Having returned to racing in competitive form this time in, Commanding Jewel has claimed favouritism in Let’s Elope Stakes betting markets; currently available at $2.45 odds ahead of Gregers ($4), Solicit ($6) and Gig ($10) with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Will Commanding Jewel return to the winner’s circle in the 2014 Let’s Elope Stakes, or will one of her talented rivals secure an upset?

1st

Gregers ($4)

Having returned to racing in slick form this time in, smart mare Gregers arguably offers punters the best value for success at current odds in Let’s Elope Stakes betting markets. Securing a commendable total of six wins and four minor places from just 15 competitive starts, the Commands mare finishing within two lengths of the world’s leading sprinter Lankan Rupee in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) upon returning to the track this year, and continued to impressive through an autumn campaign which also featured unlucky runs for fourth in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) and Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) and strong run for third in the Group 1 Robert Sangster (1200m) most notably. Yet to be defeated over two starts this time in, including the Group 3 Cockram Stakes (1200m) on August 30th, Gregers will again be partnered by Craig Williams in the Let’s Elope Stakes and will leave from the ideal barrier 3.

2nd

Commanding Jewel ($2.45)

Securing an impressive total of four wins and three minor places from just eight competitive starts so far, lightly-raced mare Commanding Jewel finished third in the Cockram Stakes after nearly 12 months in the spelling paddock following a string of unfortunate injuries. A standout performer from her maiden preparation, the Commands mare won two minors in the early 2012 Spring Racing Carnival before finishing second in the Group 3 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1500m), third in the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes and breaking through for a maiden victory at the highest level of Australian racing in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m). Appearing on track for another impressive preparation through the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival, Commanding Jewel took out the most recent edition of the Let’s Elope Stakes before suffering her first setback. Confirmed to be partnered by champion jockey Damien Oliver, Commanding Jewel appears on course for a polished performance in the Let’s Elope Stakes.

3rd

Gig ($10)

Confirmed to line up for her 19th start this preparation in the 2014 Let’s Elope Stakes, Gig has experienced something of a resurgence of form over recent starts and will be partnered by jockey Craig Newitt this weekend. Finishing mid-pack in the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) on June 21st, the Commands mare returned to Sydney for third in the Listed VRC-CRV Winter Championship Final (1600m) and second in the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m), and has since finished third in the Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) and a credible seventh in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m).
