Eleven mares have been confirmed to contest this afternoon’s Group 3 Ladies’ Day Vase (1600m) at Caulfield Racecourse; figuring as a particularly interesting event from a betting standpoint and offering several key opportunities for punters to take advantage of great value and odds.
Miss Rose De Lago has received huge support from punters in 2015 Ladies’ Day Vase betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au; cutting in from an opening quote of $5.50 to currently figure as clear $3.70 favourite and market mover ahead of Kayjay’s Joy ($5.50), Iggimacool and Lucky Lago; currently sharing the third line at generous $6 quotes.
Will Miss Rose De Lago justify her resounding favouritism and win the Ladies’ Day Vase or will one of her many talented rivals post an upset?
Iggimacool will need luck in transit in the Ladies’ Day Vase this afternoon after drawing the outside barrier, but has the class and form to post success at great odds. Posting seven wins and as many minors through twenty four career starts so far, the Savoire Vivre mare ran second in a pair of Caulfield minors over 1200m and 1600m respectively in July and August; progressing to second in the Listed Heatherlie Stakes (1700m) before returning to the winner’s circle in the Spring Is The Season Handicap (1700m) on September 12th. While completely luckless in her most recent start, Iggimacool should relish a return to a mile and will be hard to beat with only 56kgs in tow.
Lucky Lago ($6)
Lucky Lago has been transferred to the care of Lee and Anthony Freedman for her 2015 Spring Carnival campaign, and is sure to have taken plenty of benefit from her last start run for third in the Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on October 4th. Returning this time for success in the Cove Hotel BM90 (1200m) on September 2nd, the daughter of Encosta De Lago was unable to match the late pace in the Bendigo Bank East Malvern BM90 (1400m) but responded well with her most recent effort amongst classy company. Lucky Lago could very well receive the run of the race from the rails draw this afternoon and will be partnered by formed hoop Mark Zahra.
Four-year-old Amarela has found excellent form through four starts this time, is positioned well in barrier 7 and should have no issues in performing with only 55kgs on board. Amarela ran third in the Hygain BM70 (1200m) first-up this time; progressing to success in the Brief Affair BM70 (1200m) on August 30th before failing to fire in the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) on September 12th. Having returned to the winner’s circle with a commanding three length effort in the Champagne Pommery BM70 (1600m) last time out, the mare is sure to lay a great account for herself this afternoon.
