Turnbull Stakes start time - What time does the Turnbull Stakes start?

  • The Turnbull Stakes is Race 7 at Flemington
  • Wide-open contest takes place at 4:10PM

Happy Trails - can he win another Flemington Group 1 feature?

The $500,000 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) will be run at Flemington on Sunday with a start time of 4:10PM.

Watch the Turnbull Stakes streamed live online at Crownbet, Ladbrokes or Sportsbet.

    

A capacity field of 16 stayers lines up in the Turnbull Stakes and it is a wide open clash with a host of winning chances in the feature race.

The Group 1 feature is scheduled for 4:10PM. It will be Race 7 on the nine-race program and will be broadcast live on Sky Racing in Australia.

Alpine Eagle is a very talented four-year-old entire trained by Tony McEvoy. He was second in his first up run before finishing less than one length from Fawkner when sixth in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m).

The step up to 2000m should suit with the son of High Chaparral winning the Group 2 Autumn Classic (1800m) back in February.

Royal Descent should be in the fight at some stage with the six-year-old mare as consistent a racehorse as any with top-three finishes at her past five starts – she won the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) before placings in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) and Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m).

Going back to the autumn, she was third in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) over this trip and has earned more than $2.6 million.

Hartnell was a force in the autumn winning the Group 3 Sky High Stakes (2000m) and Group 1 The BMW (2400m).

He is another that will appreciate the step up in distance following a fourth in the Chelmsford.

Amralah scored by three lengths in the Listed Penang Trophy (1800m) against a number of country cups horses but looks to have plenty of ability; factor in the combination of trainer Robert Hickmott and owners Lloyd and Nick Williams at this time of year and it is a recipe for success.

Rising Romance is a classy mare and she was motoring late to just miss Fawkner in the Makybe Diva Stakes. This trip is far more suitable than that run and she looks a very strong chance on Sunday.

Happy Trails is South Australia’s superstar and he has consistently picked up a Group 1 at Flemington over the past number of seasons. Sunday could be the day after the Paul Beshara-trained eight-year-old finished just ahead of Alpine Eagle in the Makybe Diva.

The chances don’t end there with Preferment, Volkstok’n’barrell, Dandino, Who Shot Thebarman, Weary, Set Square and Gust Of Wind all having smaller claims in the Turnbull Stakes.
