The 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes is an important support race on the Randwick Guineas Day Card and it is set to be a close contest if the markets are anything to go by.
Gai Waterhouse trained Kuchinskaya is the early $3.30 favourite for the 1200 metre sprint but not far away is Jade Marauder ($4.60) and a total of six horses are paying $10.00 or less.
The Group 3 $125,000 sprint gives a host of fillies a chance to press their claims ahead of next month’s time honoured two-year-old race, the Golden Slipper.
Saturday’s race favourite Kuchinskaya is one Slipper fancy and is currently being offered by Races.com.au preferred online bookmaker bookmaker.com.au at $26.00.
The highly promising two-year-old has one win and one place from three starts and is coming off victory in Thesydneycarnival.com.au Handicap at Rosehill last month.
Trained by Chris Waller, Jade Marauder has also been in good form with the Fastnet Rock filly coming second last start which was preceded by a win in the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale Plate in January.
Next best in the Sweet Embrace Stakes betting is Flying Snitzel ($6.00) who has one win from two outings and will be ridden by the experienced Craig Williams from barrier seven.
Silver Slipper Stakes third-place getter Kyria ($8.50) has been named to run from barrier six and trainer Grahame Begg will be hoping the potential can be further realised for the Golden Slipper hopeful.
Fresh off a victory in the Juniors Handicap, Dear Demi ($10.00) has more experience than most runners with four career starts to date and has drawn barrier two for Saturday.
The Gai Waterhouse trained Valerio won in her only start to date at Canterbury in the Vinery Stud Handicap and provides some value for the punters at $13.00.
Another notable chance for the 2012 Sweet Embrace Stakes is Agueda who has one victory from four starts and is yet to finish worse than third.
