Stocks Stakes 2012 – Tipping Guide

Moonee Valley Racecourse plays host to an action-packed card this weekend and one of the most exciting races on the card is the Group 2 2012 Stocks Stakes (1600m).

A strong 12-horse field of fillies and mares will line up to contest the $220,000 event with an open betting market currently headed by Spirit Song ($3.80) who is slightly ahead of Chateau Margaux ($4.40).

Other horses in the market include Midnight Martini ($5.00), Avienus ($8.00), Never Forget ($9.00) Oasis Bloom ($13.00), Bliss Street ($14.00), Booklet ($19.00) and My Chicharita ($31.00).

Unsure who to back in this open fillies and mares affair? Keep reading as the team fancy an outsider who might just sneak away with the Stocks Stakes chocolates.

The Winner

#9 My Chicharita $31.00

This long-shot chance struggled last start but has form around recent Melbourne winner Zurella in New Zealand and should improve here.

In a positive move the blinkers go back on the Group 2 winner who will be ridden by Damien Oliver from barrier six.

The Placings

#2 Spirit Song $3.80 and #11 Oasis Bloom $13.00

The Aaron Purcell-trained Spirit Song was ultra consistent last preparation and will have improved for the first-up fifth.

She has a class edge on many in this field having won at Group 3 and Group 2 level before.

Oasis Bloom has been earmarked by trainer Peter Morgan as a potential 2013 Cups contender and will appreciate the extra distance after missing a place over shorter trips in two previous starts.
