There are fifteen female milers in the mix for this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m), the weight-for-age showdown scheduled as Flemington Race 6 at 3:05pm (AEDT).

Heading the latest Myer Classic odds at out to join Red Tracer (2013) as the only winner under $15 in the past seven years is the John Thompson-trained First Seal.

The five-year-old daughter of Fastnet Rock comes off a Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) win at Caulfield, and history shows that the past five straight Myer Classic winners all had their final lead-up at that track.

Recently the roughies have dominated the Myer Classic results, which opens up the value in the Myer Classic betting markets for Saturday.

So will First Seal salute from the inside alley or is there a double-figure outside ready to strike at the juicy price such as Hugh Bowman’s mount French Emotion ($31) who won the Blazer Stakes at the track two back for Chris Waller or the John O’Shea-trained Tristarc Stakes third placegetter Pearls ($26)?

#7 Don’t Doubt Mamma ($6.50)

There are just so many different form lines to follow into this race and history has been littered with upset results, but think the Tony McEvoy-trained Not A Single Doubt four-year-old is smart enough to win at her pet track. Flemington can be the downfall of many horses, but she has thrived here boasting the best track record of the field (6-3-1-0). Last time here she won the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) and she saluted over the mile at Moonee valley in the Group 2 Stocks Stakes (1600m) last start. Has been freshened-up so is ready to fly fresh and frank the gun recent form from barrier 13 – that has produced three of the past five winners.


#12 Euro Angel ($11)

Early market mover is the Team Hawkes-trained four-year-old who won the Group 3 Ladies Day Vase (1600m) at Caulfield last time out. She has winning form at Flemington, is yet to finish out of the money in her six career starts, is proven at the distance and has upside. Could be worth following the money trail who from barrier 11 is a genuine Each Way chance stepping up in class.


#2 First Seal ($4.50)

Favourites have won four times in the past decade and this mare is out to be the next. She attempts the Tristarc Stakes – Myer Classic double last achieved by Red Tracer (2013), who was also the last favourite to salute for the punters. Barrier one hasn’t produced a winner in 10 years, but First Seal is a previous Group 1 winner (over Winx no less) so at her best is more than capable of peaking third-up here with all the upside going up to a mile.
