Memsie Stakes 2022 Field & Odds

Memsie Stakes 2022 Best Bet - Alligator Blood

After winning the Stradbroke in emphatic fashion, the one-time Australian Guineas winner looks back to his brilliant best and after watching some work, he is in for a big prep.

I had never felt he was a proper Group One horse, but after last prep, the Waterhouse & Bott stable look to have worked their magic to re-coup something like that three-year-old form, where he looked close to the best horse in the country.

Ridden a lot colder than he was back in the day, this seems to have rejuvenated his racing career, along with a clean bill of health after what has been an injury riddled career.

Memsie Stakes 2022 Next Best Bet - Cascadian

He does not win out of turn at the highest level, but is a class act when right as he showed at the end of last prep when storming down the outside to beat Tofane in the Group One All Aged Stakes.

Cascadian has been trialling alongside last week's Winx Stakes winner Anamoe and is going just has good to the eye, so that is an ominous warning to his rivals ahead of the spring.

The proven and hardened horse at this level, he still maintains that touch of brilliance over these shorter trips, which sees him as a live chance.

Memsie Stakes 2022 Value Bet - I'm Thunderstruck

Arguably the best horse in the race, I'm Thunderstruck comes into this race with improvement to come, although could still win on ability.

Runner-up in the All-Star Mile when third-up last prep before heading to Sydney and marginally beaten by Lawrence winner Mr Brightside in the Doncaster shows the level that he can get to this prep .

The Cox Plate is the main aim, but the stable have him a run ahead than what he was last prep, which is why he must be included in all exotics and multiples.
