Empire Rose Stakes Form Guide & Tips


1. Colette ($6.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

Colette is a lovely type and she was impressive last start, but she ideally wants moisture on the surface

Rain is expected to fall during the week, but it can’t be guaranteed. If the track moves into the soft range, we wouldn’t be leaving her out.

2. Mystic Journey (Best Each Way – $6) Bet @ Sportsbet

The 12-time winner is finding it tough to cross the line first, but she’s nearing another big win.

She owns two wins and three placings at Flemington, and the long straight gives her time to warm up.

Include her at each-way odds.

3. Tofane (Best Bet – $3.60) Bet @ Sportsbet

There is little wrong with the form of Tofane, who won consecutive races earlier this preparation.

She then ran third behind Behemoth, fourth behind Incentivise and the second behind I’m Thunderstruck. That form line is stellar, so the $3.60 is well worth taking.

4. Sierra Sue ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet

We have liked Sierra Sue on multiple occasions this season, but not this time. She will likely struggle under these conditions, and the betting markets suggest as much.

5. Still a Star (Best Roughie – $10) Bet @ Sportsbet

That was a gutsy effort to win at Flemington last start and we think she could repeat the dose.

It was her 10th win from 18 starts, so she continues to go under the radar. We’ll happily take the $10 available with bookmakers.

6. Nimalee ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet

She has yet to fully fire this season, and we don’t think that will change here. It’s her first start at Flemington, so she could struggle to adapt.

7. Mirra Vision ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet

She owns three wins from her last five starts, and she is another runner wanting some moisture in the surface.

$26 is a fair price and she could figure in the finish.

8. Hungry Heart ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet

We liked what she showed during her three-year-old campaign, but she hasn’t done much since. Her recent efforts are good enough, but there is still solid betting support.

John Allen is riding well, so that’s in her favour.

9. Amarelinha ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet

The Kiwi hasn’t had much go her way in Australia, but that could all change. She should enjoy the open spaces of Flemington, and the $15 is a fair price.

We’re prepared to include her in first four selections.

10. Sirileo Miss ($17) Bet @ Sportsbet

She is searching for three consecutive wins and she has done it in style. This is a major rise in close though, so she could struggle.

Drawing barrier 15 could end her chances.

11. Harmony Rose ($46) Bet @ Sportsbet

That was a better run for Harmony Rose last start, but we can’t see her finishing close to this field.

She has yet to race at Flemington and she’s not running well enough to consider.

12. Kiku ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet

Punters should never rule out a Chris Waller-trained runner. She ran well last start and she should be peaking for a big race.

$34 is a good price and there is good betting support.

13. Flying Mascot ($9) Bet @ Sportsbet

The daughter of Tavistock scored impressively at Moonee Valley last start, and there has been good betting support.

She is on the rise, but we’re unsure if she can handle this class. The betting support suggests she can, so don’t leave out.

14. Pride of Jenni ($61) Bet @ Sportsbet

She isn’t running well enough and the odds suggest as much.

15. Steinem ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet

Connections have panned out a strange campaign. She is a talented type, that looks like a good stayer in the making.

She could fire up and hit the line late, so consider.

Once again, all odds are with Sportsbet – our No. 1 rated bookmaker. You can join Sportsbet by clicking HERE.
