2015 Schweppervescence Trophy Tips & Selections

The Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy (1600m) is one of nine black-type races running at Flemington this Saturday, attracting 12 classy fillies and mares.

Bonaria's impressive track & distance record at Flemington running over 1200 metres has her well placed to win the Schweppervescence Trophy.

A third of the field is offering single figure odds in the betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by firm favourite Noble Protector at $2.70.

The Robert Smerdon-trained five-year-old has continued to see support from punters in the betting market with her price shortening from $4. Noble Protector has placed in eight of her 11 career starts and will make just her third Australian start in Saturday’s race after importing from the UK last spring.

Noble Protector ran second in the Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m) first-up before just missing out on a placing in the Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes(2600m) on November 8. After a four month spell, the mare will resume in the Schweppervescence Trophy and step down in distance.

Are the mare’s short odds justified? Or is there another more qualified runner that could win the 2015 Schweppervescence Trophy? Check out our betting tips for the race below.

1st

#1 Bonaria ($6.50)

Pat Hyland’s six-year-old mare will carry the topweight of 58.5kg but enjoy a jump from barrier four with Dwayne Dunn. Bonaria is already a winner at the highest level of racing after winning the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) on November 1, which is also over the track and distance of the Schweppervescence Trophy. Bonaria resumed for a runner-up finish in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) on February 14 before running unplaced in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m) two weeks later, however she was only one and a half lengths behind the winner Tycoon Tara.  Bonaria has an impressive record over the track & distance, winning four of her five starts over the race conditions.

2nd

#3 Set Square ($6)

The Ciaron Maher-trained Set Square will have to overcome a wide start from barrier 11 but will have champion hoop Hugh Bowman in her saddle. The three-year-old filly has placed in all five of her career starts, three of which she won. The filly is already a winner at the highest level of racing after scoring the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) by one and a half lengths on November 6. She proved she’s not just a stayer after running a close second in the Group 3 Vanity (1400m) first-up on February 21.

3rd

#7 Choose ($10)

One of two runners saddled by Lee & Shannon Hope in the Schweppervescence Trophy, Choose will enjoy the inside run from barrier one with superstar international jockey Joao Moreira to ride. This makes Choose a lucrative betting option for punters to round out their trifectas with a win price of $10 or $3 to place. The four-year-old mare has finished in the first two in six of her 12 career starts, two of which were at Flemington however she has never run over a mile. Choose won two Benchmark races over 1400m in January before running a close second to Tycoon Tara in the Mannerism Stakes.
