2014 Matriach Stakes Betting Update

A maximum field of mares is set to contest the Group 2 Matriach Stakes (2000m) this Saturday at Flemington, with 16 plus four emergencies declaring for the Stakes Day supporting race.

The 2014 Matriach Stakes is one of five Group One races running this Saturday as part of Emirates Stakes Day, the final race day of the 2014 Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Just four of the mares are offering single figure odds in the Matriach Stakes betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by Suavito at $4.80.

The Nigel Blackiston-trained mare will jump from the middle of the field in barrier eight with Damien Oliver to ride. Suavito has had a pretty successful spring season so far despite not leaving the stalls in the Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m), for which she was favourite. She then took away a minor placing in the Group 3 Ladies Day Vase (1600m) before returning to the winner’s circle in the Group 3 Eliza Park International Stakes (1600m).

She’ll make her first start beyond the mile for the first time since April, when she finished sixth in the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m), but doesn’t have the best track record over the distance.

Making her win that much harder are the classy rivals she’ll need to beat home, including three other single figure hopefuls.

  • #1 Solicit ($6.50)Matthew Ellerton & Simon Zahra’s four-year-old mare shares the second line of betting and will jump from barrier 10 if the emergencies don’t make the race with Damian Lane as hoop. She hasn’t seen a win since March in the Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) and only finished first three in two of her seven races since then. However, unlike many of her rivals she’s had lots of experience at the top level of racing. She just missed out on a placing in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) last time out after sitting just off the leaders heels. After pushing through late she ran a really nice race but never looked like a winner.
  • #9 Scratchy Bottom ($6.50) – Michael Kent’s four-year-old mare will get a good jump from barrier 4 (into 3) with Dwayne Dunn in the saddle. She is the market mover of the field after seeing her price shorten from $10 to her current price. Scratchy Bottom’s two spring starts haven’t been too good, finishing bottom of the field in both the Blazer Stakes and Eliza Parks International, however an inside run could change that result for her in the Matriach. Perhaps punters just can’t get enough of her name?
  • #13 Amanpour ($7) – Gai Waterhouse missed out on a 2014 Melbourne Cup run after The Offer was scratched but the trainer returns strong on Stakes Day, including with the four-year-old mare Amanpour, who will jump from barrier 10 (into 8) with Tommy Berry as hoop. The mare has finished in the top two in all three of her spring starts, including a win in the Vinery Handicap (1550m) on Tuesday, which she’ll back up from four days later.

Of course there are a number of runners with lucrative double digit odds that could easily win the race, including Tango’s Daughter ($16) and Spirit Of Heaven ($13).
