Petits Filous Tops Moir Stakes 2015 Odds

The undefeated Ciaron Maher-trained filly Petits Filous is the firming short-priced favourite in 2015 Moir Stakes betting for Friday night’s Group 1 feature at Moonee Valley Racecourse.

A three-year-old daughter of Street Boss, Petits Filous has won all four of her career starts to date including two from two at Moonee Valley where she returns this weekend stepping up in class for the $450,000 Group 1 City Jeep Moir Stakes (1000m).

Running as Race 7 at 9:45pm (AEST), the weight-for-age classic features a final field of 13 hopefuls including two three-year-old fillies carrying the 51kg light weight.

The last three-year-old filly to win the Moir Stakes was a decade ago with Virage De Fortune (2005), a feat Petits Filous currently pays $2.20 (in from $2.50) to repeat this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Glen Boss takes over for the suspended Damien Oliver in the saddle with Petits Filous coming off a Flemington black-type win over 1100m by two and a quarter lengths.

Favourites have a gun Moir Stakes record with five winning since 2007, most recently Buffering for his first in 2012.

There are just three other single figure fancies in the latest Moir Stakes betting markets including $4.60 second pick Fontiton who is the other three-year-old filly taking on the older horses in the sprint classic.

Drawn in barrier nine, which hasn’t produced a winner since Mistegic (2001), the Robert Smerdon-trained Turffontein filly has won three of her four starts to date and was last seen running fifth to Pride Of Dubai in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) back in late February.

The other two hopes under $10 for the Moir Stakes win this weekend are the defending champion Buffering ($7.50) after his third win in four years and the rails-drawn Ball Of Muscle ($8.50).

The Robert Heathcote-trained Brisbane raider Buffering is an eight-year-old son of Mossman whose last start was a sixth in the Group 1 Hong Kong Sprint (1200m) overseas in mid-December.

He’s a gun at the Moonee Valley track with four wins, a second and a third from nine previous runs including the 2012 and 2014 editions of the Moir Stakes.

With over $4.8 million in total prize money this veteran sprinter is a genuine superstar in the Heathcote stable and on Friday night jumps from barrier six that last produced a winner in California Dane (2006).

Ball Of Muscle meanwhile gets the inside run from barrier one with jockey Glyn Schofield aboard shooting for his first Moir Stakes trophy.

A winner of eight of his 15 runs so far, Dubawi five-year-old Ball Of Muscle comes off a devastatingly close second to Rebel Dane in Sydney’s Group 2 The Shorts (1100m) a fortnight ago and runs in Melbourne for the first time since April.

Other Moir Stakes chances at more generous odds after the upset this season include the Peter Moody-trained The Goodwood winner Flamberge ($10) out in barrier 12 who is second-up this prep and last year’s fourth placegetter Angelic Light ($11) who returns to racing at Moonee Valley where she has a top record (8-3-2-1).
