Villiers Stakes 2012 – Preview and Tips

The exciting summer racing action continues this weekend and one of the feature events is the Group 2 2012 Villiers Stakes (1600m) which will take place at Warwick Farm on Saturday.

In an open betting market, the Darley-owned Galah is the current favourite at $5.50 with defending champion Monton the next best at $7.50.

The only other runner to fall under double figures is Matthew Smith-trained mare Cabernet ($8) with most of the full 18-horse field between $10 and $20 in the betting market.

Not sure who to back in this weekend’s Warwick Farm feature? Keep reading as the form analysts have been hard at work to bring to you our very best Villiers Stakes betting tips.

The Winner

#18 Holy Moly $14

Former New Zealand mare who faces a step up in class but has plenty in her favour. The John Sargent-trained four-year-old brings excellent form into the race, having won twice from her last three starts.

Has won at the distance before, is racing at her new home at Warwick Farm and gets in on the minimum with 53kg. All this combined with a favourable barrier three draw and top jockey Jim Cassidy aboard make Holy Moly a great chance at the value price of $14.

The Placings

#1 Monton $7.50 and #3 Kinnersley $13

Monton may be forced to carry the topweight of 59kg but the experienced gelding is no stranger to carrying weight and lugged the same impost in his strong runner-up finish in the Listed Festival Stakes last start.

Drawn well in barrier four and has been there done that. Big hope.

Kinnersley can be hit and miss but showed excellent signs last start when winning the Goulburn Cup over the Villiers distance of 1600m and has won twice over the trip.
