A.V. Kewney Stakes 2013 Betting – Norzita Odds-On Favourite

Odds are now open for all the Newmarket Handicap Day races running at Flemington this Saturday including those for the three-year-old fillies’ feature, the 2013 A.V. Kewney Stakes, where Group 1 winning filly Norzita has opened in the red.

The Bart Cummings-trained daughter of Thorn Park hit the headlines in Sydney last spring when she scored an emphatic two and a half length victory in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at Randwick in October.

She made her Melbourne debut first-up last month under the lights at Moonee Valley and was impressive again scoring her third career win from seven starts in the Listed Typhoon Tracey Stakes (1200m).

Saturday sees her vie for another black type with her last start winning hoop Steven Arnold booked to ride her again this time in Flemington’s $220,000 Group 2 TAB Kewney Stakes (1400m).

Norzita was a big winner with the barriers drawing gate three of 13 and is dominating the latest Kewney Stakes odds at a current quote of $1.75, a price that could firm further before jump time on Saturday.

There are just two other hopefuls under $10 in the Kewney Stakes betting markets with:

  • #3 Meliora ($6.50) – Peter Moody’s talented Ad Valorem filly has gate 10 to overcome but caught the eye with her all-the-way win in the Group 2 Angus Armanaso Stakes over 1400m at Caulfield last time out
  • #2 Members Joy ($8.50) – Robert Smerdon-trained daughter of Hussonet has drawn one outside the favourite with barrier four and ace hoop Glen Boss to ride, Boss has been aboard for their three runs this time in including their second in the Armanaso which they will be looking to improve on here

Other hopefuls at more generous prices not without their claims then include Gerald Ryan’s Snitzel filly Flying Snitzel ($12) who will wear winkers here, the David Hayes-trained dual winner Red Fez ($13) coming off a third in the Armanasco Stakes, Cranbourne galloper Petite Diablesse who caught the eye at this track and distance when a very close third in the Group 3 The Vanity and then The Vanity winner Alzora ($17) who looks over the odds here.
