Ladbrokes Tip: The Millie Fox Stakes makes a good lead-up to the Queen Of The Turf Stakes later in the autumn

The Millie Fox Stakes for fillies and mares is one of three Group 2 races run at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Hobartville Stakes Day in February each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Run over 1300m under set weights plus penalties conditions the race offers $200,000 in total prize money including $115,000 to the Millie Fox Stakes winner. Fillies and mares may come into the race via a run in the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m) a fortnight earlier and it is a key lead-up to some top autumn features.

Group 1 races could be on the agenda next for the fillies and mares coming out of the Millie Fox Stakes including Randwick’s Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) in April during The Championships.

Think the bookies have the top chances all safe in Millie Fox Stakes betting this season but first-up leaning towards FOXPLAY despite Chris Waller’s Foxwedge mare giving a bit of weight away with 58kg. Gets the run of the race from the barrier (3) with Winx’s regular rider Hugh Bowman on. She performs well fresh (5:1-3-0) and was only a length beaten last start in Melbourne when fifth to Shoals in the Myer Classic (1600m). This is easier. EGYPTIAN SYMBOL ($5.50) is the value with Each Way claims, the Bjorn Baker-trained daughter of Stratum one on the outside of Foxplay and has the fitness edge aver two placings this campaign. The latest was a second in the Breeders Classic (1200m), which has been a strong formline for this race. Breeders Classic winner PROMPT RESPONSE ($3.50) is the favourite and presents fitter after her first-up victory.
