12 classy fillies have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm Racecourse; offering punters exceptional several key chances to place a winning wager and take advantage of generous odds.
First Seal was a standout performer over the 2014 Spring Carnival, and has opened as and maintained status as clear favourite in 2015 Surround Stakes betting markets, currently available at odds of $2.30 for success with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
Taking out the Daily Press Group Maiden (1100m) on August 13th, First Seal placed second to Sweynesse in a minor over 1400m before taking out each of the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) in succession; returning to the paddock following a strong performance for second in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) on October 11th.
Returning to racing for a close second in the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) two weeks ago, all signs seem to point towards a strong win for First Seal in the 2015 Surround Stakes.
Having opened at odds of $7.50 in 2015 Surround Stakes betting markets, punters have rallied around last start winner Adrift, who is now tied on the second line with Winx at a still-generous quote of $6 for success.
Claiming back-to-back victories in minor sprinters through November, Adrift was given little chance of first-up success when meeting a talent-rich field in the Light Fingers Stakes, but displayed an exceptional turn of foot to hit the line a length in the clear of First Seal.
Allocated the ideal barrier 6, Adrift has been confirmed to be partnered by in-form jockey Tye Angland this weekend.
Winx was unlucky not to break through for a victory at the highest level over spring, but appears in line for a successful autumn despite finishing seventh in the Light Fingers Stakes first-up.
Winning two Sydney minor sprints upon debuting to racing, the Street Cry filly charged home to take out the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1400m) on September 20th before running second to First Seal in the Flight Stakes.
Charged with overcoming the slightly wide barrier 9, Winx is sure to be boosted by notable jockey Jason Collett in the 2015 Surround Stakes.
