Following her emphatic victory in yesterday’s Expressway Stakes at Rosehill, Alizee has tightened into $4.50 outright favourite with TAB for the All-Star Mile to be run at Flemington on Saturday, March 16.
Despite a raceday betting drift that saw her lose favouritism to Trapeze Artist, the James Cummings-trained mare easily saluted in a manner similar to her first-up win at Randwick in the Christmas Classic on December 29.
“Alizee was an $8 equal favourite with a doubtful The Autumn Sun for the All-Star Mile entering yesterday’s races but after toying with her rivals at Rosehill, she became TAB’s outright favourite at $4.50,” TAB’s Trent Langskaill said.
“Considering her record of seven wins and three minor placings from 16 starts, Alizee appears to be a strong chance of making the All-Star Mile line-up even if Racing Victoria need to select her as one of the four wildcards, which are announced on Monday, March 4.”
Public voting on the All-Star Mile will be open until Monday, February 18, with the top ten vote-getters who provisionally accept their places in the field to be revealed on Thursday, February 21.
