May 26th, 2017

Kiwi filly Melody Belle ($4.40) remains the outright favourite in 2017 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of Tangled ($5.50) Malahat and Qiji Phoenix; currently sharing the third line at $7 quotes.

Will Melody Belle justify favouritism and win the 2017 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes, or will one of her talented rivals post an upset?

1st

Tangled ($5.50)

Sydney raider Tangled made an outstanding debut to Brisbane racing a fortnight ago and should only improve over 1400m, when he takes his place in the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes field. Having poked clear to break through for a maiden win at Wyong on April 19th, the Snitzel colt flew home on the outside of the field to win the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) last weekend and will have the notable advantage of Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle once more on Saturday afternoon. Sure to find a good position off the pace from barrier 9, Tangled is arguably over the odds at his current quote, given the class of his last-start win over much of this company.

2nd

All Too Huiying ($12)

All Too Huiying ran gallantly for second in the Champagne Classic and there is nothing to see he won’t produce a similar effort when he takes his place in the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes field. All Too Huiying has steadily built to the task this time and finishing fifth in the Group 3 The Schweppervescence (1400m) and third in the Listed Fernhill Handicap (1600m) on April 8th, in what were his two starts prior to the Champagne Classic. All Too Huiying could receive the run of the race from barrier 4 and will be partnered by in-form hoop Brenton Avdulla.

3rd

Malahat ($8)

Malahat faces a big step up in class into this race, but produced a dominant performance to win a Canterbury minor over 1200m by close to three lengths last time out and represents good value in BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes betting markets. Third in both the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) and the Chris Toogood Handicap (1200m), the latter behind subsequent Group 1 champion Invader in autumn, the Exceed And Excel colt will have to overcome a wide draw, but will be partnered by James Doyle.
