This Saturday the bumper nine-race CF Orr Stakes Day program is set to come to a close with the 2012 Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes, the mares-only clash attracting a final field of 13.
Due to jump at 5:50pm, the $125,000 Group 3 Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) has in the past been won by some classy horses including Peter Snowden’s subsequent Group 1 winning Lonhro mare Beaded.
In the Luxbet markets for this year’s edition of the Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes another daughter of Lonhro is currently installed as the favourite, five-year-old Miss Octopussy.
Tom Hughes’ consistent mare was last seen finishing an eye-catching fourth to Canali when she went up against open company in the Victoria Cup (1100m) at Caulfield on December 3.
Fresh and getting back to her own kind on Saturday, Miss Octopussy is the $4.20 top elect and firming through Luxbet.
Five other horses are at single-figures in the Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes odds at Luxbet including $6.50 second elect Biancon Rose.
Jumping from barrier two with Dwayne Dunn engaged, the Bianconi four-year-old resumed with a close first-up fifth to avionics over the same track and distance and is tipped for improvement.
Other notable chances include Let’s Be Happy ($9 Luxbet) who will have to overcome their horror barrier 12 draw if they are to win their sixth from seven starts since October, Matthew Smith’s last-start Canterbury winner Slow The Flow ($9.50 Luxbet) drawn ideally in barrier four and Star Of Giselle ($9 Luxbet) from the stables of Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra.
Longer-priced hopefuls that could prove good value bets to finish up your day on the punt include spring revolution Hi Belle ($10 Luxbet) last seen winning a Listed feature at Sandown in November, the Tony Vasil-trained Psychologist ($17 Luxbet) and Mornington mare Koonoomoo ($13 Luxbet) coming off back-to-back wins over 1200m at Moonee Valley.
