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.
Spright (2016) won the listed Crowley Stakes over 1200m at Randwick in Sydney before making her way to Melbourne to win this event in classy style and recent Red Roses Stakes winners include Secret Agenda (2015) and Onemorezeta (2014).
