Champion mare Melody Belle returns to racing on Saturday at Rosehill in the Missile Stakes (1200m) and heads the market with Sportsbet.com.au.
The Jamie Edwards trained mare had a fabulous Autumn prep despite not winning and looks in ripping order based off her work and trial. Despite a wide gate, she’s favourite at $3.80, marginally out from $3.60.
When markets opened, there was immediate interest for Flit, who opened $6.50 and firmed straight away to $5.50, but has settled at $6. Second pick in betting is Eduardo, who is $4.20 and is out to $4.50.
Le Romain has had interest at a price, into $18 from $21.
