Ladbrokes Tip: The Stocks Stakes is a good betting guide for the Myer Classic during the spring

The W.H. Stocks Stakes is a Group 2 race for mares contested on Moir Stakes Night at Moonee Valley on a Friday evening in late September or early October during the annual Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Racing at the meeting is headlined by the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m) for sprinters, while the Group 2 Stutt Stakes (1600m) for Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas types and the Stocks Stakes are the major support races.

Offering $200,000 in total prize money the Stocks Stakes is run over 1600m under weight-for-age conditions and makes a nice lead-up to other mares-only races in the spring including Flemington’s Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) on Victoria Derby Day.

The latest edition of the Stocks Stakes ran on Friday September 27, 2019 and was won by the race favourite Princess Jenni.

Stocks Stakes Betting

Stocks Stakes odds are led by in-form mares with form against similar company with proven ability at weight-for-age and over the mile. Runners that have winning form at the distance and previous experience at the tight Moonee Valley circuit also sit high up the Stocks Stakes odds.

Betting also favours graduates of earlier Melbourne lead-up runs for the mares like Caulfield’s Group 3 Cockram Stakes (1200m) and the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) at Flemington a fortnight before the race.

The season’s best WH Stocks Stakes 2019 betting odds and links to our markets will be provided right here the week of the race so stay tuned for the top Moonee Valley racing odds this spring.


Stocks Stakes Field

The Stocks Stakes field attracts a quality field of weight-for-age mares with ability over the mile.

Many come into the race on the back of a lead-up run earlier in the spring in something like the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) at Flemington, which produced the 2015 Stocks Stakes winner Fenway (9th) and the 2017 champion I Am A Star (7th). In 2018 I Am A Star returned to complete the Let’s Elope Stakes / Stocks Stakes double, while the 2019 Stocks Stakes winner Princess Jenni improved on a lead-up seventh in the Let’s Elope Stakes.

Fenway meanwhile also went on to run second in the Myer Classic two runs later. The next year saw Don’t Doubt Mamma (2016) complete the Let’s Elope Stakes – Stocks Stakes double. The Let’s Elope Stakes also produced the 2015 runner-up May’s Dream (3rd) who finished fourth in the Myer Classic. In 2014 the Let’s Elope Stakes runner-up Dear Demi won the Stocks Stakes next start, while the winner of the former Commanding Jewel ran third in the race next start.

Stocks Stakes Tips

Good WH Stocks Stakes betting tips to take in the spring include looking at mares with ability at the track and distance, previous Group winners, past winners over the mile distance and those coming off lead-up runs in the Let’s Elope Stakes.

Single figure hopefuls have a dominant recent record in the race so another useful tip is to pick a runner in the top half of the markets. Any mares coming down in class off an earlier Group 1 spring race also make for a nice Stocks Stakes winning tip.

Stocks Stakes Form Guide

The WH Stocks Stakes form guide features all the essential race information including the jockeys, trainers, barriers and lead-up runs of the mares in the field. Group 1 form to follow into the Group 2 can come via the Memsie Stakes (1400m) held the month before as Atlantic Jewel completed that Group 1 spring double in 2013.

The Stocks stakes form has also stacked up in other elite level races including when Atlantic Jewel (2013) ran second next start in Caulfield’s Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) before a win in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) that October.
