The bookies are having a near impossible time of separating the best two in Dequetteville Stakes 2016 betting this Saturday in Adelaide with Moshi and If Not Now When fighting for top spot in the markets.
Due to run as Morphettville Race 5 at 2:53pm (local), this year’s $100,000 Listed Dequetteville Stakes (1050m) features 11 two-year-old fillies.
Sitting top of the current Dequetteville Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au at $4 for the win is the Terry & Karina O’Sullivan-trained daughter of Moshe, Moshki.
The super consistent youngster comes off a string of top three runs including her Adelaide debut on March 5 when she enjoyed a runaway four and three quarter length victory in Morphettville’s Listed Cinderella Stakes (1050m).
She scored the upset that day as a $20 roughie, but won’t be found anywhere near that price on Saturday as she races over the same track and distance from a nice barrier three draw with local apprentice Emily Finnegan retaining the ride.
Hot on Moshki’s heels in the Dequetteville Stakes betting markets this Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival paying $4.60 is the wider-drawn If Not Now When.
Another Melbourne raider, this Henry Dwyer-trained Artie Schiller filly is undefeated to date having won both of her career openers back home.
The latest of those was the lucrative $100,000 VOBIS Gold Plate (1000m) at Cranbourne on April 1, giving her three weeks between runs.
She only steps up 50m further here so should have no issue with the distance for her Adelaide debut, but will need to be at her best with regular rider Michael Dee to ride her from barrier 10 of 11.
Two fillies follow at an equal $7.50 for the win with Areti and Moqla drawn in barriers six and two respectively.
Cranbourne’s Robbie Griffiths trains Street Sense filly Areti who won at Moonee Valley on debut in early February before she was outclassed running a well-beaten 13th to Extreme Choice at Caulfield in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) last start.
Moqla has the good gate on the weekend, the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained daughter of Exceed And Excel well-bred and trained out of Morphettville where she won over 1100m on April 2 to break her maiden status by a tidy two and a quarter lengths.
In an open market a further three hopes are also under $10 to take out the Dequetteville Stakes this season including the market mover Serenely Discreet ($9.50) into $8.
She jumps from gate nine with Adelaide’s most prolific jockey Dom Tourneur to ride the Phillip Stokes-trained filly who won on debut at the track in late January.
Unraced since, she did trial on April 15 at Morphettville Parks and proved her fitness with a good win ahead of her return on the weekend.
Rounding out the hopes at single-figures are Robert Smerdon’s Group 3 performed daughter of Sebring Motown Lil and the unraced Modern Wonder for Leon & Troy Corstens both at $9.
