2016 Moonee Valley Fillies Classic Field & Betting Odds

A capacity Moonee Valley Fillies Classic 2016 field will face off on Cox Plate Day this weekend with a host of promising and progressive three-year-old fillies in the mix for the set weights clash over a mile.

Running as Moonee Valley Race 6 at 3:00pm (AEDT) as part of a bumper 10-race program, this year’s $200,000 Group 2 P.B. Glass Fillies Classic (1600m) has attracted the full 15 starters.

Heading the Moonee Valley Fillies Classic field and early betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au is the Shane Nichols-trained I Am A Star.

The in-form daughter of I Am Invincible pays $3.40 for the win, which would be her first since a resuming victory at Caulfield in the Group 3 Quezette Stakes (1100m) back in mid-August.

Her latest run showed she could be set to strike again however when runner-up to Global Glamour in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) beaten only a length as a $20 roughie.

She faces an easier class of rivals here over the same distance in her first Moonee Valley run.

Hot on her heels in the Moonee Valley Fillies Classic odds at $4 is the widely-drawn Sezanne with the outside barrier (15) to overcome.

Hugh Bowman jumps aboard the Chris Waller-trained More Than Ready filly for the first time since he rode her for a 1200m Canterbury win in late August.

Since then she has run twice at Randwick under different hoops, including her brave last start third to subsequent Thousand Guineas winner Global Glamour in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) on October 1.

She’s had the three weeks between runs heading into the weekend and is racing the Melbourne way for the first time here, which is the challenge for Sezanne as well as the awkward barrier.

Despite the size of the field just two other fillies are at single-figures for the win with the John O’Shea-trained Chipanda and Exocet both at $8.

Sepoy filly Chipanda is yet to live up to her blue-blood pedigree, but gets another chance to shine this weekend on the back of a mid-field sixth to Serenely Discreet at Flemington in the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) on October 2.

James McDonald continues his association in the MV Fillies Classic and she is drawn wide again in barrier 13.

Exocet gets a better run from barrier five on Saturday with Dwayne Dunn booked for the ride on the Lee & Anthony Freedman-trained Smart Missile Filly.

She won back-to-back races in September before her Edward Manifold eighth, a run Exocet can improve on here with the Group 2 and mile experience now on her record.

The best fancied of the rest after the upset include the lightly-raced Ceylon ($10) coming off a smart Cranbourne win from October 7 and Kiwi raider La Luna Rossa ($13) coming off a Thousand Guineas eighth.
