Only six three-year-old fillies have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick; offering punters exceptional value from a betting point of view and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Lake Geneva ($3.20) returned to racing for a convincing maiden win a fortnight ago and remains outright favourite in 2015 Silver Shadow Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of Kimberley Star ($3.60) and Speak Fondly ($4.80).
Will Lake Geneva post a maiden black type win in the 2015 Silver Shadow Stakes or will one of her talented rivals find the line in the clear?
Lake Geneva ($3.20)
Yet to finish outside the first three in five career starts, Lake Geneva will carry a very-manageable 54kgs, will leave from the ideal barrier 3 and will be partnered by Tommy Berry in the 2015 Silver Shadow Stakes. Running a close second in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) on debut, the Fastnet Rock filly boxed on for an impressive third in each of the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) and Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m); returning to the paddock after again placing third in the Group 3 Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m) on Day 2 of The Championships. Lake Geneva is the class horse of the field and still offers great value for money at current odds.
Fireworks posted several good results for Gerald Ryan through autumn and undoubtedly offers punters the best value for money in 2015 Silver Shadow Stakes betting markets at current $7 odds for success or $3.20 to run a place. Performing well in a pair of minor sprints upon debuting to racing, the daughter of Snitzel delivered Lake Geneva defeat in the Widden Stakes before running a credible third in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) most notably. Fireworks could very well receive the run of the race from barrier 2 and will be partnered by Brenton Avdulla.
Speak Fondly ($4.80)
Speak Fondly is a proven performer over course and distance and at black type company, and also offers great value for money at current Silver Shadow Stakes odds. Debuting for third in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) in October, the Northern Meteor filly returned this year for second in the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) before posting an impressive win in the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) most notably on March 14th.
