Kicking off ‘Super Saturday’ as Flemington Race 1 at 12:40pm (AEDT), this season’s $150,000 TBV Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m) features a final field of 12 two-year-old fillies.

Sitting top of the current Breeders Stakes odds for the win at is the Lindsay Park-raced daughter of Redoute’s Choice Zamzam at $4.60.

She jumps from barrier eight with Nicholas Hall aboard for her fourth career run where she shoots for a second win after a successful Moonee Valley debut back in late January by two lengths over 1000m.

Her latest run was a brave third behind the Mick Price-trained Golden Slipper Stakes-bound duo Extreme Choice and Flying Artie in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield a fortnight back.

The two weeks between runs should suit as she gets another run over the distance but down the Flemington straight stepping right back in class after the shock elite level placing.

It is a super close Breeders Stakes betting markets this Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival with another four single figure fancies including narrow second favourite Concealer.

A wide gate 11 of 12 draw has put a question mark on the Tony McEvoy-trained daughter of Nicconi.

It hasn’t fazed the punters however with Concealer the early market mover backed in from $5 to $4.80 to overcome the gate, which traditionally isn’t an issue at Flemington over the sprint distance.

Concealer won in Group 3 class at the track over 1000m last Melbourne Cup Carnival before a first-up second in the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m) in mid-February.

Her latest run was also in the Blue Diamond Stakes where she crossed a distant ninth, a performance she presses on from here as she looks to return to form in easier company.

At $5.50 and occupying the third line of betting is last start winner Selenia jumping from a gun gate three draw with apprentice Jye McNeil in the saddle.

Cranbourne’s Robbie Griffiths prepares the Not A Single Doubt filly who ran second in the two lead-up Blue Diamond races for fillies at Caulfield before her last start Flemington win in the Listed Festival Stakes (1000m) on March 5.

She is on the quick back-up and stepping back up in distance, but the straight suited and her confidence levels should have returned after last weekend’s win.

Rounding out the single figure hopes in the Breeders Stakes are Soviet Secret ($6.50) and Emphatically ($9) drawn in barriers 10 and 12 respectively.

Sam Pritchard-Gordon from Mornington saddles-up Soviet Secret who has twice run second from two career starts.

The first at Sandown during November was in the Listed Merson Cooper Stakes (1000m) before she went to Sydney first-up at the start of February when beaten just a quarter-length crossing second to Twist Tops in the Inglis Classic (1200m).

Emphatically is trained by Ciaron Maher and is looking for her first win at her sixth start here.

She was third in the Merson Cooper and second in the Blue Diamond Preview in her only two top three runs so far, but was only a length off Selenia in the Festival Stakes seven days ago on Saturday.
