Sheraco Stakes 2012 – Betting Update and Tips

The 2012 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) is highly anticipated reason and for one reason. More Joyous.

More Joyous

More Joyous should be far too good in Saturday's Sheraco Stakes

The glamour mare, who has won 19 of 26 starts including eight at Group 1 level, makes her return this weekend on her road to the Cox Plate.

Trained by Gai Waterhouse, More Joyous has not been seen since winning a Group 1 treble in the autumn and she returns as a short-priced favourite this weekend.

She is reportedly training better than ever and she is being offered at almost “Black Caviar odds” at $1.18 at

No other horse is under double figures with Australian Oaks winner Streama and last-start winner Emotional Circus the next best at $13.00.

Other runners in the fillies and mares feature include Group 1 placegetter Gai’s Choice ($16.00) and talented mare Colorado Claire ($21.00).

The Winner

#1 More Joyous $1.18

We won’t be winning any tipping prizes here but the superstar mare simply looks unbeatable. Her record speaks for itself and it should be simply a barrier trial tomorrow as she heads towards much bigger things.

The Placings

#5 Gai’s Choice $16.00 and #3 Colorado Claire $21.00

Both these mares are being aimed at the Group 1 Myer Classic in November and both have the talent to get there.

Gai’s Choice, trained by the ever-improving David Pfieffer, comes off terrific winter form where she won three straight before running third to Pear Tart in the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara.

Colorado Claire impressed as a three-year-old to win five of eight starts including beating the boys in the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes.

There is no reason why she can’t build on that as a four-year-old and is drawn nicely in barrier six with James McDonald aboard.
