The Vanity 2013 – Betting Preview and Tips

The Vanity 2013 (1400m) takes place this Saturday at Flemington as one of the key support races to the Group 1 2013 Black Caviar Lightning.

AS far as the market is concerned it appears to be an open affair, with six of the 14 runners falling under double figures.

Spending is a $4.60 favourite but not far away are market mover You’re So Good ($5.50), last-start third Are There Any ($7) and Darley-owned Group 2 winner Kazanluk ($7.50).

In a field of lightly-raced horses, others to feature in the market include Peter Moody-trained filly Royal Scandal ($8) and Petite Diablesse ($9.50) who is chasing a third consecutive victory.

Don’t know a lot about this field? Need some help deciding your selections? Then keep reading as the team have been hard at work to bring your very best 2013 The Vanity betting tips.

The Winner

#8 You’re So Good $5.50

A lightly-raced filly from the Flemington stable of Nigel Blackiston. Facing a step up in class but showed in her first two starts that she is ready to make that step.

Won on debut at Moonee Valley in December before running a narrow second at Sandown on February 6.

Both performances over 1200m indicated that a little extra distance should suit and Glen Boss should be able to guide her into a decent spot from barrier eight.

The Placings

#1 Kazanluk $7.50 and #5 Royal Scandal $8.00

Kazanluk is one of the most experienced runners in the field and certainly signalled plenty of potential during the spring. Might need a little further but her win in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Fillies’ Classic shows she is more than up to class.

Also finished third in the Listed Myer Spring Fashion Stakes in November.

With Black Caviar running, the Moody-Nolen combination will be a prominent factor on Saturday and Royal Scandal is a promising filly.

Ran fourth on city debut at Caulfield on February 2 after previously scoring consecutive wins at Pakenham and Ballarat.

Drawn the inside so should get a cushy run along the rails under the guidance of Nolen.
