2013 Moet & Chandon Stakes Tips & Selections

This weekend punters will be privy to the latest 2013 Golden Slipper lead-ups including the fillies facing off in the Moet & Chandon Stakes 2013, the Races.com.au crew’s betting tips for which are detailed below.

Villa Verde

Running as the second on the Rosehill Gardens program at 12:50pm this year’s $300,000 Group 2 Moet & Chandon Stakes (1200m), formerly registered as the Reisling Stakes, features just six hopefuls.

Among those six however are the top two fancies in the latest bookmaker.com.au markets for the world’s richest two-year-olds race – the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) back at Rosehill on April 6.

Current Golden Slipper odds are led by Gai Waterhouse’s Widden Stakes winner Overreach ($3.90) who is also dominating the Moet & Chandon Stakes betting markets at an odds-on quote of $1.55.

Following Overreach in both the Slipper markets ($5.50) and Saturday’s odds ($2.60) is then the undefeated Villa Verde who beat Overreach home in the Inglis Debutants Stakes last October before a three length win in a Melbourne Cup Day black type at her last start.

These are the only two rated any kind of chance on the weekend with the other four fillies in the Moet & Chandon Stakes field at $19 and over to score an upset.

Waterhouse is confident she’s got the Golden Slipper winner racing on Saturday spruiking the chances of Overreach for her first run since the six length Widden triumph.

“She has done everything right since her first-up win, I couldn’t be happier with her,” Waterhouse said.

“Villa Verde is certainly a very good filly, and it will be a great clash.”

So are we sticking with the order of the odds? Or is there a boil-over brewing?

To Win

#1 Villa Verde ($2.60)

  • They haven’t seen this track, or Sydney at all, but think trainer Shaun Dwyer will have been giving them plenty of work this way of going
  • Only raced over 1000m before but think they can handle the step up
  • Got the better of Overreach on debut and can do it again with a bit of luck
  • Overcame gate 13 of 14 to win at Flemington last time out and will appreciate the diminutive field here
  • Doesn’t have the fitness edge but proved they can run well fresh in their debut
  • Value pick of the day

To Place

#2 Overreach ($1.55)

  • No denying their class but can they repeat their Widden effort against Villa Verde?
  • Beaten by her on debut at Caulfield
  • Winner by six lengths at this track over 1100m last month with Berry in the saddle
  • Hasn’t put a foot wrong since according to trainer
  • Gets the Sydney and fitness advantage, many will think that’s enough

#3 Diva Dee ($34)

  • Awesome value against a different field but not in the same class as the top two fancies
  • Gets the rails run from barrier one
  • Blinkers go on which will sharpen them up
  • Come off a good third to Montsegur in the Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m) so can handle the distance
  • Also two good runs last spring when second to Crack A Roadie on debut at Moonee Valley and fourth in the Group 3 HKJC Maribyrnong Plate at Flemington
