Due to jump at 4:10pm (AEDT) as Rosehill Race 7, this year’s $600,000 Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) features 13 hopefuls led by the odds-on favourite at First Seal.

John Thompson’s Fastnet Rock filly First Seal ($1.85) is looking to become the 12 three-year-old to beat her older Coolmore Classic rivals since 1983, but the first to do so with 55.5kg on her back since Assertive Lass (1997).

She’s drawn wide in barrier 11 but showed excellent ability when winning her first race since the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) during the spring on February 28 with a two length romp in the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm.

First Seal is clearly the one to beat at the odds-on price, but there is slow money starting to trickle in for some of her juicily priced rivals.

Some of the best fancied for an upset Coolmore Classic result this weekend are the Peter Moody-trained Millie Fox Stakes runner-up Plucky Belle ($9.50), recent Triscay Stakes winner Thump ($13), and Guy Walter Stakes third placed Hussonet five-year-old Mahara ($13) on the 52k minimum and drawn well in barrier four.

So will the favourite salute for the punters or is there better value to be found sacking First Seal for the win on Saturday?


#4 First Seal ($1.85)

There are a few things this young gun must to do to win including beating her older rivals at her first attempt, win a 2nd Group 1, carry 55.5kg to victory which hasn’t been done by a 3YO in the race since 1997 and do it from a wide barrier 11 draw. All that aside, First Seal is one class runner and if she gets the right run and improves on her Surround Stakes win she’ll be very hard to beat. Only the brave betting against her.


#9 Mahara ($13)

If you don’t fancy the favourite there is value galore in this year’s Coolmore Classic field including $13 being offered for the nicely-draw Mahara jumping form barrier four with only 52kg on her back. Last start the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained five-year-old jumped from barrier 12 (of 16) with 56kg and was only beaten two and a quarter lengths when third to Danesiri in the Group 3 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m). She should be improving off that, drops in the weights and has winning form over a mile so 1500m should suit.


#12 Adrift ($15)

Another three-year-old against the older mares, this Zabeel filly ran seventh in the Surround Stakes so needs to improve. Before that she won the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) however and had three-quarters of a length to spare over her subsequent conqueror First Seal. She’s beaten the favourite then, has winning form up to 1850m and all four of Waterhouse’s other Coolmore Classic winners did it as three-year-olds.
