McNeil Stakes 2012 Form Guide & Race Tips

The 2012 McNeil Stakes is set to run at Caulfield this Saturday as one of two Group race features on Memsie Stakes Day, and to help our readers clean up in this early Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival showdown below we have our insider McNeil Stakes form guide analysis and betting tips.

Elite Elle

Elite Elle looks hard to beat in the 2012 McNeil Stakes in Melbourne this weekend

Due to jump as Caulfield Race 4 at 2:15pm the $150,000 Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes (1200m) this year attracted 12 three-year-olds, the hot favourite of which is Elite Elle.

Unbeaten in her four starts to date, which includes the Listed Quezette Stakes win last time out, the Tony Vasil-trained Shamardal filly has been well supported in the McNeil Stakes odds at bookmaker.com.au firming in from $3 to $2.40 in the past 24 hours.

Her biggest dangers of not retaining her undefeated status come Saturday afternoon according to the McNeil Stakes markets are the Gai Waterhouse-trained TJ Smith runner-up Kabayan ($4.80) and Gerald Ryan’s untapped Snitzel colt Amorino ($8) who are now the only other single-figure chances in the race.

This is what the betting says but what about the form?

Having comprehensively studied the field and form below we provide the must know McNeil Stakes form guide stats and betting facts, as well as our trifecta tip for the spring feature so you can clean out the bookies this weekend.
