Aghna Leads 2016 Widden Stakes Field & Betting

Gabrielle Englebrecht’s early market mover Aghna leads the field and early Widden Stakes 2016 betting markets for her second race start in Sydney this weekend.

The daughter of Foxwedge is the best fancied of the 13 fillies engaged for the $150,000 Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday, the event running as Race 4 at 2:30pm (AEDT).

Aghna had her first run at Wyong last month in the Magic Millions Classic (1100m) and finished third to subsequent winner of the $2 million Gold Coast edition of the same restricted feature Capitalist.

Since then the smart filly trialled at the Randwick hit-outs on January 12 and saluted over 838m with Tye Angland in the saddle, Angland continuing his association on Saturday from the wide alley.

Five of her rivals are also under double figures in Widden Stakes betting on Expressway Stakes Day on Saturday including former favourite So Serene ($5) and Honesty Prevails ($6) drawn in barriers eight and seven respectively.

Gai Waterhouse’s promising two-year-old So Serene is also in the mix for Melbourne’s $1.5 million Group 1 Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at the end of next month.

The daughter of Exceed And Excel Drawn has Tommy Berry booked for the ride and previously led the Widden Stakes odds at $4.60 before the plunge on rival Aghna who was quickly backed in from $6.50.

A $17 chance in the all-in Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes markets, So Serene ran second to Extreme Choice on debut at Randwick in the Inglis Nursery (1000m) in December and finished third in a subsequent 838m trial on January 12.

Jason Collett rides Rick Worthington’s debutant Honesty Prevails, the daughter of Redoute’s Choice having won both of her Randwick trails this summer including her runaway four length romp over 1050m earlier in the month.

Also under $10 for the win are the John O’Shea-trained daughter of 2011 Blue Diamond – Golden Slipper Stakes winner Sepoy Chipanda ($7), Joe Pride’s last start Warwick Farm winner in the wet Kentucky Miss ($7.50) and Waterhouse’s unraced Star Witness filly Global Glamour ($8) coming off a Randwick trial win.

Outside of the single figure hopes are a number of other progressive fillies with genuine Widden Stakes claims including the rails-drawn daughter of Commands Nonpareil ($13) for Godolphin’s John O’Shea and the James Cummings-trained Smart Amelia ($14) in gate three.

One of the best value Widden Stakes bets meanwhile looks to be Cudabeen ($17) who is in the mix again despite drawing the outside alley.

Tracey Bartley’s I Am Invincible filly won on debut at Kembla Grange last month before her second over 1100m at Rosehill on January 2 when just unable to reel in the winner Scarlet Rain.
