2013 Moet & Chandon Stakes Field Led By Golden Slipper Fancies

This Saturday at Rosehill Gardens a field full of top fancies for the upcoming $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) will face off in one of the traditional lead-up races to the world’s richest juvenile’s feature, the Moet & Chandon Stakes 2013.

Formerly registered as both the Reisling Stakes and the Reisling Slipper Trial, the $300,000 Group 2 Moet & Chandon Stakes (1200m) is for fillies only and runs alongside the colts and geldings equivalent – the $300,000 Group 2 Spotless Todman Stakes (1200m).

This year the Moet & Chandon Stakes field has attracted just six hopefuls with the top two favourites for the 2013 Golden Slipper back at the track on April 6 scaring off the bulk of the contenders.

Current Golden Slipper betting odds are led by the Gai Waterhouse-trained Overreach at a quote of $3.90 who burst into calculations for the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival classic with her six length Widen Stakes success at Rosehill back on February 16.

She races for the first time since that black type victory over 1100m on the weekend with Tommy Berry retaining the ride, Overreach due to jump from gate five.

Second pick in the Golden Slipper markets at $5.50 is then Shaun Dwyer’s Not a Single Doubt filly Villa Verde from Bendigo who vies for her third successive career win.

She debuted with a win over Overreach in the Inglis Debutants Stakes last October before her easy three length success in a 1000m sprint at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day when overcoming barrier 13 of 14.

Villa Verde’s true Golden Slipper credentials go on the line in the Moet & Chandon Stakes as she sees the 1200m and a Sydney track for the first time, also going in fresh giving the fitness edge away to some of the outsiders here.

The rest of the fillies in the mix are either not currently nominated for, or are at triple figures to win, the Golden Slipper Stakes.

Anthony CummingsDiva Dee on the rails has had three previous runs, the daughter of Encosta De Lago’s most recent effort being a brave first-up third behind Montsegur in the Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m) on March 9 where she also jumped from barrier one.

Husson filly Go Again and the John Thompson-trained Spurrendous then come off wins on debut while Cyrenia rounds out the field.
