There are 18 left to contest this year’s Group 1 $600,000 Coolmore Classic (1500m) and the Chris Waller-trained four-year-old daughter of Sebring Egg Tart is the one to beat.

Firming favourite in the Coolmore Classic odds at Ladbrokes.com.au backed in from $7 to $5.50, Egg Tart is after her first win since completing the interstate Group 1 Schweppes Oaks (2010m) – Queensland Oaks (2200m) double as a filly last winter.

First-up she was just a length away fourth in Randwick’s Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m) against the boys and on Saturday against her own kind she gets the run of the race from barrier three with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle again.

The dangers according to the Coolmore Classic betting markets are the rails-drawn Raiment ($7) for Godolphin coming off placings in the Triscay (3rd) and Guy Walter Stakes (2nd), Ron Quinton’s Guy Walter winner Dixie Blossoms ($7.50) and last year’s runner-up Silent Sedition ($8) from Victoria.

The Coolmore Classic is a roughies’ race however with five of the past six winners jumping at double-figures.

Earlier in the week we published our comprehensive Coolmore Classic 2018 Form Guide & Betting Preview, our below tips based on the facts and stats uncovered there.

1st

#3 Daysee Doom ($13)

Going the upset and have the longer-priced of the two Ron Quinton-trained mares as the one to beat at a nice price. She has work to do from barrier 14 out to be the first to salute from outside of barrier 9 since gate 14 produced back-to-back winners in 2009-10. The Millie Fox Stakes form has held-up twice in three years and this Domesday five-year-old’s first-up win in that was eye-catching. Andrew Adkins retains the ride on the mare who looked to still have plenty to give on the line last time out. She was a close fourth in this race last year from a similar gate (15) but had only 51kg on her back. Dual Group winner since including taking out the Group 2 Golden Pendant (1400m) at this track second-up in the spring when beating Dixie Blossoms. She’s the Rosehill specialist in the race (8:4-1-2) and just has to overcome the weight and gate to salute.

2nd

#2 Silent Sedition ($8)

Last year this Andrew Noblet-trained War Chant mare was only just beaten on the line by Heavens Above when runner-up in the Coolmore Classic third-up off a lead-up Mannerism Stakes win at Caulfield. She goes up from 54.5kg 12 months ago to 57.5kg on the weekend, but she did it tough from alley 18 then and has drawn far better with gate 7 on Saturday and Craig Williams aboard. Successfully defended her Mannerism Stakes title last start with a big 2.25 length win and gets the chance to frank that form here and add another Group 1 to the record after the William Reid Stakes sprint success at The Valley last March.

3rd

#14 Francaletta ($12)

It’s a hugely open race full of depth with the majority boasting place claims, but fancy this Murray Baker & Andrew Noblet-trained Kiwi raider to be in the mix. She’s drawn a treat in barrier two that, along with gate seven, has produced four Coolmore Classic winners since 1983. Stephen Baster comes aboard the five-year-old daughter of High Chaparral who gets in on just 52kg, a three kilo drop to what she carried to a first-up third to Dixie Blossoms in the Guy Walter Stakes when only two lengths beaten on March 3. Fitter for the run and boasts the best Win (60%) and Place (80%) rates of the field. Barrier two gives her a soft run.
