Black Heart Bart remains a clear and justifiable $2.70 favourite in 2016 Memsie Stakes betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of stables mates Mahuta ($6.50) and Palentino ($7.50).

Will Black Heart Bart justify favouritism and win the 2016 Memsie Stakes, or will one of his talented rivals post a big upset in the season’s first Group 1 feature?


Black Heart Bart ($2.70)

Black Heart Bart is arguably the class horse of the 2016 Memsie Stakes field, and should just win if he produces a performance close to his best. Transferring to the care of Darren Weir at the beginning of the year, the Blackfriars gelding was given little chance of success in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) first-up but produced a scintillating turn of foot to finish an agonizingly-close second. Progressing to success in the Group 3 Victoria Handicap (1400m) and second in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m), Black Heart Bart broke through for a major win at the highest level in the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) and ended his campaign second to Under The Louvre in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m). Drawn Ideally, Black Heart Bart should prove too sharp for his opponents in the Memsie Stakes.


He Or She ($20)

Consistent galloper He Or She should be well suited to the conditions of the Memsue Stakes and is a proven first-up performer. Capping a strong 2015 campaign a credible fifth in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m), He Or She returned this year for second in the John Moule Handicap (1400m) but was completely luckless in running in the Group 2 Peter Young Stakes (1800m). Responding in the best way possible with success in the Group 2 Blamey Stakes (1600m), the Kendel Star gelding returned to the paddock after finishing mid-pack in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m). He Or She has been confirmed to be partnered by Dwayne Dunn and is arguably over the Memsie Stakes odds at current.


Palentino ($7.50)

A wide draw could be the undoing of Palentino in the Memsie Stakes, but he is undoubtedly up to the class of the field and will carry plenty of benefit into the race. Clearly requiring a run upon returning to racing this year for seventh in the Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1200m), Palentino was unlucky to lose the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) on protest a fortnight later, but responded with an impressive performance for success in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) on March 5th. Having returned to the paddock after finishing second in the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m), the Teofilo entire resumed a fortnight ago for fourth in the Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) and is a leading chance in the Memsie Stakes.
