Lady Melksham

Lady Melksham has opened favourite to win the 2012 Let's Elope Stakes this weekend

A winner of four of her five career starts to date, the Artie Schiller four-year-old thrived on a Heavy (10) track at Caulfield first-up on August 18 and was able to defeat a smart field of fellow mares in the Group 3 WW Cockram Stakes (1200m).

Jockey Glen Boss, who retains the ride for her next assignment in Saturday’s $220,000 Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m), was full of praise post-win and tipped her for improvement on firmer ground.

She will get that on the weekend when she faces a similar field of 11 rivals in the 2012 Let’s Elope Stakes field, Lady Melksham the clear $3.20 favourite in the markets despite having drawn the far outside barrier 12.

There are just two other hopefuls under double figures in the Let’s Elope Stakes betting markets with the Shaune Ritchie-trained NZ Oaks runner-up Zurella ($5.50) who is a genuine spring cups hopeful, and Peter Moody’s daughter of Nadeem Total Attraction ($7.50) who runs third-up for the season drawn in barriers four and two respectively.

There are then a number of longer priced chances that have claims for an upset including Zurella’s NZ Oaks winning stablemate Miss Artistic ($10), Mornington mare Biancon Rose ($11) who jumps one inside of the favourite, Group 3 winner Hi Belle ($12) and progressive local hopeful Twilighting ($13).
