Tomorrow night Peter Moody’s honest mare Floria gets her chance at another Group win, this time leading the markets for the Sunline Stakes 2014 on William Reid Stakes night.

Running as Moonee Valley Race 6 at 9:15pm (AEST), the $220,000 Group 2 Sunline Stakes (1600m) field features 13 mares this year with Floria leading the Ladbrokes.com.au markets on the Melbourne Festival of Racing feature.

Drawn on the inside alley, always an advantage on the notoriously tight Valley circuit, the six-year-old daughter of Savabeel will be ridden by Luke Nolen.

Nolen was aboard for her first-up effort at Flemington on March 1, Floria finishing just a half-length away second behind Five All in the Group 3 Frances Tressady Stakes (1400m).

She is expected to improve on that second-up, the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara third placegetter from last winter to enjoy the step up to the mile.

It will be her first look at the distance since she won the Group 3 Summoned Stakes (1600m) at Caulfield last spring on the back of a luckless sixth to Red Tracer in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m).

In the latest Sunline Stakes betting markets Floria pays $3.60, and she’s followed closely by market mover You’re So Good at $4.40.

Also drawn well in barrier two, the Nigel Blackiston-trained Savabeel four-year-old has had two good runs this time in and looks ready to strike third-up.

After disappointing in the spring when wide in the Myer Classic to finish 11th she was spelled for four months.

Returning on March 1 You’re So Good caught the eye when runner-up in a non-black type at Flemington before heading to Morphettville for her second behind Riziz in the Listed Matrice Stakes (1200m).

She hasn’t had the most traditional lead-up to the Sunline but she is a winner at the track and distance (2013 Alexandra Stakes) and has form around some good mares so is in with a chance.

The only other mare here under $10 in the Sunline Stakes odds is then $6.50 third favourite Text’n Hurley with a wide barrier 13 draw to overcome.

Colin Little’s Hard Spun four-year-old has been up since Boxing Day and comes into the race on the back of four straight top three finishes.

The most notable of those was also her only black type run since September, the progressive mare running second behind Bonaria in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy (1600m) at Flemington.

She’s expected to enjoy the mile again here at a track she won over two back, the lightly-raced galloper having just her 12th start.

Others at more generous prices worth a look at then include WA-trained Dubawi four-year-old Bippo No Bungus ($10) who ran third in the Schweppervescence, the Michael Kent-trained Goldslick ($10) in barrier three looking to improve on her Tressady Stakes eighth, rising eight-year-old Hi Belle ($12), the Danny O’Brien-trained Keep De Rose ($13) and Are There Any ($13).

Of those one of the best recent performers has been Moody’s other runner, Exceed And Excel four-year-old Are There Any.

After a Flemington win over 1700m in mid-February she stepped up in class for her first Group start in a year and was competitive when two lengths away fourth in the Schweppervescence Trophy.
