2011 Emirates Stakes Betting & Odds Wide Open

The marquee race at Flemington this Saturday is the Emirates Stakes 2011, the famous mile showdown shaping up as a wide open affair with five gallopers installed at single-figures to win.

Jimmy Choux

Jimmy Choux is the narrow 2011 Emirates Stakes favourite for Saturday

A capacity field of 16 starters plus four emergencies are engaged for the $1 million Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) this year, which runs as Flemington Race 6 at 3:00pm (AEDT) on Saturday.

Currently sitting at the top of the Emirates Stakes odds at Luxbet is in-form New Zealander Jimmy Choux, the multiple Group 1 hero paying $5.50.

Jimmy Choux has been in terrific form this season racing in three elite levels back home, winning two of the three, before their game second to Pinker Pinker in the Cox Plate last start.

With winning form over the mile and suited to any track conditions from a Heavy (10) to Good (3), Jimmy Choux is the definite form horse to back.

Considered their biggest danger is another runner hailing from New Zealand, the now Peter Moody-trained King’s Rose who pays $6 through Luxbet to become this year’s Emirates Stakes winner.

King’s Rose is another horse exceptionally suited to the mile.

While her last-start seventh in the Cox Plate was not as good as Jimmy Choux’s effort, back to the 1600 metres this Redoute’s Choice four-year-old should also be back to her best.

Jumps one inside the favourite from barrier 12 with Luke Nolen engaged for the ride, and meets Jimmy Choux 5kg better in the weights with King’s Rose on 53kg, her lightest allocation from four starts in Australia.

Three other runners are under double-figures in the Luxbet Emirates Stakes markets with Secret Admirer ($6.50), last-start Caulfield Cup Day winner Love Conquers All ($8.50) and Testa My Patience ($9.50) who comes off a win in the Crystal Mile on Cox Plate Day.

Dubwai mare Secret Admirer is another galloper coming via the Cox Plate, Grahame Begg’s consistent four-year-old having finished just under two lengths from the winner when fifth.

Prior to the Cox Plate Secret Admirer scored a nice win over Cox Plate winner Pinker Pinker in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap over the Randwick mile, and she could be the upset horse to get behind for the Emirates this weekend.

“We were delighted with her run in that (the Cox Plate),” Begg said.

“She seemed to come through very well, so well that we thought let’s target the Emirates.

Secret Admirer faces a tough test with 54kg on Saturday, the heaviest weighted of the mares.

She is prepared by the right trainer, however, to achieve Emirates Stakes success as the last horse to carry more than 51.5kg since Wenona Girl carted an incredible 58.5kg to victory back in 1963 was Begg’s 1999 Emirates Stakes winner Bonanova with 54.5kg.

Begg also enjoyed an Emirates Stakes victory three years ago with All Silent in 2008.

Other notable 2011 Emirates Stakes contenders and their prices include defending hero Wall Street ($12) who needs a bit of give in the ground to be at their best and Rob Heathcote’s Derby Day winner Woorim ($12) who will also be unsuited should Flemington be too firm on Saturday.

See below for the latest Emirates Stakes fixed win odds that punters can lock in now at Luxbet.
