Aloisia Tops 2018 The Vanity Field & Odds

Aloisia heads a field of potential Sydney-bound Australian Oaks fillies in Melbourne on Saturday and is set to jump favourite in The Vanity 2018 odds at Flemington Racecourse first-up.

A key support act on the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes Day card, this autumn’s Group 3 $150,000 The Vanity (1400m) runs as Race 6 at 3:25pm (AEDT) and features a field of 11 three-year-old fillies.

Drawn the outside barrier in The Vanity field is the Aaron Purcell-trained daughter of Azamour is first-up after her unplaced sixth as the beaten odds-on favourite in the Group 1 VRC Oaks (2500m) last November.

Prior to that Aloisia enjoyed two very impressive wins firstly in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) defeating subsequent Myer Classic winner Shoals and then in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m) when three and a half-lengths clear of Cliff’s Edge.

The riches in Sydney call for Aloisia over ‘The Championships’ in April and she currently holds a nomination for five of the races including the Group 1 $1 million Australian Oaks (2400m).

But first there is Saturday’s The Vanity Stakes and Aloisia sits as the $2.45 favourite in markets at Ladbrokes.com.au to salute.

Four of her rivals are also under $10 in The Vanity Stakes betting markets including the $4.60 second elect, Henry Dwyer’s undefeated Paris Rock.

The Pop ‘N’ Rock filly has won all three of her starts to date in easier company earning her a shot at a Group 3 at Flemington where she will be out to make it three-from-three over the distance.

Second-up she made a mess of her rivals at Ballarat over 1400m in a Class 1 before heading to Caulfield on February 3 where she defeated Earth Angel in a Benchmark 78 for three-year-old fillies over the same metres.

The Early The Vanity market mover backed in from $9.50 to $8.50 after drawing a treat in barrier three is Luke Currie’s mount, Bring Me Roses.

Tony McEvoy trains the well-performed daughter of High Chaparral whose last run produced the surprise VRC Oaks second to Pinot.

Bring Me Roses will be better over further later in the autumn and is yet to win over less than a mile, but first-up could handle the 1400m and get an early Group win on the board this preparation.

Rounding out the single-figure fancies at an equal $9 are then Banish and Twitchy Frank drawn alongside each other in barriers one and two respectively.

Top hoop Craig Williams partners the James Cummings-trained Lonhro filly Banish who enjoyed back-to-back wins in the spring with the same jockey in the saddle.

The Godolphin-raced three-year-old was last seen taking out the Group 2 Moonee Valley Fillies Classic (1600m) on Ladbrokes Cox Plate Day and has first-up claims this weekend in her Flemington debut.

Twitchy Frank meanwhile is one of two in the field for Victoria’s leading trainer Darren Weir, the Choisir filly having her first black-type assignment on the back of a fifth to Paris Rock from earlier in the month when giving the weight away.
