Distance: 1000 metres

The Red Roses Stakes is a nice little sprint race for three-year-old fillies only and typically assembles a big field of evenly matched females where finding the winner can be a bit of a minefield for punters.

The weighted conditions of the race favours the better class fillies going around and any gallopers with straight track experience and an affinity for the course are the ones to watch out for when doing the form.

Bleu Roche (2019) ran fourth in the Gr3 Red Anchor Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley before proving too classy for her rivls in this event for the Peter & Paul Snowden stable.

Recent Red Roses Stakes winners include Jorda (2017) and Spright (2016).
