Tonight’s Fillies Classic 2012 will open the Group racing action of William Reid Stakes Night at Moonee Valley, the updated odds and Races.com.au insider tips for which are listed below to help our readers back the winning filly.
Set to run as Race 5 at 8:45pm, the $200,000 Group 2 Moonee Valley Fillies Classic (1600m) field is down to just eight hopeful three-year-olds following the scratchings of #3 Assertive Eagle and #9 Princess Rock.
Following the early withdrawals, Bart Cumming’s last-start Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) winner Empress Rock has firmed into $2.90 in the Fillies Classic odds at bookmaker.com.au.
She is followed closely by Michael Kent’s up-and-coming Darci Brahma filly Our Miss Jones at $3.50.
So what does the Races.com.au team think, will one of these two salute for the punters or will a longer-priced hopefuls score an upset?
Moonee Valley Race 5 Tips – Fillies Classic Betting
Races.com.au Tip to Win:
- #4 Total Attraction ($5.00 bookmaker.com.au)
Drawn in gate six (into five) Total Attraction just might have the edge over the widely-drawn Empress Rock in this.
Out to hand Peter Moody with back-to-back wins following the success of Lights Of Heaven in this 12 months ago, Total Attraction as undefeated in her three opening career starts before she met Empress Rock in the Kewney.
In the big field over 1400m in her maiden black-type Total Attraction was a little star struck, but she will have come on from then and she goes back up to the mile which she won over at Flemington two starts back.
Best Place Bets:
- #1 Empress Rock and #8 Our Miss Jones – Bet now at bookmaker.com.au
Two top fillies in the markets are there for a reason and they could both upset with a bit of luck, don’t ignore either of them in your place and exotic bets at bookmaker.com.au.
Roughie to Try:
- #11 Outdoor ($17 bookmaker.com.au)
It’s a tight field with every hope at $21 or under, so there could be some value in a roughie bet.
Outdoor is nicely bred being a daughter of Redoute’s Choice out of dual Group 1 winner Serenade Rose (2006 Arrowfield Stakes – AJC Oaks), and has the potential to develop into a nice little stayer.
Ran well over 1523m at the Valley last start so having seen the track and going up to the mile will suit.
Fancy our Fillies Classic upset tip? Or sticking with the favourites tonight? It doesn’t matter what your tip is so long as you get the best possible price and cover all bases by throwing on an exotic or two!
