2013 Quezette Stakes Tips

There’s a top class line-up of Group racing taking place at Melbourne’s Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday for PB Lawrence Stakes Day, one of which is the Quezette Stakes 2013 for the three-year-old fillies.

With big Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival majors like the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) on October 16 fast approaching, the new season campaigns are beginning.

For the young fillies heading towards races like the Thousand Guineas Saturday’s $135,000 Group 3 Lister Quezette Stakes (1100m) is an ideal starting point.

In fact, of the 12 hopefuls still in contention following the early scratching of #1 Scandiva, seven are racing first-up.

Race favourite at $4.20 is one of the those with a run already behind them this time in, the Peter Moody-trained Spirit Of Heaven.

The Savabeel filly debuted at Sandown in June in the mud and enjoyed a tidy win but she’s got to back it up on a firmer track against tougher rivals here.

Other notable hopes under double figures in the Quezette Stakes betting markets then include the Peter Snowden-trained stakes performing duo of Metastasio ($5) and Montsegur ($6.50), and Moody’s other runner Kiss A Rose ($6.50) who is also undefeated having won at Caulfield in December in their only run to date.

So are these the fillies you should be getting behind for the win?

Or is it worth a look further down the markets at someone like the Gai Waterhouse-trained Blue Diamond Preview placegetter Swing Vote ($10) or even Bel Esprit filly Zellindi ($16) for an upset Quezette Stakes result?


#3 Metastasio ($5)

Tipping Snowden’s Street Cry filly for this to become a dual stakes winner. Won their opening two back in the summer including a three length effort in the Listed Chairman’s Stakes at this track and distance beating home an open field. They could only manage eighth in the blue Diamond Stakes from a wide draw before being turned out. Resumed on August 3 at Moonee Valley, a notoriously tight circuit, for a second behind Thousand Guineas-bound Gregers. There was four and a half lengths between them but Metastasio had 60kg and will relish drop back to the 56.5kg for this and the extra 1000m.


#2 Montsegur ($6.50)

Sticking with Snowden’s runners here and think he’ll take out the quinella with Montsegur to get a lovely run behind their Craig Williams-ridden stablemate. This daughter of New Approach has Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle replacing Williams who rode them to victory in the Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m) at Flemington in March. That came after a Blue Diamond sixth and showed their class. Group 3 placed over the 1100m at Caulfield before that but just not sure they’re fit to first-up after running seventh in only trial over 738m back in July. Still should be a good run they’ll improve off.


#8 Spirit Of Heaven ($4.20)

Moody’s got two top chances in the race but he’s put his best jockey Luke Nolen on this one so we’ll stick with them. Favourite based on their debut win at Sandown in the wet, need to handle the firmer track here but bookies don’t think that will be an issue. Carried 57kg last start so drop back to 55kg will suit and have a gun drawn in two over the 1100m.
