Emancipation Stakes 2012 – Odds and Tips

A huge day of racing is set to take place at Royal Randwick this Saturday and one of the key support events to the Group 1 features is the Group 2 2012 Emancipation Stakes (1600m).


Fibrilliation is the Races.com.au pick to win the Emancipation Stakes

This is probably the most open race of the entire day, with the top seven horses all ranging from $5.00 to $9.00 in the bookmaker.com.au market.

New Zealand mare Miss Keepsake is the slight favourite at $5.00 after running second to More Joyous in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes.

She is closely followed by Guy Walter-trained six-year-old Skyerush ($6.00) who recovered from a last-place finish in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes to run third at Randwick last weekend.

Also at the top end of the betting market are Ron Quinton mare Crafty Irna ($7.50), Epona Stakes winner Fibrillation ($8.00), Shannara ($8.00), Foxstar ($8.50) and Divorces ($9.00).

The market tells the story, this is going to be tightly contested race but don’t worry, the Races.com.au think tank have been studying the form and are here to bring you our exclusive race tips.

The Winner

#3 Fibrillation ($8.00)

The Tim Martin-trained mare has been particularly impressive this preparation.

She won the Aspiration Quality first-up on a slow track at Randwick and then showed she can produce in all conditions when delivering a dominant one-length victory over Crafty Irna in the Group 3 Epona Stakes.

Brenton Advulla was the rider for both of her wins and he will again be on board when the four-year-old chases a third consecutive victory from barrier three tomorrow.

The Placings

#1 Miss Keepsake and #5 Crafty Irna 

Miss Keepsake comes into the race with form on the board and should challenge for victory tomorrow.

She began her autumn campaign with dominant victory at Kembla Grange in late March and again impressed last start when running second to More Joyous in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes.

Crafty Irna produced a strong run to finish second to Fibrillation in the Epona Stakes but she seemed to lack the finishing ability of the winner and we can’t see her toppling her tomorrow.

Regardless, the Starcraft mare has been in solid form in 2012 so should be towards the front end of the field come business time tomorrow after producing two runner-ups and a fourth-place finish from three starts.

The Roughie

#2 Mirjulisa Lass bookmaker.com.au

There is no denying the fact that the

But the four-year-old is a Group 1 winner and if she can somehow return to the sort of form that saw her win the 2011 Vinery Stud Stakes it is likely she will be too good for her opponents who are yet to taste elite level success.
