2012 Sunline Stakes Tips & Predictions

A top-class field of mares will face off in Moonee Valley Race 7 tonight and to help you clean out the bookies the Races.com.au crew has published our Sunline Stakes 2012 betting tips and predictions below.


Zubbaya is the Races.com.au team's roughie pick to add into your 2012 Sunline Stakes exotics tonight

The first of three Group race features on the William Reid Stakes Night program this evening, the $200,000 Group 2 Sunline Stakes (1600m) is set to jump at 9:45pm.

Early scratchings of #2 Marveen and #10 Impulsive Dream have left a 10-horse Sunline Stakes field, the favourite of which are the Peter Snowden-trained Raspberries and John Gunning’s Hi Belle paying $4.60 each.

It is a wide-open Sunline Stakes betting market with all the hopefuls paying $15 and under aside from the $81 outsider Maquina.

Value picks that have a genuine chance to upset include Schweppervescence Trophy winner Spirit Song ($8.50), last-start Echuca Cup champ Zubbaya ($9) and last year’s runner-up Lady Lynette ($7.50).

So will one of the favourites get the job done tonight or will bookmaker.com.au be paying out those that shied away from the top two?

The Races.com.au expert tipsters have done the Sunline Stakes form and made their insider tips public knowledge below.

Moonee Valley Race 7 Betting – Sunline Stakes Tips

Races.com.au Tip to Win:

In our eyes Raspberries should be the sole favourite and not share her top spot in the Sunline Stakes odds.

Showed her class with a first-up win by an easy two and a half lengths in the Group 3 PFD Food Services Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on March 3 and she has form both over the mile and at Moonee Valley.

Knows how to win too with the best winning strike rate (40.00%) in this field.

Good barrier doesn’t hurt either.

Best Place Bets:

Plenty to like about Spirit Of Song, but her wide draw rules her out of first place for us. Still, she held on to take out the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy (1600m) last start, and was a four length winner at the track and distance in December from a worse gate.

Lady Lynette is well-tried over this track and distance winning two of her six attempts and running second or third in another three, wasn’t too far off them in the Schweppervescence either.

Roughie To Try:

Anthony Freedman’s four-year-old took out the Echuca Cup (1400m) first-up and while she doesn’t have the same class as these, she won by four in a black-type over this track and distance back in October 2010 and if she can return to form can be there in the finish.
