Dunn Has No Doubts with Mamma in Let’s Elope Stakes

The strong Flemington form of the Tony McEvoy-trained Don’t Doubt Mamma has jockey Dwayne Dunn full of confidence aboard the mare in the 2016 Let’s Elope Stakes this weekend.

One of the feature races on the Makybe Diva Stakes Day card in Melbourne on Saturday, this year’s $200,000 Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) features a full field of mares.

Two are currently battling for top spot in the Let’s Elope Stakes odds with Badawiya and Don’t Doubt Mamma installed as the $6 co-favourites.

Mick Price saddles-up his Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) winner at the track and distance from the autumn Badawyia first-up on the weekend as she looks to retain her unbeaten Flemington (2-2-0-0) and 1400m (2-2-0-0) records.

The fitness edge meanwhile belongs to McEvoy’s four-year-old daughter of Not A Single Doubt with Don’t Doubt Mamma second-up for the spring in the set weights plus penalties clash.

From five previous Flemington runs she has enjoyed two wins and a third, her last start here producing the second to Saturday rival Badawyia in the Kewney Stakes from the outside alley (12 of 12).

That followed her Group 3 Vanity Stakes (1400m) success from February, Dunn aboard for both runs.

Dunn also rode her in Group 1 company on May 7 when Don’t Doubt Mamma finished 5.5 lengths away 15th in the Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) in Adelaide.

She resumed a fortnight ago at Flemington for a fifth to Ocean Embers in the Group 3 Cockram Stakes (1200m).

Don’t Doubt Mamma was beaten only 1.6 lengths that run and is tipped to enjoy the extra metres in the Let’s Elope Stakes with stellar form so far over the 1400m (4-3-1-0).

Dunn is also back aboard replacing Luke Currie in the saddle and his sole concern is the inside alley, barrier one a negative in a capacity 16-starter field at Flemington.

“She’s done nothing wrong there [at Flemington over 1400m],” Dunn told Racing Victoria.

“[She has] acquitted herself very well every time.

“Barrier one’s my only negative, trying to work away from the inside and get clean air.”

That said, Dunn is confident that if they can stay out of trouble and land in the right spot early Don’t Doubt Mamma will take “a lot of beating”.

“If I can get her into a situation, she’s got a beautiful finish on her and she should take a lot of beating,” he said.

Early money is also coming in the Let’s Elope Stakes markets for Thames Court who has been backed in from $11 to $9.

Mornington’s David Brideoake prepares the four-year-old daughter of Commands who comes off the close Cockram Stakes second.

Thames Court’s best form has been at the tight Moonee Valley circuit, including her Group 3 Alexandra Stakes (1600m) success by 2.5 lengths over the mile in late March.

From barrier nine on the weekend she is predicted to go forward and gets every chance to finish in the money with Ryan Maloney retaining the ride.
