2011 Rough Habit Plate Nominations

May 10th, 2011

The 2011 Group 3 Rough Habit Plate has attracted a huge field of early nominations with a capacity line up well and truly on the cards.

There are currently 20 horses still in the running for one of the 16 starting positions when the race jumps this Saturday at Doomben.

It will be a lead up event to the feature race BTC Cup which hosts Black Caviar, ensuring a massive crowd will be in attendance on race day.

Even in this early stage it looks like finding a winner in the Rough Habit Plate could be a tough affair and if a capacity field does indeed enter then things will become even harder.

There is a host of local talent on show which the rest of Australia is unlikely too have seen too much of.

Equissential is at the top of the ballot and will be one of the favourites.

He’s joined by the likes of Chateau Fort and Igles Star which will also feature strongly in betting.

In terms of the southern raiders there are a couple of names some people should be familiar with.

Levi’s Choice comes here after getting big wraps early on and really needs to put in a good showing.

Qarterbar is another which is fresh on the scene and shown a bit of promise in recent races.

We wait anxiously to discover the Rough Habit Plate Final Field and try to pick out a few of the top chances.

Later in the week we’ll bring you a full form guide followed by our predictions come race day.
