Press Statement is yet to contest a black type event but interestingly rates as outright $4.60 favourite in 2015 JJ Atkins betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Debuting for an impressive and near-two length victory in a Canterbury minor over 1100m,  the son of Hinchinbrook clear relished a step-up in distance to 1350m when repeating the dose in the Tab Place Multi Plate at Rosehill most recently on May 30th.

Needing some luck in running from barrier 10, Press Statement has been confirmed to be partnered by Tye Angland.

Blueberry Hill is yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of bets for success in 2015 JJ Atkins markets but has maintained status as sole occupant of the second line at a quote of $5.

Arguably the standout two-year-old of the Brisbane Winter Carnival so far, Blueberry Hill won a pair of minor sprints upon debuting before running an agonizingly-close second to Big tree in the Group 3 Ken Russell Memorial (1200m) on April 25th.

Having since won the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) and finished second in the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m), the Myboycharlie filly is sure to receive a gem of a ride from regular hoop Larry Cassidy and will leave from barrier 8.

Talented interstate raiders Counterattack and Bassett currently share the third line of 2015 JJ Atkins betting at quotes of $6 each.

Posting an impressive win in a Sydney minor first-up on April 15th, Counterattack has been luckless in finishing fourth in each of the Champagne Classic and BRC Sires’ Produce but is sure to relish a step-up to a mile.

Having contested just one race start to date, trainer Peter Moody revealed he has had Bassett set on a path towards the 2015 JJ Atkins since the start of the season and is confident Luke Nolen will get the best of the Savabeel gelding from barrier 2.
