Having opened her racing career in good form, talented filly Twirl has secured outright favouritism in betting markets for the 2014 Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick this weekend at a current quote of $2.60.
Twirl produced a strong turn of foot to finish second behind boom colt Rubick in the TAB Iphone App Plate (1000m) on debut, and again performed well when third behind leading filly Mossfun and Ygritte in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) last time out.
Despite receiving the wide gate 10 at Wednesday’s Sweet Embrace Stakes barrier draw, punters have maintained the talented Lonhro filly as clear favourite for this weekend’s Group 2, having already placed a number of wagers for a Twirl victory.
Fresh off the back of success on debut in the Listed Sports 1000 (1000m) at Flemington two weeks ago, exiting prospect Bring Me The Maid is currently featuring as $5 second-favourite for 2014 Sweet Embrace Stakes glory.
Trainer Peter Moody has a high opinion the Sebring filly, and is expecting a big race from barrier 7, in honour of late, great connection Roy Higgins.
Having received easily the highest number of wagers since Sweet Embrace betting markets first opened only 24 hours ago, Lee Curtis-trained Press Report has registered as the undoubted market mover, currently offered at generous odds of $7.
Press Report has only appeared on track twice since debuting in November, but has quickly stamped her claims as ‘one to watch’ this season, having finished second in both the AAP Industries Plate (1100m) and Group 2 Silver Slipper (1100m).
Allocated the central barrier six for the Sweet Embrace Stakes, regular jockey Glyn Schofield has created good repour with exciting Written Tycoon filly, who is in prime position to claim maiden racing success this weekend.
With the exception of Peter Snowden-trained Occitan ($9), no other runner confirmed to take the stalls for the Sweet Embrace Stakes has so-far received much attention in betting markets, however much is likely to change over the coming 48 hours.
