The 2011 Surround Stakes will feature as one of the many Group races on Warwick Farm’s Chipping Norton Stakes Day this Saturday March 5, 2011, and the team here at Races.com.au have put together the exclusive 2011 Surround Stakes tips.
Worth $200,000, the Group 2 Surround Stakes has attracted nine of the country’s best three-year-old fillies, many of them on their way to the AJC Oaks on April 16, 2011.The 1400m Surround Stakes field includes Gai Waterhouse’s talented filly More Strawberries.
We are tipping More Strawberries to win the 2011 Surround Stakes after her impressive third placing in the Listed Triscay Stakes last start, despite being heavily weighted compared to her opponents.
More Strawberries, who began her career as a precocious two-year-old, has already won two Group 2 races, including the 2010 Furious Stakes and the 2010 Tea Rose Stakes.
We are confident this smart filly will have three Group 2 victories against her name after Saturday’s running of the 2011 Surround Stakes at Warwick Farm.
More Strawberries is currently paying odds of $2 to win at Luxbet.
Our tip for second in the 2011 Surround Stakes is Bart Cumming’s Kim Heaven, who will have her second ever start in Saturday’s race.
Kim Heaven won her debut by half a length at Canterbury on February 18, 2011, and has obviously earned the respect of her trainer in order to have been nominated amongst this classy field.
The Shamardal filly has drawn barrier one for the 2011 Surround Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Hugh Bowman.
Kim Heaven is presently paying very juicy odds of $21 to win the 2011 Surround Stakes at Luxbet.
Races.com.au likes the look of the ever-classy Parables, who is unbeaten over two runs at Warwick Farm.
Parables finished third in the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes last start behind stablemate Obsequious, and put in a brilliant run that saw her charge home from ten lengths behind to finish a little over two lengths from the winner.
The extra distance and the slightly better barrier (7) will benefit the Lonhro filly and we are confident that she will storm home for an exciting finish.
