The fourth race on the Crown Oaks Day card at Flemington’s third Melbourne Cup Carnival meeting today is the $150,000 Listed Gucci Stakes (1200m), the second three-year-old fillies’ race of the day due to jump at 1:20pm (AEDST).
The 2010 Gucci Stakes field is made up of 13 runners following the scratching of #9 Marvellous Miss, #13 Sultah and #14 Nosteppins.
The pronounced favourite to win Flemington Race 4 today is Curtana currently paying $3.70 through Luxbet.
The Peter Moody-trained Exceed And Excel filly Curtana has been in perfect form for this throughout the spring, coming off an impressive last start second to Star Witness in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington.
Despite her gallant run being on much drier ground than the Heavy track conditions at Flemington today, Curtana’s experience still makes her our favourite to win the Gucci Stakes today.
Flemington – Race 4 – Gucci Stakes Tips
- Races.com.au Favourite: #6 Curtana – Rated Special to win at $3.70 through Luxbet
- Best Picks to Add into Exotics: #1 Chance Bye, #5 Celts and #2 Parriwi – Luxbet
To add more value to your wagers in the Gucci Stakes, we have selected three other runners to add into the exotic bets with the favourite.
Chance Bye is drawn ideally for this today. She is a top chance having placed fourth in the Champagne Stakes at Moonee Valley in September, seemingly recovered after pulling up lame after her well beaten defeat in the Golden Rose.
Peter Snowden’s Lonhro filly Celts also has plenty of talent and ability, coming off back-to-back wins this season including a big performance to beat home Buffering last start at Randwick.
Parriwi is also a must in the Trifecta, a smaller framed Mossman filly who ran an eye catching fifth in the Coolmore on Derby Day.
