2021 Grand Prix Stakes Betting Tips


Grand Prix Stakes 2021 Best Bet - Gypsy Goddess

This unbeaten Tarzino filly looks an impressive type in the making, winning all three career starts, inlcuding her last start over Pool Pony who looks a main danger - not that he really is.

The $1.35 is short and is not a price I want to be diving into as Apache Chase was a similar quote last week, and a much surer thing than what this filly is as we do not know her ceiling

She has beaten the better horses in this field and looks the clear winner on paper, but it is just a matter of whether you are happy to take the shorts about an unproven three-year-old filly.

Grand Prix Stakes 2021 Next Best Bet - Caboche

He started $7 behind Gypsy Goddess last start and although did drop out badly, I am happy to forgive that effort seeing as he was wide and on the pace for the whole trip.

His prior form was very good when winning two races in-a-row, albeit in races which were not the quality of what he faces here.

From gate five, I am expecting Caboche to be right up on the pace and get the right run in front over this extended trip and prove a much more competitive force.

Grand Prix Stakes 2021 Value Bet - Ironic Miss

This filly has placed at her last two starts, including a second placing over 2100m last time at Wyong so we know she is going to get the trip.

That was on heavy ground which she will not get here, but did record a good track win earlier on in the prep over 1500m showing she has a turn of foot.

Although it is near impossible to see Ironic Miss beating the favourite, a play at the place price looks a worthy bet.
