William Reid Stakes 2020 Racing Tips - Can Loving Gaby win another WFA G1?

The William Reid Stakes looks one of the hottest sprints we have seen in Victoria for a long time now with the 3YOs dominating the market.

We are siding with a 3YO in this race, the filly down the bottom who we believe will turn the tables on Bivouac.

William Reid Stakes Best Bet - Loving Gaby

Everyone knows that I am a big fan of this filly and am very excited to see her back around a bend.

She is a horse that has an electric turn of foot, and now that the favourite has drawn the inside gate, Craig Williams probably needs to box seat or settle midfield to keep him in his corner.

Gaby is clearly in the top two best horses in this field and is the current Manikato champion from last year, so to me, at $5, she is a great bet.

We know she gets around the track and the WFA conditions do suit her.

Last start, I do not believe she was in the right part of the track and with a better run in transit, she has the ability to turn the tables on Bivouac.

William Reid Stakes Value Bet - Vital Silver

It was hard to ignore his Manikato second to Loving Gaby giving her 7.5kg, and only giving her 4.5kg here, yet he is four times the price.

We have seen in recent weeks how strong the WA brigade are and this may just be one of those sprinters that fly under the radar.

Subsequent to that Manikato win was a second placing in the Winterbottom Stakes behind Hey Doc who is a Manikato winner himself, so he is up to this class.

With the speed on up front, that will likely suit him if they can swoop on the night, giving him the chance to unleash a turn of foot.

At nearly $20, he is a great chance in this race.
