Lady Le Fay Heads 2016 Tesio Stakes Field & Betting Odds

The Chris Waller-trained Lady Le Fay is early favourite of the mares accepted to face off in the Tesio Stakes 2016 field at Moonee Valley Racecourse on Cox Plate Day this weekend.

Set to run as Moonee Valley Race 5 at 2:25pm (AEDT), this season’s $150,000 Group 3 Tesio Stakes (1600m) runs as the Merlin Garage Door Openers Stakes.

A final field of a dozen mares are in the mix with the latest Tesio Stakes odds at led by Waller’s 58kg top weight Lady Le Fay.

The six-year-old daughter of Thorn Park goes up three kilos from the 55kg she carried to second behind Dixie Blossoms at home in Sydney last start in the Group 3 Angst Stakes (1600m).

Despite the rise in weight and the fact she’s yet to race in Melbourne, the bookies are keeping Lady Le Fay safe in Tesio Stakes betting at $2.60.

She has eased out slightly from odds of $2.35 when the markets first opened, but is still the clear favourite of the four single-figure fancies.

Occupying the second line of betting is the early market mover Metaphorical backed in from $8.50 to $7.50.

Drawn mid-field in barrier six, Luke Currie rides the Lindsay Park-trained Dylan Thomas six-year-old who has good form at the tight Moonee Valley track.

She’s lined up at the course six times for two wins, a second and a third, her last run here producing the third to Miss Rose De Lago in late March in the Group 2 Sunline Stakes (1600m).

Metaphorical is third-up this weekend and out to improve on her sixth to French Emotion in the Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on October 2.

At an equal $9 are Rocket Commander and Antelucan drawn who has mixed luck in the Tesio Stakes barrier draw receiving gates 11 and one respectively.

Canberra’s Matthew Dale saddles-up Court Command mare Rocket Commander who comes off a nice second on Blue Sapphire Stakes Day in the Group 3 Ladies Day Vase (1600m) at Caulfield.

She goes up a kilo to 57kg here however and has the wide barrier to overcome.

Antelucan gets the inside run from barrier one with James McDonald riding the John O’Shea-trained daughter of Domesday, the four-year-old coming off a third in the Ladies Day Vase from October 12.

She has had two goes around the Valley circuit without a top three finish however, and chases her first win since the Listed Adelaide Guineas (1600m) at Morphettville in mid-May.

Of the longer-priced hopefuls after an upset there could be value in the likes of Michael Moroney’s recent Caulfield winner Alaskan Rose ($10) coming off a fifth in the Ladies Day Vase beaten under three lengths and Manageress ($10).

Drawn the outside alley this weekend, the Cindy Alderson-trained Manageress was disappointing in the Ladies Day Vase when 6.4 lengths away ninth, but gets the chance to atone here and also improve on her eighth in the Tesio Stakes last year.

The defending Tesio Stakes winner Coronation Shallan, who beat home subsequent Group 1 winner Azkadellia, meanwhile is at a quote of $20 to go back-to-back after her eighth first-up in the Blazer Stakes.
