This weekend’s Melbourne feature is the Group 2 2012 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield and it promises to be an exciting affair.
Currently topping the bookmaker.com.au market for the $220,000 event is 2011 Stradbroke Handicap winner Sincero ($4.20) who holds slight favouritism ahead of Perth star Luckygray ($4.40).
Sincero will be having his first race since a solid autumn campaign where he finished fifth in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes and fourth in the Doncaster Mile.
The Wyong-based horse is a dual Group 1 winner having also won the Group 1 George Main Stakes at Rosehill last spring.
Gino Poletti will be hoping for a dryer track with Luckygray in his second Melbourne start after he finished fourth to Second Effort on a heavy surface in the PB Lawrence Stakes.
The son of Bradbury’s Luck took out the Group 1 Railways Stakes in Perth during the summer and boasts a quality resume of 10 wins from 14 starts.
Not far behind the the leading pair in the Memsie Stakes market is Cox Plate placegetter Rekindled Interest ($6.50) who will again be targeted at Australia’s most prestigious weight-for-age race.
Other runners starting at under double figure odds are Caulfield Cup runner-up Green Moon ($8.00) and Mick Price’s dual Group winner Heart Of Dreams ($9.00).
Offering value for the punters is last-start winner Happy Trails ($14.00) who is being aimed at the 2012 Cox Plate.
The Adelaide-based gelding was last seen running on August 11 when he beat Gossip Girl and Southern Speed to win the Group 3 Spring Stakes at Morphetville.
Other horses in the market are PB Lawrence winner Second Effort ($12.00), Peter Moody-trained import Voila Ici ($26.00) and Sydney Cup winner Niwot ($101.00).
