One of the key support acts on the ‘Super Saturday’ race card in Melbourne at Flemington Racecourse this weekend is the Kewney Stakes 2016, betting tips for the three-years-old fillies’ clash found below.
Set to run as Flemington Race 5 at 3:10pm (AEDT), this season’s $200,000 Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) field is now down to 15 runners after the early scratching of Lopartega (6).
Leading the latest Kewney Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au in what is a wide open market currently is Don’t Doubt Mamma ($5) who has the nasty outside barrier (15) to overcome on the weekend.
Tony McEvoy’s daughter of Not A Single Doubt was last seen running three weeks’ back in the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m), which she won, and now she shoots for her third win from five starts at Flemington.
She can improve off that, but she’ll need to be at her best with the alley here, and shares favouritism in Kewney Stakes betting with one of the market movers Catch A Fire who shoots for her third win on the trot.
Last time out the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Sebring filly won Caulfield’s Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m) by over two lengths, and from barrier four she looks a big hope of extending the winning streak in her maiden run at Flemington.
Also considered a danger by the bookies is Badawiya ($6) drawn well in gate two who is first-up for Mick Price after a Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) third last start back in October, and Peter Moody’s Crown Oaks fourth placegetter Pasadena Girl ($8) coming off an Angus Armanasco Stakes third first-up.
With a number of livewire chances see below for our Kewney Stakes tips so you know who to back and who to sack in the showdown!
#4 Catch A Fire ($5)
Catch A Fire looks best value for the win with the ideal barrier four draw and the back-to-back lead-up wins behind her. She hasn’t run at Flemington before, but she handled the tight turns at Moonee Valley two back for a four length romp over 1200m and then rose in class for another tidy win by over two lengths in the Group 2 Angus Armanasco a fortnight ago.
#1 Pasadena Girl ($8)
#5 Mossin’ Around ($12)
