Moonee Valley Racecourse is set to host its first meeting of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival on Saturday September 11 when the Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes Day takes place.
As part of the exciting line-up on the day three Group status races will run including the $200,000 Group 2 W H Stocks Stakes (1600m), a quality weight-for-age showdown for mares.
The other two feature events worth a punt on in the Ladbrokes.com.au markets are the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) and the Group 3 McEwen Stakes (1000m), both of which are also weight-for-age events.
The 2010 W H Stocks Stakes will likely to be contested by a field of mares that previously ran in other WFA races held earlier at the carnival including the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m), Group 2 JJ Liston Stakes (1400m) and the Group 2 Memsie Stakes (1400m).
Looking out for the top performing mares in these events gives punters an excellent heads-up for their W H Stocks Stakes betting at Ladbrokes.com.au.
When seeking an early guide for the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day during the 2010 Melbourne Cup Carnival, taking note of the W H Stocks Stakes results is a good tip.
High quality mares that run in the W H Stocks Stakes often have the Myer Classic as their main spring goal, and so if there is a dominant mare for the season punters can get in on their lucrative early odds in the ante-post markets at Ladbrokes.com.au for the Myer Classic.
The 2010 W H Stocks Stakes nominations close on September 6 and we will be the first to publish the list of entered mares so bookmark this page.
Following the nominations the final field of acceptances come out on September 9, which is when the Ladbrokes.com.au markets will really start to heat up.
