2017 Matriarch Stakes Field & Betting Odds

It is a wide open affair on Emirates Stakes Day this Saturday at Flemington in the Matriarch Stakes 2017 field and betting with a host of livewire chances to salute in the mares’ clash.

Due to run as Flemington Race 6 on the final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, this season’s Group 2 $300,000 7News Matriarch Stakes (2000m) features a final field of 13.

In the latest Matriarch Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, five of those mares are under $10 for the win including narrow early favourite Falika ($5).

Drawn well in barrier two with Kerrin McEvoy coming aboard Greg Eurell’s five-year-old, Falika is out to extend her winning streak to four straight.

She was last seen saluting over the distance at Moonee Valley on Ladbrokes Manikato Stakes Night and has earlier winning form this time in at Flemington.

Perfectly suited to the 2000m (4:2-1-1), Falika is also well-weighted coming down from 56.5kg last start to 55kg here and with that flying finish of hers looks the one to hold out.

Occupying the second line of Matriarch Stakes betting this spring at $6.50 is the progressive Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Beneteau four-year-old Prompt Response.

The dual Flemington runner-up comes off a Derby Day lead-up in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) when fourth and only a quarter-length off the winner Shoals after a wide run from barrier 13 (of 16).

Jockey Blake Shinn retains the ride this Saturday as Prompt Response looks to improve in her first 2000m test from a better gate five draw on Emirates Stakes Day.

Following closely in the markets are the likes of Heavens Above ($7) and Savapinski ($7.50) drawn the far outside in barriers 12 and 13 respectively.

It has been a long time between drinks for the Tim Martin-trained Street Cry six-year-old Heavens Above who hasn’t won since the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill back in March.

She has been unplaced in her five subsequent runs, but was finishing off very nicely in the Myer Classic when eighth and can improve here having been competitive at this distance earlier in her career.

Savapinski also shapes-up as a danger and is the second Waterhouse & Bott-trained chance in the race.

Brenton Avdulla rides the consistent Savabeel four-year-old who ran fourth at Randwick in the Group 3 Angst Stakes (1600m) two back before an improved second in the Group 3 Tesio Stakes (1600m) on Ladbrokes Cox Plate Day at The Valley.

This is her first look at 2000m, but she is untapped and lightly raced with upside having won three of her six starts to date.

Rounding out the single-figure fancies in the Matriarch Stakes markets this year is the Darren Weir-trained Stormy Atlantic mare Tahanee ($9.50) coming off a lead-up win at the track over 1700m, while there has been early money for last start third placegetter in the Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) Payroll ($13 into $10).
