Myer Classic 2014 Betting Update: May’s Dream Clear Favourite

Darren Weir’s Australasian Oaks winner May’s Dream is now the clear top fancy to win Saturday’s 2014 Myer Classic despite drawing barrier 11 for the Victoria Derby Day showdown.

The New Approach four-year-old is one of a capacity 16 fillies and mares, plus four emergencies, facing off in the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) at Flemington on the opening day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

She was batting for top spot in the Myer Classic odds at before the final field announcement but is now sitting well clear of her rivals at $4.60 with Brad Rawiller to ride her from barrier 11.

With the emergencies out she will come in just one barrier to 10, both gates much wider than three which she jumped form last time out when two lengths away fourth in the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on October 18.

Tristarc Stakes winner Sweet Idea from the Sydney stables of Gai Waterhouse is then the next best in Myer Classic betting for the weekend, the Snitzel mare paying $6.50.

Tommy Berry has the ride on the in-form four-year-old who jumps from the inside alley, barrier one having produced two Myer Classic winners since 1983.

A winner of two Group 2 races this season Sweet Idea is shooting for her maiden Group 1 win.

She’s twice been tested in Group 1 company this campaign alone when second in the Memsie and fourth in the Sir Rupert Clarke over 1400m and so should appreciate the 1600m on the weekend boasting a good record over the mile (5-2-1-0).

Despite the bumper Myer Classic field there are just two other hopes under $10 to take it out with Catkins ($8) and Solicit ($8.50).

The Chris Waller-trained Catkins was runner-up to her star stable mate Red Tracer in last year’s Myer Classic and has been tracking well again this campaign.

The five-year-old daughter of Dubawi, drawn in barrier eight with Damien Oliver in the saddle, was ridden by Hugh Bowman for her latest three runs for a trio of top three runs.

The most recent was a third in the Tristarc Stakes that she’ll be out to improve on when getting up to a mile at Flemington, a track she’s yet to finish out of the money on (3-0-2-1).

Solicit meanwhile came up trumps with barrier five with the local Matthew Ellerton & Simon Zahra-trained Street Cry four-year-old coming off a close eighth to Trust In A Gust in the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m).

Before that she was runner-up to Dear Demi in the Group 2 Stocks Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley and is another with a gun record at Flemington (6-2-0-3).

Outside of the single figure Myer Classic hopes are then a host of other longer priced chances with genuine claims for an upset including the Robert Smerdon-trained Politeness ($13), last start Group 3 Angst Stakes winner over the Randwick mile Neena Rock ($14), the in-form Star Fashion ($15) shooting for third straight Melbourne win and Waterhouse’s other hope Diamond Drille ($15) who is a Group 1 winner over 1600m from the autumn.
