2016 Crown Resorts Plate Field & Betting Odds: Spright Favourite

After the early scratching of Overstep from Thursday’s Crown Resorts Plate 2016 field the in-form Garry Frazer-trained has moved to the top of betting for the Crown Oaks Day feature.

One of two key support acts on the Oaks Day card, this year’s $200,000 Group 3 Crown Resorts Plate (1100m) – registered as the Red Roses Stakes – originally attracted a bumper field of 19 three-year-old fillies.

The Ladies’ Day sprint is down to 18 runners and the notable market mover firming into favouritism in the latest Crown Resorts Plate odds at Ladbrokes.com.au is nicely-bred Hinchinbrook filly Spright ($4.50 into $4).

She jumps from barrier 11 with Tuesday’s 2016 Melbourne Cup winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy to ride the Hawkesbury-based sprinter.

She has won her past two on the trot at home in Sydney including the Listed BR Crowley (1200m) at Randwick by 2.8 lengths on October 15.

Thursday marks Spright’s Melbourne debut, but the bookmakers are taking no chances.

Occupying the second line of Crown Resorts Plate betting at $5.50 for the win is the widely-drawn Kentucky Miss (15) who is also out to extend her winning streak to three straight.

The Joe Pride-trained Foxwedge filly won at Flemington two back in the Listed Cap D’Antibes Stakes (1100m) after a brave third behind Star Turn when taking on the boys in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) in mid-August.

Her latest run was at Warwick Farm on October 12 for an 1100m win and with her winning form at the Flemington track she looks a livewire hope to enjoy another turf triumph.

Despite the size of the field just one other runner is currently under $10 for the win with Conchita ($6 out to $9) drifting in the markets.

She jumps from the outside alley with Craig Newitt booked to ride the Paul Perry-trained Uncle Mo filly from Newcastle.

Conchita hasn’t raced at Flemington but comes off back-to-back Melbourne runs, the latest producing an impressive 2.25 length win over 1000m at Moonee Valley on Manikato Stakes Night.

Two back Conchita finished eighth in the Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield, the winner of which – Hear The Chant – is also booked in for a rematch on Thursday.

Lindsay Park’s lightly-raced Nicconi filly Hear The Chant has won two of her three career runs to date and has Dwayne Dunn retaining the ride this week for her first Flemington assignment.

Heart The Chant pays $16 to continue her good form, with a number of others shorter than her in betting.

There are currently three $11 fancies sitting just outside the top three in betting: Super Too, Faith’s Encore and Miss Wonderland.

James McDonald, aboard Hartnell for his brave third in the Melbourne Cup trifecta this week, jumps aboard the Marc Conners-trained Super Too who is out to improve on her fourth to Kentucky Miss at this track / distance on September 10.

Peter & Paul Snowden saddle-up Denman filly Faith’s Encore who is out to bring her solid Sydney form of two wins and two thirds from four career starts down south.

Her latest run was also behind Kentucky Miss when third, beaten one and a half-lengths over the distance at Warwick Farm last month.

Miss Wonderland meanwhile has had just the one run to date, but the Ciaron Maher-trained Snitzel filly presents as a danger.

She hasn’t raced since her debut six length win over 1200m at Pakenham as a two-year-old in June, Luke Nolen riding first-up on Thursday from a nice barrier five draw.
