Mares such as Melody Belle, Red Tracer and Typhoon Tracy have all been sucessful in this event, adding strong value to their pedigree pages.

In recent years, fillies have had a very good record in the race, but this year the race will be run without any three-year-olds and will have some star quality at the top of the field.

Tofane currently heads the market for the 2021 Empire Rose Stakes.

2021 Empire Rose Stakes Tips


Empire Rose Stakes 2021 Best Bet - Mystic Journey

'Betty' has had the perfect preparation leading up to this race with back-to-back placings and just needing the mile journey.

She draws towards the inside and what we have seen from her in the past is that she can take a forward spot when running over this distance, so no doubt the plan will be to stay off the fence, but really utilise that gate.

If she gets the clear air, we may just see Mystic Journey back to her best which is a beautiful sight to see.

Empire Rose Stakes 2021 Next Best Bet - Tofane

Her run in the Toorak Handicap was nothing short of great with that big weight and being held up for room along the inside, beaten by what could possibly be a star of the turf.

Tofane is a three-time Group One winner racing in terrific heart so there is no knocking her on form or what she has done leading into this race.

I still hold a slight reservation over her over the mile which has stopped me from landing with her on top, but all-in-all she seemed to run it out strongly in the Toorak.

Empire Rose Stakes 2021 Value Bet - Flying Mascot

This mare jumped out of the box last week when winning the Tesio Stakes by nearly five lengths in what was a soft last 100m for her.

It was a peach of a ride from Blaike McDougall who retains the ride here and from barrier seven, she looks to be afforded every opportunity to produce a similar performance.

Being a run that stood up well above her previous runs, there of course needs to be a question of whether Flying Mascot can hold that form, but if she does, then the Tom Dabernig mare must be given a chance.
