2015 Kewney Stakes Betting Tips

A classy field of 15 three-year-old fillies will run in the Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) at Flemington this Saturday after the Lee & Anthony Freedman-trained Matilija was scratched this morning.

Four of the runners are offering single figure odds in the betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by Lee & Shannon Hope’s Sabatini.

The three-year-old filly is also the market mover of the field after her price has continually shortened from $3.50 to her current odds of $3.

Sabatini has placed in seven of her eight career starts and is in great recent form after winning both of her two campaign starts in February.

Is this enough to justify her favouritism or will one of the other 14 runners cause an upset? Check out our betting tips for the 2015 Kewney Stakes below and get a comprehensive idea of who to back this Saturday.


#2 Sabatini ($3)

Three-year-old filly Sabatini is the firm favourite to win the Kewney Stakes after winning both of her starts this campaign. After finishing third in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at the end of spring, the filly was spelled for four months before resuming in the Group 3 Kevin Hayes Stakes (1200m) on February 14, which she won by three-quarters of a length. Sabatini backed it up with another win in the Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m) two weeks later, which she won by one length. The filly has won half of her eight career starts and placed in a further three, which means the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) was her lone unplaced run. She will have to overcome a wide start from barrier 13 on Saturday but will have jockey Nicholas Hall in her saddle.


#4 Wawail ($5.50)

David Hayes & Tom Dabernig’s Wawail has placed in all five of her career starts, four of which she won, including the Listed Twilight Glow Stakes (1400m) back in November. The filly resumed with a minor win over 1100m at Flemington on January 31 followed by a minor placing in the Group 3 Vanity (1400m) on February 21, over the same track and distance conditions as the Kewney Stakes. Wawail will enjoy a jump from barrier three with Michael Walker.


#6 Samartested ($13)

One of four horses saddled by Mick Price in the Kewney Stakes, Samartested is great value for punters with a win price of $13 or $4 to place. The three-year-old filly has placed in six of her seven career starts, only running unplaced in a Benchmark 70 at Sandown on January 26. Since then the filly has won a handicap over 1300m at Morphettville and run third behind Sabatini in the Angus Armanasco Stakes. Samartested will jump from barrier eight with Glen Boss in the saddle.
