The Group 3 2013 Frances Tressady Stakes (1400m) stands as a key support race on the Australian Guineas program at Flemington on Saturday and as far as the betting is concerned it is an open affair.
Peter Moody’s Bellmaine Stakes winner There’s Only One ($3.50) is a slight favourite to continue her strong early season form but following closely is Sheila’s Star who has been backed in from $5 to $4.
Third favourite is Koonoomoo ($4.40) who is dropping back in grade after running seventh in the Futurity while Bonnie Mac ($7.50) and Jolie Blonde ($7.50) are also under double figures.
Others in the market include Peter Moody-trained mare Thy ($17) and Tavarnelle ($19) from the Team Hawkes stable.

#2 Koonoomoo $4.40
Rod Grantley’s five-year-old mare Koonoomoo looks well placed in mares company here.
Will appreciate a big drop back in class after running seventh to All Too Hard in the Futurity Stakes and drawn well in barrier three.
Showed her ability at stakes level during the spring when winning the Group 3 Herald Sun Stakes and can repeat the dose here.
#4 Jolie Blonde $7.50
With seven horses in the field no third dividend so just one place spot up for grabs.
Four-year-old Jolie Blonde is chasing a third consecutive win after breaking through at black-type level in the Listed Hareeba Stakes last start.
With four wins from just eight starts the Mark Riley-trained mare appears to be on an upward spiral and can make the next step here.
