Memsie Stakes Form Guide & Tips
1. Fifty Stars ($27) Bet @ Sportsbet
Fifty Stars isn’t the best fresh up performer and he has yet to win from five attempts at Caulfield, so we’re prepared to leave him out of calculations.
$27 is a fair price for the 10-time winner, but we would prefer to wait till later in the spring.
2. Behemoth (Best Bet – $4.20) Bet @ Sportsbet
Flashed home to finish second across the line in Adelaide, but he would win the race via protest.
He is a proven Group 1 winner and his last start win showed how forward he is this season. He like Caulfield and loves the distance, so the $4.20 is a value price.
Jamie Kah rides and he looks tough to hold out.
3. Streets of Avalon ($19) Bet @ Sportsbet
Not lacking in experience but this race might be a touch beyond him. Only eighth last start and he would need to improve a lot on that performance.
Punters get value odds, but there hasn’t been much money for him after opening at $17.
4. Archedemus ($81) Bet @ Sportsbet
The odds tell the story. He is a nine-time winner and has won over $1 million in stakes, but we would be shocked if he caused an upset here.
Expect his odds to continue to drift.
5. Red Can Man ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet
Never too far away and he was only 1.4 lengths behind Sierra Sue last start, but he will need to find a length.
The former Perth-based runner hasn’t done too badly since arriving in Melbourne. He won four back at Caulfield and a repeat of that could see him run in the placings.
6. Sansom ($35) Bet @ Sportsbet
Didn’t follow up a win on this track with much last start. Doesn’t get any easier here and we expect him to struggle to keep up.
Specked at big odds, but likely from loyal followers.
7. Aegon (Best Roughie – $11) Bet @ Sportsbet
The Kiwi won in his Australian debut at Rosehill over North Pacific before disappointing in two runs at Randwick.
He didn’t get everything to suit and he’s unbeaten both fresh up and in two runs at the distance, so we like his chances on Saturday.
Punters get double-figure odds and they’re worth taking.
8. Beau Rossa ($9) Bet @ Sportsbet
Caused interference when losing on protest to Behemoth last start. That was still a nice run and he will enjoy getting the inside draw.
Likely to push forward and make his own luck from there.
9. Colette ($11) Bet @ Sportsbet
A nice type that could be in for a big spring, but the 1400m is likely too short. She finished second behind Verry Elleegant over 1600m last prep, so that’s an encouraging effort.
Damien Oliver rides, and if there’s speed up front, she could finish over the top of them. An inclusion to trifecta and first four bets.
10. Tofane (Best Each Way – $4.40) Bet @ Sportsbet
Winning form bodes well at this level and Tofane comes off a win in the Stradbroke Handicap. She hasn’t raced since June, but she looks in good order.
Mike Moroney is having a good run, and the seven-time winner is in career-best form. She is unbeaten in three starts over 1400m, and punters get value odds.
Barrier four is ideal and Craig Williams takes the ride.
11. Inspirational Girl ($7) Bet @ Sportsbet
A capable six-year-old that owns nine wins from 12 starts, so that winning record is tough to overlook.
She comes from Ascot with a good record and five of her wins have come over this distance. She got the better of Too Close the Sun two back, which is a good form guide.
Watch for late betting moves.
12. Sierra Sue ($10) Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old mare is searching for three consecutive wins after scoring at Mildura and Caulfield. Her most recent win was classy and she’s capable of going on with it.
$10 is a touch short for our liking, but we wouldn’t be surprised if she finished in the money.
