15/4/2019 Weather to determine Probabeel's next run

Matamata trainer Jamie Richards will be keeping an eye on the Sydney weather in order to determine whether two-year-filly Probabeel (NZ) (Savabeel) takes her place in the Gr.1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) at Randwick this weekend. “Probabeel has stayed on in Sydney after her game run for fifth in the Sires’ Produce (Gr.1, 1400m) last weekend,” he said. “She worked very nicely on the Polytrack on Saturday morning, but we won’t be making a decision on starting her in the Champagne Stakes until later in the week. “It will depend on the weather as she needs a good track, so if she works up well during the week and the forecast is good, she could well take her place, but we won’t know for a few days yet.”
In early betting markets for the Gr.1 Champagne Stakes, Probabeel is $5. Check out the latest Champagne stakes betting markets.
