2016 McEwen Stakes Betting Tips & Update

Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes Day runs in Melbourne today with two Group 2 features on the Moonee Valley card including the McEwen Stakes 2016, betting tips and the latest odds for which are found below.

Due to run as Moonee Valley Race 5 at 2:50pm (AEST) this afternoon, the $200,000 Group 2 Mitty’s Racing Colours McEwen Stakes (1000m) field is down to just eight starters after the scratching of Iconic and Chloe In Paris.

Of the remaining sprinters in the weight-for-age clash the best fancied in the updated McEwen Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $2.40 and firming is .

Jumping from the outside barrier eight draw with Damian Lane aboard, the Mathew Ellerton & Simon Zahra-trained daughter of Lonhro chases back-to-back Valley wins this time in.

First-up the Group 1 placed and Group 2 winning four-year-old enjoyed a Listed Norman Carlyon Stakes (1000m) win at the same track and distance she sees today.

A fortnight between runs is ideal and Heatherly has the gun form at Moonee Valley (4-3-0-1) and over the short 1000m distance (6-3-2-1).

So can Heatherly continue her gun form over the 1000m at the notoriously tight Valley circuit or is there value further down the McEwen Stakes betting markets from the likes of Mark Kavanagh’s last start Group 3 winning mare Wild Rain ($5.50) or the returning John O’Shea-trained four-year-old Furnaces ($6)?


#8 Heatherly ($2.40)

The favourite here is too hard to knock or go past and is still at a backable price. It’s a small field so the outside alley is a non-issue and Lane knows the mare well having ridden her for a host of wins including at this track / distance two weeks ago in Black-Type company. The 1000m record at the Valley of this four-year-old is outstanding (4-3-0-1) and she will be improved off her resuming run fitness-wise making her the one to beat and back.


#6 Wild Rain ($5.50)

Think the bookies have the McEwen Stakes quinella spot-on with Wild Rain racing from barrier two on the back of her smart 1.75 length Caulfield win first-up in the Group 3 Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m). She is two-from-three over the McEwen track and distance so the Valley and the 1000m also hold no fears for this five-year-old daughter of Manhatta Rain who should have taken nice benefit from her last start.


#3 Reldas ($14)

The value punt looks to be the rails-drawn Reldas, the Robert Smerdon-trained Testa Rossa six-year-old coming off a good third over 1200m at Flemington earlier in the winter. He has had 10 previous Moonee Valley runs for five wins, a second and a third so a top three run is definitely within reach as he returns to the track for the first time since his Listed Abell Stakes (1200m) win back in March.
