2011 Millie Fox Stakes Field Brimming With Talent

There were 21 nominations for the 2011 Millie Fox stakes and now the final field of 12 is set with four emergencies on hand.

The Group 3 fillies and mares handicap worth $125,000 is run over 1300m and scheduled to be the final race at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday.

Sacred Choice

Sacred Choice has been slugged with a massive top weight of 60.5kgs for the 2011 Millie Fox Stakes

Sacred Choice, who finished third in the Epsom and won the Myer Classic last year, has been slugged with a massive top weight of 60.5kgs despite her disappointing first up sixth in the Breeders Classic last start.

In that same race Graceful Anna ran a brilliant second to the rampaging More Joyous but has escaped with a substantial 5 kilograms less than Sacred Choice.

It gets worse for the Joseph Pride trained mare which drew barrier 13, Graceful Anna slightly better in nine.

Of the other big names Strawberry Field will try and finally put together a complete performance carrying 54.5kgs out of barrier seven.

Gai Waterhouse trained champion Montana Flyer will be attempting to re-capture the good form of past years from a handy barrier six with just 53.5kgs aboard.

Representing Les Bridge is Jersey Lily which struggled to a lacklustre eight first up last start, the first time she’s finished lower than fourth since mid 2009. Her chances are boosted in this race by drawing barrier four and carrying equal bottom weight of 53kgs.

Grahame Begg had two of his three nominations accepted but top hope Palacio De Cristal had an atrocious barrier draw and will start from 16. That’s in addition to a 58kg weight, not an ideal set of conditions for a horse hoping to repeat last preparations first up Group win on her way to the 2011 Coolmore Classic.

The stables other runner Purrpurrlena did do better though and will carry just 53kgs from gate two.

It will certainly be interesting to see how this will affect betting markets in the coming days. To stay on top of the action join Luxbet today where full form guides and odds will be posted very soon. They also have Australia’s best sign up bonuses offering up to $400 completely free!
