Strong 2013 Euclase Stakes Field – Adelaide Cup Day

An exciting field of local and travelling three-year-olds will contest the Group 2 2013 Euclase Stakes (1200m) which stands as the key support race on Adelaide Cup day.

Thirteen horses have been named in the final field for the race otherwise known as the 2013 Centrebet Classic including local filly Maybe Discreet.

The Phillip Stokes-trained filly won the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes at the Melbourne Spring Carnival and also took out the Morphetville Guineas in September.

Other strong local hopes include Stella Lante and Molt Bene.

Stella Lante was fifth in the Thousand Guineas and was runner-up in the Group 2 Fillies Classic during the spring while Molto Bene was an eye-catching third in the Thousand Guineas Prelude.

Flemington-based filly Lady Of Harrods will travel west for the race after a spring campaign where she won the Group 3 Thousand Guineas Prelude and the Group 3 McNeil Stakes.

Fellow Melbourne filly Shamal Wind will also line up after trainer Robert Smerdon chose to bypass the Newmarket Handicap.

The Daughter of Dubawi won the first three starts of her career before struggling when 12th in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate.

In a race seemingly dominated by females, Darley colt Rusambo represents one of the best male chances.

But the son of Elusive Quality will have to bounce back from a seventh-place finish in the Royal Sovereign Stakes.

In the spring Rusambo was a stakes winner at Moonee Valley and finished third to Snitzerland in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes.

Peter Moody’s colt Office Bearer steps up in grade but has shown promise with three wins and a runner-up finish from four starts.

A huge weekend of racing at Flemington and the best place to back a winner is!
