Outstanding Value in 2018 Tattersall’s Tiara Betting

An open and capacity field of fillies and mares has been taken for Saturday’s Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1350m) at Doomben and there is plenty of value to be found in betting. Three-year-old Champagne Cuddles has been on the verge of breaking into the Group 1 winner’s circle all season and she will be faced with arguably her best chance to date after drawing ideally into the Tattersall’s Tiara field in barrier 4. The Not A Single Doubt filly enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence throughout the 2017 Spring Carnival and finished second in both the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) and Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) most notably. She defied a drift in betting with a dominant win in the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas (1600m) first-up this time and has since been strong in open company; running third in both the Group 1 Kingsford-Smith Cup (1350m) and Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1350m). She’ll enjoy a return to fillies and mares company and is treated well in the weights with only 55kgs in tow. She is the $7 early favourite in the lucrative Fat Odds market. Prompt Response will take plenty of benefit into her second-up run on Saturday and is the sole occupant of the second line of Tattersall’s Tiara betting at $9. The Beneteau mare has been a strong and consistent performer for Gai Waterhouse $ Adrian bott throughout her entire racing career and resumed in February for a dominant win in the Group 2 Breeders’ Classic (1q200m). Running fourth in the Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m), fifth in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) and winning the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) before she was sent for a freshen-up, Prompt Response flew home to finish second in the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1350m) a fortnight ago and could enjoy the run of the race on Saturday from barrier 3. A horse that carries a different form line into this race and who is worth consideration at each-way odds is Kiwi raider Miss Wilson ($18). Miss Wilson is a multiple black type winner and has shown terrific ability on soft going since arriving in Australia and trialling at Eagle Farm. The Stratum mare resumed in January for eighth in the Group 1 Telegraph Stakes (1200m), before running third amongst decent company in the Karaka Millions Handicap (1600m). She was taken forward in the Group 1 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1600m) last time out and never appear in doubt; hitting the line half a length ahead of her rivals for a well-deserved win at the highest level. Regular hoop Vin Colgan will cross the Tasman to pilot the mare in this race and she could prove over the odds at her current price. Dane Ripper winner Invincibella ($17) will have some early work from barrier 15 but appeals at her current price, multiple black type winner Savanna Amour ($11) has drawn the rails and is sure to fight out the finish, while there’s cases to be made for Daysee Doom ($15), Super Cash ($11), Missrock ($26), Invincible Gem ($21) and Moss Trip ($12).
