2019 Empire Rose Futures Tips

The Group One Empire Rose Stakes is a fillies and mares WFA event run at Flemington over a mile.

This prestigious race is one of the four groups 1s on the first day of the Melbourne Cup carnival. 

Some champion gallopers have etched their name into the history of this race, including recent stars More Joyous, Shoals and fan favourite I Am A Star. 

This year, horses such such as Alizee, Fidelia and Princess Jenni will be aimed at the race.

Empire Rose Futures Best Bet - Princess Jenni @ $11

The Group One winning mare put another score on the board winning the Group Two Stocks Stakes at Moonee Valley on September 27.

She was second up into that race and simply proved a class above over the mile.

These 1600m trips are what she has been aimed at this prep and, her next two starts will be over this distance. 

I am expecting peak performances from this mare in this week's Toorak and in the Empire Rose.

She will be well suited at the weights being a four-year-old mare and is a Group One winner, so her handicap points would normally see her at the top of the weights.

Empire Rose Futures Best Bet: Princess Jenni - $11 via Ladbrokes

Empire Rose Futures Value Bet - Flit @ $15

We have seen for the past few years the Thousand Guineas runners and winners head towards this race, getting very low in on the weights.

Shoals and I Am A Star are the two most recent winners of the race after progressing from the Thousand Guineas, while Stay With Me and Amphitrite were both beaten favourites for the event.

Flit looks one of the big chances in the Thousand Guineas, and I believe she will likely progress to this race if she wins this weekend.

She has an explosive turn of foot and would just need some luck in running to be competitive being so low in the weights. 

Right now she looks a great bet at the $15.
