Just 12 runners have been confirmed to contest Saturday’s Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) at Warwick Farm; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several opportunities to place a lucrative wager.
Always Allison was particularly impressive when taking out her only competitive start to date, and as a result has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in 2015 Sweet Embrace Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au; currently available at a quote of $3.20 for success.
Jumping from the gates well in the Warwick Farm minor over 1150m on February 4th, jockey Glyn Schofield settled Always Allison in prime position on the heels of the race’s early leaders; receiving an ideal run in transit before displaying a keen turn of foot late to hit the line close to three lengths in the clear of her closest rival.
Allocated the ideal barrier 1, Always Allison will again be partnered by Schofield on Saturday and arguably offers punters the best value for money as a selection in a 2015 Sweet Embrace Stakes quinella or trifecta bet.
While yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of bets for success in 2015 Sweet Embrace Stakes markets, Speak Fondly has maintained status as sole occupant of the second line at a quote of $4.20.
Unlucky to be checked just after jumping from the gates in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) on debut, the Northern Meteor filly was forced to settle towards the tail of the field, but recovered well enough to run on for a credible third.
Allocated the central barrier 6, trainer Gai Waterhouse is confident of first-up success for Speak Fondly in the 2015 Sweet Embrace Stakes.
Interestingly figuring as one of only two other runners to currently register as a quote of less-than $10 in 2015 Sweet Embrace betting markets alongside Lady Jivago ($9.50), Micucci has been charged with overcoming the outside barrier on Saturday and as a result, may offer punters the best value for money to finish in the top three.
Yet to place in any of her three competitive starts so far, Micucci stamped her claims as a serious racing prospect last time out when overcoming an early check and a late block to finish a credible fourth in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m).
