SA Fillies Classic 2012 – Odds and Tips

While all the hype at Morphetville this Saturday will be about wonder mare Black Caviar in the 2012 Goodwood, there is plenty of other quality racing on the eight-event card including the Group 3 2012 SA Fillies Classic (2500m).

Fifteen horses will line up to contest $115,000 three-year-old fillies event, with New Zealand horse Crimson Lady the current favourite at $3.75.

The Michael Moroney-trained filly is coming off a sixth-place finish in the Group 1 Australasian Oaks and is followed closely in the betting by Quick Retort ($4.50) and the Robert Smerdon trained Red Typhoon ($4.60).

Princess Rock ($9.00) is the only other horse to come under $10.00 but to taste success on Saturday will have to turn around some horror form that has seen her finish back-field in her last two starts.

No other horse comes close to single figures, with Zabeel filly Crystalised joining the Michael Kent-trained Gioe next back at $18.00.

Not sure who to back in this Goodwood support race on Saturday? Keeping reading below as the think tank have put together our best tips for where to put your punting money this weekend.

Whether you agree with our selections or not, visit to bet with great value odds this weekend and be rewarded with a $300 bonus bet.

The Winner

#7 Quick Retort ($4.50)

This lightly raced filly may not have recorded victory yet but she has been building nicely and has placed four times from five starts since debuting in February.

Trained by Stephen Theodore, the daughter of Elvstroem produced a strong showing when stepping up to 2000 metres last start, finishing fifth in the Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes.

She faces another step up to 2500 metres this Saturday but has shown the makings of a promising stayer and should have enough talent to finish at the front of the inexperienced field.

The Placings

#5 Crimson Lady ($3.50) and #4 Princess Rock ($9.00)

New Zealand filly Crimson Lady has shown plenty of promise and while she finished sixth in the Australasian Oaks (2000m) last start, she was only 2.5 lengths behind when the leader passed the post.

Her two starts before that showed her potential, winning a Handicap race at Ballarat and then finishing third in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Stakes.

Princess Rock struggled last start in the Australasian Oaks but she has the chance to bounce back here in a lesser quality field.

The Rock Of Gibraltar filly has one win from eight starts as well as three place finishes and has a favourable barrier four draw for her first hit-out at 2500 metres.

The Roughie

#7 Crystalised ($18.00)

This Anthony Freedman-trained filly may have finished 15th in her last start in the Chairman’s Stakes but if she can rediscover the form she had prior to that effort she is great value at $18.00.

From five previous starts the daughter of Zabeel recorded one victory and placed on another three occasions.
