The Matriarch Stakes (2000m) is always a good race for the mares and the 2019 edition shapes up to be a beauty, along with a tricky one from a betting perspective, if the Sportsbet.com.au market is any guide.
As it stands currently, there are $5 equal favourites in the shape of kiwi mare Rondinella, who touched $4.80. Girl Tuesday is also at $5 after opening $4.80, with a step up in trip looking ideal for her.
If you’re looking for one at value, there has been specking for Miss Siska, who opened $34 and has tightened into $20 with some each way bets roll in for her. Spanish Reef ($13-$15-$12) has also had early admirers.
