Speak Fondly Tops Furious Stakes 2015 Odds

One of the two Gai Waterhouse-trained fillies in the mix for this Saturday’s 2015 Furious Stakes leads the early markets with last start winner Speak Fondly tipped to secure back-to-back spring wins on the weekend.

A small 10-starter field is accepted for this year’s edition of the $175,000 Group 2 Coolmore Furious Stakes (1200m), the set weights race for three-year-old fillies running as Randwick Race 4 (2:30pm) on Chelmsford Stakes Day.

Drawn midfield in barrier five with Kerrin McEvoy booked for the ride is the current market mover and $2.70 favourite in Furious Stakes betting at Ladbrokes.com.au, Waterhouse’s daughter of Northern Meteor Speak Fondly.

Winner of the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) in mid-March the filly failed to impress when 11th behind stablemate Vancouver in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at the same track and distance to see out her autumn before a first-up win on August 22.

Racing at Randwick where she returns after more Group glory on Saturday, Speak Fondly and McEvoy combined to win the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) by one and a quarter lengths and looks a big chance of repeating the feat in the Furious.

Second pick in the markets is the fellow Waterhouse-trained English at $3.80 who ran second in the Golden Slipper on the back of a Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) win at Randwick.

Her last start was up over 1400m in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes, but back to 1200m on Saturday at a track she boasts previous winning form at, English could surprise fresh.

There are three other single figure hopes to take out the Furious Stakes this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival with Serene Majesty ($7), Ottoman ($7.50) and the rails-drawn Perignon ($8.50).

The Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Serene Magic has just her third career start here, the Fastnet Rock filly having broken her maiden status on August 12 at Canterbury by an impressive five and a quarte lengths ahead of her black-type debut in the Furious Stakes.

Ottoman represents John O’Shea and Godolphin, the daughter of Exceed And Excel coming up trumps with barrier four and James McDonald to ride.

McDonald has ridden her three times for a Rosehill win last December, a Silver Slipper fourth and her second to English in the Reisling Stakes back in March.

She then ran ninth in Golden Slipper before a last start win in April in the wet at Randwick in the Group 3 Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m).

Perignon gets the run of the race from the inside alley with top hoop Hugh Bowman aboard the Gerald Ryan-trained Snitzel filly whose last start was a second to Saturday’s favourite Speak Fondly in the Magic Night Stakes.

Outside those under $10 are then Golden Slipper third placed Lake Geneva ($12) coming off a Silver Shadow third for Team Hawkes and O’Shea’s other runner Calaverite ($14) who have genuine claims to score an upset Furious Stakes result at good odds.
