Surround Stakes 2013 Tips

All the talk is about Melbourne this week but there is still a quality day of racing in Sydney at Warwick Farm and one of the key races on the program is the Group 2 2013 Surround Stakes (1400m).

An exciting group of three-year-old fillies will contest the $175,000 event and Bennetta is currently a clear favourite at $2.40.

Crown Oaks winner Dear Demi ($6) will be out to turn the tables after running third in the Light Fingers Stakes while Driefontein follows closely at $6.50.

Only one other runner falls under double figures with Darley filly Meidung ($8.50) due to kick off her autumn campaign.

Plenty of decent horses at bigger odds including Brave Soul ($13), Royal Descent ($14), and Longport ($18).

For some help with your Surround Stakes selections, keep reading for the expert views from the team.
