Heavens Above has returned to racing in exceptional form this time and remains clear $3.80 favourite in 2016 Epona Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Posting a commendable race record of three wins and a further seven minors through only twelve competitive starts so far, Heavens Above resumed this time for second in the Vincents Forensic Accountants BM78 (1350m) before again finishing just off the pace in the ATC Farewells Jim Cassidy BM78 (1500m).

Overcoming an early check to finish third in the ATB More Than Winning BM85 (1600m), the Street Cry mare is seeking a third-consecutive race win when she lines up for the Epona Stakes, having taken out each of the ATC Ab (1400m) and Group 3 Aspiration Handicap (1600m) most recently.

Allocated barrier 6, Heavens Above has been confirmed to be partnered by notable Sydney hoop Tye Angland in the Epona Stakes.

All Cerise has arguably found career-best form through her current racing preparation and undoubtedly offers punters the best value for money in 2016 Epona Stakes betting markets at a quote of $4.20 for success.

Confirmed to line up for eleventh start since resumingĀ in the Cellarbrations BM75 (1200m) on September 23rd, All Cerise returned to winning form in a Canterbury minor over 1550m on December 11th before taking out each of her next three starts with relative ease.

Having run second in the Aspiration Quality a fortnight ago, the Redoute’s Choice mare will leave from the ideal barrier 3 with in-form apprentice Dylan Dunn in the saddle on Saturday.

Godolphin runner Alegria has continued to receive steady support in 2016 Epona Stakes betting markets this week and has firmed into a quote of $8.50 to currently register as outright third-favourite.

Finishing outside the places only three times through twelve career starts, the daughter of Medaglia D’oro finished fifth in the Group 3 Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) on January 8th; progressing to second behind Testashadow in the Gifts.com.au BM85 (1600m) before placing third in the Aspiration Quality last time out.

Three runners; Vergara, Sweet Fire and Skyline Blush remain locked on the fourth line of Epona Stakes betting at $9 quotes while Adorabeel ($12) has continued to cut from opening odds of $14 to register as clear market mover.
