet - Brooklyn Hustle

This girl is a star but her racing pattern has prevented her from being a two-time Group One winning mare this preparation.

She naturally gets back in her races, but returning to Moonee Valley where her two wins have come looks the big tick.

Brooklyn Hustle is third-up, fit, in-form and has a turn of foot that very few horses possess in Australia, so if she sees clear air from the 500m then look out, we have a new Group One winner.

William Reid Stakes 2021 Value Bet - Portland Sky

He dead-heated with Celebrity Queen in the Oakleigh Plate, sustaining a hot speed and although carrying a light weight, he had no right to stick on the way that he did.

In that race, Portland Sky comfortably beat Ancestry who is much shorter than him in the market coming off a win in a much weaker race.

He draws barrier one so will do no work to find a positive spot in running and could get the slip on them if the pressure to his outside falls back into those trying to cut the pack's face.
