Since 2008 just one Coolmore Classic winner has come off a worse-than-fourth lead-up when Heavens Above (2017) ran ninth in the Millie Fox Stakes before saluting at blowout Coolmore Classic odds of $26.

The following year Daysee Doom did the Millie Fox – Coolmore Classic double as a $21 roughie in betting on the Group 1.

Coolmore Classic odds favour fillies and mares with proven form up to a mile and Millie Fox Stakes is the most successful recent lead-up.

The race’s barrier draw doesn’t often impact too heavily on the Coolmore Classic odds with a wide spread of winners from across the gates.

Coolmore Classic Field

Each autumn the Coolmore Classic field attracts Australia’s best female sprinter-milers and often attracts a near capacity field including in 2017 when Heavens Above faced 18 rivals in a bumper 19-starter Coolmore Classic field.

The female gallopers in the Coolmore Classic field come from a variety of different lead-up races including the Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m) at Rosehill and the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm on Chipping Norton Stakes Day.

Many fillies and mares coming out of the Coolmore Classic field go on to take on the boys over 100m further in April’s lucrative Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick Racecourse.

Coolmore Classic nominations close the Monday before the race followed by the release of the final field of acceptances on the Wednesday.
