The feature race on the eight-event Randwick card this Saturday February 12 is the $200,000 Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) and below the Races.com.au team take a look at the latest betting odds on the fillies feature and provide our exclusive Light Fingers Stakes Tips.
The 2011 Light Fingers Stakes field now features 10 runners following the early scratching of #1 Secret Admirer.
Favourite to win Randwick Race 6 at 4:10pm (AEDST) tomorrow is #6 Red Tracer paying $3 through Luxbet having been backed in from her opening quote of $3.30.
The Chris Waller-trained Dane Shadow filly has drawn well with barrier three for tomorrow and is due to be ridden by Glyn Schofield.
A lightly-raced contender having had just five starts, Red Tracer’s record is impressive with three wins and two thirds.
She is unbeaten at the Light Fingers Stakes’ distance having won both of her starts over 1200m including her impressive two length success in the Bosco Bulldogs Handicap at Randwick on January 29.
However, this is her first stakes assignment and we feel that the class and experience of second-favourite More Strawberries make her a better pick to win the Light Fingers tomorrow.
2011 Light Fingers Stakes Tips – Randwick Race 6
- Races.com.au Favourite: #2 More Strawberries – Rated Special to Win – Bet now at Luxbet
- Best Place / Exotic Bets: #6 Red Tracer, #3 Parables and #4 Obsequious
Currently paying $3.40 through Luxbet in the Light Fingers Stakes odd, the Gai Waterhouse-trained More Strawberries is a consistent More Than Ready three-year-old with plenty of experience at Group level.
A winner of back-to-back Group 2 races in the spring, More Strawberries went on to run a game second behind Secret Admirer in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) beaten by less than half a length.
At her last start More Strawberries was sixth in the Thousand Guineas, which was her debut Melbourne run and she will have come on from then.
She also showed great form for this with two winning jumpouts at Randwick during January so even if she shortens in the market, More Strawberries still represents great value.
Red Tracer is up-and-coming and will run second.
For third and fourth we are tipping the Peter Snowden-trained stablemates Parables and Obsequious.
Parables is out wide tomorrow, the only reason we don’t fancy her for the top two, the Flight Stakes third-placegetter also well trialled at Randwick and at Group level.
Obsequious has the inside alley bringing her into contention.
