Ladbrokes Tip: The Sweet Embrace Stakes is a good lead-up for Golden Slipper bound fillies

The Sweet Embrace Stakes is one of a number of Group 2 support races held at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Chipping Norton Stakes Day on a Saturday in late February – early March each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

The meeting’s headline race is the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m), and the Sweet Embrace Stakes along with the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) are the key lead-up races for two-year-olds heading into the Group 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens a fortnight later.

Run over 1200m under set weights conditions, the Sweet Embrace Stakes is open only to two-years-old fillies while the Skyline Stakes is the equivalent race for the juvenile colts and geldings.

Offering a total of $200,000 in prize money the Sweet Embrace Stakes winner takes out $115,000 in stakes for connections and is exempt from Golden Slipper Stakes ballot. The last filly to complete the Sweet Embrace Stakes – Golden Slipper Stakes double was Crystal Lily (2010).

The latest edition of the Sweet Embrace Stakes takes place on Saturday March 2, 2019.

Sweet Embrace Stakes Tips

Looking for fillies with a past win over similar distance in Sydney is crucial when doing the Sweet Embrace Stakes tips. Maidens rarely win the race, but Seabrook did in 2018 breaking her maiden status in her first Sydney start, and favourites have a credible recent strike rate.

Past form at the track is a good indicator, while many haven’t been over the distance before so looking for fillies with strong form over 1100m makes for successful Sweet Embrace Stakes tipping.
