Open 2016 Alexandra Stakes Field & Betting Market

It is shaping up as an open affair in this year’s Alexandra Stakes 2016 for the fillies at Moonee Valley Racecourse on Thursday night with a host of the hopeful three-year-olds batting for top spot in betting.

Due to jump at 8:15pm (AEDT) as Race 4 on the eight-race William Reid Stakes Night program, this year’s $150,000 Group 3 Art Series Hotel Group Alexandra Stakes (1600m) has attracted a dozen final acceptors.

Currently three of those fillies share top spot at $5 in the Alexandra Stakes odds at Jacqui’s Joy, Labdien and Thames Court the ones to beat according to early markets.

The best drawn of those for the mile showdown is the Mitchell Beer & Max Hinton-trained daughter of Real Saga, Jacqui’s Joy to jump from barrier two with Craig Williams replacing Patrick Moloney in the saddle.

Her lead-up run was a seventh to Badawiya in Flemington’s Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) from a wide barrier 11 of 12 draw on March 12.

She is yet to run at Moonee Valley or over the mile, but the bookmakers are taking no chances with her form the gun gate this weekend in the New Zealand expat’s black-type debut.

The Chris Waller-trained Labdien is just worse than midfield with barrier seven for one of Sydney’s best hoops James McDonald who is down for the ride.

The Stryker filly is another Kewney Stakes graduate backing up at Moonee Valley, where she won over 1200m the start before on February 19, Labdien beaten three lengths for fourth in the lead-up as a $31 roughie.

Thames Court is the widest drawn of the early top fancies out in gate 11 for jockey Hugh Bowman second-up, David Brideoake’s Commands filly coming off a 1200m win by two lengths at the track from March 14.

Her last start in Group class was on Cox Plate Day last October when third behind My Poppette in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Fillies Classic (1600m).

A further two fillies are also under $10 for the win on Thursday evening with Lazumba ($6.50) drawn well in barrier three and the in-form Sweet Redemption ($8.50) one on her outside in gate four.

Steve Richards trains nicely-bred Sebring filly Lazumba who comes off back-to-back wins at Werribee and then Flemington respectively over 1400m.

She’s yet to win over further than that, and her last run over more distanced produced a dead last (15th) beaten over 24 lengths when things went amiss in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) last Victoria Derby Day.

Sweet Redemption is also coming off a string of good runs, Gai Waterhouse’s daughter of Snitzel’s latest start being a second in the Listed Tasmanian Oaks (2100m) at Launceston back on February 21.

At more generous odds for the upset in the Alexander Stakes this Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival are the likes of dual winning Dane Shadow filly Daniela Rosa ($11) and the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Ballybrit ($14) who has won both of her previous starts over a mile including one at Moonee Valley in early February.
