2016 Tattersall’s Tiara Form Guide & Betting Preview

Group 1 racing comes to a close for another Australian racing season on Saturday at Eagle Farm Racecourse with the fillies and mares facing off in the Tattersall’s Tiara 2016, a detailed form guide analysis for which is found below.

Due to jump as Eagle Farm Race 8 at 3:17pm (AEST), a final field of 16 face off in this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Club Tiara (1400m).

Two favourites have saluted in the weight-for-age feature in as many years and the top fancy in Tattersall’s Tiara betting at Ladbrokes.com.au this Queensland Winter Racing Carnival is the Ciaron Maher-trained Azkadellia.

She is the market mover too backed in from $2.70 to $2.40 to hand Maher with back-to-back wins after his success in the race 12 months ago with Srikandi.

A host of other mares coming off good lead-up form are also under $10 for the Tiara title this season including Kris Lees’ flyer from NSW Danish Twist ($5.50) and retiring seven-year-old Cradle Me ($8) shooting for a popular double after her Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1400m) win a fortnight back.

That’s the tale of the tape spun by the bookies, but does the Tattersall’s Tiara form guide, betting history and statistics reveal a different story for punters?
