2013 GH Mumm Stakes Field & Odds – Crown Oaks Day

The major support race on Crown Oaks Day at Flemington this Thursday will be the GH Mumm Stakes 2013 where a full field of mares is set to face off.

One of only two Group races on the program, this year’s $200,000 Group 3 G.H. Mumm Stakes (1100m) is set to run at 2:20pm (AST) as Crown Oaks Day Race 4.

Originally there were 20 final acceptors for the capacity 16 starter GH Mumm Stakes field.

An early scratching from #9 Lady Antebellum (barrier three) then has paved the way for the Robbie Griffiths-trained first emergency #17 You Can Dance to gain a run.

There are three clear fancies in the GH Mumm Stakes betting markets this year, two of which are currently installed as the equal $5.50 favourites.

The first is Diamond Earth drawn to perfection in gate two with Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup winning jockey Damien Oliver booked for the ride.

Oliver, who has come back from a serious of indiscretions and suspensions, scored his third Melbourne Cup trophy this year with Fiorente and will now shoot for his second Group 1 win in just two days on Thursday.

The Anthony Cummings-trained Choisir four-year-old Diamond Earth enjoyed a Group 3 win at Randwick two back before her close seventh behind Buffering in the Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on October 25.

In the Manikato she was defeated just over a length and will appreciate the big step back in class here when going up against her own kind.

She does however have to carry the 58.5kg equal top-weight along with Lady Of Harrods ($31) which is two kilos more than her Manikato weight.

The other $5.50 GH Mumm Stakes chance is then Dystopia (barrier eight into seven) who carries 57kg with Hugh Bowman booked for the ride on the Chris Waller-trained Redoute’s Choice mare.

A veteran seven-year-old Dystopia was last seen running second behind her stablemate Arinosa, beaten favourite in the Group 3 Lavazza Short Black on Melbourne Cup Day, in the Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) at Randwick back on October 5.

She runs in Melbourne for the first time in 12 months this week having placed a devastatingly close second when defeated a mere nose by Honey Flower in the GH Mumm Stakes last Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The defending GH Mumm Stakes winner Honey Flower is back this year but will jump a $21 outsider in the markets after drawing poorly out wide in 19.

The Bel Esprit five-year-old hasn’t won a race over the past year and was last seen running a horror dead last when defeated 23 lengths by Driefontein in the Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) when injured in the mid-September Sydney showdown.

Following the two top picks in the GH Mumm Stakes odds is then $6 third elect Shamal Wind who has also drawn awkwardly in gate 18.

Robert Smerdon’s Dubawi four-year-old was runner-up to Spirit Of Boom in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (1100m) in a stellar effort two back before her sixth behind Fontelina last start in the Group 2 Yellowglen Stakes (1200m) at Flemington last Saturday.

The only other single figure chance in the markets is then the consistent Bradbury’s Luck four-year-old She Can Skate ($9) in 15 having just her second run this time in.

Other notable hopes at more generous odds then include the first two past the post in the Alinghi Stakes overt this distance at Caulfield on October 19 with runner-up Sumakaray ($10) and the winner Liesele ($12), and the second emergency Forarainyday ($12) who the bookies are taking zero chances on despite them needing another pre-race withdrawal to even get a run.
