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.
Jorda (2017) ran sixth in the Listed Crockett Stakes ocer 1200m at Moonee valley before scoring a stylish victory in this event and recent Red Roses Stakes winners include Spright (2016) and Secret Agenda (2015).
